THE RASMUSSENS

FamilyTree4

 

INTRODUCTION

This is my maternal grandmother Frances Ruth Rasmussen Chinn Cornwall Richardson’s personal history as written by herself, begun earnestly in 1992 and completed by 1994 for her volume of family history The Kuster/Castor Family 1520 – 1994 (474 Years).  The stories of so many other descendants begins with Frances Rasmussen’s story, which began on page 770 (cover page in the second volume of her book).

Frances’ parents Claudius & Myrta Rasmussen

For this online edition of her personal recollections, other than a few obvious typos, changing the cover page image, adding extra photos (in black frame), and replacing photocopies with digital scans of actual photographs where possible, the original text is preserved.  I have only excluded page 801, a list of Schoolmates in Muscatine, a scan of which can be seen here.
