John and Bertha (Leischner) Leischner

Information provided by Horst W. Gutsche

A report in an area history book for Plevna gives the following information on the the John Leischner and Bertha nee Leischner family. The article does not mention that Bertha was also a Leischner.

Mr. and Mrs. John Leischner were married in Breckenridge, Minnesota [other info shows married in Lehr, ND] in 1910. They homesteaded southwest of Plevna in a sod house. Their dowry was a horse and an ox with which they did their sod busting and haying. Later they built a home, which burned down, only to be rebuilt. They were the parents of 9 children. In 1928, in order for the children to get a high school education, they moved into Plevna. The purchased the old Congregational Church and remodeled it for their family dwelling. The house is still at its old location. The land where the high school is located was donated by the Leischners. They were very active in all school affairs, with all of the family participating in some kind of affair or another. They very seldom missed a basketball game, or a play in the local theater. For many years, 1918 to 1970, the Leischners boarded and roomed teachers on the farm, as well as in Plevna. During the summer months, Mrs. Leischner boarded children for confirmation school who came from the neighboring towns. The Leischner family were very supportive to the church to which they belonged.
