1. Ursula Henrieta Mattecheck born 4 April 1904 in Mapleton, Minnesotta, died
on her wedding day, 1931
Their parent's room was downstairs. One time the family had made homemade
rootbeer. It was put out on the roof to age. The bottles were laying on
their sides. They somehow got loose and started to roll off. They made a
terrible racket and woke up everybody! The family went to the mountains in
the eastern part of Washington for a week. A spring broke in the car so Dad
worked most of the time fixing the car. Everyone but Father went to the
sulphur springs and a swimming pool with water from the springs. It was fun
to swim in the bouyant water.
2. Robert Walter Hibbert born 15 August 1935 in
1898 - The Spanish-American War, 15 February
1898, U.S.S. Maine was mysteriously blown up in Havana harbor.
2. Matthias Walter Mattecheck born 3 August 1876 in Watertown, Wisconsin, died 14 April 1955 in McMinneville, Oregon, buried in St. James Catholic Cemetery in McMinneville, Oregon, married 1 June 1903 in Minneapolis, Minnesota at St. Charles Catholic Church by Father McCarthy.
(The church has burned and Father McCarthy is dead) Matthias was often called "Matt". He graduated from high school and then went on to Law School at the University of Minnesota, where he graduated before he married. Matt moved his wife and children from Michigan, where he was in the banking business, to Kennewick, Washington. In Washington he had a hardware store where he worked during the day. At night he had a Reo Car dealership.
1904 - The Reo introduced by R.E. Olds has a
wheel instead of a tiller...
Then he dropped the car dealership and bought a theatre there in Kennewick. In 1926-27 Mother moved to Seattle to have better schools for the kids. Then Matt found a theatre in McMinneville, Oregon. That is when he started the Lark Theatre, just after Bob graduated. So when Harriet finished high school, they all moved to McMinnevville. Matthias Walter Mattecheck was a real good egg. But Mother always seemed to want to spoil everyone's plans. Once Matt wanted to go to a theatre convention and asked his wife to go with him. She said no assuming that he wouldn't go either but he did. Things were mighty cool when he got back home. Matt died of bone cancer.
3. Mary Henrietta Webb born 3 March 1879 in St. Paul, Minnesota, died 24 March 1954 in California, buried next to her husband at St. James Catholic Cemetery in McMinneville, Oregon. Mary's mother died when Mary was nine years old. Mary did not like her stepmother, Sarah. Mary was a teacher for several years. Mary Webb wrote a poetry book called "Autumn Leaves". Her pen name is May Webb Mattecheck. She chose "May" because her father called her "May-ree". On page 9 of her book is a poem about May-Ree. She had a running argument with the poet editor of the Oregonian newspaper.
2A.(Ursula 1) Henrietta Mattecheck born 4
April 1904 in Mapleton, Minnesota. Ursula was named after St. Ursula and
called "Urs" as a child. Among the things Dad sold at the hardward
store were Victorolas. So they got one and Sue played it very loudly on the
front porch so that everyone would know they had one! When they lived in
Kennewick and Sue went swimming at the Columbia River, she liked to ride on
the running board of the Reo. She wore a swim suit with a long sweater over
it. It looked as though she was naked!
Mother did not approve.
