i see but a few persons buried at Emanuel Lutheran Church Cemetary's WERE listed in 'Find a Grave'
so WE DECIDED TO TAKE A STAB AT IT...
Now that more of us are becoming participating members of Find a Grave...who knows...smile It could become addicting....
This File was begun by constructed the extended Oscar Albert August and Alice Vilora Kiecker Family...whose genealogical work had largely been attended to by Sophie Kiecker--Mrs Elmer Kiecker of fairfax, minnesota...
Sister Geri took and posted several ofthe marker pictures included in this file.. then it grew and you and you and you may be colloborators A--ok???
Some say Great Grandfathers name was changed from Black to Bleck---several stories have circulated about this change but it is uncertain if the change came about because of a family feud or just to help with mail mixups....
If one looks just to left of marker picture sent me by my sister Geraldine; One can see an identical stone used for his wife, our Great Grandmother Charlotta Henrietta Krueger--
Why they were a few rows apart and not buried together as man and wife remains a mystery...His name is Black but on her marker it is bleck
--go figure..glenn d kiecker
a collaborator sent this in :-))
Charles Black, a well known Wellington township farmer who has been a sufferer with cancer of the lip for the past four years, passed away at the family home in Wellington township early Monday morning, June 10th. The deceased was born in Nichorz Ger. May 11, 1843. He grew to manhood in his native land and in 1865 he enlisted in the German army and a year later he took an active part in the Austrian-Prussian war. He left Germany in 1868, and after coming to America he first located in Fon du Lac, Wis. On March 25, 1871, he was united in marriage in the Wisconsin City to Miss Charlotte Krueger. They removed to Renville County, Minnesota, the same year, locating on the farm in Wellington township upon which he died. Mr. Black was a splendid citizen and one of the most successful farmers in the county while he was one fo the largest real estate holders in this section of the state, he made his money by his industry and intelligence, and never stooped to unfair methods in accumulating his fortune. The malady which finally caused his death first appeared about four years ago. He spent several weeks in St. Paul during the early spring of 1907, but the specialists finally sent him home without hope. Since that time he waited patiently for the summons that would relieve him. Besides the heart-broken wife, several living children are left to mourn. They are: Robert Black, Wellington; F.W.Black, a well known Wabasso business man; Emil Black of Lucan, Minn.; Mrs. Hugo Kiecker of Wellington; Charles, George and Gustave Black, who reside at home.
