Uniontown Names

Today, we will try something new.  Around here we sometimes refer to some names as being “Frohna names”, some as “Farrar names”, etc.  We ran across the confirmation which took place at Grace Lutheran Church in Uniontown, Missouri on May 6, 1883.  Many of these names are ones that we call “Uniontown names”.

We were fascinated by the name Josephine Tennessee Telle and found a photo of her.  She married the brother of one of her confirmation classmates, Heinrich Carl Schaefer.  He was the older brother of Joseph Benjamin.

If we had the time,  we are sure that we could come up with a story behind most of these names.  Maybe you can tell us a story too.
