“Big Lake resident William W. Osteyee, 68, died Sept. 30 at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Seattle. A joint funeral between the Loyal Order of the Moose Lodge in Palmer and the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2509 in Palmer was held at the Palmer Moose Lodge. A viewing preceded the service. Pallbearers were Fred Akers, John Brodigan, Campbell Hodge, Craig Carlson, John Weisenberger and Mike Casqueira. Friends met afterwards at Post 2509 for refreshments and sharing of memories.

Mr. Osteyee was born Jan. 23, 1924, in Middlebury, Vt. He left school after the eighth grade and moved to California. He joined the Army Transport Service during World War II and was honorably discharged in 1945 after serving in the Asiatic Theater. He then moved to Anchorage and, in September 1947, joined Local 1281 of the Carpenters Union. Mr. Osteyee enjoyed telling stories of major projects he worked on throughout Alaska. During the winters, he was always in demand for inside work in office buildings, homes and bars. He did much of the finish work in the local carpenter hall at 407 Denali St. in downtown Anchorage. Mr. Osteyee was an avid horse lover. At one time, he had as many as 26 and trained some for horse racing. Carpentry and Western music brought him much enjoyment, especially during his years of confinement. He also enjoyed the friendships of many of the band members in the Valley and Anchorage.

Mr. Osteyee is survived by his special friends, Noreen James of Wasilla, and Al Casqueira of California. Arrangements were handled by Kehl's Forest Lawn Mortuary and Crematory.”

12 Charles II reigned from 1649 to 1685. In 1684, before the death of Charles II, his brother James II stole the records of Charles marriage and certificates of the births of his children. He had James, Duke of Monmouth beheaded in 1685, and himself ascended the throne in 1685. The remaining children, Charles and Mara, were smuggled to France (out of Scotland, and later taken to America in 1687). James II succeeded his brother Charles II reigning from 1685 - 1688, was then driven out in the bloodless revolution of 1688 by his son-in-law William [III] of Orange and daughter Mary [II], who reigned 1689 - 1702. Under Anne who reigned 1702-1714 as a result of Protestants placing her on the throne rather than James III, the Pretender - her half brother. This marked the last of the House of Stuart - her successor being the first of the House of Hanover - George I (1714-1727).

Another account from Donna Charboneau: "Info from Civil War Records, Warren Co, NY --- Lewis (sic) was a farmer in Hague, NY. He entered the military in Crown Point, NY, with a rank of Private with the 5th Cavalry, Co H of the NY Volunteers on Sep 17, 1862 for a 3yr enlistment. He was "taken prisoner March 23rd, 1863 at Chantilly, VA to Belle Island. Exchanged during the month, recaptured July 6, 1863. Sent to Belle Island. Died of Starvation." The American Civil War Soldiers database states that Louis' second capture occurred at Hagerstown, MD."

21 Dominique Domingue fought in the French and Indian wars under Marquiss Montcalm in Arcadia and was driven out of Arcadia with the Huguenots to the USA. The Domingue family came from France and were the neighbors of the Froniers in Southern France and were feuding. They came to America under the name of Ostei (Ostiguy) Domingue. Then the different families took whatever names they thought best. Some were Osti, Ostis, Estey, Esteys, and Austin. (source: handwritten notes by Wallace Osteyee with corrected name spellings by Wallace [Skip] Osteyee, Jr.)

Notes from Bruce De Larm (December 2007): The family’s surname appears as Ostigui Dit Dominque most of the time in the Catholic Church’s Canadian records. Ostilly, Ostie, Ostillie, Ostiguy, and Ostigny (with and without the Dit Dominque) are common variations in the Canadian records. Osteyee is the most common version found in U.S. records. Francois was baptized as Francois Osteguy in Marieville, Rouville, Quebec. Emilie was baptized in Chambly (St. Joseph), Rouville, Quebec. Francois brought his family to the Hague, NY area a little before 1850 where most of them resided until after the Civil War.

Name changed from Ostiguy; entered the US at Burlington, VT.

Research from Wendy Osteyee: “The 8th child of Louis and Marguerite is the ancestor that immigrated to the United States - Vermont, specifically. When he did so, the name changed to Osteyee. On his baptismal record of June 9, 1805, he is still Ostiguy but on his marriage record of April 19, 1825, he is referred to as Ostilly. He was a farmer when in St. Césaire…. He seems to have stayed quite near Lake Champlain, Essex, Chittenden, Burlington are the all the locations he may have lived in. There are some work evidences of ‘Gates and Co’, and Burlington Woolen and his death certificate says ‘stone mason’…. His name also changed to Francis at some time in the US.”

