His parents were Henry Gottschalk and Elizabeth (Werth). Willie, Bill "Digger Willie," as he was always called, was a strong and well-built man. He was seen lifting by himself one end of a header barger when younger brother Al was pinned under neath its weight; thereby probably saving Al's life. William served in the United States Armed Forces in World War I. He played a clarinet in the Army banDIED Rosa Stoecklein was born September 29, 1898, in Munjor, Kansas, the eighth child of Christof and Henena (Herklotz) Stoecklein. There were nine children in that family. Rosa Stoecklein, unlike Bill, was rather small and trim in structure. William and Rosa were married May , 1919, in Schoenchen. Their wedding was a memorable one lasting several days. After their marriage, they moved to a farm west of Schoenchen, where they farmed next to William's father, Henry Gottschalk. While living on the farm, the only three children, Lorine, Ray and Gerald were born. Ray and Lorine attended Riverside School until 1935, when they moved to Schoenchen into the home own William's mothers Elizabeth Gottschalk. At this time they were still farming and also started to do some commercial trucking while consisted of hauling cattle, sand and grain. In 1941 William purchased 160 acres of pasture located half mile east of Schoenchen, at this time, they started to milk some cows which were brought to Schoenchen every morning. The pasture was a half mile east of Schoechen. When she was 41, it was detected that Rosa has cancer, which caused her trouble for twelve years. She died on November 20, 1951, at the age of 53 years. Despite her illness she never spared herself from house cleaning. In 1949 William and Rosa built a liquor store which William operated with his son Ray and wife Leola's help. Their son Gerald died on March 5, 1975 at Schoenchen at the age of 43. William and Rosa was a very devout couple and spared nothing to build a beautiful family. Rosa was like all the Stoecklein girls, a very devout and religious mother. William helped with the choir and sang along with the recording of the songs by "The Schoencheneers," reminders of the songs they used to sing in the "Good old Days." Submitted by Leola Gottschalk

Alois or Aloysius Steinbock and his wife, Elizabeth ( Geta ) Steinbock came to the USA from Germany about NOVEMBER. 1905. They brought with them a daughter, Barbara Steinbock who was born June 3, 1893 who was 11 years old and Henry Steinbock who was born: date unknown. There was another child born to them in Russia who died there. They settled in Wamego, Kansas as Alois was a railroader. On NOVEMBER 3, 1906, his wife, Elizabeth gave birth to Triplets: two boys and a girl. Their names were Adam, Susanna and Joseph. Alois's wife, Elizabeth died on NOVEMBER 16, 1906. Alois didn't have the means to care for the triplets and work, too, so he wanted them to be adopted by Catholic families. Susanna was adopted by: George and Barbara Prockish and the boys still hadn't been adopted They were all baptized on NOVEMBER 5, 1906 at St. Bernard’s Church, Wamego, Kansas. Sponsors were: Adam Reichenborn, Mrs. George Gareis and Joseph Macht. Susanna got ill and died FEBRUARY 28, 1907 at Wamego, Kans. Susanna and her Mother are buried on the same plot at the Wamego cemetery.
NOTE: Aunt JANE Gottschalk looked up this information in 1995 and located the grave and put a tombstone there. I have certificates of births, Baptisms and newspaper articles of Elizabeth and Susanna on their death, and church records of the cemetery plots all obtained from Aunt JANE Gottschalk, Hays, Kansas
Then in 1907, Alois, Barbara and Henry headed west and there's where he met and married Agatha Wasinger Werth on JANUARY. 15, 1909. Barbara would have been 15 years old at this time. It has been said that Barbara was doing housekeeping for the Bahl's, possibly her stepmother's sister Annie Bahl and, as the story goes, there was a Werth in Schoenchen who was a matchmaker and got John C. Befort and Barbara Steinbock to marry on OCTOBER 24, 1911 making her 18 years old
NOTE; I don't have much on Henry Steinbock. I do know he and his wife, Mary, had two dAUGUSThters and lived in Chicago, Ill. I have the original photos of Henry and Mary and another one of Henry, Mary and the two girls. I also have the large oval pictures of Barbara and John C. Befort on their wedding day and one of Henry Steinbock. I would like to find the members down from Henry if anyone can help me obtain this information. I was told he died in the 1960's.
NOTE; Aunt JANE Gottschalk never could find where Alois Steinbock was buried or where the two boys were placed I have two people working on the Aloysius Steinbock genealogy from the Topeka area as of this week. According to church records, he spelled his name Aloysius. Mother. And yes, the last name was spelled wrong in Mothers obituary, but I was over- ruled on that. I was disgusted when I found out the truth after the fact when I went through Mother's things and found some letters written to my Mother from Grace Steinbock. I didn't know her Uncle Joe and Aunt Grace, but when I came upon these letters, I sent Grace a letter and obituary advising her of Mothers death. Then one day, I got a call from Grace and we talked for an hour. I did get to meet her July 1, 2002, just a few weeks ago. This is where I got all these writings. Very interesting.

All married persons can thus be traced back to the family which they were born. 3) 3) 00=this sign indicates “double rings” and is a symbol of marriage. 4) 4) ==this cross, following a name, indicated that they are deceased, and the date following, when available, and tell of the date of death. FOREWARD With the celebration of the Bi-Centennial year of our Country, many documents and date have come alive, to awaken in the minds of our American citizens how rich their heritage over the past two hundred years has been. It makes people more proud of their Country, and spurs them on to learning more about its history. In the same spirit, many family histories have appeared in print in recent years to motivate, to remind the present generation and those yet to come, just who their ancestors were, from where they originated and what kind of people their forefathers really were. It has been a matter of great curiosity for me over a span of years, to wish for a clearer picture of our own Gottschalk relationship.
For many years my relives have suggested that somebody should make this research! It is difficult for me to understand how George Henry Gottschalk (188 to 1917), with his education and years of teaching, never thought to set to writing the history of his family, together with the migration of his three brothers and himself over to America. , beginning with the year 1867. The written documents and information an of those years in our relationship were, to say the least very meager. Over the last fifteen years, this feeling of curiosity that possessed me became a determined desire to find an answer. It became clearer to me, that if there was to be a Family Tree Record, I had better take the task in hand now. Being inexperienced in this type of work the beginnings were naturally difficult and disheartening, because I could not find sources of information about whether there were relatives of our Grandparents will living in Germany, and if so, what was their present address. Without this first step, I knew there would be no adequate “Family Story”. At least three or four persons going to Germany had promised me an honest search in the area of Osnabrueck, but it always ended in failure. In May of 1973, I met a man in Victoria, Kansas, named Mr. Heinrich Witteman, whose wife was a nice to Fr. Jordon Hammel, Capuchin. This gentleman was from Mannheim, Germany, working in the Police Department. He listened to my story of frustrations, and then made me a solemann promise to make a thorough search in the Remsede, Germany, area, where our grandparents were born and raiseDIED This was in May. His promise was” You will hear from me,” Nothing happened for eight months, and I thought it would end in the usual failure. Suddenly in January a letter arrived from Germany, telling me that Mr. Witteman had located a living relatiutiveve in that area, named Elizabeth Gottschalk, age 74 years, together with her address. I wasted no time writing alerter to her, explaining my projected Family Tree. Very quickly, Elizabeth Gottschalk’s married daughter, Hedwig Holtmeier, answered my letter, assuring me that her grandparent and pours were truly brothers. The rest of the history is in the first portion of our genealogy, Mrs. Holtmeir very graciously got all possible records from the old parish church, and whose records date back three hundred years. Through her efforts we have all the information from the home of our grandparents that was possible to finDIED It remained bow only to gather the information of the relatives in Pittsburg, Pa., and the Kansas area, which make up the contents of these books.
THE NAME “Gottschalk” HAS A VERY ANCENT AND INTERESTING ORIGIN. Because OF ITS CENTURIES OF USE AND ABUSE. It is not too surprising to find that ITS CORRECT SPELLING MAY BE DIFFICULT TO ESTABLISH. It contains two words: “Gott” and “Schalk.” The word Gott obviously means Gods. The problem arises with the second word “Schalk.” This is the crucial word, in old English writings, this word appeared with precisely the same spelling as in the family name, and it meant simply “servant.” Men, who worked in the service of royalty or people of greater means and wealth, were called “Schalks. This word was taken forever into the early German language with the same meaning of servant. In later years, the meaning of Schalk grew to take the meaning of a mischievous fellow. In very early centuries in Germany, the name Gottschalk appeared as a family name, meaning very simply “God’s servant.” Through the centuries, this name took on many variations in spelling, due to doubt, to the fact that names were carelessly written as they sounded, or the fact that many people simply could not spell their name correctly. The word “Gott” alone, sometimes appears as “Got.” “God,” “Gad,” “Cut,” or “Gat.” The second wor5d, “Schalk” appears in many more variations, for example,” “Schlat,” “Schall,” “Schalck,” or Shalk.” It you join these two words in all their possible variations; you can understand why the family name took on endless variety of spellings. It might be of interest to mention some people in early history bore this name. 1. Gottschalk of Orbits, who lived from 803 to 869, a Benedictine monk and theologian. He defected from the Catholic Church mainly because of his false teachings on the doctrine of Predestination. 2.
2. Gottschalk of Limburg, Germany. He lived from 1010 to 1098. He was a poet.
3. HISTORY OF THE GOTTSCHALK NAME AND COAT OF ARMS THE REMSEDE AREA Remsede is a small village, which is situated in the northern section of Germany, at the end of the Teutoburg forest, surrounded on both sides at the base of a series of low foot hills. The big city of Osnabrueck is just 13 miles to the north, a city of about 150,000 inhabitants. Remsede was always a rather small rural village, and at the present time there are only about 800 inhabitants. It is a lush farm area which is set back from any heavy highway traffic. Up until a few years ago, Remsede was an independent town, but in recent years they joined three little villages under one mayor. The area is now called Laer-Remsede. The two little towns are about two miles apart. In earlier 1800, the address for Remsede inhabitants was written in this way: Kingdom of Hannover, Principality of Osbabrueck, and town of Remsede. Hence you see that Remsede used to belong to the Kingdom of Hannover, not the town of Hannover. This led some of our relatives to say that our ancestry was from Hannover, Germany, which was not too accurate. The nearest large city, Osbabrueck, is just 13 miles to the north. Most of their business, advanced schooling, and other needs, were taken care of in this large city. On the map of Germany, just look for Osnabrueck, and Remsede is just 13 miles due south. In modern West Germany, the country is divided into States, similar to our division in America. Remsde is in the state known as Lower Saxony. The pictures in this chapter show you: 1) The picture of the little village 2) A composite of four buildings in the town 3) A picture of their very famous, ancient church 4) An aerial view of the home, just outside Remsede, of our earliest known relatives. The white portion of the building was the original home, and a portion in dark, has been added in the course of time. "Today the home is no longer in existence. All members of the first family were born and raised in this home. One of the most unique buildings in Remsede is the little parish church, under the patronage of St. Augustine. In 1935 they celebrated the eleven hundred the year of it counting. What makes it so unique is that is became an official pilgrimage chapel. It is quite authentic, that this altar was built back in the year 734. Many people from as far as Cologne made pilgrimages to this highly indulged chapel. Pictures show its earliest form with the tall, spire, but in recent years a new tower has been built, giving it a different look. The pictures of the village will give you some idea of the lovely, quiet Remsede, in which our early grandparents lived their early lives. Being nestled in this valley-like forest, away from the thoroughfare, it is easy to see that they loved its quiet and peaceful retreat.
The Beginning of the Gottschalk Genealogy Since the parish of St. Anthony's at Remsede was a Pilgrimage Chapel over the centuries, all of the church records for both Remsede and Laer, Germany, were kept in the St. Mary's Parish Church records for both Remsede and Laer, Germany, about two and a half miles from Remsede. In these books, which date back three hundred years, the following is written by its pastor: "The oldest entries at Laer, with the family name of "Gottschalk" date back to the year 1794." The very first parents found in that area were: Anton Gottschalk and A. Catherina Leinker There is no record of where they came from, or who their forbearers were. They simply appeared suddenly, with the baptism of their son, Bernhard Heinrich Gottschalk who is the ancestor of all the Gottschalk’s mentioned in this book. Whether or not they had other children is unknown.

HEINRICH CLEMENS AUGUST GOTTSCHALK was the eleventh child born of the union to Bernard and Anna Maria (Hagedown) Gottschalk, of Remsede, Germany. Of the five boys who survived birth and were married, August Gottschalk was the only one to remain in Germany. He inherited the home where the family was born and raiseDIED He most likely had military service in the German army, and when he retired from that, he took up the trade of farmer, village official and father. In the earlier years after the brothers separated, there was some communication between August and those in the United States. Unfortunately it did not continue, so that the only information remaining to us in the United States was the fact that there were relatives in Germany. Fortunately, Father Timothy succeeded in making contact with them, and as a result we have the complete record of the first family in our genealogy.

