Ruth Kesselring Barriage
The Kesselring family came from Germany Pennsylvania then to Frederick County, Maryland in 1700's. Charles P. Kesselring, the seventh of ten children of Peter and Elizabeth (Marker) Kesselring, came to Illinois in the 1880's marrying Anna Sigler, daughter of Abraham Elizabeth (Harrison) Sigler, in 1891 at Oregon, Illinois Charles and Anna settled in Kings, Illinois having five children; Elmer. Mary, William, Paul and Ruth. Mary died in infancy. Anna died of consumption in 1902. Elmer, William and Paul stayed with the father till their teenage years. They were then hired out to local farmers for room and board. Elmer moved to Harvard, Illinois. William moved to Minnesota married Esther Berndt and had three children. Paul stayed in the Woosung area, marrying Dottie Cross and had two children Charles and Richard. Many descendants now live in Lee County. Ruth was only 21/2 years old and Charles couldn't take care of her, so the local Doctor in Oregon found a suitable home that would adopt Ruth. John and Josephine (Faessler) Lyons formally adopted Ruth Mae Kesselring and changed her middle name to Josephine. Charles came to visit his daughter often and remarried to Mrs. Zimmerman. Charles died in 1918
About 1910, Ruth contracted a mild form of tuberculosis and had to have rest. She was sent to Sinsinawa, Wisconsin to a convent boarding school. It was there where she got stronger and through whistling strengthened her lungs. She did bird whistling in amateur vaudeville on weekends. Ruth returned to Oregon within a few years. During the years in Oregon, her father, Charles Kesselring on visits would bring one or more of her brothers, so that they would know each other. Ruth learned sewing, cooking and farm life through the Lyons and Kesselring families, both having ties to farming families.
Ruth married Chester Barriage in 1920. They lived in Janesville afterwards. She tells the story of the best man going on the honeymoon and having to sleep in the hall of the hotel Chester had an Indian motorcycle with a sidecar. Ruth would climb in and ride through the muddy highways of the time. She told me that later on they had a car that had an awning and they would stop for the night along side of the road. They would fix the meals, sometimes using the hot water from the engine to pluck feathers of a chicken, then straining the water to put back into the radiator.
In March of 1921, Rogene was born in Janesville, Wisconsin. Ruth's father, John C. Lyons had a stroke in late 1920, after moving to Dixon, Illinois. He told his son-in-iaw, Chester, that he would give him down payment on a business in Dixon if he would bring his family from Janesville to Dixon. Chester came to Dixon and started a Battery Store on First Street. John Lyons died in June of 1921. (See Chester Barriage Biography)
The Barriages had a house in Dixon and in 1954 bought a house in Tampa, Florida also. They spent the winter months in Tampa and came to Illinois during the summer. Chester died in 1965 and Ruth after some crippling arthritis moved in with Rogene and John Boward on Depot Ave in the mid 1970's. Ruth saw her last birthday in Maplecrest Manor Nursing Home in Amboy. She died 10 Jun 1987 and was buried in Oakwood Cemetery in Dixon.

Was accidentally shot by cousin Bert Wakenight leaving a scar on his left middle area, but survived without complications-- Mt. Morris Times 10-31-1900

On Sunday afternoon, Sylvester Wakenight was the victim of an accidental shot from a revolver in the hands of his cousin, Bert Wakenight. The two young men had gone to Pine Creek with a 32 caliber revolver, in order to test their skill at shooting at a mark. They selected a favorite place near the old sawmill and put up a target at which they discharged four bullets. The fifth cartridge snapped, and Sylvester went to the target for the purpose of seeing how near the leaded messenger had come to the bulls' eye. His cousin stood and pulled the trigger on the refractory bullet when all at once it went off and entered the left side of Sylvester, who had his back toward the shooter.
The bullet entered his left side form the back, and continued its course accidental it deflected by a rib. As soon as Bert seen what injury he had inflicted upon his cousin he rushed to his assistance.
Sylvester was able to walk to the home of his Uncle, Samuel Wakenight, about half a mile distant, and from there he was removed to his home at this place. Dr. McCosh was summoned and probed for the bullet, but was not able to locate it. Although the injury is in a visable part of the body, it is not thought that any serious results will follow.
