Copyright 2009. 0 They all deserve a written piece of history. My mother's (Gayle Knudson) family tree has drawn my curiosity. My grandma Annie Simmons retained numerous documents & personal items belonging to her parents. As family historian, my aunt (Connie Peterson) has retained the archives documenting my great grandfather Jacob Reinhardt's fascinating life. Jacob Rinehardt immigrated to the U.S. from Germany in1864. He was 18 & listed harness making as his occupation. Immediately, he sought employment. The Civil War was in progress & Minnesota's Fort Shelling offered volunteer union soldiers $50.00 upfront. He was inducted Feb. 25, 1864 to Company A; later called 5th Iowa Calvary. Fort Snelling served as a rendezvous & training center. Soldiers spent time marching, drilling with their weapons, & standing guard. The Fort became known for its picnics, parties, & parades. Great grandpa was honorably discharged May 1866 without one war story. Reinhardt realized early on the abundant opportunities his new homeland could provide. After a short stay in McCauleyville, MN, word of the 'Great Dakota Boom', he decided to see for himself. Along with Antoine Gerrard, they set out. Together, they explored Kelly's Point located in what is nowWalsh county. The pair returned to the transportation center McCauleyville. Jacob ran stagecoach for Carpenter & Blaike; carrying both passengers & mail until 1877. At that time, Antoine & Jacob returned to Kelly's Point: settling on the same land they had explored 10 years earlier. Gerrard was appointed Postmaster; Reinhardt his deputy. Shortly after, Reinhardt opened a store & Gerrard a tavern. On May 27, 1879, Kelly's Point was renamed Acton after Gerrard's hometown Acton, Ontario, Canada. The township thrived a grew to a population of 400+ in 1881. That same year, ND Governer Ordway appointed 3 commissioners to develop Walsh County. Walsh County was established from 2 northern tiers of GF County & 2 southern tiers of Pembina County. The county was named for George H. Walsh; a prominent newspaper & politicalfigure. InAugust, the commissioner's conducted a meeting to appoint Walsh County officials. Jacob Reinhardt was appointed Sheriff. At 5'6", he must have possessed other formidable characteristics. A new jail was built costing $275. I guess his position as County sheriff wasn't demanding enough. In 1883, he presided over Walsh county's 1st Masonic lodge meeting. The meeting came to order in the midst of a grain field a grain thrasher as a makeshift podium. The spectacle was captured on camera & remains on display at Crescent Masonic museum in Grafton. As Grandmaster, my great grandfather was closely connected to the Republican political party. He was chosen as delegate to the Republican convention in GF on election night; cheering on the election of William McKinley. The Republicans platform applauded women's rights, 'equal pay for equal work', & National Arbitration Board Welcome Nora Jolin Hokenson Miss Nora Jolin Hokenson (Jolin after both grandmothers), was born to Ryan and Kristy Hookenson, September 10th, 2013. Nora weighed in at 7 pounds 13 ounces and was 20 1/2 inches long. Nora has a big brother, Russ.