BERNARD HEINRICH GOTTSCHALK was the oldest of the four boys who came to America August 17, 1867. Also it states that he was married in Breese, Illinois, and Nov. 28, 1867. We have a strong suspicion that he came alone, and that the other brothers followed later. Before leaving his home stead, his records tell of his freely enlisting in 1st K.DIEDR. (A German army regiment) of the Hannover Germany Government. This enlistment lasted from 1855 to 1856. Shortly thereafter, he set sails to America. Not too long after his marriage in Breese, Ill., he came to Pittsburg, Pa., where he finally made his permanent home, and raised a large family of 14 children. Unfortunately, so many of the children died in early age, or infancy. His must have been a distressing life, since only five of the large family became of marriageable age, and did marry. He did visit his brother George Henry in Schoenchen, Kansas once. They also corresponded very much by mail and their letter were very lengthy and of a very spiritual nature.

In the family record, kept in the Family Bible of Bernard Henry Gottschalk, the name Mary Regina Gottschalk does appear, born on the same date as that of Mary Regina Gottschalk. Anna Maria, however, died on October 1, 180, and Mary Regina lived a long married life. The Grandchildren of Mary Regina insist that she belongs to the family of Bernard Henry Gottschalk, but we cannot find her baptismal certificate. We have accepted the word of the grandchildren, and concluded that Anna Maria and Mary Regina Gottschalk were twins.

Index of Families DEDICATION To all our parents , grandparents, who inspired us with their courage and good example, and above all, who kept our religious heritage in highest esteem, we dedicate this volume, so as an humble return of our love and gratitude.
LEGEND OF SIGNS AND SYMBOLS 1) In This book, every name is followed by a date, which always signifies the date of birth. 2) 2) Within each of the 5 main branches, each child will be given its own special serial number, which will also be used to identify the child and sits spouse when they are listed as a family. All married persons can thus be traced back to the family which they were born. 3) 3) 00=this sign indicates “double rings” and is a symbol of marriage. 4) 4) ==this cross, following a name, indicated that they are deceased, and the date following, when available, and tells of the date of death. FOREWARD With the celebration of the Bi-Centennial year of our Country, many documents and date have come alive, to awaken in the minds of our American citizens how rich their heritage over the the past two hundred years has been. It makes people more proud of their Country, and spurs them on to learning more about its history. In the same spirit, many family histories have appeared in print in recent years to motivate, to remind the present generation and those yet to come, just wo their ancestors were, from where they originated and what kind of people their forefathers really were. It has been a matter of great curiosity for me over a span of years, to wish for a clearer picture of our own Gottschalk relationship. For many years my relives have suggested that somebody should make this research! It is difficult for me to understand how George Henry Gottschalk (188 to 1917), with his education and years of teaching, never thought to set to writing the history of his family, together with the migration of his three brothers and himself over to America. , beginning with the year 1867. The written documents and information anof those years in our relationship were, to say the least very meager. Over the last fifteen years, this feeling of curiosity that possessed me became a determined desire to find an answer. It became clearer to me, that if there was to be a Family Tree Record, I had better take the task in hand now. Being inexperienced in this type of work the beginnings were naturally difficult and disheartening, because I could not find sources of information about whether there were relatives of our Grandparents will living in Germany, and if so, what was their present address. Without this first step, I knew there would be no adequate “Family Story”. At least three or four persons going to Germany had promised me an honest search in the area of Osnabrueck, but it always ended in failure. In May of 1973, I met a man in Victoria, Kansas, named Mr. Heinrich Witteman, whose wife was a nice to Fr. Jordon Hammel, Capuchin. This gentleman was from Mannheim, Germany, working in the Police Department. He listened to my story of frustrations, and then made me a solemann promise to make a thorough search in the Remsede, Germany, area, where our grandparents were born and raiseDIED This was in May. His promise was” You will hear from me,” Nothing happened for eight months, and I thought it would end in the usual failure. Suddenly in January a letter arrived from Germany, telling me that Mr. Witteman had located a living relatiutiveve in that area, named Elizabeth Gottschalk, age 74 years, together with her address. I wasted no time writing alerter to her, explaining my projected Family Tree. Very quickly, Elizabeth Gottschalk’s married daughter, Hedwig Holtmeier, answered my letter, assuring me that her grandparent and pours were truly brothers. The rest of the history is in the first portion of our genealogy, Mrs. Holtmeir very graciously got all possible records from the old parish church, and whose records date back three hundred years. Through her efforts we have all the information from the home of our grandparents that was possible to finDIED It remained bow only to gather the information of the relatives in Pittsburg, Pa., and the Kansas area, which make up the contents of these books.
THE NAME “Gottschalk” HAS A VERY ANCIENT AND INTERESTING ORIGIN. Because OF ITS CENTURIES OF USE AND ABUSE. It is not too surprising to find that ITS CORRECT SPELLING MAY BE DIFFICULT TO ESTABLISH. It contains two words: “Gott” and “Schalk.” The word Gott obviously means Gods. The problem arises with the second word “Schalk.” This is the crucial word, In old English writings, this word appeaed with precisely the same spelling as in the family name, and it meant simply “servant.” Men, who worked in the service of royalty or people of greater means and wealth, were called “Schalks. This word was taken fover into the early German language with the same meaning of servant. In later years, the meaning of Schalk grew to take the meaning of a mischievous fellow. In very early centuries in Germany, the name Gottschalk appeared as a family name, meaning very simply “God’s servant.” Through the centuries, this name took on many variations in spelling, due to doubt, to the fact that names were carelessly written as they sounded, or the fact that many people simply could not spell their name correctly. The word “Gott” alone, sometimes appears as “Got.” “God,” “Gad,” “Cut,” or “Gat.” The second wor5d, “Schalk” appears in many more variations, for example,” “Schlat,” “Schall,” “Schalck,” or Shalk.” It you join these two words in all their possible variations; you can understand why the family name took on endless variety of spellings. It might be of interest to mention some people in early history bore this name. 1. Gottschalk of Orbits, who lived from 803 to 869, a Benedictine monk and theologian. He defected from the Catholic Church mainly because of his false teachings on the doctrine of Predestination.
2. Gottschalk of Limburg, Germany. He lived from 1010 to 1098. He was a poet.
3. HISTORY OF THE GOTTSCHAL NAME AND COAT OF ARMS THE REMSEDE AREA Remsede is a small village, which is situated in the northern section of Germany, at the end of the Teutoburg forest, surrounded on both sides at the base of a series of low foot hills. The big city of Osnabrueck is just 13 miles to the north, a city of about 150,000 inhabitants. Remsede was always a rather small rural village, and at the present time there are only about 800 inhabitants. It is a lush farm area which is set back from any heavy highway traffic. Up until a few years ago, Remsede was an independent town, but in recent years they joined three little villages under one mayor. The area is now called Laer-Remsede. The two little towns are about two miles apart. In earlier 1800, the address for Remsede inhabitants was written in this way: Kingdom of Hannover, Principality of Osbabrueck, and town of Remsede. Hence you see that Remsede used to belong to the Kingdom of Hannover, not the town of Hannover. This led some of our relatives to say that our ancestry was from Hannover, Germany, which was not too accurate. The nearest large city, Osbabrueck, is just 13 miles to the north. Most of their business, advanced schooling, and other needs, were taken care of in this large city. On the map of Germany, just look for Osnabrueck, and Remsede is just 13 miles due south. In modern West Germany, the country is divided into States, similar to our division in America. Remsde is in the state known as Lower Saxony. The pictures in this chapter show you: 1) The picture of the little village 2) A composite of four buildings in the town 3) A picture of their very famous, ancient church 4) An aerial view of the home, just outside Remsede, of our earliest known relatives. The white portion of the building was the original home, and a portion in dark, has been added in the course of time. "Today the home is no longer in existence. All members of the first family were born and raised in this home. One of the most unique buildings in Remsede is the little parish church, under the patronage of St. Augustine. In 1935 they celebrated the eleven hundred the year of it counting. What makes it so unique is that is became an official pilgrimage chapel. It is quite authentic, that this altar was built back in the year 734. Many people from as far as Cologne made pilgrimages to this highly indulged chapel. Pictures show its earliest form with the tall, spire, but in recent years a new tower has been built, giving it a different look. The pictures of the village will give you some idea of the lovely, quiet Remsede, in which our early grandparents lived their early lives. Being nestled in this valley-like forest, away from the thoroughfare, it is easy to see that they loved its quiet and peaceful retreat. The Beginning of the Gottschalk Genealogy Since the parish of St. Anthony's at Remsed was a Pilgrimage Chapel over the centuries, all of the church records for both Remsed and Laer, Germany, were kept in the St. Mary's Parish Church records for both Remsede and Laer, Germany, about two and a half miles from Remsede. In these books, which date back three hundred years, the following is written by its pastor: "The oldest entries at Laer, with the family name of "Gottschalk" date back to the year 1794." The very first parents found in that area were: Anton Gottschalk and A. Catherina Leinker There is no record of where they came from, or who their forebearers were. They simply appeared suddenly, with the baptism of their son, Bernhard Heinrich Gottschalk Who is the ancestor of all the Gottschalk’s mentioned in this book. Whether or not they had other children is unknown.

HEINRICH CLEMENS AUGUST GOTTSCHALK was the eleventh child born of the union to Bernard and Anna Maria (Hagedown) Gottschalk, of Remsede, Germany. Of the five boys who survived birth and were married, August Gottschalk was the only one to remain in Germany. He inherited the home where the family was born and raiseDIED He most likely had military service in the German army, and when he retired from that, he took up the trade of farmer, village official and father. In the earlier years after the brothers separated, there was some communication between August and those in the United States. Unfortunately it did not continue, so that the only information remaining to us in the United States was the fact that there were relatives in Germany. Fortunately, Father Timothy succeeded in making contact with them, and as a result we have the complete record of the first family in our genealogy.

In the family record, kept in the Family Bible of Bernard Henry Gottschalk, the name Mary Regina Gottschalk does appear, born on the same date as that of Mary Regina Gottschalk. Anna Maria, however, died on October 1, 180, and Mary Regina lived a long married life. The Grandchildren of Mary Regina insist that she belongs to the family of Bernard Henry Gottschalk, but we cannot find her baptismal certificate. We have accepted the word of the grandchildren, and concluded that Anna Maria and Mary Regina Gottschalk were twins.

WILLIAM FRANCIS GOTTSCHALK William Francis Gottschalk was just called “Frank.” He was the third of the large family of Bernard Henry Gottschalk to arrive at the marriageable age. The mortality in this family was very high, with only five of fourteen children reaching marriage age. Frank was a twin, though they never bore such a close resemblance to each other, and in personality, they were far different. His twin brother was called “Barney.” Frank was a quiet person and living in Pittsburg, Pa., he spent some time working in the Steel Plant of the United Engineering Co. How long he worked there is not certain, but at one time in his life, he took up painting houses and all that goes with it. He died at a comparatively early age, and it is said, he died of painter’s cholic.

Barney had a small family of three children. He was very sure of this own judgments. “This was due in large part from being a Mill foreman.

JOSEPH MICHAEL GOTTSCHALK Joseph Michael Gottschalk was just plain “Joe” around Lawrence, Pa., where he spent most of his life. He ended up living in the home of his Fathere, where he raised a family of ten children. There never was any fancy in his home, or in his life. He was a hard worker in the steel mills, employed 40 years in the Frank Keelang Plant of the United Engineering Co. They worked hard and were dirty and black, then came home and enjoyed a beer. That was their life. There was not much to distract from their life, except their children. He had a family of 10 children and he was close to theMARRIED One can guess how he understood them, or talked their language, when you heard the names he used to call them, instead of their Christian names. Here are some samples: “Tweedle,” “Bebble”, “Jinx”, and “Tump.” William Gottschalk "Willie" Gottschalk was what they called him in Schoenchen, KS. He was the third oldest of George Henry Gottschalk, and was born in Pittsburg, Pa., and was baptized in the St. Agnes Chruch; in West Mifflin, PA. He married Anna Munsch in 1900. Willie was always a farmer, and a ver good one. He farmed 5 miles south east of Schoenchen. He also owned a house in Schoenchen, as did many of his people there, for Sundays, and winters. He was a very exact and meticulous farmer, making his children cultivate and plow the fields "just so." He raised 13 children, which was more or less the custom, besides that it was economically sound, because a large family meant good help with the farm work. He, as did his brothers, sang on the choir, and joined in with the Sunday "good times." Willie was on the board of directors of the Farmers Coop in his day, and took a great interest in the community farming projects.

