    Following the theme of “Commencement,” I wrote about my Vonder Halben cousins who were teachers in Cincinnati.  Eleanor and Matilda even graduated from the University of Cincinnati in 1913 and 1915, respectively.

  2. Wendy Negley

    I wrote ab out my Grandmother’s sister, Edna Hudson. She was the first woman in the family to earn a Master’s Degree, and she did at the University of California at Berkeley when she was from Fort Worth , Texas!

    Susan KASER KERR (1849-after 1910) and Elsie KERR FRITZ (1883-1962)

    This Susan is the oldest sister of my father’s father, and her daughter Elsie is one of the rare Kaser cousins who stayed in touch with my father and his brother. I almost knew her! (Although this was published at the appropriate time, I was on a road trip, and it was difficult to post a comment here.)
