Teresa Mary Madl, known from her youth as Mollie--was born at Warrenton, Missouri on May 31, 1865; one of ten children of Peter Schoenhofer and Teresa Meidel Schoenhofer. When Mollie was about six months old her parents and family travelled by Covered Wagon to Eudora. Kansas, where they purchased a farm, which until then had been occupied by Indians. On this trip Mollie's mother carried, concealed in her hair, the money thay had saved for the purchase, for in those days both missouri and Kansas were still partly inhabited by Indians and infested by bandits.
Mollie married John Madl at a Nuptial Mass in Holy Family, Church, Eudora on October 30, 1882.