DEDICATION To all our parents , grandparents, who inspired us with their courage and good example, and above all, who kept our religious heritage in highest esteem, we dedicate this volume, so as an humble return of our love and gratitude.
LEGEND OF SIGNS AND SYMBOLS 1) In This book, every name is followed by a date, which always signifies the date of birth. 2) 2) Within each of the 5 main branches, each child will be given its own special serial number, which will also be used to identify the child and sits spouse when they are listed as a family. All married persons can thus be traced back to the family which they were born. 3) 3) 00=this sign indicates “double rings” and is a symbol of marriage. 4) 4) ==this cross, following a name, indicated that they are deceased, and the date following, when available, and tells of the date of death. FOREWARD With the celebration of the Bi-Centennial year of our Country, many documents and date have come alive, to awaken in the minds of our American citizens how rich their heritage over the the past two hundred years has been. It makes people more proud of their Country, and spurs them on to learning more about its history. In the same spirit, many family histories have appeared in print in recent years to motivate, to remind the present generation and those yet to come, just wo their ancestors were, from where they originated and what kind of people their forefathers really were. It has been a matter of great curiosity for me over a span of years, to wish for a clearer picture of our own Gottschalk relationship. For many years my relives have suggested that somebody should make this research! It is difficult for me to understand how George Henry Gottschalk (188 to 1917), with his education and years of teaching, never thought to set to writing the history of his family, together with the migration of his three brothers and himself over to America. , beginning with the year 1867. The written documents and information anof those years in our relationship were, to say the least very meager. Over the last fifteen years, this feeling of curiosity that possessed me became a determined desire to find an answer. It became clearer to me, that if there was to be a Family Tree Record, I had better take the task in hand now. Being inexperienced in this type of work the beginnings were naturally difficult and disheartening, because I could not find sources of information about whether there were relatives of our Grandparents will living in Germany, and if so, what was their present address. Without this first step, I knew there would be no adequate “Family Story”. At least three or four persons going to Germany had promised me an honest search in the area of Osnabrueck, but it always ended in failure. In May of 1973, I met a man in Victoria, Kansas, named Mr. Heinrich Witteman, whose wife was a nice to Fr. Jordon Hammel, Capuchin. This gentleman was from Mannheim, Germany, working in the Police Department. He listened to my story of frustrations, and then made me a solemann promise to make a thorough search in the Remsede, Germany, area, where our grandparents were born and raiseDIED This was in May. His promise was” You will hear from me,” Nothing happened for eight months, and I thought it would end in the usual failure. Suddenly in January a letter arrived from Germany, telling me that Mr. Witteman had located a living relatiutiveve in that area, named Elizabeth Gottschalk, age 74 years, together with her address. I wasted no time writing alerter to her, explaining my projected Family Tree. Very quickly, Elizabeth Gottschalk’s married daughter, Hedwig Holtmeier, answered my letter, assuring me that her grandparent and pours were truly brothers. The rest of the history is in the first portion of our genealogy, Mrs. Holtmeir very graciously got all possible records from the old parish church, and whose records date back three hundred years. Through her efforts we have all the information from the home of our grandparents that was possible to finDIED It remained bow only to gather the information of the relatives in Pittsburg, Pa., and the Kansas area, which make up the contents of these books.
THE NAME “Gottschalk” HAS A VERY ANCIENT AND INTERESTING ORIGIN. Because OF ITS CENTURIES OF USE AND ABUSE. It is not too surprising to find that ITS CORRECT SPELLING MAY BE DIFFICULT TO ESTABLISH. It contains two words: “Gott” and “Schalk.” The word Gott obviously means Gods. The problem arises with the second word “Schalk.” This is the crucial word, In old English writings, this word appeaed with precisely the same spelling as in the family name, and it meant simply “servant.” Men, who worked in the service of royalty or people of greater means and wealth, were called “Schalks. This word was taken fover into the early German language with the same meaning of servant. In later years, the meaning of Schalk grew to take the meaning of a mischievous fellow. In very early centuries in Germany, the name Gottschalk appeared as a family name, meaning very simply “God’s servant.” Through the centuries, this name took on many variations in spelling, due to doubt, to the fact that names were carelessly written as they sounded, or the fact that many people simply could not spell their name correctly. The word “Gott” alone, sometimes appears as “Got.” “God,” “Gad,” “Cut,” or “Gat.” The second wor5d, “Schalk” appears in many more variations, for example,” “Schlat,” “Schall,” “Schalck,” or Shalk.” It you join these two words in all their possible variations; you can understand why the family name took on endless variety of spellings. It might be of interest to mention some people in early history bore this name. 1. Gottschalk of Orbits, who lived from 803 to 869, a Benedictine monk and theologian. He defected from the Catholic Church mainly because of his false teachings on the doctrine of Predestination.
2. Gottschalk of Limburg, Germany. He lived from 1010 to 1098. He was a poet.
3. HISOTRY OF THE GOTTSCHAL NAME AND COAT OF ARMS THE REMSEDE AREA Remsede is a small village, which is situated in the northern section of Germany, at the end of the Teutoburg forest, surrounded on both sides at the base of a series of low foot hills. The big city of Osnabrueck is just 13 miles to the north, a city of about 150,000 inhabitants. Remsede was always a rather small rural village, and at the present time there are only about 800 inhabitants. It is a lush farm area which is set back from any heavy highway traffic. Up until a few years ago, Remsede was an independent town, but in recent years they joined three little villages under one mayor. The area is now called Laer-Remsede. The two little towns are about two miles apart. In earlier 1800, the address for Remsede inhabitants was written in this way: Kingdom of Hannover, Principality of Osbabrueck, and town of Remsede. Hence you see that Remsede used to belong to the Kingdom of Hannover, not the town of Hannover. This led some of our relatives to say that our ancestry was from Hannover, Germany, which was not too accurate. The nearest large city, Osbabrueck, is just 13 miles to the north. Most of their business, advanced schooling, and other needs, were taken care of in this large city. On the map of Germany, just look for Osnabrueck, and Remsede is just 13 miles due south. In modern West Germany, the country is divided into States, similar to our division in America. Remsde is in the state known as Lower Saxony. The pictures in this chapter show you: 1) The picture of the little village 2) A composite of four buildings in the town 3) A picture of their very famous, ancient church 4) An aerial view of the home, just outside Remsede, of our earliest known relatives. The white portion of the building was the original home, and a portion in dark, has been added in the course of time. "Today the home is no longer in existence. All members of the first family were born and raised in this home. One of the most unique buildings in Remsede is the little parish church, under the patronage of St. Augustine. In 1935 they celebrated the eleven hundred the year of it counting. What makes it so unique is that is became an official pilgrimage chapel. It is quite authentic, that this altar was built back in the year 734. Many people from as far as Cologne made pilgrimages to this highly indulged chapel. Pictures show its earliest form with the tall, spire, but in recent years a new tower has been built, giving it a different look. The pictures of the village will give you some idea of the lovely, quiet Remsede, in which our early grandparents lived their early lives. Being nestled in this valley-like forest, away from the thoroughfare, it is easy to see that they loved its quiet and peaceful retreat. The Beginning of the Gottschalk Genealogy Since the parish of St. Anthony's at Remsed was a Pilgrimage Chapel over the centuries, all of the church records for both Remsed and Laer, Germany, were kept in the St. Mary's Parish Church records for both Remsede and Laer, Germany, about two and a half miles from Remsede. In these books, which date back three hundred years, the following is written by its pastor: "The oldest entries at Laer, with the family name of "Gottschalk" date back to the year 1794." The very first parents found in that area were: Anton Gottschalk and A. Catherina Leinker There is no record of where they came from, or who their forebearers were. They simply appeared suddenly, with the baptism of their son, Bernhard Heinrich Gottschalk Who is the ancestor of all the Gottschalk’s mentioned in this book. Whether or not they had other children is unknown. Bernhard Heinrich Gottschalk

HEINRICH CLEMENS AUGUST GOTTSCHALK was the eleventh child born of the union to Bernard and Anna Maria (Hagedown) Gottschalk, of Remsede, Germany. Of the five boys who survived birth and were married, August Gottschalk was the only one to remain in Germany. He inherited the home where the family was born and raiseDIED He most likely had military service in the German army, and when he retired from that, he took up the trade of farmer, village official and father. In the earlier years after the brothers separated, there was some communication between August and those in the United States. Unfortunately it did not continue, so that the only information remaining to us in the United States was the fact that there were relatives in Germany. Fortunately, Father Timothy succeeded in making contact with them, and as a result we have the complete record of the first family in our genealogy.

BERNARD HEINRICH GOTTSCHALK was the oldest of the four boys who came to America August 17, 1867. Also it states that he was married in Breese, Illinois, Nov. 28, 1867. We have a strong suspicion that he came alone, and that the other brothers followed later. Before leaving his home stead, his records tell of his freely enlisting in 1st K.DIEDR. (A German army regiment) of the Hannover Germany Government. This enlistment lasted from 1855 to 1856. Shortly thereafter, he set sails to America. Not too long after his marriage in Breese, Ill., he came to Pittsburg, Pa., where he finally made his permanent home, and raised a large family of 14 children. Unfortunately, so many of the children died in early age, or infancy. His msut have been a distressing life, since only five of the large family became of arraigeable age, and did marry. He did visit his brother George Henry in Schoenchen, Kansas once. They also correspeonded very much by mail and their letter were very lengthy and of a a very spiritual nature.

In the family record, kept in the Family Bible of Bernard Henry Gottschalk, the name Mary Regina Gottschalk does appear, born on the same date as that of Mary Regina Gottschalk. Anna Maria, however, died on October 1, 180, and Mary Regina lived a long married life. The Grandchildren of Mary Regina insist that she belongs to the family of Bernard Henry Gottschalk, but we cannot find her baptismal certificate. We have accepted the word of the grandchildren, and concluded that Anna Maria and Mary Regina Gottschalk were twins.

Frank was a twin, though they never bore such a close resemblance to each other, and in personality, they were far different. His twin brother was called “Barney.” Frank was a quiet person and living in Pittsburg, Pa., he spent some time working in the Steel Plant of the United Engineering Co. How long he worked there is not certain, but at one time in his life, he took up painting houses and all that goes with it. He died at a comparatively early age, and it is said, he died of painter’s cholic. 9.

FAMILY OF CASPER BERNARD GOTTSCHALK Casper Bernard Gottschalk, the second part of the twin combination was called “Barney.” Barney was also associated with the Steel Mills, working in the United Engineering Co., the Frank Keelang Plant, but he was a foreman. As a result, he was financially a little more comfortable. His home was in Sharpsburg, Pa. He was quite a mechanic, and he is remembered as having an auto in the 1920’s, a Harry C. Stutz Special. Barney had a small family of three children. He was very sure of this own judgments. “This was due in large part from being a Mill foreman.

JOSEPH MICHAEL GOTTSCHALK Joseph Michael Gottschalk was just plain “Joe” around Lawrence, Pa., where he spent most of his life. He ended up living in the home of his Father, where he raised a family of ten children. There never was any fancy in his home, or in his life. He was a hard worker in the steel mills, employed 40 years in the Frank Keelang Plant of the United Engineering Co. They worked hard and were dirty and black, then came home and enjoyed a beer. That was their life. There was not much to distract from their life, except their children. He had a family of 10 children and he was close to theMARRIED One can guess how he understood them, or talked their language, when you heard the names he used to call them, instead of their Christian names. Here are some samples: “Tweedle,” “Bebble”, “Jinx”, and “Tump.” William Gottschalk "Willie" Gottschalk was what they called him in Schoenchen, KS. He was the third oldest of George Henry Gottschalk, and was born in Pittsburg, Pa., and was baptized in the St. Agnes Chruch; in West Mifflin, PA. He married Anna Munsch in 1900. Willie was always a farmer, and a ver good one. He farmed 5 miles south east of Schoenchen. He also owned a house in Schoenchen, as did many of his people there, for Sundays, and winters. He was a very exact and meticulous farmer, making his children cultivate and plow the fields "just so." He raised 13 children, which was more or less the custom, besides that it was economically sound, because a large family meant good help with the farm work. He, as did his brothers, sang on the choir, and joined in with the Sunday "good times." Willie was on the board of directors of the Farmers Coop in his day, and took a great interest in the community farming projects. 3.

