Oak – 2 Lydia Court, Hawthorn Woods

This oak tree is on the property which was once owned by a George Fasse.  There are two grave sites at St. Matthew Lutheran Church on Old McHenry Rd that bear the name Fasse.  One is for George W. Fasse- (1820-1889- and his wife Wilhemina) and the other is George A.Fasse ( 1867-1922- and wife- Emma).  Presumably, these are father and son.  There was a great influx of German immigrants into what is now Hawthorn Woods in the mid-1800’s and the Fasse’s property undoubtedly included groves of oak trees that are still thriving on this property.
