Anna was born on 13 Jan 1830 in Westerwiehe, Westphalia and died on 20 Apr 1880 in Neuenkirchen, Nordrhein-Westfalen at age 50. They had nine children.

3-Rev. Francis Xavier Boeding was born on 5 Sep 1853 in Neuenkirchen and died on 9 Oct 1928 in St. Lucas at age 75. He was ordained in Montreal on 2 December 1877. He was the Pastor of  St. Luke's Catholic Church in St. Lucas, where he served for 46 years. The 1910 census shows his cousin, Franciska, age 21 living with him. He was buried at St. Lucas Cemetery.

  In early childhood Frank attended school near his home, but in 1865 entered a classical school in Ritberg, where he spent six years. The two years, 1871-3, he spent at Palderborn, followed by a course of two years at the University of Muenster. In 1875, Mr. Rev. Frank BOEDING
"The story of the work of Catholic priests in the opening settlement and upbuilding of the west has often been told. In fact, it is a main feature of the history of the period. To tell of "The Winning of the West," with the priests left out, would be like omitting the most vital chapters. They were especially conspicuous in missionary work, for which they have a natural aptitude and training. Give a priest a little shanty somewhere, with two or three members to listen to him, and in a few years that neighborhood reports a flourishing church, with a live membership, good school, necessary buildings to accommodate the workers and all the other adjuncts of a prosperous religious community. There will be Sunday school classes of course, and most likely a flourishing parochial school. In addition to all this, the priest, who is always a busy man, will find time to establish missions in other localities and do much mission work. This story, in brief, has been repeated in thousands of communities throughout the Northwest, where the priests and their congregations are always regarded as valuable additions to the life of the place. With this brief preface we will no proceed to give a few notes of the life and work of Rev. Frank BOEDING, the popular priest of St. Lucas in Fayette county. He was born in Neuenkirchen, province of Westphalia, Germany, September 4, 1853. His parents were Conrad and Mary (FREISE) BOEDING, also natives of Westphalia, and people of humble
BOEDING left his native land for the United States, where he completed his studies at various institutions in Milwaukee, Dubuque and Montreal. At the latter he was ordained a priest, December 22, 1877, and his first appointment was to the Catholic Church in Guttenberg, Clayton county, Iowa. This charge he left on the 22nd of September, 1882, for St. Lucas, with which place he has since been identified. His duties required him to attend the Catholic mission at Fort Atkinson and for fifteen years in similar work at Ciesco. There are now resident priests at both of these places. Following is a summary of Father BOEDING's work during his pastorate: In 1883 an addition was built to the church; in 1891 a new residence was erected; in 1894 two school rooms were added; in 1905 an addition of a chapel and of two school rooms and an addition to the boarding house were the much needed improvements. Over one hundred families left the parish for the west, but one hundred and thirty-four families still remain despite the heavy drain. The members consist of eight hundred and fifty-six souls, one hundred and thirty-three men, one hundred and forty-three women, three hundred and three boys and two hundred and seventy-seven girls. It will be seen that Father Boeding's life has been a busy one and that he has done much for the uplifting of the community, morally, socially and in every way that leads to good citizenship."

5-Joseph Martin Boeding was born on 5 Oct 1920 in Kelly, Kansas, died on 28 Mar 1945 in Honolulu at age 24, and was buried in Honolulu ABMC Memorial Cemetery. During his preschool years, the family moved to a farm west of  Corning, Kansas. He attended grade school at St. Patrick's School, Corning, and high school at Corning Rural High School. He graduated in 1940, rated fifth in his class. After graduation, he worked for two years in Colorado and Iowa.
On July 28, 1942 he enlisted in the U.S. Navy. He went to Topeka to enlist in the Marines. When he discovered there was no Marine Recruiting Station in Topeka, he promptly opted for the Navy.
He 'signed up' at 11:10 a.m., was examined by noon; to Kansas City by 2:30 p.m. and examined before 5:30 p.m.. The next day was spent at the Recruiting Station from 8 a.m. till 8
p.m. when he and twenty eight others boarded a train for Chicago and the Great Lakes Naval Training Station. They arrived there about noon the next day. Then another day of tests and X-rays, after which he moved into the camp for basic training. The training unit consisted of one hundred sixteen men, the twenty nine from Kansas, the rest were 'Easterners', "all friendly fellows".


