This was my grandfather. There was quite a squabble in the family when his father passed away (Siebelt) , a couple of daughters managed somehow to "exclude" him from the will as my grandfather was known as Fred Gocken and as such was not "named" specifically in the will as such so he was left out. Also there was much grief in the family as by tradition, the youngest male was suppose to take over the farm. My grandfather as much as told them what he thought of that and thus the ill will was started. My father , Ted, who is 98 recounted much of this but as with that generation, they are sorta tight lipped on it all, so nothing will ever be known beyond this. Dad is the last, Siebelt died and all this happened when he was only 15 or 16....
