Pulaski Township Historical Society Museum The dress was worn by Ellen Sarah Hagenbuch Stoll (b. Jan. 1881 d. Nov. 1966). She mar- ried Dec. 4, 1901 to George John Stoll. She was the daugh- ter of William B. and Fannie Buehler Hagenbuch. She had a rough childhood - two broth- ers drowned in Salt Creek while their father was washing his wagon. The third brother was dragged to death, his foot entan- gled in the stirrup when his pony bolted. A younger sister was slightly mentally retarded after a high temperature during a childhood disease. Her father was acting as a deputy sher- iff and was shot and killed by an escaped mental patient in Chestnut. George and Ellen Stoll had four children; Olga married George Irwin and had seven children; Harold Stoll married Eda Boerger and had two sons; Harold's twin sister, Elsie, married to Raymond I_akin, who had three stepchil- dren; and Everett Stoll married Alma Hassebrock and had eight children. Ellen's remaining sister, Louisa Hagenbuch, mar- ried George's brother, Fred W. Stoll. The George and Ellen Stoll farm is near Chestnut and is now a Century Farm. Many Stoll and Irwin descendants live in Logan County. Courtesy of Mary Jane Erwin Jacobs who gave the Mt. Pulaski Township Historical Society Museum this dress with the story.