In January, 1943, he transferred from Great Lakes Naval Training Station to Treasure Island, the naval base near San Francisco. Two post cards, mailed en route, to his parents are postmarked: Raton New Mexico, January 15, 1943 and Needles, California, January 16, 1943. Four letters followed. Three of them gave Treasure Island as the place of origin. The last letter from Treasure Island is dated February 4, 1943. He transferred to the U.S.S. Sperry, the "mother ship" of the U.S.S. Trigger. The next thirteen letters give the U.S.S. Sperry as the place of origin. The first
such letter is dated February 26, 1943, the last dated September 28, 1943.

During his Navy career, Joe maintained a high level of enthusiasm for all his assignments and duties. As early as August 9, 1942 he states: "I do love it" and in the same letter: "I think I can make
the navy a career". On January 23, 1943 he writes: "Do not worry about me. The U.S. fleet is the safest place in the world". The one exception occurred when he joined the U.S.S. Sperry where he was assigned as mess cook. His words: "I was so disappointed" tells it all.

Some time in early October 1943, Joe was assigned to the U.S.S. Trigger. After this his letters omit the place of origin. In the first such letter dated October 20, 1943, he simply states: "I like my new job". Then he adds: "Hope I get to go out soon - will be what I wanted for the last sixteen months".


The U.S.S. Trigger was the submarine which established such an awesome record against the Japanese. The Navy magazine 'SHIPMATE' (the eyes and ears of the Navy) in its June 1946 issue on page 20 says this of the U.S.S. Trigger:

"IN A GLASS CASE NEAR THE ENTRANCE TO THE NAVAL ACADEMY MUSEUM LIES
A WHITE SATIN BANNER WITH FORTY-FOUR JAPANESE FLAGS EMBROIDERED UPON IT. ON THE BANNER IS EMBROIDERED ALSO THE NAME 'USS TRIGGER' AND THE OUTLINE OF A SUBMARINE. THAT IS ALL THAT IS LEFT OF ONE OF THE
GREATEST FIGHTING SHIPS OF WORLD WAR II. HER SHATTERED HULK LIES
SOMEWHERE UNDER THE SEA, AND WITH HER ALL THAT WAS MORTAL OF
NINETY-FIVE BRAVE SOULS."

Joe's only comment about the Trigger was more subdued. On October 25, 1943 he wrote: "We have done a good job in this war. You will probably see a picture in the paper of our ship for her great work".


In his letters Joe referred freely to his religious experiences while in the service. On July 30, 1942 he says the Seneca and Baileyville churches combined could not have held the crowd at Mass.
And, he wants his rosary and prayerbook sent. On August 8, 1942 he says there were between five and six thousand at Mass on Sunday. On November 8, 1942 he writes: "I wish you could have heard the sermon we got yesterday. I do think we have a God-sent man for a chaplain".
On April 3, 1943 he writes from the U.S.S. Sperry: "We do not have a Catholic chaplain on our ship. Please don't worry about it. We are usually where we can go to church". We say the rosary here in a group and will offer mine for them". On October 28, 1943 he says that Mrs. Beck had sent him a Sacred Heart badge. "Sure is nice". On October 20, 1943 he explains: "We don't have a chaplain on board but there is one on the base. Sure am glad. There wasn't one for a long time". On December 22, 1943 he says he expects to go to midnight Mass on Christmas.

Joe also speculated about other things. On November 16, 1943 he writes: "I suppose you sometimes wonder where I am. I am fine. Hope you never worry for I don't. And I don't see why any one should shoulder my troubles". On July 23, 1943: "Time passes fast. The Fourth was just another day except we touched it up with a real feed". On August 1, 1943: "Skell sure looks cocky. I don't blame him. Any one should be proud of his uniform. - I think we will get to the States in another year. That will be a happy day. Believe it or not, in the last two months I have had just four beers, not reasonable but true". On August 4, 1943 he wishes he could help them pick the big corn crop. "Sure would like to see a weed again, that would really be nice. Or just a sunflower".

He seems to feel the dare-devils of the Air Force were too reckless. In this connection he comes up with this gem on September 27, 1943: "If a turkey sticks his neck out too far, he will get it chopped
off". (This from a Torpedo-man 3rd class itching to get his turn at the trigger). On September 28, 1943 he asks: "Is Skell still in N.C.? He will never realize what the states are until he leaves
them". On December 19, 1943 he becomes nostalgic about the Christmas dinner at home, then adds: "Maybe it won't be too long and we can come home, every one". Three days later: "Don't overstuff yourself at Christmas dinner. I know I will". On December 14, 1944: "Maybe someday I will be back there. Sure am anxious for that day. I did not realize things were quite so nice back there till I came back the last time. It is everything people say it is. God's country. A place to dream about". Then he adds: "Maybe some time soon we will all be there".


