My Maternal 1st. Great Grand Uncle, Henry Palen, Caledonia, Minnesota

LEOPOLD & MAY PALEN, 1898, Caledonia, Minnesota

Birth: Feb. 6, 1877
Caledonia
Houston County
Minnesota, USA

Death: Nov. 12, 1959
Rochester
Olmsted County
Minnesota, USA 

Son of Leopold Frank “Leo” Palen and Mary “May” (Haupert) Palen of Luxembourg.

Emigrated in 1862 to Caledonia, Minnesota.

Baptized as Catholic in Saint Mary’s Catholic Church, 513 S Pine Street, Caledonia, MN, (507) 725-3804.

St. Mary’s had its beginnings in 1854, when Irish, German, and Luxembourg Catholics who settled in the Caledonia area began making plans to create a parish. The first step was to dedicate a cemetery, now known as Calvary Cemetery.

Having a school has also been important since the earliest days. The first Catholic school in Caledonia opened in 1870, and when there were two parishes, there were also two schools.

My maternal grandmother attended St. Mary’s Catholic School.
In 1927 the schools were merged into the Central Catholic School System, which included Loretto High School. Loretto closed in 1968.

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.