ANDREW GOTTSCHALK. Without doubt Andrew Gottschalk is one of the most widely known men of Adams County. His business and personal interests have been identified with the town of Berne almost from its establishment, and through his business and participation in business affairs he has been one of the constructive forces in the growth and development of that community. Mr. Gottschalk is a former county treasurer, and viewed from whatever angle his life presents many achievements which reject honor upon the name.
While he is himself a native of Indiana, he belongs to a long line of German ancestors of the Kingdom of Wuertemberg. A professor in a Pennsylvania college as a result of much research has established the fact that this branch of the Gottschalks has a continuous history in Wuertemberg for fully a thousand years. Mr. Gottschalk's grandfather Andrew was a tiller of the soil and spent all his life in Wuertemberg. The family was Lutherans. The grandfather had six children, three sons and three daughters. All of them came to the United States. The oldest was Jacob Gottschalk, who was born October 15, 1808. His first wife died in Germany, leaving two children, Barbara and Mary, the former now deceased, and the latter the widow of John Shigley, living at Berne. For his second wife Jacob Gottschalk married Christina Fox, who was also born in Wuertemberg. Their oldest child, George, was born in that country. In 1845 Jacob Gottschalk and his little family consisting of his wife, their one child and his two older children, set sail from Havro, France, and after ninety-three days on the ocean landed in New York City. They first located in Montgomery County, Ohio, where three other children were born. The oldest of these, Sarah, is now a widow, Mrs. Betzner, living in Miami County, Indiana. Michael is a resident of Wells County, Indiana, and has a family. John died after his marriage in Fulton County, Indiana, and left sons and daughters.
Towards the close of the decade of the '40s the Gottschalk family came over the rough roads and through the woods into Wells County, Indiana, locating on a farm in Nottingham Township, where the industry of Jacob Gottschalk cleared up about eighty acres. He lived there as an industrious and competent farmer until his death on January 26, 1877. His wife died in 1855. He was a democrat and both were active members of the Evangelical Association. Several other children were born to them after they moved to Wells County. Mathias is now a farmer in Miami County and is married and has a family. Jacob, Jr., died in childhood in Wells County. The next in age is Andrew. Fred R. lived for many years on the old homestead in Wells County, where he died January 26, 1907, just thirty years to the day after his father's death. He was then forty-nine years of age and left a family of children. Noah, the youngest child, still lives on a part of the old homestead in Wells County and is married and has a family. Mr. Andrew Gottschalk was born on a farm in Nottingham Township of Wells County, November 13, 1850. He was only five years old when his mother dieDIED His father afterwards married Mrs. Elizabeth Walters ShepherDIED She was a native of Germany and by her first marriage had two sons and by her marriage to Jacob Gottschalk was the mother of five. One of these second children, Amanda, now makes her home with Mr. Andrew Gottschalk.
Andrew Gottschalk grew up on his father's farm was educated in the district and private schools of his native county and his first occupation away from the farm was teaching in his home township. He followed that occupation for about two years. Besides the local schools he attended a normal school at Bluffton.
On May 7, 1872, Mr. Gottschalk moved to Linn Grove in Adams County, and there went to work as a druggist. A few months later he formed a partnership with Mr. Peter Hoffman under the name of Hoffman & Gottschalk. Mr. Hoffman took the business at Linn Grove, while in November, 1872, Mr. Gottschalk came to Berne, which was then just an incipient village, possessing only two general stores and a blacksmith shop and saloon. The railroad had passed through this section of Adams County in the summer of 1871. Their pioneer drug enterprise was established in a small building east of the railroad, where the office of the Berne Lumber Company was later establisheDIED Mr. Gottschalk began selling drugs from that site on November 12, 1872. On July 1, 1874, they moved the stock into a new building, and in September, 1907, the partnership was dissolved, Mr. Gottschalk becoming sole proprietor of the store at Berne. In 1912 he supplanted his old business house by the erection of a fine block 22 by 80 feet, two stories and basement, but on the same lot which he has occupied since July, 1874. Here he is proprietor of one of the best equipped and stocked stores of its kind in Adams County. Mr. Gottschalk is a licensed pharmacist, having received his certificate as a result of many years' practical experience.
All of his early contemporaries in business at Berne have since died or retired, and he is now the oldest business man in the town and has one of the oldest stores in the county. As a business man he has been very popular as well as successful and has made his store a center of the social life of the community. Mr. Gottschalk is a director of the Bank of Berne.
Early in life he became a local leader in the Democratic Party. From 1877 to 1883 he was postmaster of Berne, and from 1880 to 1882 was local justice of the peace. He was a member of the Democratic Central Committee of the county from 1882 to 1884, and in the latter year was a delegate to the Democratic State Convention at Indianapolis. In 1884 Indiana was one of the two states that decided Mr. Cleveland's election, and Mr. Gottschalk thus had more than local prominence in the election of the first democratic president from the time of the Civil war. He was also on the county ticket the same year, and was elected treasurer, moving to Decatur in September, 1885, to assume the duties of that office. He was re-elected in 1886 and served two terms. Among other offices he has been trustee of Monroe Township, for many years was notary public and has been especially influential among the English speaking people of the southern half of Adams County. It is said that his services have been in demand more than those of anyone else in advising people in matters of business transactions, in the drawing up of wills and the settling up of estates.
On May 9, 1875, in Shelby County, Ohio, Mr. Gottschalk married Miss Laura Sheets. She was born in Texas January 22, 1852, daughter of Philip and Cornelia (Monger) Sheets, both natives of Germany. At the time of her birth her father was a regular soldier in the United States Army, stationed near San Antonio, Texas, guarding the frontier against Indian troubles. When the War of the Rebellion broke out in 1861 he was at San Antonio, and was offered the privilege of remaining with the Confederate forces or going north. He chose the northern side, and going to Shelby County, Ohio, enlisted with an Ohio regiment and was all through the Civil war. He died in Shelby County October 1, 1882, and his widow passed away in 1889 at the home of her daughter in Berne. Mrs. Gottschalk's mother was a Catholic. Mrs. Gottschalk was a devoted wife and mother and was the type of woman whose presence is greatly missed in any community. She died at Berne January 11, 1910. Mr. Gottschalk has long been prominent in the Evangelical Association, has been an official member of his church, class leader and superintendent of the Sunday school. And otherwise interested in every moral and religious influence in his home community.
Mr. and Mrs. Gottschalk had five children. The second, Oliver E., died May 15, 1883, when about four and a half years of age. The oldest, Cora BORN, is a graduate of the State Normal School at Terre Haute, was a successful teacher in her home county for several years, also taught at Anderson, and is now the wife of Hon. Benjamin F. Welty. Mr. Welty is a graduate of the Law School of Michigan University and is now a special attorney at Lima, Ohio, and congressman from the Fourth Ohio District. Mr. and Mrs. Welty have one daughter, Gene G. Thurman A. Gottschalk, the oldest son, was educated in the Berne High School, in an institution of higher education at Naperville, Illinois, and also in Indiana University. He lives near Berne and by his marriage to Nellie Simison has two children, John R. and Elizabeth L., both now in school. Wilda MARRIED is a graduate of the Blaker School of Indianapolis and is now the wife of E. K. Shally of Berne. They have two children, Marcelle G. and Andrew DIED The youngest of the children is True Palmer, who graduated from the Berne High School in 1912, later from Heidelberg College at Tiffin, Ohio, and had entered upon a successful career as a teacher when he resigned to enlist in the National Army. He is now in the Medical Corps of the Nineteenth Field Artillery, located at Fort Sam Houston, San Antonio, Texas.
Mr. Andrew Gottschalk is a past chancellor of Berne Lodge of Knights of Pythias, and represented his district in the Grand Lodge at Indianapolis in 1900. He is a charter member of the Knights of Pythias.

The founders of MUNJOR were part of the largest single expedition of Unsere Leute to emigrate from Russia. Under the leadership of Bathasar BRUNGARDT 108 families left Saratov by train on July 8, 1876. Their body consisted of departures from Herzog, Obermonjour, Louis, Graf, Wittman, Marienthal, Schoenchen, and Gattung. The group separated at Eydtkuhnen, with the MUNJOR founders among these electing to sail via the Hamburg-American line. Arriving in New York, they then proceeded by train to Herzog. After remaining there several days, they repaired to a site on Big Creek a short distance north of the present village of MUNJOR. Some two months later they moved to the present townsite in Section 25, Town ship 14, Range 18 in Wheatland Township.
On November 1, 1876 an additional group came to MUNJOR. They had emigrated from Saratov on September 30 and sailed from Hamburg-American line. This body consisted of the following families

The MUNJOR settlers were poor people, as were most of the Volga-Germans in the other local settlements. Their first residences were simple sod house.
In 1876 they purchased Section 25 and organized MUNJOR Land Company. This creation lacked legal status and was succeeded by a corporate entity, the MUNJOR land and Grazing Company, which was chartered about October 11, 1882 at the suggestions of John Schyler, an advisor and benefactor for the early MUNJOR pioneers. Part of the section was surveyed by G.R. Wolf for the town site. Each lot owner was a member of the grazing use by all members. The charter provided for a 50-year life, a five-man board of directors with a president, secretary, and treasurer. The original capitalization called for $10,000 divided into 200 shares of $50 each. No interest in the company land holdings could be mortgaged, sold, or transferred without the consent of two-thirds of the membership.
From the beginning this corporate creation experienced serious difficulties. The southern half of the section was sold on August 15, 1888. Controversy became so intense it pilled over into court litigation. In January, 1899 deeds were issued for the town lots only. This company’s internal conflicts split the community into two major factions. Peace was restored only after its dissolution.
The founders wasted little time in arrangements for church services. They also prayed around a homemade cross under the open sky, but as early as 1877 succeeded in erecting a small 20 x 40 foot frame structure for church use. Rev. Fr. Valentine Sommereisen said mass in this building once a month. The Capuchins came in 1878 and have been in charge of the parish since then. Within a few years the parish added 16 feet to the original church. In 1889 this structure was replaced by the present stone church building.
TRADITIONS OBERMONJOUr in RUSSIA was founded in 1766. It was located on the valley side of the Volga, the first village north of Katherinestaadt. According to an account by Victor LEIKER, a New Jersey Journalist and a native of MUNJOR, Kansas in the AHSGR Work Paper No., 5, Feborn 1972, the town in RUSSIA was named after a Frenchman named MUNJOR, a land agent for Catherine the Great. Eventually the town had a population of 3,000. Mr. LEIKER says that a young OBERMONJOUr lad who survived Siberia and was able to visit the Volga a few years ago, wrote his uncle in Germany as follows: "I could not even find where our village had been. It is as though nature has returned the land to the plains as they once were, without a tree, or a smokestack or a road or even a rusty pipe marking the village we loved so much."
In 1876 the following families founded MUNJOR in Kansas. BEFORT; BINDER; DECHANT; DOEFLER; Eberle; ENGEL; Gabel; Graf; GROSS; Herl; HERTEL; Klaus; Korbe; KRANNAWITTER; Lieker; PFANNENSTIEL; Miller; Riedel; ROHR; Ruder; Rupp; SCHUMACHER; Schreibvogel; Stoecklein; Unrein; Urban; Wasinger; Yunker; GOETZ.
Not all of the founders of MUNJOR, Kansas came from Obermounjour in RUSSIA. Some came from Wittman, Schoenchen, Marienthal, and Herzog on the Volga. The Grabbe family came directly from Germany.
Peter LEIKER of OBERMONJOUr was ONE of the FIVE explorers who came to America in 1876 to look for a suitable place to settle.

TRADITIONS OBERMONJOUR in RUSSIA was founded in 1766. It was located on the valley side of the Volga, the first village north of Katherinestadt. According to an account by Victor LEIKER, a New Jersey Journalist and a native of MUNJOR, Kansas in the AHSGR Work Paper No., 5, Feb 1972, the town in RUSSIA was named after a Frenchman named MUNJOR, a land agent for Catherine the Great. Eventually the town had a population of 3,000. Mr. LEIKER says that a young OBERMONJOUR lad who survived Siberia and was able to visit the Volga a few years ago, wrote his uncle in Germany as follows: "I could not even find where our village had been. It is as though nature has returned the land to the plains as they once were, without a tree, or a smokestack or a road or even a rusty pipe marking the village we loved so much."
In 1876 the following families founded MUNJOR in Kansas. BEFORT; BINDER; DECHANT; DOEFLER; Eberle; ENGEL; Gabel; Graf; GROSS; Herl; HERTEL; Klaus; Korbe; KRANNAWITTER; Lieker; PFANNENSTIEL; Miller; Riedel; ROHR; Ruder; Rupp; SCHUMACHER; Schreibvogel; Stoecklein; Unrein; Urban; Wasinger; Yunker; GOETZ.
Not all of the founders of MUNJOR, Kansas came from Obermounjour in RUSSIA. Some came from Wittman, Schoenchen, Marienthal, and Herzog on the Volga. The Grabbe family came directly from Germany.
Peter LEIKER of OBERMONJOUr was ONE of the FIVE explorers who came to America in 1876 to look for a suitable place to settle.

The Descendants of Heinrich & Kunigunde (Doerfler) Befort
Our forefathers who left Germany to go to Russia to make a better life for themselves and their children. It is dedicated as well to our brave forefathers who left Russia to make a better life for themselves and their children in the United States. It is especially dedicated to those of our relatives who stayed in Russia and endured over fifty years exiled in prison work camps for their crime of being of German ancestry.
Forward
Many books and papers about other Volga German families and their descendants, have been published over the last fifty years, and are treasured documents for not only the serious researcher, but also those with a passing interest as well. This book is one the descendants of one Befort family that left Germany to go to Russia. While every effort has been made in this compilation to provide accurate and complete information, endeavors to acquire additional facts and details from both the United States and European sources continue. Any omission of person (s), places, or events that deserve inclusion herein is purely unintentional.
The founders of Munjor were part of the largest single expedition of Unsere Leute to emigrate from Russia. Under the leadership of Balthasar Brungardt 108 families left saratov by train on July 8, 1876. Their body consisted of departures from Herzog, Obermonjour, Louis, Graf, Wittman, Marienthal, Schoenchen, and Gattung. The group separated at Eydtkunen, with the Munjor founders among those electing to sail via the Hamburg-American line. Arriving in New York, they then proceeded by train to Herzog. After remaining there several days, they repaired a site on Big Creek a short distance north of the present village of Munjor. Some two months later they moved to the present town site in Section 25, Township 14, and Range 18 in Wheatland Township.
On November 1, 1876 an additional group came to Munjor. They had emigrated from Saratov on September 30 and sailed from Hamburg on the "Gellert" of the Hamburg of the Hamburg-American line. This body consisted of the following families: Among them were Conrad Befort and his wife Anna Margaretha and their children Peter, and Paulina.