A large part of Joe's letters are given over to the family, his parents, brothers and sisters. His most endearing remarks are addressed to his mother. On November 2, 1942 he writes: "It was awful to hear you were in the hospital. If you would quit working so hard you would be better off". The letter on April 13, 1943 includes this: "Mother, of all the letters I get there ain't any like yours. Just to think from whom it comes". On October 28, 1943 he is "glad to know you will not need another operation". Then comes this gem on December 22, 1943: "Mother, don't worry about me ever getting married. I just don't have time for that. But as for advice, you can send me all the advice you wish. I know I need it. I will never be so old that I can't use it". Then on January 21, 1944 came this:
"Received your swell letter. Mother, I some times wonder if you aren't a little too charitable. You are always helping out. What will people do around there when you are gone? Everyone knows you
are a grand person. Yes, the swellest mother anyone could wish to have". On February 22, 1944 he says: "Mother, surprised to hear you were not up to Ed's. I think you should have gone. I guess you will never change. You never did like to travel". In the same letter: "So you're getting a pair of glasses. Good, mother; if you ever get in a spot, draw the money I have and use it. It's alright with me. After all, I will never be able to repay you and dad for all you have done for me". On August 14, 1944: "Received your swell letter this morning. Sounds as if you must have been feeling pretty good to get  up before breakfast to write to me. Sure do appreciate it. Would love to be there and eat some of those scrambled eggs over toast and bacon, with you. Bet they're delicious". His last direct remark to his mother is on September 24, 1944. Here he becomes a boy again. "O gosh mom, you ought to see my head. I got it shaved".


From Joe's letters I get the impression that most of the letters from home to Joe were written by his mother. As a result, his father is not mentioned nearly as often. There are several "Thank you's" to
his father for things his father had sent him. On July 15, 1944 he is concerned that his dad is working too hard. His comment: "After all you are not a spring chicken any more".

The letters are replete with references to his brothers and sisters. For the older ones, away from home, he is constantly grateful for their letters and packages. At first he urges Skell and Ollie to join the Navy. After that he is concerned about their welfare in the Army; and their whereabouts.

In the early letters, Joe feels the younger ones "at home" should share in the letter writing from home. On September 10, 1943, he shows impatience with Lambert, when he says to his mother: "I do not
think Lambert ever wrote a letter in his life".

Nevertheless, there are more references to Lambert than to any of
the others. He is much concerned that Lambert is now alone at home
to do the farm work: that Lambert is really needed on the farm more
than in the armed forces; but, if drafted, he should opt for the
Navy. Several times he wishes he could be with Lambert to help him
with the work. On August 1, 1943 he writes about Lambert: "I wish he
were here to help me fish. Just think of how a little boat like
those at Lake Nemaha would get tossed up on a roll twenty feet high;
and when you came down, everything else in you came up".


While at Great Lakes Naval Training Station, Joe made several Sunday visits to the home of a family named Beck. Joe mentions this on December 21, 1942. "They treat me swell, like their own son." After
Joe left Great Lakes, the Beck's wrote to him regularly. Joe's reaction on September 23, 1943 was: 'I don't know what is so good about me, that they like me so."

When Joe's parents decided to leave the farm and move to town, several letters show that he was quite excited about the sale of the farm equipment. Joe's last letter is dated December 22, 1944. He
continues to express his interest in the sale. "How was the big day? I mean the sale."

Late in March or early April 1945, the submarine Trigger was lost at sea, along with the entire crew. The last communication from the Trigger was a weather report on March 26. Search operations were
carried out during all of April. On May 1, 1945 she was reported as presumed lost in enemy waters west of Honshu Island, Japan. She had been on her twelfth patrol.

The telegram announcing that Joe was missing in action at sea came on Mother's Day, May 14, 1945.

A Memorial Mass was said for Joe on June 27, 1946 at St. Patrick's Church, Corning; followed by the civic ceremony in front of the church. I remember that I came from Fort Riley to attend this.
During this visit I heard his mother tell that during his last visit home Joe had asked for his favorite chicken soup. She lamented that she had not taken greater care in preparing it.

