As remembered by Marcia Wollschlager in March 2008: Dad went to the one-room country school a mile or so down the valley. There was one out house for the girls and one for the boys. The girls out house had a knot hole in the back in a low area which had fallen out. When the guys would hear a girl go into the toilet, they would run to the back of the toilet. Why you may ask? Not to peek, but to grab a stick and poke it in the hole to scare the girls. One day dad heard the door slam. He ran around back, grabbed the stick, poked it in the hole and began to rattle it around. Suddenly he hear a "squawK'. He dropped the stick and ran as fast as he could. He had poked the teacher in the butt! She came out of the toilet and scrutenized the kids. He said, "his heart was beating a mile a minute". He tried to look involved in what ever the kids were doing, not looking her way. Must of worked. None of the kids knew what had happened. She didn't figure it out. I don't remember him saying what ever happened to the knot hole. As remembered by Marcia Wollschlager in March 2008: Then there's the story of how Mom & Dad met at the state fair. Her calf was eating his calf's food. Dad was mad. He looked at the name of the kid who's calf was doing this. Saw the name "Naomi", and decided it was an Indian kid. Thought he was going to give that guy a piece of his mind and then discovered, "he" was a "she".

He looked at the name of the kid who's calf was doing this. Saw the name "Naomi", and decided it was an Indian kid. Thought he was going to give that guy a piece of his mind and then discovered, "he" was a "she". As remembered by Marcia Wollschlager in March 2008: How many deer did my mother shoot on just one hunting trip? Three, she was an excellent shot. She Rememberances about Naomi Niemann from her daughter Linda, provided to Linda's niece Heather Abrahamson 4/2008: "Your Grandmother loved flowers! She had the wonderfully smelling peonies that marked the start of Spring. Each year huge bushes flanked our farm house to the east. Mom had white, pale pink and the crimson magenta varieties. I think the last color was my favorite. I would, as a young girl, bring them in by the bouquets and adorn the house with them. They always smelled so sweet. But, then came the ants. They wiggled their way from the blossoms onto the kitchen table. There I would mindlessly squash them. (Today, however, I would carry them to the outside where they belonged; they were not hurting anybody anyway.)
Mom planted a massive flower garden directly east of this area as well. There were long (and I mean long!) rows of gladiolas in rainbow colors. Yellow, pink, white, orange, purple...I cannot recall them all. They stood majestic until the first good Spring rainstorm toppled them! It did not dismay my mother from replanting the following year. She also had bachelor buttons, carnations, marigolds and another favorite of mine: snap dragons. I always wondered how they were so aptly named. They were as unusual looking as their name sounded.
In a long trail running north to south of the house, edging the yard in front of the house, dozens of daffodils sprung up. There were mostly deep yellow ones, with a large bell and lighter-colored daffodils, too. It was amongst these that another treasure grew. The deep purpled iris! Gosh, they were beautiful! Cranberry colored ones grew, too, but mostly the former were dominant. Fresh asparagus grew between flower stalks. They were sweet and tender. So plentiful were they, that it was hard to keep up with at times. I cut them as I was instructed to do, but thankfully was never mandated to eat them!
Dad had built an outdoor grill north of the house quite possibly before I was born in 1955. I don't remember. It was always fun to grill burgers and smell the bidding treat. The grill was surrounded by firey orange poppies. They grew tall and seemed to bow with the weight of the petal. They remained for a long while, too.
There were hollyhocks that adorned one side of the summer kitchen/wood house. I would fashion a bride from a white bell, a maid of honor from a deep pink one, then bridesmaids from remaining pastel pink bells. You see, I was taught to pinch off a bud for the head. If you peeled back the green at the base of the bud, tiny holes emerged. Then, you took the bell of the flower, leave a tiny bit of stem and pushed the stem into the bud's aperture. I lined them up accordingly as I played on the summer kitchen's single stone step. It felt good to be a part of a beautiful wedding for the day!
Have you seen orange tiger lilies? They were the only neighbor to the rhubarb plants that grew each year. They seemed to fit perfectly together and thrived from the best fertilizer one had...the outhouse. Yes, I said outhouse. They grew directly behind it. Asparagus flourished here, too. I guess mom liked her asparagus! As your Grandma Naomi was a superb baker, she made delicious rhubarb pies from her bounty as well.
I don't want to forget mentioning the lilac bush that decorated the side of the one car garage west of the house. When the 'tweedle-dee' of the red-winged blackbird announced Spring was upon us, one was sure to see and smell the lilac bush. It was taller than the garage and fairly wide. The dripping branches of flowers brought a fragrant smell when you entered the yard by car. It's singular beauty was there to greet you, too.
Perhaps it is no wonder that your Aunt Marcia became a Master gardener. I would say that all of us kids, in some way, have carried on this love of flora. Your grandmother's favorite flower? She may have had more than one, but I remember she loved the sweet smell of the delicate gardenia. Aunt Marcia so honored her with a gardenia corsage when she and Uncle Evan married in 1971. It was a good memory."

