"BIOGRAPHY: Historical Facts and Sketches in the Life of Conrad Biesecker and His Family (by Mary Biesecker Stone, as transcribed by Alice Spencer)


BIOGRAPHY: This couple of German descent, were born in Pennsylvania. They were the parents of sixteen children.


BIOGRAPHY: Conrad Biesecker lived on a farm near Taylor, Lackawanna County, Pennsylvania, rented from a coal company. Their children were all born there and lived to maturity. The sons and daughters later married and went to homes of their own, except Catherine, who, when quite young was injured by a fall which caused her death.


BIOGRAPHY: Conrad Biesecker was a strong, well built man, but of medium weight. Margaret, his wife, was over 200 ponds, strong and over average in size. Conrad Biesecker was a weaver by trade, and besides working his farm he wove carpets, coverlets, blankets and other things. When it was time to reap the grain, men came in with cradles and cut it. Conrad's wife followed and skillfully mad the cut grain into sheaves. At about 11 AM she would leave the field and return to the house to finish the previously arranged dinner and at noon all partook heartily of a well prepared and appetizing meal. At one o'clock the reaper and the binder went back to the field and worked until about six o'clock. In those days, this family lived on good, plain but wholesome food and had well developed, strong bodies. Mush made from cornmeal was often served for their supper, and the younger children were supplied with bowls or basins from which they ate their mush. When they did not have milk a large dish containing mush for the family was placed on the table and bacon which had been fried was cut into small pieces until much of the fat had been extracted, was poured over the mush, which made it very appetizing. This large family were never at any time all together.


BIOGRAPHY: Before some of the younger ones were born, some of the older boys had gone to what was called "the farm West". These journeys had to be taken in wagons, either drawn by oxen or horses, and travelling a thousand miles or more in that fashion was no pleasure trip, as there were then no steam cars, busses or airoplanes, which make the world seem so much smaller now that then.


BIOGRAPHY: When the children of this family had all grown and gone to homes of their own, and the parents had passed the meridian of their lives, Conrad Biesecker, left the rented farm and bought a property in Moscow, thich was a fine plot of ground with a fine commodious house and they lived there until their deaths. This house was a Mecca for the children and grandchildren who lived near enough to visit them and they always found a hearty welcome and a never-to-be-forgotten good time together."
