    "WILLIAM A. KLESENER (Farmer and Stock-raiser, Post-office, Black Walnut).
    Mr. Klesener is one of the substantial, self-made and highly respected farmers of the county. He commenced a poor young man and worked for several years as a farm laborer, and then in the mines of California to get a start. As soon as he was able be bought land of his own in this county, which he improved, and afterwards bought other lands from time to time until be became one of the large land owners in the county. He owned at one time over 700 acres. Having given off some of his children, he still has about 400 acres, and a handsome homestead where he resides. Mr. Klesener was born in Westphalia, Prussia, November 15, 1824, and he was the third in a family of 13 children. His parents were Ferdinand and Elizabeth (Meyer) Klesener, both of whom are now deceased. The father died in 1847 and the mother in 1880. William A. came to America in 1846 and located in St. Charles county, where he obtained employment as a farm hand. In 1850 he went to California and for two years was engaged in mining. Returning to St. Charles county, he then bought a tract of unimproved land and made a farm. In 1854 he was married to Miss Minnie Windmeuller. Her parents came from Germany in 1851. They have four children: Ferdinand H., William R., Herman H. and Minnie C. They lost three in childhood. Mr. Klesener was postmaster for two years at Walnut Grove, and has repeatedly held the office of school director. He and family are members of the German Lutheran Church."

    One of the Kluesner branches of the family moved to the Fayette area of Missouri in 1882. When they did so, they changed the spelling of their name to Kleasner rather than Kluesner. Ferdinand became tired of people pronouncing his last name incorrectly so he simply changed the spelling.