As remembered by Marcia Wollschlager in March 2008: Grandma Nellie was told to go to the pasture to get the work horses when she was a child. She was told not to ride the horse back. Well, she managed to get up on the horse, no reins, which took off running for the barn. Horses know that coming in to the barn means feed! She was in trouble the horse was galloping, the barn had a low door and she was too scared to jump. She was scraped off when the horse ran into the barn. She got a whooping for disobeying.

Grandma Niemann (Nellie), lied about her age, put her hair up, lowered her skirt hem, ran away from home, and married John Niemann.
As a married woman years later she found a gun that Grandpa was cleaning, decided he meant to do her in and ran away to the nieghbors and ended up at Aunt Vera's house in Spring Green.

     From Delores Gerhke: Annie Richart McClain's parents were Catholic. She and Arthur ran off and got married when Anna was 16. Her folks made them get married again in the church. They also had money when they married. He bought her fur coats and lots of clothes. He bought a farm and started buying cattle by getting loans at the bank. Then the market crashed and the banks wanted their money. They lost everything. Viola McClain moved in with a family to do maid work.

In the spring of 1850 John McClain crossed the Plains to seek a fortune in the gold fields of California. Four months were required to make the journey. The Indians were numerous and dangerous and the little company in which he traveled had many close calls for their lives. John McClain met with remarkable success in mining, and in three months took thirteen thousand dollars from his claim. With this he returned to Wisconsin and purchased from Nelson Dewey a tract of wild land near Potosi, on which he made extensive improvements, clearing it up, and making a fine farm, on which he lived for some years. In 1852 he married Miss Annie Rupp, the daughter of John and Margaret (Houff) Rupp, both born in Rhine country, Germany. Mr. Rupp and his family came to Pennsylvania in 1836, where he worked as a mason until 1842, when he cam West to Wisconsin. Mrs. Rupp died in Pennsylvania a short time before the removal of the family to the West. Mr. Rupp died at Potosi. Mrs. McClain was born in Germany in 1834, and spent the latter part of the girlhood in Wisconsin.

After their marriage Mr. and Mrs. McClain went to Kansas in 1857, with the intention of making a permanent home in the State. After a thorough inspection they were satisfied Grant county offered more attractions for a farming career, and they came back to Wisconsin. Mr. McClain purchased an extensive tract of wild land in Grant county, to which he has added from time to time until he now owns a choice farm of five hundred acres, over half of which is under cultivation. In 1868 he put up fine and substantial farm buildings, and from time to time has improved and beautified his residence until this has become one of the more desirable county homes in Southwestern Wisconsin. For many years, in addition to his ordinary farming, he has carried on expensive operations in raising stock.

Mr. and Mrs. John McClain have had a family of twelve children: (1) John, born in Grant county in 1853, married Miss Grace Thurtell, and lives on his farm and cattle ranch in South Dakota. They have five children: John, Grace, Bertha, Glenn and Henry. (2) George, born in Grant county in 1855, married Miss Laura Chadrick, and is a farmer in the town of Paris. They have three sons, Charles, Arthur and Willard. (4) Margaret, born in 1859, married S. S. Vannatta, who is a farmer in the town of Harrison. They have four children: Albert, Maggie, Hattie and Lillian. (5) Albert, born in 1861, married Miss Alice Richards, of British Hollow, and lives in South Dakota, where he does an extensive business as a horse dealer, buying for the eastern markets. They have two children, Bessie and Mabel. (6) Charles, born in April, 1864, died in 1879, in the flower of his early manhood. (7) Laura, born in May, 1866, is the wife of Antone Rupp, a resident farmer in the town of Harrison. They have three children: George, Archie and Florence. (8) Edward, born July 8, 1868, had a good education in the high school at Valparaiso, was for some eight or ten years a miner in Colorado, and now lives at Deadwood, S. Dak. (9) Henry, born at the present family home in September 1870, went to the Alaska gold fields in 1895, making three journeys to that region, and met with a rich reward for all his privations and perils. The young man returned in 1899, and is now a resident of his father's home. (10) Thomas, born in 1872, died when fifteen years of age. (11) Annie, born in July, 1875, is now the wife of George Woodrome, of Jefferson county, Ill., and the mother of one son, George H. (12) Archie, born in April, 1882 was a student in the Normal, preparing at Platteville for a teacher's career, and is now at home.

