       Otto Wandsneider had worked in Milwaukee but moved to Franksville in Racine during the late 1920's becoming a barber to support his family. The family later moved out to Lannon seeking a better life when it was learned another man who had recently opened a barber shop wanted to get out of the business. The  lived above  Leo Hagen's The Dugout for a time. 

    The barbershop soon expanded to include a small grocery/convenience store alongside, and for a time the family lived upstairs.

    Angela Wandsneider dies in 1922 and is buried at St James cemetery.

    The Wandsneiders moved the grocery store/barbershop across the street (on Lannon Rd. just south of driveway entrance to present Village Hall) and lived in the upstairs quarters.

    D. Wandsneider dies in 1928 and is buried at St James cemetery.

    1927 - Shirley Wandsneider is born.

    Shirley Wandsneider married Gordon DeLorm in 1946. She had met him a couple years earlier when visiting her Watertown cousins.

    Later the family lived in the old Miller home which had been purchased by Walter & Connie Becker (late 1950's).
