Amelia (Kracaw) Neiderheiser Beaty

Amelia Kracaw was in the household of a widow called Christian Krakau in the 1850 Warwick, Tuscarawas, Ohio census. The name is often spelled Kracaw, but has other variations.

Amelia was 15 years old in that census, along with an 18 year old Augustus Krakau, and the 53 year old widow, Christian. The mother and Augustus both show their place of birth to be Germany, while 15 year old Amelia shows her birthplace to be Ohio. So, the family apparently arrived in America between when Augustus and Amelia were born, or 1832-1835. On the passenger list of the ship "Virginia", arriving in Baltimore, MD, from Bremen, Germany, on 4 Sep 1834, are Argest Krakrau, age 40, Christiana Krakrau, age 39, and August Krakrau, age 2. The points of commonality between this census record and the passenger list suggest they are likely the same people. In addition, 2 more daughters and 4 more sons of the Krakrau family were on that boat.

Amelia married first, Fred Neiderheiser, about 1858, in Ohio. They had Mary, Frank F, Anna, and Leslie (a boy). Fred died before 1880 in Washington County, Iowa, where Amelia appears in the 1880 census as a widow.

She married, second, John T Beaty, of Washington County, Ohio on Jan 28, 1881. They had no children together, but continued raising the Neiderheiser children from her first marriage. They moved to Jefferson County, IA at some point after 1881 and lived there for the rest of their lives.

Her daughter, Anna Neiderheiser, went on to become President of the KC National School for Deaconesses and Missionaries, Kansas City, Missouri, a Methodist school for young women, from 1902 to 1939.

Her son, Fred F Neiderheiser, was a farmer of Greene County, Iowa. The other children have not been traced by this writer.

She was also a great aunt to Theodora Kracaw Kroeber Quinn (through her brother Austin Kracaw) a noted author and anthropologist of the early 20th century. She was especially noted for her writings concerning the anthropology and history of California Native Americans.
