In Reply to: Aufderheide family history in New Ulm, M by Steven J. Aufderheide of 33

This message is for anyone interested in the Aufderheide family around and in New Ulm. I am John W. Aufderheide, currently residing in the historic Harkin Store site, along the Minnesota River, 10 miles nw of New Ulm. I can tell you that the WWll flyer was, of course, Jack, who I got to know in the years before his death. His family still owned Aufderheide brick and tile until a few years ago. Some of his kids still live in New Ulm, Bill, who ran the tile yard until it was sold, Jim, who is a school teacher in New Ulm public School. The tile facility has now been sold and moved to the nearby town of Courtland. Although my knowledge of the Aufderheides in New Ulm is limited, I can tell you that Jack's Grandfather and my great-Grandfather were brothers.(I think) Somehow, they split up the business and my side of the family ended up near Wanda and near Lamberton. My side of the family ended up near Gibbon, Mn. (20 miles north of New Ulm) One of the neat things about Aufderheide Brick and Tile is that they made bricks with 'New Ulm' formed into each brick. I have several of these bricks which were given to me by a friend who found a pile in his basement. I'll check the website in the future for any more information.....
