A possible Explanation of the origin could be as per Jeannot Nehrenhausen:”Pletschette” comes from the Latin name “Pilatus”. This original Roman name has been affected by various phonetic changes during a period of more or less one thousand years (1st > 10th century A.D.). By the year 1000, this evolution came to an end, producing the definitive form “Pletschette”. During this millenarian period, “Pletschette” has been a Christian name (first name), that eventually became a family name about 1500.

My Maternal 2nd. Great Grandmother, Mary “May” Haupert, Luxembourg

Image result

My second great maternal grandmother was Mary “May” (Haupert) Palen.
She emigrated from Luxembourg in 1854 to Castle Garden Immigration Center, New York City, New York at the age of 9 with her father, Frank Haupert. I believe that her mother had died in Luxembourg, because I never have found any information or records on her whatsoever.

Screenshot (121)Screenshot (122)

They resided in Caledonia, Houston County, Minnesota. Leopold was a farmer and May was a homemaker, and they had fifteen children according to Family records.
The 1880 U. S. Census for Caledonia, Minnesota, showed her father, Frank Haupert, a widower, and retired farmer, residing with them according to PALEN family records.

Mary May <i>Haupert</i> Palen

Thanks to Leonard Greenwood, I now have a photo of Leopold & Mary (Haupert) Palen’s headstone. Thanks so much, Leonard.

“Today (August 21, 2012), my Mom, Virginia (Palen) Long, became the longest-living Palen in the family tree. She surpassed May “Mary” Haupert Palen by one day today. My Mom actually knew May, her Great Grandmother. May used to have Mom sit at her feet and tell her stories about riding a covered wagon all the way to Caledonia, Minnesota. She also told her how the Indians sometimes would ride into town and scare the women. May, who was quite brave, helped care for the squaws and their babies. Its remarkable that Mom knew someone who was born in 1844! Mom’s memory is very short these days, but she’s outstanding when she reminisces about things that happened in her childhood!” source: Mark Richard Long (my cousin)