Notes for Conrad Befort: Came to the U.S. in 1876
This book is the end result of years of research into the origin and dispersal of the KRANNAWITTER family. This INTRODUCTION contains a brief description of the TWELVE chapters and TWO final sections of this book.
Within each chapter, in the even that any information was obtained from published material or from correspondence with official agencies, the particular source is cited Much of the data used in this genealogical report was also taken from personal letters and family records; these sources, too, are duly cited All of the sources used to compile this book, including those not specifically cited within the chapters, aware recorded in the bibliographic list at the end of the book.
The author wishes to express her sincere gratitude to all the people who made this report possible. Any omissions or mistakes are unintentional. Special care has been given to citing all the people responsible for the compilation of this work.
The members of the KRANNAWITTER, KRONEWITTer/Kronwitter/KRONEWITT/Kranewitter families that came to America from the Volga-German colonies in RUSSIA were among thousands of ethnic Germans from RUSSIA who emigrated in search of freedom from 1875 up to the time of the Russian Revolution. The variant spellings of the KRANNAWITTER surname evolved as family members who had moved to different parts of North and South America gradually lost contact with each other.
In the earliest RUSSIAn records, the name was spelled KRANNAWITTER. All the American spellings that eventually developed differed slightly from this original version. Later in this introduction, more atTENtion will be given to the subject of the dispersal of this family and different spellings that ensueDIED For the make of simplicity, in this report the surname will be referred to generically as KRANNAWITTER unless a specific family with an alternative spelling is being discussed Evidence seems to indicate, although not incontrovertibly, that the KRANNAWITTER family that migrated to the Volga colonies of RUSSIA originated in Wiesbach, a small German village in lowered Bavaria situated about 50 miles northeast of Munich. (See figure 29.) Chapter ONE of this book, WIESBACH, LOWER BAVARIA< GERMANY; THE PROBABLE PLACE OF ORIGIN OF THE VOLGA-GERMAN IMMIGRANT JOHANNES KRANNEWITTER (1731-EA. 1782), ANALYZES THE RESEARCH that led to this TENtative conclusion (Pleve 1998).
According to records contained in Catholic parish archives in Germany, Adam Kronawitter and his wife Anna _______-were parents of Michael Gronawitter (the surname was spelled differently even in the same baptismal entry.), baptized 3 MAY, 1731, at the church serving the parish of Obertrennbach, where Weisbach was locateDIED The entry stated that Adam Kronawitter was a dragONEt in the army (presumably the Bavarian army) and had been statiONEd at Mitterfels, a town about 40 miles north of Weisbach and about 20 miles east of the city of Regensburg (Mai (Dr. Paul) 1998). The Catholic archives referred to aware the only sauce of records of so early date in Germany.
Johannes Krannewitter was the name of the man who migrated from Germany to RUSSIA, as listed in the roster of the original settlers of the Volga-German colony of OBERMONJOU, where he settled in 1767. Upon arrival at the colony on AUGUST, 1767, he stated that he was 36 years of age, that he was a Catholic, that he was from Weisbach (Germany), and that he was a baker by trade. Anna _______-, his wife, was 29 years of age (Pleve 1998).
The author corresponded with the directors of the diocesan archives that house Catholic parish records were the only records kept in these towns in the early years. The only Weisbach that had records of any KRANNAWITTER (or any other similar spelling of that surname) families living in close proximity was the village mentiONEd above.
Michael Gronawitter, baptized in 1731--according to records in Weisbach, Lower Bavaria--would have been 36 in 1767, as Johannes Krannewitter indicated that he was when he settled in OBERMONJOU in 1767. In German naming practice at the time of Johannes Krannewitter's migration, men were ofTEN given TWO names and would refer to themselves in official documents by either or both of these names. It is highly plausible that Johannes and Michael were ONE and the same. Johannes Michael was a common given-name combination. Since the Catholic Church in OBERMONJOU available for that early a date, it is impossible to verify this claim using those sources (Pleve 1999). Only circumstantial evidence can be used to provide further support for the assumption that Johannes and Michael was the same person. Particularly
relevant is the fact that the information about Johannes Krannewiter's place or origin was extracted from the list of the first settlers of OBERMONJOU (PLeve 1998).
The place of origin was extracted from the list of the first settlers of OBERMONJOU (Pleve 1998). The place of origin named in this source is by and large more specific and more reliable than that listed in the other principal source of information about the early German migrants to the Volga colonies; the Ivan Kuhlberg records, which were ship passenger lists prepared in 1766 when the first-settlers list is usually the place of birth, which makes it easier to find a connection in Germany (Schmidt 1998).
At any rate, thanks to early RUSSIAn census records an unbroken line can be traced from Johannes and Anna Krannewitter to most of the families descended from theMARRIED Dr. Igor Pleve, who is on the faculty of Saratov State University and is an expert in Volga-German research, and the American Historical Society of Germans from RUSSIA (AHSGR) based in Lincoln, Nebraska, have been instrumental in providing information drawn from these early censuses. The AHSGR has published 1798 census data for OBERMONJOU and for the other Volga-German colonies (Rye 1995; Pleve 1998). Chapter TWO of this book, EARLY VOLGA-GERMAN RECORDS USED IN THIS GENEOLOGICAL REPORT, focuses on FOUR early sources that were referred to during the research process; and it summarizes the information taken from these records. Later censuses, or "revision lists" of earlier enumerations, were taken in the years 1816, 1834, and 1850 (Mai (Brent) 1998; Pleve 1998; Rye 1995; LEIKER 1999; Rupp 1999). From this RUSSIAn data and from death, census, church, family, and other records of family members who later moved to America, pedigree charts have been made fro THREE related OBERMONJOU families; KRANNAWITTER, DECHANT, and BRULL; these charts are included in Chapter TWO (See figures 1, 2, and 3).
A genealogical profile of KRANNAWITTER families living in the U.S., Canada, Argentina, RUSSIA, Kazakhstan, and Germany who aware descended from Johannes and Anna Elizabeta Krannewitter is contained in CHAPTER THREE,,AN ELEVEN-GENERATION REGISTER OF SOME OF THE DESCENDANTS OF JOHANNES AND ANNA ELISABETA (SATTLER) KRANNEWITTER. This chapter consists of a computer-generated report of ELEVEN generations. All the sources used to compile this data aware included in the bibliographic list. Many of the families are traced through only a few generations.
Before discussing any more of the conTENt of the book, the author would like to present an abbreviated history of the Volga German colonies and in this way provide a historical backdrop for the benefit of the reader. The information which follows was taken from TWO excellent books writTEN about the Volga-German colonies: Wir Wollen Deutsche Bleiben, by George J. Walters, 1982; and The German Colonies on the Lower Volga, by Gottlieb Beratz, 1914, translated by Leona W. Pfeifer, Lavern J. Ripley, and Dona Reeves-Marquardt, edited by Adam Giesinger, all of whom worked in cooperation with the AHSGR (Walters 1982; Beratz 1914).
The ancestors of the Volga Germans were among an estimated 27, 000 Western Europeans, primarily Germans, who migrated to RUSSIA from 1764 to 1767 upon the invitation of the RUSSIAn empress Catherine II, better known as Catherine the Great. The Catholic settlement of OBERMONJOU, which was the home of all the KRANNAWITTER families that later migrated to America, was ONE of 104 Mother Colonies--32 Catholic and 72 Protestant--established by these immigrants on both sides of the lower Volga River.
OBERMONJOU was ONE of 27 colonies founded in 1766 and 1767 by Chevailer Caneau de Beauregard, a native of Switzerland who directed a French company employed by the RUSSIAn government to recruit colonists. The subdivision in which these 27 colonies were located was called the Fief de Catherine. OBERMONJOU, which was named for the French recruiting agent Otto de MUNJOR, was founded 5 MARCH, 1767, by 82 families, including 160 males and 139 females, for a total of 299 (Stump 1978). OBERMONJOU was located about 40 miles northeast of the city of Sartov and was situated on the east side, or Wiesenseite (meadow side), of the Volga River. (See figure 30.) The west side of the Volga River was known as the Bergseite (hilly side) (Walters 1982; Beratz 1914).
To temp the war-weary farmers, merchants, artisans, and soldiers of Germany and other European countries, Catherine the Great--a German herself--issued official edicts that offered free communal land, paid travel expenses, freedom of religion (as long as the people were Christians), freedom of self-government, and the opportunity to carry on ONE's particulate trade (Walters 1982; Beratz 1914).
Upon arrival in Oranienbaum, a seaport near St. Petersburg, RUSSIA, the colonists--after a difficult land and sea journey from recruiting points in Germany--received the first of many setbacks they would encounter. They were informed by the RUSSIAn Commissar Ivan Kuhlberg, who served as Catherine's official spokesman to the settlers that they would all have to become farmers, regardless of Catherine and her immediate successors. These pan-Slavic circles had grown suspicious and envious of the prosperous Volga Germans, who lost the liberty to rule themselves, to instruct their children in the German language, and to avoid conscription into the RUSSIAn army. The abrogation of these concessions prompted the Volga Germans to take advantage of an escape clause in the second of Catherine's TWO manifestos of invitations: the right to quit RUSSIA at any time after paying a tax on profits made in the empire. ONE of the destinations this time, after careful consideration
and exploration by a group of scouts appointed by the colonists, was North America--specifically the fertile Great Plains of the U.S. Others chose to migrate to South America, where they settled in Brazil and Argentina (Walters 1982).
Typical of the movement was the settlement of Ellis and Rush counties in Kansas, where between THREE and FOUR thousand Catholic Volga Germans eventually located They founded the settlements of Herzog (Victoria), MUNJOR, Katherinestadt, (Catherine), Liebenthal, Schoenchen, and Pfeifer (Walters 1982).
Several KRANNAWITTER families and individuals from OBERMONJOU are known to have migrated to America. The following paragraphs detail the dates of their arrivals, their ultimate destinations, and the different spellings of the surname they utilizeDIED The number in superscript between the immigrant's given name and surname indicate the number of his or her generation of descent from Johannes Krannewitter, the original Volga-German settler. The parentheses after the immigrant's surname enclose a complete list of the names and generation numbers of each of his or her
KRANNAWITTER ancestors leading up to Johannes Krannewitter. This is same pattern will be used throughout this book--except when the type must be single-spaced, in which event brackets will enclose the number of the generation of descent. Chapter THREE, entitled AN ELEVEN-GENERATION REGISTER OF SOME OF THE DESCENDANTS OF JAHANNES KRANNEWITTER AND ANNA ELIZABETA SATTLER, contains a complete description of each KRANNAWITTER immigrant's family.
Brothers Johannes and Raymond KRANNAWITTER both move to the U.S. albeit at different times. Johannes came to ELLIS COUNTY, AND KANSAS, Kansas as single man in 1876. ONE of the original settlers of MUNJOR, Kansas, he later MARRIED Helen LEIKER. Raymond came to ELLIS COUNTY, AND KANSAS 1901 with his second wife Mary Krapp, son John KRANNAWITTER (who was Raymond's son by his first wife Maria Catherine DECHANT--John is the author's grandfather), and daughters Julia and Rosa KRONEWITTer (who were the oldest children of Raymond and Mary). Later, another daughter, Katherine KRONEWITTer, and a son, Joseph KRONEWITTer, were BORN in the U.S. Joseph and his sisters spelled their name KRONEWITTer, as do their descendants today. Raymond's brother Johannes and his family migrated to the U.S. in 1901, they spent a short time in ELLIS COUNTY, AND KANSAS, Kansas; then they, too, moved to New Mexico where Raymond worked with his brother. In 1907, Raymond and his family moved back to ELLIS COUNTY, AND KANSAS and settled near Schoenchen. Many years later, ONE of Johannes' sons, Michael KRANNAWITTER, also moved back to ELLIS COUNTY, AND KANSAS and settled near Severin, located about FIVE miles northwest of Catherine.
Stories
The rest of Johannes' children remained in New Mexico, but he and his wife also eventually returned to ELLIS COUNTY, AND KANSAS where they settled in Hays, the county seat (Pleve 1998; KRANNAWITTER (Michael J. 1993.)
Margareta KRANNAWITTER, widow of Johann LEIKER, moved to MUNJOR, ELLIS COUNTY, AND KANSAS, with her children in 1876. Her son, Peter LEIKER, was ONE of the FIVE scouts sent in 1874 by the Catholic Volga-German colonies to explore the possibilities of establishing settlements in the central plains of the U.S. (Pleve 1998; LEIKER (Victor C. 1976.)
Magdalena Younger, widow of Franz Krannewitter, accompanied her daughter Barbara Krannewitter and Barbara's husband John Pfannnensteil to MUNJOR, Kansas, by 1880. Franz was the brother of Johannes Krannewitter who was the father of Johannes and Raymond KRANNAWITTER, discussed above. (Pleve 1998; Meyer 1976).
Maria Elizabeth Krannewitter (KRONEWITTer) was the sister of Franz and Johannes mentiONEd in the paragraph above. She and her husband John ROHR also moved to MUNJOR by 1880 (Pleve 1998; Meyer 1976).
In 1878, brothers Michael and Joseph Kranewitter--who were brothers of the U.S. immigrants Johannes and Raymond KRANNAWITTER discussed above--migrated to the province of Entrée Rios, Argentina, with their adoptive parents Joseph and Catalina (Unrein) Wendler. They were among the founders of the Volga-German settlement of Marienthal (Valle Maria), located about 25 miles south of the city of Parana (Wendler 1990; Kranewitter (Vicente) 1990). Raphael
Kranewitter--who was probably the brother of Johannes, Raymond, Michael, and Joseph--remained in RUSSIA. His descendents are profiled in Chapter FIVE (Dreher Katharina) 1995).
Adam Kranewitter and his family moved to Valle Maria, Argentina, in 1878. They were also among the founders of that settlement (Pleve 1998; Kranewitter (Vincent) 1990.
Johannes "Weisse" Kranewitter and his wife Margaretha C. LEIKER migrated to Valle Maria in 1880. John Conrad Kranewitter and his family also migrated to Brazil in 1877 and then to Valle Maria in 1880 (PLeve 1998; Kranewitter (Vicente 1990).
Raymond KRONEWITT moved first to ELLIS COUNTY, AND KANSAS, Kansas, in 1902, and later to the Peace River valley of Alberta, Canada, in 1913. Raymond's aunt Anna Maria Krannewitter and her husband John BOOS and their children migrated to ELLIS COUNTY, AND KANSAS in 1892. Raymond KRONEWITT's first cousins Peter and Frank Kronwitter moved to the U.S.--Peter in 1903 and Frank in 1904. Peter and his wife Dorothea BOOS returned to RUSSIA in 1924 and died there. ONE of their daughters Anna Kron (e)witter and her husband John DECHANT moved to the Peace River valley of Alberta in 1915. Peter's brother Frank Kronwitter and his family settled in Pueblo, Colorado. (See Chapter FIVE). (Pleve 1998; Krapp; 1986; DECHANT 1987).
Present-day descendants of the FIVE KRANNAWITTER/Kron(e)witter families who migrated to North America, the SIX Kranewitter families who migrated to South America and TWO of the Kranewitter families stayed in RUSSIA are listed in Chapters FOUR and FIVE.
Chapter FOUR, current listings of related Volga-German families and individuals, as well as the many U.S. families that have variant spellings of the surname and do not have an obvious connection to the Volga-German families. The families are ranked according to the frequency of appearance of each particular spelling in the U.S. telephONE directories or in other U.S. indexes. Also discussed are the areas in the U.S. where there are high concentrations of these families. Various immigration records, the social security Death index, and listings found on the internet were also used to compile this data.
Chapter FIVE, A FOCUS On RELATED KRONEWITT FAMILIES LIVING IN CANADA AND ON RELATED KRAANEWITTER FAMILIES LIVING IN ARGENTINA, RUSSIA, KAZAKHSTAN, AND GERMANY, provides up-to-date listings of the KRONEWITT families in Canada, Kranewitter families in Argentina, and Kranewitter families who chose to remain in what later became the Soviet Union. The information for the American KRONEWITT and Kranewitter descendents came from Internet directories. The information for the RUSSIAn Kranewitter descendants came from private correspondence. These RUSSIAn families underwent terrible ordeals to attain their present positions. Between 1876 and 1914, around 200,000 Volga Germans migrated to Siberia, the U.S. Canada, and countries in South America.
The number of Volga Germans that remained in what later became the Volga German Republic increased to around 600,000 in 1914. In 1912, the population of OBERMONJOU had reached 2,882. By 1926, it had fallen to 2,157, due largely to a deadly famine that had swept through the Volga colonies, which were already devastated by crop failures in 1920 and 1921. The previous disastrous effects of WWI and the resulting civil strife and anti-German sentiment added to the misfortunes of the German settlers. The tyrannical policies of Josef Stalin--brutally enforced by his communist cohorts, another widespread famine in 1932, the con script ion of the young men of the towns into the Soviet army, and the banishment of property holders to prison camps all contributed to the steady decline of OBERMONJOU and the other Volga-German towns. The final blow came during WWII when the German army was approaching the Volga region. Stalin, fearing collaboration of the Volga Germans with the enemy, ordered the banishment of the entire population in AUGUST, 1941, along with the abrogation of the Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic of the Volga Germans, which had been established in 1924. Some 390,000 Volga Germans, which had been established in 1924. Some 390,000 Volga Germans were resettled in Siberia and Kazakhstan (Walters 1982; Beratz 1914).
Among those people resettled were several Kranewitter families. The author has contacted TWO descendants of these families: Vladimir Kranewitter and Katherine Dreher. Their story and the story of other relatives still living in RUSSIA and Kazakhstan aware recounted in Chapter 5, A FOCUS ON RELATED KRONEWITT FAMILIES LIVING IN CANADA AND ON RELATED KRANEWITTER FAMILIES LIVING IN ARGENTINA, RUSSIA, KAZAKHSTAN, AND GERMANY. Now that the RUSSIAn Government has eased restrictions on the German minority, more are trickling back to the former Volga German Republic near Savator. However, because the RUSSIAn economic situation is so bleak at the present time, many others are filling out the countless forms and submitting the endless documents necessary to immigrate to Germany.

The last section of this book is a surname index which consists of an alphabetical list of the surname KRANNAWITTER have already been discussed in this introduction. The reader will notice that in many instances in this book there are also several spellings for certain given names--for example, Catherine, Catharine, Catharina, Katharina, Catalina, etc. The reason for this is that each given name is presented as it was spelled in the record that it was extracted from, as are the surnames.
To make matters worse, from 1773 to 1775 Emyliano Pugachev and his followers staged a rebellion against Catherine. They also encouraged the Kirghiz to stage a rebellion of their own. InTENsifying raids against the German settlements. Large areas of the Volga colonists were devastated Some of Pugachev's followers, including about 100 Germans recruited from other Volga colonies, entered the town of Katherinenstadt, where they harassed and robbed the inhabitants of horses and guns. Katherinenstadt, the largest of the Volga colonists on the Wiesenseite, was only about FIVE miles southwest of OBERMONJOU. Amid all these tragedies, men totally unaccustomed to the rigors of farming were forced to learn that trade. Crop failures in the early years added to the colonists' desperation (Walters 1982; Beratz 1914).
After TWO generations of colonists had lived and died, conditions for the German settlers along the lower Volga slowly began to improve. They eventually prevailed and prospereDIED As the original Mother Colonies became too crowded, Daughter Colonies were establisheDIED Fortunately, the colony of OBERMONJOU was never attacked by Kirghiz or by Pugachev's rebels. In 1767, 299 people (82 families) had founded OBERMONJOU. TWO years later, the population was 324 (91 families). By 1798, when the first comprehensive census of OBERMONJOU was taken, the population had grown to 429. Through the 19th century, the population steadily increased as living conditions improveDIED But the good times were soon to end (Walters 1982; Beratz 1914).
The number of Volga Germans that remained in what later became the Volga German Republic increased to around 600,000 in 1914. In 1912, the population of OBERMONJOU had reached 2,882. By 1926, it had fallen to 2,157, due largely to a deadly famine that had swept through the Volga colonies, which were already devastated by crop failures in 1920 and 1921. The previous disastrous effects of WWI and the resulting civil strife and anti-German sentiment added to the misfortunes of the German settlers. The tyrannical policies of Josef Stalin--brutally enforced by his communist cohorts, another widespread famine in 1932, the con script ion of the young men of the towns into the Soviet army, and the banishment of property holders to prison camps all contributed to the steady decline of OBERMONJOU and the other Volga-German towns.

Anna Margaret and her husband Conrad BEFORT moved to the U.S. in 1876. Informant (Barbara STEINBOCK).
I would like our family history to begin with my great grandparents. Conrad and Anna Margaretha (Kronnewitter) BEFORT, along with their TWO small children, Paula and Peter, emigrated from OBERMONJOUr, RUSSIA, situated along the Volga, north of Saratov.
Leaving on SEPTEMBER 18, 1876, they arrived NOVEMBER 1, 1876. They landed in New York and immediately headed westward Conrad and Anna, along with other immigrants, settled in and founded what is now known as MUNJOR, Kansas. Upon their arrival (as this was open prairie) the first in order of things was to provide shelter. Their first home was built of sod cut from the prairie. After taking care of their immediate needs, and to survive the coming winter, the next most important thing was to build a place of worship.
Their first church was built in 1877. They were strong in their Catholic faith, and their lives were centered on their religious training.
Conrad and Anna were farmers and were active in their community and church. As the years passed, they eventually had a family of thirteen children. My grandfather, John C. BEFORT, was BORN in MUNJOR, FEBRUARY 18, 1890. He was the ninth child and youngest son.
Conrad died AUGUST 12, 1914, survived by his wife and TEN children. Anna lived in her home in Hays, Kansas, for some years, and the remainder of her life with her son and daughter-in-law John and Barbara.
John C. BEFORT, son of Conrad BEFORT and Anna Margaretha (Kronnawitter) BEFORT, was BORN on FEBRUARY 18, 1890. Barbara Steinbock, the daughter of Alois and Elizabeth Steinbeck, was a sister to triplets She was BORN on JUNE 3, 1893. On OCTOBER 24, 1911, they were MARRIED in MUNJOR, Kansas. They began their life together on a farm several miles west of MUNJOR. They remained there until 1920. During those years FIVE children were BORN to them; Josephine, 6/27/1912; Albina; 9/3/1913, Clarence, 8/4/1915; William, 2/2/1917; and Alex, 10/17/1919.
In the year of 1920, John and Barbara sold their farm and purchased half a section of land half a mile north of Hyacinth, Kansas. The home, barn and other buildings had been built about THREE years earlier. TEN other children were BORN to them the following years; Elizabeth, OCTOBER 19, 1920; Agnes, 7/8/1922; Jane 5/3/1924; John Jr. 9/18/1925, Ester, 8/31/1926; Bernice, 4/24/1928; Irene, 12/13/1929 twins Alois and Conrad, 10/30/1931 and Francis 10/6/1933.
John Jr. and Elizabeth died as infants. Alex was a veteran of World War II in the U.S. Army and saw action in Germany and France. He died in 10/1951. He was survived by his wife, Rose (Steinlein) BEFORT, and infant daughter, Gloria. Irene died 8/16/1965, at age 35, survived by her husband, Leroy Wilson and small son, David Conrad (twin son) died in 1947 at SEVENteen years of age. Francis died in a power line accident 8/22/1961. He was in the army from 1954-1955. He was age 27 when he passed away. He was survived by his wife Darlene (HAMMERSMITH) BEFORT and TWO small daughters, Rosemary, 4 and Margaret, twenty-THREE months olDIED
John and Barbara worked long hours to provide for and rear their family. Barbara would begin her day at 4'oclock in the morning to do her baking, laundry, and help with outside morning chores, including milking cows and feeding animals. During harvest she was in the fields working along side the men. She was also a seamstress and made most of the children's clothing.
Their children received their elementary education at Hyacinth in a ONE-room school, where all EIGHT grades were taught by ONE teacher. Simon GOETZ and Florence Ross were the teachers during those years. Their children walked to school most of the time as it was only about a mile away from home. However, other times, after a particularly heavy snow storm, the children looked forward to going to school in a ONE-horse open sleigh. John would bundle them up in a fur lap robe and don his buffalo fur coat and away they would go.
They were members of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, also located at Hyacinth, where their children received their sacraments and spiritual training.
John died at 43 years of age on JUNE 30, 1933. Barbara died at 48 years of age on JULY 1, 1941. They were survived by thirteen of their children.

Forward
Many books and papers about other Volga German families and their descendants, have been published over the last fifty years, and are treasured documents for not only the serious researcher, but also those with a passing interest as well. This book is ONE the descendants of ONE BEFORT family that left Germany to go to RUSSIA
While every effort has been made in this compilation to provide accurate and complete information, endeavors to acquire additional
facts and details from both the United States and European sources continue. Any omission of person (s), places, or events that deserve inclusion be rein is purely uninTENtional.
The founders of MUNJOR were part of the largest single expedition of Unsere Leute to emigrate from RUSSIA. Under the leadership of Balthazar Braggart 108 families left saratov by train on JULY 8, 1876. Their bodyconsisted of departures from Herzog, OBERMONJOU, Louis, Graf, Wittman, Marienthal, Schoenchen, and Gattung. The group
separated at Eydtkunen, with the MUNJOR founders among those electing to sail via the Hamburg-American line. Arriving in New York,
they then proceeded by train to Herzog. After remaining there several days, they repaired a site on Big Creek a short distance north of the present village of MUNJOR. Some TWO months later they moved to the present town site in Section 25, Township 14, Range 18 in Wheatland Township.
On NOVEMBER 1, 1876 an additional group came to MUNJOR. They had emigrated from Saratov on SEPTEMBER 30 and sailed from
Hamburg on the "Gellert" of the Hamburg of the Hamburg-American line.

Notes for Alexander Leiker:
Alex had a severely damaged heart with leakage of the valves causing the heart to enlarge to double its normal size. He had rheumatic fever at the age of 14. Alex worked as a farmer, carpenter, and a sheet metal man. He was a quality carpenter as he was quiet, patient and articulate in whatever he starteDIED The way he taught his sons how to saw wood reflected his approach to life and people in general. He said that you let the saw ride without effort and never force it. He related that if one forces something, it just gets much harder to accomplish. He did not have taste for disciplining his children and would rarely become irritated or angry. When he had to discipline he did it only half-hearted It was obvious that he had his Mother's compassion and patience. The year prior to his death, he built a new home for the family and did all the finished carpentry work himself. He had to rest for extended periods of time but then would proceed to work again. After Christmas he developed pneumonia and died January 3, 1953 of a combination of pneumonia, congestive heart failure and lung cancer.

