Biographical or historical data
Both born in Germany, Henry J. Deubener and Elizabeth Kloeffel wed on December 24, 1887 in DeKalb County, Indiana. According to the Social Security Death Index, their son Walter Henry Deubener was born April 16, 1885. When Henry signed his will on Feb. 7, 1892, he left his estate to his wife, Anna Elizabeth, his son Walter H., and his two daughters Anna E. and Mabel E. On March 17, 1892, Henry Deubener held a public sale at his residence in Smithfield Township. On March 30, 1893, Joseph A. Frederick was appointed guardian of Walter H. Denener, who was a minor. Walter Henry Deubener married Lydia in 1908 and together they ran the S.S. Kruesge grocery store on Seventh Street in St. Paul, Minnesota. In 1920, the census taker listed them as living in St. Paul Ward 7, Ramsey, Minnesota. Walter was 34 and Lydia was 29. Because customers bought only as many groceries as they could carry, Walter, in 1918, invented a paper shopping bag with string reinforcing the bottom and running up the sides through holes and over the top to create handles. He filed for a patent in 1927 and was issued Patent number 1713747 on May 21, 1929. On May 15, 1935, an editorial published on his 50th birthday shows him as president of Deubener's Shopping Bag, Inc., Garfield Park, Indianapolis, Indiana. Another address stamped on the 2nd edition of the editorial give the address of 204 South Griggs Street, St. Paul 5, Minn. Walter died March 29, 1980.
