South Plank Township

Edith and Meta Nagel report that William Klett, Sr.'s mother was buried south of their windmill on the Nagel farm. The Klett home was located about where their driveway from the public road goes south to Nagel's house. The Klett home was a log cabin. Until recently the basement or cellar of the log cabin was visible.

South of the log cabin location approximately one-fourth mile were swamp areas with high swamp grass. It was in this area that Mrs. Klett was found drowned and she was buried in this vicinity. Her age or the date of her death are not known.
