- I am looking for direct decendants of the following people:
Gustav Schroeder and Charlotte Gildehaus from Wolfhagen, Hessen and
Dissen, Hannover B: 15 Dec 1842 and 14 Jun 1847. Maternal G-
Children: Guster B: 1872 New York
Henry B: 1876 Missouri
William B: Nov 1874 Missouri
wife: Emma Wirth B: Feb 1860 Shelby Co IL
Children: Hattie or Hedwig (depending on which census you are
looking at)B: Mar 1898
Hilda B: 1903
Martin F. B: 1904
Arthur H. B: 1909
I just found my g-grandparents name a few weeks ago and then last
week discovered that my grandfather (Frederich William Schroeder B:
Dec 9 1883, married Nita Risser) whom I had thought his line ran out
because he had three girls had older brothers I didn't know about.
One (William) I even found info about his family. That means there
is a distinct possiblity that there are living Schroeders today that
I am directly related to and I would love to meet them. All of these
people have lived at one time or another in Shelby Co. IL either in
or close to Strasburg IL.
