Rembering Earl and Tony Boes
as told by Lorraine Nieland Starman,
I sure do remember some of the relatives such as
Earl Boes and Tony Boes. Tony lived across the road from uncle
Herman Nieland and Herman lived in the same section of land that
we did. The farms were back to back. Actually it was all one farm
but grandpa split in two when Herman married Tillie so dad farmed
the east half (120 acres) and Herman the west half. His daughter
Dorothy (Venteicher of Ft. Dodge now) and I used to play together.
The Boes boys used to ride to school in a car pool my dad, Tony
Boes, and uncle Herman as well as Ben Ricke, a neighbor put together.
We only lived about 3 1/2 miles from Breda. The folks played cards
in a neighborhood card group and the kids would go along. The
Boes were one of the families in it. I remember rather vaguely
Clarence Boes too as Dad, I, and Denny [Nieland] went there once
with one of our cows to bring home a bull from his place. I am
surprised my mom allowed that. She was so "proper."
