Currently, I'm transcribing these notes for inclusion in a book, the fourth in a series of books all bearing the subtitle, A Krentz & Buss Family Album. I completed the first two, Portraits and Gatherings, earlier this year, and the third, Snapshots, is about two-thirds done. News, like the others, will be between 150-200 pages.
Apparently I did not take many notes from the 1925 & 1926 WCD, and none at all from 1927 & 1928. I think I just saw a note somewhere that said I ran out of time with the microfilm, but as I write this, I can't even find that note! I am nothing if not organizationally challenged, both when I did this note-taking project and now, still. So, in the interest of not getting bogged down in obsessing over what wasn't done, we're just gonna go with what was done.
Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Robey moved to town Saturday. They will reside with the latter's mother, Mrs. August Krinning.
6 March 1925:
Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Erwin and Mrs. Elizabeth Erwin moved into Mrs. Buss' property Saturday.
[William and Mamie Brandt finally got their divorce.]

HENRY BRANDT PASSES AWAY
Funeral Services For Well Known Man To Be Held Saturday AfternoonHenry Brandt, a well known resident of the county, passed away Thursday at his home two and a half miles northeast of Monticello after a long illness. The deceased was born in German April 20, 1851, and had lived in White county a good many years where he was highly esteemed.
Funeral services were held at the home Saturday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock with the Rev. Keiss of Reynolds in charge. Burial was made in Riverview cemetery.
Ed. note: Most of the notes above are quoted as printed in The White County Democrat, a weekly which was published on Fridays. On rare occasions I make small corrections in the interest of readability. On even rarer occasions, I have been known to make typographical errors, but rest assured, most of the errors appearing in this series are vintage! Notes which appear in brackets have been extracted and summarized in my own words from longer articles and are not direct quotes.
