About Leonhard Põdra

Minu vanaema (ema ema) elas pärast vanema tütre Helene abiellumist tütre Marie ja poja Leonhardiga Linnamäe talus. Neile tuli külla Kadri vend Jüri Aaver, kes elas Tartus. Ta oli kehva tervisega ja poolhaige. Tõi nende peresse tüüfuse. Ise tüüfust ei põdenud, oli pisikute kandja. Kui külast ära läks, jäid kõik haigeks- vanaema Kadri, minu ema Marie ja ema poolvend Leonhard. Ema põdes läbi ja oli vaevalt tervenenud. Oli äärmiselt kurnatud ja kõhn. Suri nende ema Kadri. Ei paranenud tüüfusest. Kui oli Kadri matus, siis Leonhard olevat olnud (12-13a. vana) nii nõrk ja jõuetu, et ei jaksanud tõusta, kui õuest Kadri (Leonhardi ema) kirst ära viidi. Siis minu ristiisa August tõstis ta aknale järele vaatama, ise ei jaksanud.

Minu ema ja Leonhard said terveks. Nende ema Kadri suri.

Kui Kadri suri, siis jaotati pärandus nii, et lapsed said igaüks oma taluosa. Pool Linnamäe talu sai Helene ja pool minu ema Marie. Leonhardile määrati 5 ha maad.

My Grandmother (my mother’s mother), later lived with Grandmother’s daughter Helene’s mariied daughter Marie and her son Leonhard at the Linnamäe farm. One day kadri's Brother Jüri Aaver, came to visit. He lived in Tartu. He was Semi-sick and in poor health. He brought their family Typhoid! He himslef had no history of Typhoid, he was just a carrier of the germ. When he left, Everyone got sick- Grandmother Kardi, my mother Marie and my mother’s half brother, Leonhard. My Mother, suffered through it, and barely recovered. She was very skinny and exhausted. Their mother, Kardi, died. She did not improve or recover from the typhus. When it was Kadri’s funeral, Leonhard (age 12 or 13) Was so weak and powerless, that he didn’t have the strenght to get up, while outside, his mother, Kadri, was being taken away in her coffin. Then my godfather, August, Lifted him up to the window, so he could watch it leave, because he didn’t have the strength to see for himself.

My mother and Leonhard got better.Their mother Kardi had died. When kardi died, then, at her bequest, her Children got a portion of her farm. Half of Linnamäe farm went to Helene, and half to Marie. Leonhard was given 5 hectars of land.
