    THE PLETSCHETTE FAMILY OF NEUNHAUSEN        first version: June 24, 2000
    ====================================         last updated:  May 16, 2004
    1. Pletschette, John. *1644 - +1712
       oo Meyers, Cath. *?? - +1725
    2. Pletschette, Paul *?? - +1734
       oo Mertz, Marg. *?? - +1740
    3. Pletschette, Jak. *?? - +1750
       oo Mack, Marg. *?? - +1761
    4. Pletschette, Joh. *?? - +1755
       oo Rausch, Maria *?? - +1732
    5. Pletschette, Joh. *?? - +1769
       oo Wilwerding, Mari *?? - +1770
    Note: According to J-F Languy, there is something wrong with the 
    relationships on the above Ancestors, as there are only 114 years 
    to spread between 6-generations. Perhaps #3 & #4 above were brothers, 
    as they died within 5-years of each other.
    A. Pletschette, John. *1644 & Johannes, Pletschet +1783 = 139 years,
    Divided by 6 generations = 23+ years each.  Technically, it is 
    possible this could be correct. - C. Arnold
    6. Pletschet, Johannes *?? - +1783 
       oo Adamy, Anna *?? - +1770
       They lived in Neunhausen, in Wiltz Canton, in the 
       Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. We believe Johannes was appointed 
       "Burgermeister" (mayor) of Neunhausen in 1778. 
       *Note:  According to Marie Heusbourg-Thilmany's translations,
               Joannes Pletschet witnessed, for the Count of Esch-Saur,
               the signing of the 9FEB1778 document, appointing his
               son, J. Pierre Pletschet, mayor of Neunhausen. This would
               have made J. Pierre only 20 years old.   
       This was during the time Luxembourg was governed by Austria. 
       It is said 
       he owned the village, and all the people living in Neunhausen worked 
       for Johannes.  In turn he governed the people.  (Please note, on 
       the Family Tree or "Stammbaum" as given to me by Margot Kohl, his 
       name was spelled Joannes Pletschet with only one "t" at the end, 
       as were 
       all his decendents.  However, on the Pletschette Family Gravestone, 
       name is engraved as "Jak. Pletschette".  It is unknown how many 
       children they had.  However, as was the custom of his time, he 
       passed on his title and property to his oldest son:
       7. Pletschet, J. Pierre *1758 - +24AUG1818 
          oo Asselborn, Maria *?? - +1813 
    	Jean-Pierre was mayor of Neunhausen and signed with
    	"J.P. Pletschet, maeyer". 
          *Note: According to Maria Heusbourg-Thilmany, her records indicate
                 J. Pierre's son, Bernard, signed his death certificate even
                 though his mother, Maria Asselborn was still living.  
                 Therefore, her death date is incorrect.
                 Also, her records indicate J. Pierre & Maria had only three
                 children; Anna-Catherine *1792, Marie-Catherine *1793, and
                 Bernard *1794.
          It is unknown exactly how many children they had besides 
          Bernard *1785/86, Therese Pletscher *1794, Maria-Catharina *1796,
          Anna-Catharina (known as Anne Marie) *1801, and another Bernard 
          *1803, but again the title and property were passed on to their 
          oldest son:
    	8. Pletschet, Bernard *1AUG1785/1786?? - +8FEB1853 
             oo Kellen, Catharina (or Catherine Koellen) *?? - +1861
    	   Bernard was also mayor of Neunhausen and signed with
             "Bernard Pletschet, bourgmestre".
             (Notes indicate he may have inherited his title and property 
             in 1823?)  As far as we know, all of the following nine  
             children were born in Neunhausen:
         *Footnote:  Napolean defeated at Waterloo, Belgium, but visits
          Luxembourg in 1804.  In 1814 the French leave Luxembourg.
             9. Pletschet, Jean-Pierre *22JUN1814 - +29AUG1887 
                oo Loring, Anne-Catherine * 6DEC1824 - +1893 daughter of 
                Nicolas & Catherine Loring of Orsdorf)  Jean-Pierre was the 
                oldenst of Bernard & Catharina's, and thus inherited the   
                title and property of Nuenhausen. Together they had the
                following six children.  It is said Jean-Pierre only 
                registered the new born boys, the girls were registered by 
                relatives.  (Was this chauvinism?)
                10. Pletschet, Bernard Dieudonne Alexandre *4FEB1844 
                    Note: "Dieudonne" means "Gift of God".
                    Bernard was not married, and had no children to 
                    pass the title and property on to (neither did his 
                    brothers and sisters).  When he died the land was 
                    sold.  It is said the relatives who emigrated to 
                    America divided the money, while those who still 
                    lived in Luxembourg, divided the possessions.  
                    This was the end of the Pletschet family 
                    from Neunhausen.
                10. Pletschet, Sophie *19SEP1849 - +15JUN1913
                    Her name is engraved on the Pletschette Family
                    Gravestone.  She remained single and lived with her
                10. Pletschet, Auguste *15MAY1857 - +??
                    He became a Roman Catholic Priest, and later Director 
                    of the Agriculture School in Effelbruick.
                10. Pletschet, Anna-Maria-Mathilde *2MAY1859 - +27NOV1912
                    Her name is engraved on the Pletschette Family 
                    Gravestone as Mathil. Pletschette.  She remained 
                    single and lived with her brother in Neunhausen.
                10. Pletschet, Sophie-Emilie *12JAN1861 - +??
                    She also stayed with her brother in Neunhausen.
                10. Pletschet, Francois-Denis *16FEB1864 - +24DEC1936

                    He was a Professor and later Director of the
                    Lycee Classique in Diekirch.
                    Note:  There is a picture of him at:  
             9.	Pletschet, Pierre *4SEP1816 - +?? 
                oo Fourman, Anne Marie *21NOV1814 in Erpelding +??
                   oo 21FEB1836 in Eschweiler. They lived in Eschweiler.
                   Pierre was mayor of Eschweiler in 1849 for the first
                   time, and re-elected in 1861.

