The Last Will and Testament of Heinrich Goossen (1824-1906)

I only know my grandfather through secondary sources: He died before I was born. The same is true of my Father and his Grand-father. In talking with my mom about the upcoming F.M.Goossen reunion I started thinking about what his grandfather was like. I searched for Heinrich Goossen (1824-1906) online, and right off found a record of him in a Kansas Will and Probate database. Here is the transcription:

Buy Valium Bristol Last Will and Testament of Heinrich Goossen.
In the Name of God: Amen
I, Heinrich Goossen, of sound mind and sober judgement, mindfull of the fact nevertheless, that our human life is short and uncertain, declare and publish this my last will and testament:-
1. After my death, all my debts shall be fully paid out of the person and Real property of which I may die possessed. Also any and all doctor bills and funeral expenses.
2. My property consists of the following assets;- The South Half of the South West Quarter of Section 27- Township 20 – Range 2 East of the 6th Principal Meridian, on which there now is a mortgage of $300.00.
On July 20th 1885 I gave to my son Heinrich Goossen in Russia as part of his inheritance the sum of 150 Russian Roubles – he is to remain in peaceable possession of this until the time of my death – provided there be added to this sum interest at six per cent per annum from July 20th 1885 to the time of my death, and this interest is to be considered as part of his inheritance paid to him.
On November 15th 1897, I gave to my daughter Maria Krause, nee Maria Goossen the sum of $135.00 as part of her inheritance, to bear interest at 6 per cent per annum from said date until the time of my death, the accruing interest to be added to said sum of $135.
On November 13th 1897, I gave to my daughter, Justina Janzen, nee Justina Goossen the sum of $45.00 as part of her inheritance, to bear interest at six per cent per annum from said date to the time of my death, the accruing interest to be added to said sum of $45.
My sons Frank H. Goossen and Jacob H. Goossen have so far received nothing by way of inheritance.
Now, it is my wish that after my death, my five children, viz: Heinrich Goossen, Maria Krause nee Goossen, Granz H. Goossen, Jacob H. Goossen and Justina Janzen nee Goossen or their legal heirs shall all inherit equally, share and share alike of all the property remaining after my decease, including the amounts already advanced with interest thereon as above described.
3. I hereby name and appoint my son Franz H. Goossen as the executor of this my last will and testament, and request that he be accepted and confirmed by the probate Court of this county and state without bonds.
4. After the foregoing statements and dispositions of my personal and real assets had been read to me and translated to me in the German language, without any duress or undue persuasion but of my own free will and accord I affixed my name and seal thereto and declare this as my last will and testament this 25th day of November A.D. 1900 at Hillsboro, Kansas.

Saint Vincent Archabbey

My mother in law took us to St. Vincent College where she now works. While on campus we got to visit the Saint Vincent Archabbey. It was a delight. The mixture of modern and traditional art there is wonderful.

Part of a Benedictine monastery, the archabbey basilica was a moving experience.

Beautiful stained glass windows illuminate the interior of the building, and illustrate biblical truths.

The basilica felt light and airy in spite of stones and iron and brass. The crypt was darker and more somber, it felt more frugal, but even there the art was impressive. I particularly liked the modern stained glass windows. They were darker than upstairs, and less colorful, and required more effort to understand what they communicate, but it was a wonderful experience.

no installable kernel was found in the defined APT sources

OK. So I got tired looking up the workaround for installing Ubuntu 10.04 in VirtualBox on Windows 7 and decided to make notes here, so I could find them easily the next time…

When the error message comes up switch to a console. Press Alt+F2 to switch when installing in Virtualbox. Press Enter to activate console and then:

chroot /target
apt-get install linux-generic

Once the kernel installation is complete (this takes about 10 minutes or so) type the following:


Press Alt+F1 to return to the installer and then answer “Yes” to the “Continue without installing a kernel?”

The installation will take a while, but should now work.

Pope Shenouda III dies

Last night I read about the death of Pope Shenouda III. Normally I would not have taken much notice of news like that. But a couple books I have been reading have connections to this man, so it was something that caught my attention.

The first book is “The Story of Christian Theology” by Roger Olson. (I know, I have been taking my time getting through this one.) I have been reading about the issue of the nature/natures of Christ, (the decade of 450) and have been noticing a diverging between the church at Antioch and the church at Alexandria. Basically Antioch says Christ had one nature, and Alexandria is saying He had two natures. There is some word and definition wrangling going on in order to try to preserve unity, but I feel the Oriental Orthodox Church and the Roman Catholic Church are about to split ways. In 1973 Shenouda III, Pope of the Coptic Orthodox Church, met with Pope Paul VI, Pope of Roman Catholic Church, to discuss their differences in Christology.

The second book is one entitled “The Spirituality of Fasting” and is written by Shenouda III himself.

My heart goes out to the suffering Christians in the middle east and I trust that changes in Egypt, both past and present will be for the Glory of God and the good of those who love Him. Romans 8:28.

Review: Skipping Christmas

Skipping Christmas
Skipping Christmas by John Grisham
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Skipping Christmas is not exactly gripping, as other John Grisham books are, but light and humorous. I enjoyed it.

Review: Pro Drupal 7 Development, Third Edition

Pro Drupal 7 Development, Third Edition
Pro Drupal 7 Development, Third Edition by Dave Reid
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Decent book on Drupal development. It helped me gain understanding on how Drupal works. It does suffer two flaws: There are quite a few typos, and this can be frustrating especially when they are in code. Drupal is a moving target, so even though it is Drupal 7, some of the exercises seem to be developed around Drupal 6 or an very early release of 7. When using this book make sure to check the errata on the apress website.