Seneca Courier -Tribune.....September 10, 1937
The funeral service for F.X. Boeding, who passed away Wednesday night at St. Margaret hospital, Kansas City, following a gallstone operation and complications, was held Saturday at 9:00 o'clock in Sts. Peter and Paul church, Seneca. The solemn Requiem high mass was offered by a brother, Rev. Father Arnold Boeding of Groom, Texas. Rev. Father John Herbers, Dyersville, a brother of Mrs. Frank Boeding was deacon: Father Claude, O.S.B., sub-deacon: Rev. Father Paul, O.S.B., Kelly master of ceremonies. Rt. Rev. Msgr. Arnold Boeding, Dubuque, Iowa, an uncle of the deceased: Rev. Father Damian, O.S.B., his pastor; Father W.J. Lobeck of Corning were also in the sanctuary. Interment was at the Sts. Peter and Paul cemetery. The pallbearers were Joe Strathman, Victor Huerter, M.B. Kerns, Henry Nordhus, John Koehler, Joe Brinker, with honorary pallbearers as follows: Henry Haverkamp, Henry Wichman, Arnold Ronnebaum, John Waller, Joe Christman and Wm. Tanking.
Seneca business houses closed by proclamation of Mayor Jack R. Houston. Scoutmaster Bob Roberts and members of Troop 145, of which Raymond and Kenneth Boeding are members, the Knights of Columbus and St. Joseph's society formed the escort of honor. Three nephews, Fredolin, Edgar and Paul Boeding and Donald Koehler were servers.
Many people in the Seneca community were saddened as the news of Mr. Boeding's death spread last Thursday. Frank had many friends. He was a quiet sort of man, tended strictly to his own business, yet enjoyed fellowship and looked upon life with a good-natured attitude. Though his death was untimely, he had achieved considerable of worthwhile things. There are no riches which would compare with the good wife, the five boys and two girls of the Boeding family circle. Frank Boeding placed his home as one of the high things in life. One could not drive past the well-kept premises in northeast Seneca without realizing it.
He found expression of his faith in the Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church and was also a member of the St. Joseph's society and Council No. 1769, Knights of Columbus.

LEO LEE BOEDING Left a legacy of having a heart for others.....
Who: Leo "Lee" Boeding, 58, of Merriam, a Vietnam veteran who worked as a pipe fitter and welder.
When and how he died: Oct. 15, from organ failure.
A volunteer: Growing up in Manchester, Iowa, Boeding was the 11th of 12 siblings. He loved the outdoors, whether it was hunting, fishing or camping. His parents were farmers, and to help out, young Lee hunted pheasant for family meals.
Boeding was a U.S. Navy Seabee during the Vietnam War, building bridges and other structures. After his initial tour of duty, he volunteered to serve another.
"He felt sorry for people, and he thought he would replace some other guy that had kids," said his sister, Ginny Wise.
The silent type: He didn't talk much about his service during the war or other things he did. (One of the few stories he did share was about coming home from Vietnam and being spit on as he walked through the airport.) Boeding had a gift for breaking horses. For a while after he came home from Vietnam, he broke horses as a sideline. He liked the challenge of working with them, but it left him with long-term back problems.
Boeding's son Joe didn't know his father helped with the recovery efforts after the Hyatt Regency hotel collapse in 1981. One of Joe's aunts told him after Lee had died.
"He was a crane operator, and he was the one that just helped pull people out," Joe Boeding said.
The last few years of his life were hard for her brother, Ginny said. His wife, Edith, had passed away in 1994 from cancer, and Boeding, who helped care for her during her illness, suffered serious depression after she died.

BOEDING FAMILY by Mary Boeding Beer

The Boeding family immigrated from southeastern Iowa to the Ipswich-Leola area in 1905. Not having much success in farming there, my father and his two sisters decided to go west and homesteaded in the Glad Valley area, in Ziebach County, in 1911. My Dad filed on land 2 1/2 miles northeast of Glad Valley and made his living hauling lumber, building homes, and breaking the required acres for his neighbors, as he brought with him 3 horses, plow, wagon, etc. They lived for many years in a small one room house, sodded up on the outside, and always mined their own coal in the surrounding country. In the summer time we often burned cow chips we picked up on the prairie.
There were thirteen of us children. We all received our 8 years of schooling in the Glad Valley School (Pickerville School in the early days). In the dirty thirties most of the family moved back to Iowa. George, John and myself still live in South Dakota. Herman, Genevieve and Leonard are deceased. Mother passed away in 1959 and Dad in 1963.
