Emma Elsie (Claussen) Palen

Birth: Feb. 15, 1865
Monee
Will County

Daughter of Henry Claussen and Maria “Mary” A. Koble both born in Germany.

Emigrated in 1855 to Illinois. There name was also spelled Classen, and Classen.
I was so excited to find Emma in the 1870 Census for Illinois, so now after 25 yrs. of searching I know who her parents and siblings were.

Emma Elsie (Claussen) Palen, beloved first wife of Frank Joseph Palen, married in 1885 in Caledonia, Houston County, Minnesota.

Mother of Phylis Adele Eugenia(Palen) Linderman, my Grandmother. I never knew my Great Grandmother, Emma because she died before I was born.

My Mother was Jean Marie (Linderman) Frederick Mancill, and she told me that Emma was Lutheran, but Frank was Catholic. And…that poor Emma had to attend her church alone, because she had promised to raise their children as Catholic.

My Grandmother wasn’t allowed to attend church with her Mother, and was forced to attend Catholic schools until she was in High School. Phylis changed spelling of her name to Phyllis, and then she begged her Father to allow her to go to Public High School. He never forgave himself for it, because she married a Lutheran not a Catholic.

Through research, thanks to LeRoy Amacher, I found out that Frank and Emma were both buried in the Mount Calvary Catholic Cemetery in Dubuque, Iowa, beside each other.

Emma was a good, loving, and kind woman. She was a homemaker.

Emma and Frank had four children Leo, Phylis, Hedwig, and Flossie Palen. Hedwig and Flossie died very young.

They have many, many descendants. They would be proud.

One of their daughters, my Grandmother, Phylis Eugenia (Palen) Linderman, and Harry William “Billie” Linderman, had four daughters:

Yvonne (Burgess Levesque), Yvarra “Billie” (Jackson), Jean Marie (Frederick) (Mancill), and Patricia Mae “Patsy” (Cooke), and no sons.

Michael “Mac” “Mike” Henry McBurnette, Texas, U. S. Air Force, Vietnam War

God bless all our troops, that gave their life’s to fight for what they thought was right.

My mentor, boss, friend, Michael Henry McBurnette was an Air Force Helicopter pilot during Vietnam War.

He survived for 20 years, but his PTSD, Alcoholism, and addictions killed him. He could not escape from that awful war! 

He committed suicide by carbon monoxide poisoning in 1995 in Sugar Land, TX.

Thirteen of his buddies died in the helicopter crash, that he survived. He suffered from Survivor Guilt too! He never got over it. God bless his memory.

Mac helped a lot of suffering alcoholics and addicts to begin recovery, in the TDCJ-ID Central unit in Sugar Land, TX. He was loved by many! He worked for the prison system, and helped start a group at the Jester II unit for veterans. God, I miss him!

Mac worked as Senior Counselor, for SATP (Substance Abuse Treatment Program) department, for the prison system at the Central unit from April 1, 1985 to Oct. 28, 1994.

Promoted to Regional Director of SATP, where he worked tirelessly up until his suicide on Jan. 15, 1995. I too, was very disillusioned with the prison system, that chose to just “sweep it under the rug”, and by it I mean Mac’s suicide.

He had been sober for over twenty years. That month we had a quarterly meeting at Jester I, Richmond, TX. No one even mentioned his name! He was supposed to lead that meeting!

Needless to say I was pissed. David asked me if I was alright, and I answered, “Hell, no I am not OK!” Mac suffered and died, and not one person even mentioned him or acted like they missed him.

I knew that no one cared about the inmates, but after that I realized that they didn’t care about us dedicated employees either.

I left that chaotic dysfunctional system in 1996, after five years of dedicated, hard work trying to help alcoholics and addicts begin their road to recovery. God never gives up on us, even when we do. RIP Mike!

Note: Mike was cremated.  He was A1C, US AIR FORCE.

Thanks for your service to our country, Mac. Rest in peace. I miss you.

Michael Henry Mac McBurnette Helicopter pilot in Air Force in Vietnam.

