Trebon, Adolph 1862-1942 and Anna Kaskie Family

This story was taken from pages 164-165 of the Rock Valley St. Mary’s Catholic Church Book written for the centennial of the church in about 1982(?). The story was transcribed for this BIOS by Beth De Leeuw of the Greater Sioux County Genealogical Society. Some research notes were added.

ADOLPH TREBON was born in Buchanan County, Iowa on June 20, 1862, to Henry Trebon and Anna (Burke) Trebon. As a young man he spent two years farming near Bloomington, Nebraska, and at Storm Lake, Iowa. He came to Sioux County, Iowa about 1889.

After their marriage Adolph and Anna lived near Hudson, South Dakota, where their first daughter, EVA, was born on February 19, 1892. After two years they bought a farm seven miles west and one mile south of Rock Valley, Iowa, where they lived for about seven years. This is where their second daughter CHRISTINA (Tene) was born on March 15, 1897.

The Trebon family moved to Rock Valley, Iowa, in about 1899. Adolph will be remembered by his family and friends for the large garden he always planted and cared for, and the produce he sold and gave to others.