Mr. McClain was formerly a Whig, but later supported the Democratic party. In 1896 he voted the Republican ticket, and is now strongly in favor of territorial expansion. For forty-one years without a break he has held the office of school district treasurer in the town of Paris, and has never been requested to give bonds. Mr. McClain has also served on the town board. He started in life without a dollar, and by his own industry and thrift has come to be one of the most prosperous and extensive farmers and stock of the community are extended to him without measure, and his reputation for honesty and integrity is not questioned.10 At Platteville, Wisconsin, In the spring of 1843, there stepped off a steamboat at its landing at the village of old Paris situated on Big Platte river, about one mile above where the Dickeyville and Potosi road crosses that village, John McClain, and his widowed father, Mathew, who after the death of the latter's wife had emigrated to the mines of Wisconsin and to hunt up home relatives who had come here a few years before. They came from McMinnville, Tenn, about 15 miles south of Nashville and in the country in which I solderied in the civil war in 1864-5. John being then a boy of 16. After reaching the village they began making inquiries if any one there could tell them where one Spencer Palmer lived and were not long in finding a man that said he knew the Palmer family and if they would go with him he would show them where they lived. So getting their bundles they struck south over the hill from little Parris village and after an hour's walk arrived at another village called Dutch Hollow or settlement in those days, the Tennyson of today. Arriving, the man pointed out the Palmer residence, which is still standing today and after thanking their benefactor they soon were at the house, being received with open arms, so glad to see them, and get news from their old Tennessee home and friends sure had a royal welcome by their relatives. The McClains were not long in getting broke into the art of mining, especially John, who was ambitious as well as young and strong and he proved to be fortunate and was well paid for his labor. His uncle Palmer and a man named Freeborn had struck a good prospect for lead about one mile east of Rockville in what was called Pin Hook Hollow. In those days John bought the partner out being anxious to work with his uncle and it proved a good buy as it was quite a heavy producer and was known as the Butcher Shop range on account of the butcher being located where it crossed the ravine. There were seven or eight houses in Pin Hook Hollow at that time and a store kept by a man named Robinson. John had worked out his mine when the gold craze of '49 struck this country and it also struck John and a lot of his friends, hard enough that they emigrated there as soon as they could get ready. So leaving his father with his brother-in-law Palmer he pulled out for the gold fields of California where he was also fortunate in making some good strikes and after a few years returned to the settlement and his old father and the sweetheart he had left and whom he soon married. She was a Miss Rupp, a fine girl and came of one of the leading families of Tennyson. After his marriage, he with his young wife and old father settled on land he had bought in the town of Paris where they spent the remainder of their days clearing up a timber farm and raising their large family of eleven children. It was no soft job to clean up a farm in the heavy timber those days, but he could make and sell posts and cordwood to the prairie farmer and also sell cordwood to the man that run wood yards in Dubuque, they boating it down in summer and John hauling it on the ice in winter when the rivers got frozen good and solid, so was not long clearing up quite a farm. He also kept adding to his holdings and at his death owned about 400 acres of as good land as the country affords, which is situated two miles west of Cornelia and about 3 1/2 miles southeast of Tennyson. His youngest son Arch lives on the west part of the homestead while his daughter and her son and son-in-law occupy the eastern part. A few years before he died he had his son Arch with whom he lived after the death of his wife, hitch up to this buggy and start in at old Paris, where he first set foot on Wisconsin soil and drive over the route they took to get to their relatives and around through where he had been fortunate in the mining ventures. Eight of their eleven children are living, Archie and Mrs. Rupp on the old homestead, Mrs. David Wilson, Mrs. S. S. Van Natta, Henry who lives in Platteville, Anna, the youngest girl in Illinois, the two oldest boys John in the British northwest and Albert in the other extreme, Florida. His beloved wife and three sons, George, Charles and Edward and one grandson, and his old father sleep in the beautiful Cornelia cemetery where their children, neighbors and friends can stand by their graves and say here lie the bodies of an honest, upright and honorable couple, a kind friend and good neighbor. Peace be to their ashes. J. A. BLAKELY Platteville, Wis., April 12, 1933.11 John McClain Sr. migrated after 1830 at McMinnville, Warren, Tennessee to, Jefferson, Illinois, "Until 1830, the time of her [wife Mary's] death, when father and son journeyed westward to Jefferson County, Ill., where they found a home for some two year, and in June 1843, came into Wisconsin to work in the lead mines near Potosi."

He went to his house on the following Monday (02 Feb 1874), and his wife, hearing his approach, and fearing him, fled, abandoning her four children. Croal picked up the youngest child, dashed it upon the floor, kicked it, and stamped upon it, so that it was not expected to live more than a few moments when last heard from. Croal then went to the house of Patrick Kaney, his brother-in-law, whose life he had repeatedly threatened, and, finding Mr. and Mrs. Kaney absent, fired the barn, stacks of straw, and grain-bins, and escaped to the woods. Here, by a singular fatality, he found his nephew, James Kaney, chopping wood, and asked him to lend him his ax. The young man complied, and he instantly attacked him, cutting him in the abdomen and the muscle at the base of the brain. Thinking he had killed him, he covered the body with snow, and left, it is believed, for Richland county. At last advices a constable and several citizens were in pursuit. Young Kaney was still living.