Poor Mike he suffered from what we call PTSD or “Survivor Guilt”.

All thirteen of his buddies were killed when their helicopter was shot down in Vietnam. Mike was the only survivor, but it scarred him for the rest of his life. He suffered from his own demons but he helped many a suffering alcoholic/addict in the Texas Department Criminal Justice-ID to get clean and sober.

Mike was my supervisor-Senior Counselor-at the Central unit at One Circle Drive, Sugar Land, Fort Bend County, Texas.

The causalities continue to mount up for that “horrible” war. Mac, I miss you so much still! You are gone but not forgotten. I will keep your memory alive!

Love, your friend, Sally

Mike's Medals

Mike wanted his body cremated, and his ashes spread around the Vietnam Memorial, but we were told that we couldn’t do that, and only people who were killed in battle could be buried there. So, his ashes were spread here at the Houston National Cemetery, Houston, Harris County, Texas.

Michael Henry McBurnette’s Memorial, January 23, 1995, in the Houston National Cemetery.

Mike or Mac was a helicopter pilot in Vietnam, thirteen of his buddies were killed when his helicopter was shot down. He was the only survivor. He suffered “survivor guilt”, “depression”,  and “post traumatic” stress syndrome” for twenty years after.

My Memorial page that I wrote for Mike’s funeral, but I was so broken up that I couldn’t read it. So, Chaplain Gonzales read it for me. I have kept my promise to you Mac.

Winfred B, David M, and I continued to go into that same prison, the Central unit, where we worked together, to “carry the message” of recovery to those walking wounded boys.

Mike had wanted his ashes spread by the Vietnam Wall, but since he did not die in the war they would not allow it.

Master Sergeant Albert George “Al” Junkert

Birth: Aug. 16, 1899
Illinois, USA

Death: Jul. 11, 1985
Jacinto City
Harris County
Texas, USA

Father: Henry M. Junkers (also spelled Junkert) born in Germany in April 1874. He emigrated in 1888. He died on 1 February 1906 in Galesville, Piatt Country, Illinois. Buried in the Mackey Cemetery.

Mother: Wilhelmina “Minnie” C. Junkers (also spelled Junkert) born in Illinois in 5 Oct. 1875. Died in 1971 Galesville, Piatt County, Illinois.  Buried in Mackey Cemetery. 

Al Junkert was my best childhood friend’s uncle. Etta Louise (Johnson) Wilson, and me visited Al every summer for a week. He had no family except for Etta’s Mother, Dorothy Jean Williams Johnson. He didn’t have any children of his own, so he loved for us to come visit him. We were spoiled by him. He was a such a good-hearted man.

Wife: Etta Louise Junkert (my friend, Etta was named after her paternal aunt) Al and Etta had no children. Daughter of George L. Williams and M.T. Hawkins.  

Resided: Illinois, Colorado, Bexar County, Texas, and Corpus Christi, Texas (in 1960’s).

Al was a proud U.S. Army veteran from World War I and a Patriotic American.

He drove us to the movies, and gave us spending money to buy whatever we wanted. We planted flowers. We learned how to wash clothes with one of the old ringer type wash tubs, and hung the clothes out on the line to dry. Al let us pick all the figs and fruit that we wanted to eat off his trees. Al lived in Corpus Christi, TX and Etta lived at 1706 Cheston Drive, and I lived at 1709 Cheston Drive, in Jacinto City, Harris County, Texas 77029.

He drove all the way to Jacinto City to pick us up, and brought us back. Al was retired from the U.S. Army Air Corps. He lived just a few miles from the beach. We loved it. He drove us to the beach and let us stay as long as we wanted to. We all played cards and games together. For a week out of the year…we were treated like little princesses. He made us feel special! Etta’s Dad had died when she was only 4, Al was his brother-in-law.

Poor Al died of skin cancer. He was truly loved and he made a real difference in our lives. Al donated his body to science, so that they could use his body to help find a cure for cancer.