29 From her obituary: “June Engelbrecht, the former June-Marie Fink, of the pioneer Fink-Lorentzen family, died on May 11 at University of Missouri Hospital in Columbia. She was the beloved wife of Lloyd Engelbrecht of Cincinnati, loving sister of Dorothea Fink, of Fitchburg, Massachusetts, and the late William Nelson Fink of Omaha, who died December 31, 2008. June Engelbrecht was the devoted mother of Khadija Fouad of Jeffersontown, Kentucky, and Julie Rowlands of Broadview Heights, Ohio, and dear grandmother of Omar Fouad of Nashville, Maryam Fouad of Louisville, and Ibrahim Fouad and Hussain Fouad of Jeffersontown. June was a nationally-known authority on Henry C. Trost, a major figure in the architecture and planning of El Paso and other cities and towns of the Southwest in the early twentieth century. She was co-author of Henry C. Trost: Architect of the Southwest; among the awards the book won was The Texas Historical Commission Award for the Best Specialty Publication of 1981. She went on to become cocompiler of a complete catalogue of the works of Henry C. Trost and the firm of Trost & Trost, funded by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and housed in the El Paso Public Library. Her last lecture on Trost was at the University of Texas in El Paso in 2007. Born in Philadelphia on September 1, 1930, she grew up in El Paso, where she attended the Radford and Dudley schools and graduated from El Paso High School in 1947. She earned two degrees from Mills College in Oakland, California, in 1951 and 1953, the latter an M.A. degree in art history. She went on to study at the Institute of Fine Arts at New York University, before serving as a curator at the Smith College Museum of Art in Northampton, Massachusetts. A resident of Cincinnati since 1981, she served as a volunteer at the William Howard Taft National Historic Site, and at the Cincinnati Art Museum. She was an authority on the historic factory buildings, "Ivorydale," in St. Bernard, near Cincinnati, designed by Solon S. Beman for Procter & Gamble, and delivered a breakthrough paper on the topic at a national meeting of the Society of Architectural Historians in Washington, D.C., in 1986. Active as a photographer, she documented the buildings of Trost, Beman and other architects as well as the stained-glass windows of Cincinnati. Her other work in photography explored the imaginative and creative aspects of the medium. A memorial meeting will be held at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 6, 2009, at the Maisons Lafayette Clubhouse, 879 Rue de la Paix, Cincinnati, Ohio 45220. Memorial gifts may be made to: June and Lloyd Engelbrecht Scholarship Fund, c/o Laura Dorl, Director of Development, College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning, University of Cincinnati, PO Box 210016, Cincinnati, Ohio 45221-0016.

30 From his obituary: “Lloyd Charles Engelbrecht, internationally known art historian and professor emeritus from the University of Cincinnati, passed away quietly in his sleep on December 31, 2016 after a battle with cancer. He was born on October 14, 1927 in St. Louis, Missouri to Arthur Engelbrecht, a minister, and Gladys Osteyee Engelbrecht, a teacher and homemaker. Dr. Engelbrecht's most recent book was the comprehensive biography Moholy-Nagy: Mentor to Modernism. He coauthored the award-winning book, Henry Trost, Architect of the Southwest, with his late wife of more than 50 years, June Marie Fink Engelbrecht. In addition, he authored many scholarly articles, essays, and chapters and gave numerous talks over his long career as an art historian. Dr. Engelbrecht, a decorated World War II veteran and lifelong antiwar activist, was proud of the fact that he served his country without firing a shot. He recounted his service by remarking that he removed the bullets from his gun before working his shifts as a military policeman. Dr. Engelbrecht will be fondly remembered by his colleagues, students, friends, and family for his scholarship, political activism, generosity, and wit. He particularly enjoyed playing with words. For example, as a result of the feminist movement, he added phrases such as "person-hole cover" gleefully to his lexicon. Dr. Engelbrecht is survived by his daughters, Julie Rowlands (David), Khadija Engelbrecht Fouad (Aladdin), his grandchildren Omar Fouad (Noor), Maryam Fouad, Ibrahim Fouad, and Hussain Fouad, and his sisters Betty Vanni and Charlotte Erikson. As generous in death as in life, Dr. Engelbrecht donated his body to medical science. No memorial service is currently planned. In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be made to your favorite progressive cause, such as the ACLU or Planned Parenthood.” Engelbrecht, Lloyd Charles (I457)

47 Member of the Christian Endeavor Union, serving as the Prison Superintendent.

Article reads: "A Friend of the Prisoners". [source The California Endeavorer, December 1927 - January 1928, Volume XV, Number 5]

"The California C.E. Union is fortunate in having Leon C. Osteyee as their Prison Superintendent. His untiring love and devotion to his "job" at the three state penal institutions have won him a place in the hearts of many hundreds of men behind the gray walls. We will probably never be able to fully measure the tremendous amount of good that he has done for those less fortunate than we. It is not an uncommon sight to walk into his office in San Francisco and find him busily engaged in trying to help an ex convict find a position of respect and start life anew.

Besides his work at the prisons, Leon Osteyee manages to help on the County Executive of the Marin Union. His "living expense" job is that of a real estate broker, but he says this is only a sideline.

Leon Osteyee truly lives his Christianity."