                (This Wilhelm may have been the GG-Grandfataher of Felix!)
             9. Pletschet, Anna Marie *8MAR1823 - +??
             9. Pletschet, Marie *30AUG1825 - +21MAR1865 (in Kaundorf)  
                She lived with younger brother, Jean Bernard in Kaundorf.

                My Great-Grandfather  
                oo Wilmes, Anna Margaretha *1834 - +18APR1888 of Boeven
                *Note:  According to Maria Heusbourg-Thilmany, Margaretha's
                        parents most likely had no son, so their son-in-law
                        continued the Wilmes farm.
                It is said, that because Nicolas was not the oldest son, 
                and did not inherit the title and the property, he was 
                given ONE COW.  It is a standing joke in the family, to 
                hold up your thumb and say, "What can you do with ONE cow?"    
                So Nicolas & Margaretha took their one cow to Boeven, and
                together they had 12 children:
               10. Pletschet, Catherine (Katherina) *8NOV1853 - +?? 
                   oo Majerus, Nicolas *?? - +??
                   Together they lived in Rambrouch, Luxembourg.  
                   Catherine & Nicolas were grand-parents to 
                   Nicolas Collingnon.
               10. Pletschet, Sophie *18MAR1855 +07MAR1866

                      married two Agnes brothers!  Together they lived in 
                      Hostert, Luxembourg and had six children:

                      board the Steamer Pennland.)  Note sure if Peter 
                      & Anna were married prior to Emigrating or not.  
                      It is said they emigrated to Spring Brook, Iowa, 
                      and later they lived in Brooten, Minnesota. It is 
                      unknown how many children they had besides Mary

    Joe Pletchett, 90
    Thief River Falls - Joe Pletchett, 90, died Tuesday, September 28, 1999
    at Oakland Park Nursing Home in Thief River Falls.  Mass of Christian 
    burial was held at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, October 2 at St. 
    Bernard's Catholic Church in Thief River Falls with Rev. Dennis 
    Wieland officiating. Carol Amundson was the organist, and the 
    cantor was Marie Nowacki. Casketbearers were Virgil Burger, 
    Jim Fisher, John Schmitz, Millard Nelson, Willard Fleegel and 
    Pat Klemisch. Burial was in St. Charles Catholic Cemetery in 
    Trail. The Green Funeral Home of Thief River Falls was in charge 
    of the arrangements.
    Joseph John Pletchett was born on September 18, 1909 in Trail, the 
    son of John and Mary (Majerus) Pletchett. He was baptized in the 
    Catholic faith and attended elementary school and two years of 
    high school in Plummer before quitting school to help on the 
    family farm.
    In addition to farming the family farm, Joe also worked on the 
    railroad. He resided at Valley Home in Thief River Falls from 1979 
    until January of 1992 when he moved to the CNC unit of Northwest 
    Medical Center. Since November of 1993, he had resided at Oakland 
    Park Nursing Home.
    He is survived by nine cousins, including Clara, Al, C.W., Roman, 
    Virgil, and Richard Radniecki, all of Oklee, Sybil Radnieki of 
    Brainerd, Weldon Stetter of Chicago, IL and Catherine Jorgenson 
    of Thief River Falls.  Joe was preceded in death by his parents

                    name "Pletschette".  When his wife passed away in 1945,
                    the dropped the 'e' on the end as evidenced by Elizabeth's
                    funeral card. I assume at this time, all of his

                     passed away 14 years prior to their marriage, 
                     on 3JUN1840.
                     They took the farm of Michel Malget in Kaundorf.  
                     Together they had 11 children of which only five 
                     lived to adulthood.

                      oo 21JAN1890  (Marie-Therese was a sister to wife of 
                      Wilhelm Pletschet; so, two Pletschet brothers married 
                      two Kerschen sisters.)  She was the daughter of
                      Corneil Kerschen +26NOV1880 and Marie-Josephine Toussaint.
                      On the young couple's wedding document, Marie-Josphine
                      Signed, but her husband had passed away 10-years earlier. 
                   They lived and farmed in Kaundorf until 1902, when they moved
                   to Soller.  It seems Marie-Therese's brother was single, and when
                   he died, his farm was empty.  As Uncle Wilhem told Maria 
                   Heusbourg-Thilmany, the fields and also the house and barns
                   In Soller were better and had more facilities.  Therefore the 
                   Pletschet Family left Kaundorf and moved to Soller in early
                   Spring 1902.  Bernard was then 11, Jean-Pierre 10, Willy 8,
                   And Marie-Anne was 5.  At that time their uncle from
                   Neunhausen, Auguste Pletschet, was a Priest in Doncols.  As
                   Doncols & Soller were a parish, the Pletschet children got 
                   Their religious instruction by their uncle.  Wilhelm-Michel
                   And Marie-Therese sold their house in Kaundorf, but the fields
                   Were kept.  With the help of relatives from Kaundorf they
                   Farmed both places.  Together they had four children:
