      FAMILY HISTORY SKETCH: The following biographical sketch was written by Agnes Simon Riesett, from oral history that had come down in the family.
      "Caroline Gibmeyer was born in 1859 and married Frederick Osterman. They had two children--Agnes, born 1885 and Fred born 1893. Frederick Osterman was a sea-faring man. He had an encyclopedia and when ever a discussion arose when guests were visiting, he would say to his son, "Freddie, get me my encyclopedia," in order to settle the discussion. In later years, he had a quarrel with the parish priest and threatened that if any member of his family went to set foot in church again, he would cut off their leg. When Caroline became ill, her sister-in-law, Agnes Gibmeyer, felt it her duty to warn her to see a priest. She was apparently "persona non grata" with Frederick Osterman. (This may have been due to the fact that he felt he had been "done out of the house" when the family home was sold to John Frederick and Agnes rather than to his wife.) So Agnes prepared a chicken soup for the invalid and sent her daughter Anne over to deliver it with the message that "it was better to get to heaven with one leg than to burn in hell with two." I don't know if the message had the desired effect or not."
