if anyone is still interested, my grandfather was george dobry, and he was born in around 1900--his parents names were, i think, august, and barbara lucas dobry from pilsen, bohemia--they settled in chicago at first, then migrated to the baldwin, michigan area and had several children, including george, otto, ann, emma, august and james. my grandparents only had one adopted child, but i think all the other children had children, which i can possibly help give info. about if still interested.

I am replying to Sheryl regarding the Dobry name. My great grandfather was Albert Dobry and he was from the village of Tremosna a few miles from Plzen in Bohemia. He had one brother Joe who also emigrated to the U.S.. Have no idea where Joe settled. Albert married Mary Eret from Tremosna.

Hi,
My name is Helen Radtke and I lived in Baldwin, Michigan most of my life, I currently live in Reed City, Michigan. My aunt Lenore Ellen Gleason (1897-1990) was married to James Dobry (Sept. 23, 1888-Oct. 18, 1966). They were married on June 5, 1943. So Jim was my uncle. My mother, Romayne Gleason-Radtke at one time wrote to Mae Willard. I believe that she was living in Maumee, Ohio at that time.
I remember George and Edith Dobry and also Otto. I believe that they both worked for the village of Baldwin at one time.

Hi my name is Lenor Hilbert Okeefe, I am hoping that the latest post from Willard that it is Shirley Willard or another relative. I have had one the Hendricks cabins, accross from the Octagon castle. We all have grown up together back here and everyone back here has had their cabins for around 53 yearsish. I wanted to get more info if anyone has anymore of pictures etc. of back in the time when Hendricks owned it and beyond, up to around 1962ish when we all bought our pieces of heaven back here. If you are Shirley I also grew up with the Johnsons (Octagon Castle), The pictures you gave the Johnsons were incredible and I was hoping if you had more ,any other info. So we can keep adding to our memories and history of this incredible magestic place back here. I love it.Hope to hear from all that have any info on the Octagon Castle near Baldwin,MI..Thank you!!
hoping to hear soon!
Lenor Hilbert Okeefe....my maiden name is Hilbert, daughter of Harold and Evelyn Hilbert.

the only pictures i have are the ones i copied for terri goede and her family--if you have seen them and copied them, that is all i have.

my aunt and uncle worked for the hendricks family, and they later adopted my mother, after their hendricks days were over.

ok...I do have copies of those pictures, they are wonderful. I was hoping to get more of insides of the cabins (like mine accross from Terri)or any memory. I didnt know if you revisited back here when you were growing up? I know that Terri and her family appreciated the pictures and info you gave them as I also. Terri's mom passed away about 2 1/2 years ago (it will be 3 this August), Terri is doing well she lost her husband about a year ago, her brothers Tom and Tim are doing well . We all have so many memories of our times here. We all bought at the same time and we all still own each of ours. Which I love. Sounds like your Aunt and Uncle were wonderful people. Did you know another owner Henry Rammow? If you are ever up for a drive you are always welcome..I think you know where we are at..take care and thank you for passing along those great pictures!
