I am looking for the THOMAS, RUBITSCHUNG and HANNER FAMILIES. Christie
V. THOMAS lived in the Copper Country most of his adult life, until his
death in 1959 in Gay. He had 2 sons, Clyde (my father), and Chester Paul,
and daughters Christine Dorothy and Alice Claire. Chester Paul died in a
cave-in while playing at an old mine near Gay around 1929 or 1930. Christie
V. was married to Matilda RUBITSCHUNG, daughter of Adolf RUBITSCHUNG and
Rosalia HANNER. Matilda was born March 14th, 1895, I believe in or about
Lake Linden. Christie was born in 1881 in Lake Co. Illinois, and I suspect
may have come to the copper country to work in the mines. I suspect that he
and Matilda were married sometime between 1910 and 1918. In 1918, they
homesteaded in South Dakota with other THOMAS family members for about ten
years, but returned to the Copper Country after 1928. After Christie's
death, Matilda was the housekeeper at the Catholic parish in Lake Linden for
many years. I am especially interested in the RUBITSCHUNG and HANNER
FAMILIES. Please respond to Mike Thomas at firstname.lastname@example.org
