In 1922 Louis went to a halloween party and won the booby prize…

Here are a couple of items that were in The Princeton Union newspaper, Thursday, November 2, 1922


Mr. and Mrs. Gamradt Entertain.  On Wednesday evening of last week a delightful Halloween party was given by Mr. and Mrs. Max Gamradt. Those present were Mr. and Mrs. Calvin Olson, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Manke, Mr. and Mrs. Louis Jesmer, Mr. and Mrs. Louis Stolle, Mr. and Mrs. Eph- riam Anderson, Mrs. Weeks and the Misses Weeks, Edith Erickson, Ena and Anna Mattson and Margaret Al-brecht. The evening was spent in playing Five Hundred. Mrs. Fred Manke was champion player while Mrs. Jesmer carried home the booby prize.


I believe that the Mr. and Mrs. Louis Jesmer mentioned above are Louis E. Jesmer and his wife Rose (Malotte) Jesmer.  I am related to the Jesmer’s through the Robideau line.  Louis would be my 1st cousin 4x removed.

I wonder what the booby prize was?!