Notes for Christina Enslinger: Christina was a farmer, creamery and feed story operator, an avid gardener, ironed clothes for a living and her last employment was as a housekeeper for St. Anthony's Hospital until she retired Her husband was an invalid due to a severe heart condition and so she primarily had to be the provider and care giver. She was only 4' 10" tall and was called "Christinya." She had ten children of which the first was still-born after a very difficult birth. She almost single-handed raised nine children, made sure they all went to High school and they never went hungry. She made sure they had proper clothing even if she had to sew most of the items herself. They were never without proper shelter or medical care. She routinely would butcher 50 chickens, with the assistance of the children, in one day and would sell them to a local hospital. Her garden was large with a wide assortment of vegetables and for many years grew three acres of potatoes. She canned anything not consumed immediately including beef and pork. A typical Saturday meant baking a dozen pies. Bread was baked at least every day. She baked many wedding cakes. On Mondays she washed and it was no uncommon for her to wash as many as twenty loads plus loads of wash and iron up to forty shirts since she had six sons and a husbanDIED Until 1952 she cooked on a kerosene stove, had no refrigerator, and used gas iron to iron clothing. Her washing machine was a gas powered machine.

Character study on Christof & Helen Stoecklein
The thoughts and recollections of them come to us through their youngest daughter, who at this writing was still living in Hays, Kansas. She is Catherine Zimmerman (Stoecklein). Both her parents, Christof and Helen came over to America on the same steam boat "SUEVIA" which landed in New York on August 3, 1876. With the help of guides and contacts there, they traveled westward, until they eventually landed in Victoria, KS. With this famous father, Peter Stoecklein, who was one of the five scouts to America from Russia before this trip took place, Christof and the Peter Stoecklein family finally moved to Munjor, Kansas.
Christof was 17 years old at the time they came to America. There were six children living, as they landed and Christof was the third oldest living, but the fourth oldest born, since the oldest daughter Anna died on the voyage, and had to be buried at sea.
The first job was to find work, and to. raise money. Christof and his three brothers go some work on the United Pacific Rail4roaDIED His father, Peter Stoecklein, obtained a Homestead certificate # 991 in Wakeeny, Kansas on August 1, 1883. He got 80 acres of land, seven miles south of Hays, KS. Christof also got a Homestead Certificate #2854, adjacent to his fathers land, on August 7, 1888. He married Helena Herklotz on January 26, 1880, in Munjor, Kansas. With the Homestead Certificate,, he obtained 180 acres of land right adjacent to his father, Peter Stoecklein. He farmed this land, as well as some plots of land near by, until his son Alexander went into the army for World War I. He then moved to Munjor, where he had a small home, and lived in their small Munjor home for the remainder of his life. He was always very quiet and never got overly excited He bore his burden of poverty graciously and his family honored him for it. He had cancer, and was sick quite a number of years. He died Dec. 2, 1936, at the age of 76 years. He was married 56 years and reared their nine children.
She was commonly called by the endearing name of "Lehnya". Her parents were Gottfried Herklotz and Mary Catherine Boos. When the people were making ready to leave Russia for America, Helena desperately want to come along to America with her brother Carl Anton. Carl gave his parents a solemn promise that he personally would take care of "Little Lehnya." So, with that assurance, she came along. According to church records, she was born in "Paninskojje", or Schoenchen Russia, on March 2, 1859. She came on the same boat as Christof. When Helena's group went Westward, they first land in Liebenthal, and from there to Schoenchen, KS.
Helena was by nature a kind girl and one who always helped others. She was happiest when she could do someone a favor. This story tells something about her spirit of congeniality. "She spent most of her life on her feet." This happened on the earliest times in Ellis County, The family needed jobs and money desperately. Her brother Carl told her that there were jobs in Salina, Kansas. "How do were get there?" Henea asked "we walk there" was the answer. So they set our toward Salina, Kansas via the railroad tracks. When they finally got there, Helena's legs and feet were terribly sore and swollen. They took off their shoes but they couldn't get them back on again. So, Helena sat around the track, while her brother went to look for jobs. Luckily, after some time, he did return, with jobs for both of them So they worked in Salina for a time.
Christof anDIED Helen were married in Munjor and started their life of their own. This started a long fifty six years of married life for them on the farm, which was situated seven miles south of Hays, KS. Here she spent many years with busy hands and busy feet. She always had a nice garden on that farmeDIED She grew many vegetables. One time she had an exceptionally large watermelon. She took this melon and toted it on foot, to Hays and sold it. With the money she brought back several shirts for Christof and his younger brother and a few other little things. She was very tired, but when she was the happy faces on the men who got the shirts, she forgot her pains and was just as happy as they were. It was harder to tell who was happier, the recipient or the giver.
Schooling was not open to all the children. The younger ones got to go, but not so the older ones, since they were needed on the farmed After they moved down to Munjor, he did practically no work. His health was failing. It was common sight to see him on the porch, rocking himself and smoking his pipe, while she kept raising around and in and out of the house. He finally died of cancer, and following this, she would stay with the children of her family, spending some time with all of them She spent most of her years in Hays, where she died at the age of 92 years. All in Hays neighborhood where she stayed, knew her and loved her. She never wore a hat in her life. She always wore dark clothes and a kerchief over her head called a "Babushka." After she died, the people missed that familiar figure, dressed in dark, walking to church, with the quick rapid steps.

The Descendants of Peter PFANNENSTIEL
Peter PFANNENSTIEL was BORN 1753 in Ober-Mandershield-Treir, Rhine-Pfaz (Rhineland-Palatine), Germany, and died 1774 in Kidnapped by the Khirgiz and never heard from again. He MARRIED (1) Maria Catharina ? in Ober-mandershield/Rhineland-Pfaz, Germany. She was BORN 1727 in Ober-Mandereid-Treir, Rhineland-Pfalz (Rhineland-Palatinate), Germany and died About 1767 in Mariental, (Tonoshurovkas), RUSSIA. He MARRIED (2) Sophia Maragaretha DINKEL in Mariental (Tonokoshurovkas), Samara, RUSSIA, daughter of Nika*olaus DINKEL and Anna ? She was BORN 1750 in Wittlich-Trier, Rhineland, Palatinate), Germany
Notes for Peter PFANNENSTIEL:
Peter came from craftsmen of Kurtrier Kurfust and grain farmers of the town of TuTENburg/Tudelback. He is referred to as Pter at times and other times as Johann so his name is probaly Johann Peter and he genrally he was know n as Peter. His family was Catholic. He was captured by the Khirgiz in a raid on Mariental in 1774 and never heard from again. The 1767 census lists him and his family from Trier, Ober Mandersheid, Germany.
This family adopted TWO oldest children (daughters). Their step-mother was a wife of the coloniust, Peter Hertz, who died in the colony: The girls were Mary Elizabetha, Age 13, and Anna Maria, age 10 years of age.
Peter and his brother Michael arrived in Mariental in 1767 with their families. The colonies, intially wre named after their leader and Peter PFANNENSTIEL was the first leader so the Colony was named PFANNENSTIEL and later changed to Mariental. Peter's wife died shortly after arriving in Mariental as she was the first settler to die. He MARRIED a second wife. In 1774 the Khirgiz raided several colonies including Mariental killing many people and taking them as prisONErs. ONE of the PrisONErs was Peter. He was never heard from again.
In the Beideck, RUSSIA village census of 1798, the following account is given regarding the surviving second spouse of Peter PFANNENSTIEL.
Sophia Margaretha PFANNENSTIEL, age 42, (she MAY have been 48) she and her son have resided temporarialy in several colonies since 1784 (should have been 1774) when her husband (Johann PFANNENSTIEL) was captured from Mariental by the Khirgiz; while in these colonies she adopted these children; her son has not paid the 3 nible tax.
Children are listed as follows:
Johann Adams 20 (Identified as Johann Adam PFANNENSTIEL)
Johann Fredrichs 8illegitimate son, surname no listed
Johann Christians 6 illegitimate son, surname not listed
Johann Tobias s 3illegitimate son, surname not listed
Anna Margaretha 212illegitimate daughter, surname not listed
Johann Adam listed can not be the sme as Johann Adam born 1768 (age 30) since Johann Adam born 1768 was MARRIED with THREE children under the age of 6, living with his wife in Ober-MUNJOU (Kriwoskoje), Samara, RUSSIA
Trier, Rhineland-Pfalz, Germany was probaly staging area and thus many people had TWO towns listed, ONE probably being their home town and the other the staging area. There also were far more people that had Treir listed as their point of origin than probably lived in the relatively small town of Trier. Thus, the individuals listed as having originated in Trier, Rhineland-Pfalz, Germany MAY have had their home village elsewhere.

Immigration: JUNE 16, 1766, To Mariental (Tonkoshurovka(, RUSSIA
Notes for Maria Catharina ?
Arrived JUNE 16, 1766, Mariental (Tonkoshurovka), RUSSIA
Notes for Sophia Margaretha DINKEL:
Sophia DINKEL was the only girl with the name of Sophia that was listed in the oringinal settlers list so she had to bne the Sophia Margarerha that MARRIED the "PFANNENSTIEL" after his first wife awas the first settler to die in Mariental. Peter's brother Michael MARRIED another woman after he was released from captivity so had he MARRIED Sophia, he would not have been able to remarry since Sophia was still alive. ONE has to conclude that it was Peter's first wife who was the first settler to die.

Trier, Rhineland-Pfaz, Germany was probaly a staging area and thus many people had TWO towns listed, ONE probaly being their home town and the other the staging area. There also were far more people that had Trier lsited as their point of origin than probaly lived in the relatively small townof Trier. Thus, the individuals listed as having originated in Trier, Rhineland-Pfalz, Germany MAY have had their home village elsewhere.

OUR GERMAN-RUSSIAN HERITAGE
I have located several references that indicate that the surname Dinkel if of occupational origin, one of those names derived from the trade or profession once pursued by the original bearer. In this instance, the name Dinkel cna be traced to the Germanic word "dinkel", meaning "spelt" Spelt was a grain similar to barley and wheat, which was grown extensively in the German speaking states during the middle ages. In those days it was common practice to identify a person with the type of work he diDIED Thus a person (farmer) that grew spelt was named Dinkel occurs in 1364.
Many of the Germanic people departed from German during the late 1700's and early 1800's due to the disaster in that part of the world following the Seven Year War (1756-1763). Family tradition suggests that our DINKEL ancestors emigrated from Koblitz, Bavaria in 1764, during the exodus of Germans to Russia. There was a major economic crisis in all Europe after the war, poverty was rampant and soldiers were roaming the countryside looking for work and something to eat.
Catherine the Great of Russia, of Germanic ancestry, had vast expenses of land that she wanted settled, developed and protected from the heathen nomadic tribes that lived in scattered sections of the Russian steppes. In 1762 she issued an invitation, referred to as a "Manifesto", to the European peoples. This invitation, being rather vague, produced few results so she issued a second invitation in 1763 containing 10 articles making specific promises to anyone that settled in Russia. This invitation garnered many people, including some 25,000 Germans from 1763 to 1767, willing to accept her invitation. From 1764, when the first settlers arrived in the Saratov region of the river Volga, until 1768 some 104 villages were established, 44 on the Bergseite and 60 on the Wiesenseite of the Volga. The villages on the west side, the mountain side, of the Volga were on the BVergseite, those on the east side, the meadow side, were on the Wiesenseite. The village of Herzog, on the Weisenseite, along the river Karaman was established in 1766. Times were extremely difficult when the settlers first arriveDIED They had to erect their own shelters and establish their villages in the vast expanse of the Volga steppes. Their initial shelters were mere earthen huts.
The original settler list for the Colony of Herzog, dated 14 July 1766, comprised of 35 families does not contain the surname DINKEL. It does, however, contain teh name of Johann and Anna Kuhn, names in positions 48 and 49 on Andreas A DINKEL's Pedigree Chart (included). The first reference DINKEL (Nicolaus) was located in the original settler list for the Colony of Mariental dated 1766. His name has not been found in any of the 1798 census that have currently been translated The census of Herzog, dated 2 June 1798, does indicated a Jakob DINKEL, had resided in Herzog but had moved to Leichtling in 1786. The 1798 census of Leichtling indicates that Jakob had resided there but had died prior to this census. His wife, Helen Ortman, and their children are included in the census of 7 October 1798. This census indicates that Joseph, a son of Jakob and Helena, was 3 years old at the time. Additional research disclosed that Joseph was the father of Peter who was the father of Andreas.
Eventually, the privileges bestowed on the settlers by the Manifesto of 1763, especially the exemption from military service, aroused the resentment of the Russians. In January 1874 a military law was passed requiring the settlers to serve in the armed services. This, the repeal of the special privileges granted by Catherine the Great in the Manifesto, aroused extreme indignation in the German settlers. In the spring of 1874, meetings were held in Herzog on the Wiesenseite, and Balzar on the Bergseite, to select scouts to the United States in search of new land to settle. The scouts returned with favorable reports. The initial military draft of settlers in 1874 precipitated matters and the first departure of settlers for the United States occurred in October 1875. A larger group followed, departing in June 1876. Our ancestors, Andreas DINKEL and Katharine KUHN, were among this latter group. Departing Saratov, this group occupied 17 coaches, some progressed to Hamberg and the remainder to Bremen. Andreas and Katharina were in the group progressing to Bremen. The Bremen group took passage on the North German Lloyd S.S. Mosel, under the command of ship master H. A. F. Neymaker. The fare was 38 rubels (27.36) per passenger. Katharina is listed as passenger 514 in steerage and Andreas is listed as passenger 542 in steerage on the passenger list of the ship, which includes 705 passengers. The S.S. Mosel arrived athe the Port of New York on 29 July 1876. Those coming to Kansas immediatly made arrangements, at rubles (11.52) per passenger, to proceed to Kansas arriving at Herzog/Victoria on 3 August 1876, the rubel was worth 72 cents.
After arriving in Herzog, Victoria, Andreas worked at various employments including a tour with the Kansas Pacific RailroaDIED He completed application to homestead the south 1/2 of the NE 1/4 of section 32-13-16 on 26 December 1877. Andreas and Katharina married on 21 January 1879. Their first child, Andreas A., was born on 28 July followed by nine more children, for a total of five boys and five girls. He purchased his first parcel of land, the north 1/2 of the NE 1/4 of section 32-13-16, from Magdalena Riedel, on 24 October 1884, for $425.oo. He was granted a homestead patent for the south 1/2 of the NE 1/4 of section 32-13-16 (applied for on 26 December 1877) on 27 Jaunary 1887. The patent was given under the hand of President Grover ClevelanDIED He purchased additional lands in ellis and Trego Counties., He also purchsed Lot 5 in Block 2 in the Nicholaus Dreiling addition to the town of Herzog on 26 February 1901 for $300.00 from Martin and Magdalena Riedel.

