An Entertaining & Informative Vintage Automobile Internet Magazine
March 12, 2011
Ms. Teichgraeber appears to have been from Eureka, Kansas in Greenwood county. She was born in 1910 and died in 2000. The photographer would have had to travel quite a distance for that time to take a picture of her – Lindsborg is a 3-4 hour drive from there today.
Well… it gets a little more complex than that. A branch of the Teichgraebers operated one of the mills in Lindsborg, which today has been restored and is something of a local landmark. Their house, next to the mill, has also been painstakingly restored and is on the National Historic Register. I’m not sure of Leona was a niece of the Lindsborg Teichgraebers, or what the exact story is, but perhaps some enterprising genealogist will take up the picture.
This Leona Teichgraeber was born in Lindsborg (1897-1954). Her older sister Minnie married William Hagstrom who was a brother in the Hagstrom Bros. Mfg. Co. located in Lindsborg. They manufactured anything from inside tube blow out patches and other automobile accessories to retractable hanging electric lamps for the home. Leona and Millie’s father owned the Smoky Valley Roller Mill which after his death in 1907 was run by Hagstroms, two of which were married to Teichgraeber sisters of Leona.
This is my grandmother’s sister and my mother’s namesake.. My grandmother was Antonia Teichgraber Hagstrom. She married Emanuel Hagstrom. My mother was Leona Hagstrom Chappell. Thanks for posting this photo.
