Minnie was the daughter of Mary Louise Kreutzmann from
Family rumor has it that Mary's oldest daughter, Minnie, was born out of wedlock in Germany. Mary and Minnie were sent to America because they shamed their family back home. Minnie was 9 when her mother married Fred Belling. Mary did not list herself as "widow" or "divorced" on the marriage record.
Fred adopted Minnie and she was known as Minnie Belling for the rest of her life. Have not yet been able to confirm her birth record in Germany to see if the rumors are true.
Minnie's mother Mary died of convulsions while giving birth to her 5th child, Emma. Emma died too. Both Mary and Emma were buried in the family plot at Riverside Cemetery in Appleton next to Fred's 1st wife, Minnie Moeser Belling. At the time of Mary's death, Fred was left alone with 8 children. Minnie was the oldest at 17. The other children were 14, 12, 11, 10, 7, 4, and 2.
Minnie was a very loving person and as the oldest, took care of all the Belling children, even after her mother died and Fred remarried.
On January 23, 1897, minnie married Henry Carl Jacob Aldag and moved to Sheboygan. Together they had two children: Milton Ernest Rudolph and Marguerite Caroline Sarah. Minnie died in 1927 of peritonitis.