Genealogy of Fredrich and Lucy Werth

Co-Founders of Schoenchen, Kansas

By Rev. Alvin V. Werth, O.F. MARRIED Cap., MARRIEDA.
Saint Joseph Catholic Center
215 West 13th Street
Hays, Kansas 67601
Three days after ALVIN WERTH's death, his guardian EARL MEYER began his funeral homily saying, "It would be difficult for anyone on such short notice anDIED with such limited time to offer an adequate reflection "on Alvin's long and full life. Three months later it is still difficult."
"Anyone who knew Fr. Alvin will recall," Fr. Earl continued, "that he was meticious and extracatious in planning. all the details of his life." Perhaps it is not so well known that he was also very carerful in documenting most of it.
Alvin understood the value of documentaation for any history, and left 15 cartons of it to be digested at some future date. One of the most precious of these records is a 56-year-old motionpicture of his first mass at Schoenchen. He also left reams of notes on local and family history, thousands of sermonds, and a box after box of photographs.
There are also about 500 cassette tapes which will need to be carefully sifted before deciding what to keep. Many were taped off Mother Angelia's Eternal Word Television Network, which he loved to watch in his last years, but many others are recordings of interviews he conducted over the years of family members and other people from earlier eras.
Promptled by the 80-year-old four-seasons candle which, at the urging of Alvin's mother, had burned at Alvins' baptism, his first Mass, his 25th and 50th jubilies, and now his funeral, Earl summed up his life byy referring to and commenting on four overlappping seasons of Alvin's life: his family, his priesthood, his mature study, and his retirement.
Alvin, the 3rd oldest of the 12 children of Nikolaus and Magdalena (Hertel) Werth, was born 29 Augg. 1907 and baptised under the name Vincennt the following day by Fr, Charles Minig. DUrinng high school at Hays Catholic College, he played the violin in the school orchestra and sang in the Messiah chorous at the normal school (now Ft Hays State University. At the age of 18, he graduated first in his class from junior college at Hays Catholic College, and soon after left for the noviate at Herman.
Earl added that "In one sense he never left home. He spoke of his parents often and as though they were still alive. He followed every detail, almost daily events of his extended family and the activities of his hometown. More than once, when he was too sick or too waek to make a trip to Victoria, when news came that a grandniece or grandnephew was being married in Kansas City or Chicago; he instantly recovered and enjoyed the trip."
Alvin's sudden death cut short the completion of a family-related project he had been working on for some time, a genealogical study of the Werth family he was nearly ready to take to printers.
Alvin received minor orders froMARRIED Bp. John MARRIED McNamara in Cumberland on 4 Oct. 1930, and the three major orders from Bishop Francis Tief in May of 1932: subdiaconate May 1 at Concordia, diaconate May 5 at Victoria, and priesthood May 8 at Hays.

"He was rightly proud of being the first priest froom his home parish at Schoenchen." Fr. Earl commenteDIED "He enjoyed his work as a priest and found personal fulfillment in his priestly duties which were many and varieDIED He was a pastor, a chaplain, an administrator, a religious superior, and an author in Maryland, Missouri and his native Kansas. Even late in the hospital to visit the sick; and everyone got a personal prrayeer and Fr. Alvin's special blessing."
Alvin was happy in all of the pastoral assignments he held between 1933 and 1977 and corresponded withmany people in all of these places. Shortly before attending the Cresaptown MD centennary in 1985, he wrotte some old friends that he doubted whether his health would permit his traveling there, but that he would be there in spirit. "If I don't get to see you again in this life." he wrote, "I'll see you. in heaven, where there is no more pain and suffering, nothing but ssupreme happiness."
In his final bulletin at Antonio, Alvin said that he left with a heavy heart because "I like it here," but added quoted Mac. 6, 22, that he had submitted to his provincial's will".. . . in a noble manner, worthy of his years, the dignity of his advanced age, and the merited distinction of his gray hair."
During the course of his 80 years, Alvin seemed to have left the U.S. four times: at lesat there are references to that many foreign trips in the many boxes of documentation he left behind: a tour of 15 Italian cities, with the Fratellanza Society of St. Louis in August of 1968; a pilgrimage retreat at Our Lady of the Cape in Three Rivers, Quebec, in May 1969; a trip to Puerto Rico in 1980; and his goldenn jubilee tree in Munich, Heidelberg, Frankfort and various places in Switzerland and Austria in August of 1983.
Winter for Alvin, Earl said, was a retirement, which was neither bleak no cold, but rather thoroughly enjoyeDIED "He dabbled into family history and church history. He renewed old aquaintances and made new ones. He relished the opportunity to observe and comment on the busy life around hiMARRIEDIED. He spent many hours in the chapel. He seldom missed a service or a devotion in churchh. For all practical purposes the only television he watched were programs on religion...His interests even in retirement were apostolic."
ALVIN WERTH had many periods of illness during his life, but her was able to keep active till the day of his death June 27, 1988. After a normal day's activities, he asked to be taken to the hospital and, to the surprise of even the doctor in attendance, died shortly thereafter.
The origin and history of the name WERTH
The surname WERTH, sometimes spelled Woerth, comes from the Gothic surname Worth. Werth, according to THE CLASSIC GERMAN DICTIONARY. (Follet Publishing Company, Chicago, IL.,) means value, worth.
In 1968, this writer was in London, England, I found numerous entries of the surname Werth in the London telephone directory. I consulted a professor in a London Museum about the name Werth and he replied that a youngster he had studied about warlord general from Sussex, England by the name Werth.
The Werth Coat-of-Arms (by John W. Ward and Co., 171 Meeting St. Charleston, SC) shows that people of northwest Europe having the surname Werth belonged to the Saxton tribe.
In 1983 I toook a tour through Germany and SwitzerlanDIED I visited my friends, Rita and Wolfgand Shafers, in Warburg, Westphalia, Germany. In a Warburg cemetery I found a well-kept lot in which the family members of Henry Werth were interreDIED I also spoke with two gentlemen by telephone in Warburg who were namned Werth; one was a printer and the other was a dealer in lumber.
The surname Weth also appears in Hesse, Bavaria, Baden-Wurtemburg, Germany. It appears in the cantons of Bern and Graubunden, Switzerland (BORN Nussbaumer, Altmanwweg 1, CH-9012, St. Gallen, Switzerland).
The WERTH FAMILY HEREITAGE BOOK (piblished by Beatrice Bayley, Inc., Sterling, PA, 1981) lists 223 Werth families in the USA. The Hays telephone directory of. 1980, in addition to Werth families that I know who live in other states, number 108 Werth families not listed in the WERTH FAMILY HERITAGE BOOK. To the best of my knowledge, there are at least 331 Werth families in the United States in 1987.
The birth place of Fredrich and Lucy (Ebel) Werth is Schoenchen, Russia, located on the east side of the Volga River in the District of Samara, Russia. Schoenchen was founded there in 1770, approximately 40 miles northeast of Katharinenstadt. Schoenchen, a catholic village, was located between two Catholic villages, Solothurn (Wittman) to the north and Zug (Gattung) to the south. By 1773 Schoenchen had 54 families. In 1860 it had a population of 1200, and in 1918 it had 3194 parishioners. Capuchin priests were the first to minister ot the people of Schoenchen, followed by George Leibham, a native from German colony near Odessa, Russia, was a pastor at the time when many coolonists left for America. He built a beautiful stone church in 1903-04. He died in Schoenchen, Russia in 1910.
The S.S> Suevia departed from hamburg, Germany on July 19, 1876. It landed in New York August 3, 1876.
On the ship were a number of Volga German people who come from Schoenchen, Russia on the Volga.
Among them were:
WERTH-Fredrich and his wife Lucia and 4 children. They settled in Ellis Co. Kansas in the town of Schoenchen.
The grandparents of Fredrich Werth were Carl and Catherine (Kern) Werth. THe death certificate of John Peter Werth (State of Kansas Division of Vital Statistics, 26-641) sates that Carl Werth and Catherine Kern are the parents of John Peter Werth, who was born on July 21, 18366 in Schoenchen, Russia. John Peter Werth was the youngest brother of John Werth. Therefore (concluded that the parents of JOhn Werth were Carl and Catherine (Kern) Werth. They lived and died in Russia.
John Werth (1827-1875) married Anna Mertz in Schoenchen, Russia. They lived and died in Russia. John Werth farmed on a small scale and hauled the daily water supply for the village of Schoenchen from the Volga River. John and Anna (Mertz) Werth were the parents of Frederich Werth, who was born on August 15, 1846.

The father of Lucy Ebel was John Henry Ebel (the surname Ebel appears in Alsace-Lorraine, France), and her mother was Clementina LeikaMARRIED John Henry Ebel was born 1820 at Schoenchen, district of Samara, Russia. He was an attorney and a district judge. Fredrick Werth Sr., the son-in-law of John Henry Ebel, called him "Der grosse Richter" (district Judge). For a number of years John Henry Ebel kept records at Schoenchen of all marriages, births, deaths, funerals, and handled other legal documents. At the end of each year he sent all records to the city of Sarratove, Russia, where they kept on file. John Henry Ebel was also a grain merchant; he bought and sold wheat in Russia.
John Henry and Clementina Ebel lived and died in Russia. THeir daughter Lucy Ebel was born Nov. 1, 1850. She married Fredrich Werth, Sr. on Sept. 27, 1867.
VOYAGE TO AMERICA
A few years after their marriage, together with other emigrants of Schoenchen, Munjor, and Liebenthal, Frederich and Lucyy Werth, and their childre, left the upper Volga region in June, 1876, to tavel to Saratov. After the emigrants arrived at Sartov, they boarded a train to Warsaw, Poland, Berlin, and Hamburg, Germany. They left Hamburg on the ship Suevia on July 19, 1876 and arrived a;t New York after a voyage of about three weeks. In New YOrk they made arrangements with Mr. Adam Roedelheimer, an agent of the Kansas Pacific Railraod, for transportation to Ellis County, Kansas, for the sum of $11.52 per passenger. They arrived in Hays, Kansas at 10th and Main Street, during the first part of August, 1876. On August 14, they arrived at Big timber Township in Rush County, Kansas and settled a few miles north of Liebenthal, Kansas. On Sept. 6, 1876, Fredrich and Lucy Werth's only daughter, Clementina, was born in a hastily impoverished sod hut.
During May of 1877, the Frederich Werth family helped to found Schoenchen, Kansas when they moved to the Southwest Quarter of Section 28, Township 15, Range 18, which is still the site of Schoenchen in 1988.
The Wasingers
The ancestry of Franz Wasinger and Anna Scheck is shown as far as can be ascertained from church records in St. Fidelsis Monastery, Victoria, Kansas, and from vistis with siome of the older people who knew Franz and Anna Wasinger. The parents of Franz Wasinger and Anna Scheck are known and documenteDIED The grandparents of Franz Wasinger are in doubt. In the mid 1930's Frank Windholtz visited with Franz Wasinger about his grandparents. Franz Wasinger said that his grandfather was Christopher Wasinger. He did not know the name of his grandmother. Helen Hall in her These Are Our Religion has a Johannes Wasinger, spouse known, as the grandfather of Franz.
In "History from 1760 to 1938 of Joe Wasinger, G. Peter Wasinger, Anton Wasinger, SR., Anton DIED Wasinger" translated by Anton DIED Wasinger, is an account of a Joe Wasinger, married to a young woaman named Mareda, who migrated with the Germans to Russia 1764. THis JOe, about thirty years old, was the father of Johannes, a Christopher, and none other children. This Johannes is supposedly the great great grandfather of this writer. The Christopher is the forebear of nother group of Wasingers who came to the United States at the time.
This writer does not know who his great great grandfather Wasinger was, but likes to believe that Grandfather Franz Wasinger knew who his grandfather was. Grandfather Franz Wasinger was about sisxty-six years old in 1935 to 1936 when Franz Windholz interviewed hiMARRIED According to Windholz, Grandfather had a clear, sharp mind and a good memory. So this writer likes to believe that his great great grandfather and the great great grandfather of all the third generation descendants of Franz and Anna Wasinger was a Christopher Wasinger.
