St.Henry's Catholic Church #3, the East Facade, Ridge & Devon, Chicago, IL. Completed,1905.
St.Henry's Catholic Church #3, the East Facade, Ridge & Devon, Chicago, IL. Completed,1905.
Church # 1 was a single-room single-story wooden building built in 1851 by the Prussian Heritage German speaking Catholic Community. An examination of gravestone names confirms this Prussian Heritage. This Church served the growing Catholic Community for 20 years.
Prior to this Church, Catholic Mass and services were celebrated by Fr. Fortmann, a traveling missionary priest, in the 2-story wooden frame home of Peter Schmidt Smith(Jr) at 6816 Ridge Trail, (a sandy Indian Trail leading to Green Bay Trail that went to Milwaukee). This house was about 1 mile North of the Church's location.

Church # 2, a steepled wood Gothic style, was built in 1871, at a cost of $10,000 and utilized until Church #3 was completed in 1905. It served for 34 years.
The Cemetery adjacent to Church #3 was established in 1863. Many of the early German residents rest here. A plot cost $6.00 then. Today the Church charges $1300 for decendents to open a grave on a 144 year old family site if one can overcome the bureaucratic hurdles and legalisns of today's Church.
Burials prior to 1863 were either "on the farm" or in the City Cemetery that is now Lincoln Park. That City cemetery was closed and almost all residents were reinterred to Calvary Cemetery (Catholic) or Rosehill Cemetery if Protestant. It is also apparent that the recording of Children's Burials was not rigorously applied. The accuracy of Children's burials appears to have improved about 1960. Records prior to 1960 and earlier omit many children's burial records since they were probably performed by undertakers without a concern for Cemetery records.

The recording of Adult Burial dates appears accurate since 1863 and correlation with Census data after about 1880 improves.

Current Catholic burial records were moved in 2004 from St Boniface Cemetery to Calvary Cemetery in Evanston, IL.

The original "Books of Record" for funerals, (the accuracy responsibility beng that of Pastors until about 1930), has since been taken over by Archdiocosean Personnel. These original records were of course in German until about 1920 and then a "translation" transpired in the '30's and of course the error factor immediately grew. Finding and obtaining access to a "Book of Original Record" can be a daunting task. The whereabouts of these original records of St. Henry's is at this time an open question.

In about 1928 Cardinal Mundeline gave Church #3 to the Angel Guardian Orphanage. This infuriated the Congregation. The Pastor, Fr. Rittersoph, asked for and received reassignment, stating he could "no longer hold up my head" to his parishoners in light of this heavy handed action.

The parishoners had just finished paying off the mortgage the previous year.

The parishoners were given a small piece of land a block west on Hoyne Ave to construct the current two story fortress style Church. The second floor was the grammar school.

This Church #4, a small stone block building, served as St Henry's Church from 1928 to today. It's parishoners grew but peaked in 1952.

With middle-class flight to the suburbs beginning in the 60's; the parish stagnated in the 80's; declined in the 90's and is currently utilized by a small Catholic Vietnamese Congregation and Pastor. It's school is closed.

The fruits of "multiculturism" in Rogers Park have decimated a once vibrant Catholic Church. A sad ending to a great beginning.

PUBLIUS CAELIUS, (brother of Marcus,) Son of Titus, erected (this monument.) ............born in June 43 BC this Centurion would have known Julius Caesar.
Officers of the Legions in this battle were either killed in battle or, if captured alive, crucified after being tortured and burned or buried alive. The 3 historians of the time writing of this event record no Officers surviving and while none of the 3 writers was at the battle, the descriptions of one writer clearly indicate he had talked with surviving soldiers.
This is the most impressive archeological find of this War. It was also a pivotal battle in Europe's history since if the Roman army had conquered northern Germany and moved across the Rhine you would probably not be speaking English today but a form of Roman Latin.

The GrossFortman Farm, 1100 Meters NW of the KleineFortmann Farm
Seperated in 1200-1400 by a stream from a spring. 
The stream in visible under the line of trees seperating the farms.
The original Furt Mann starting the Fortmann Farm most probably resided here from 1100 to 1200. The village of Loan (Lohne) is first recorded in 890 AD. Prior to 314 AD, the year Roman Emperor Constantine, in Trier, Germany, 120 miles SW of here, declared Christianity the religion of the Empire, Kleine Fortmann Ancestors in the Lohne area belonged to the Germanic Tribe known by the Romans as Cheruscians.  They were known for their independence and had destroyed the 17th, 18, and 19th Roman Legion (20,000)men, women and children between 12 and 15 Sep, 9 CE.  Christian missionaries converted them around 400-500 AD. And they remained Catholic throughout the Reformation, 1550, initiated by Martin Luther. Again, Independence.

U-Boat Type IX
U-Boat Type IX
This is a profile of one of the German U-Boats captured by Soviet troops and used for intelligence purposes in the North Atlantic by Russia. It could range 12,750 Km and attain 6.9 knots underwater and 20.8 Km surfaced. 4.1 miles/hr under water and 12.5 miles/hr surfaced. With a minimum 6 hr window a U-IX could have covered 75 miles to a ditching easily.

U-Boat, Type IX Surfacing...Sea & Sky conditions of 23 Mar 1951
U-Boat, Type IX Surfacing...Sea & Sky conditions of 23 Mar 1951
At the end of WWII Russia captured German U-Boats and employed them for intelligence gathering in the North Sea, North Atlantic, and throughout the oceans of the world as their range was 12,750 Nautical miles. The standard crew complement was 55-63 seaman and officers.
The 105MM deck gun was a very intimidating weapon with its 111 rounds on board. There was little room for extra passengers. These subs were known to operate in pairs and their "Radio" [resupply] ships were also plying the same waters near British Naval Weather Ship 4YJ. Intelligence gathering was the subs mission in the North Atlantic Ocean and the plight of a C-124 in distress would have been a tempting target to explore. This photo is an accurate view of the sky and sea conditions during the day-light hours of 23 Mar 1951. It was into these seas that 0244 ditched successfully.
