Birth: Feb. 19, 1827

Death: Dec. 2, 1912
Jackson County
Kansas, USA

John Theodore Schroder was born February 19, 1827, in Mecklenburg, Germany, died December 2, 1912, aged 85 years, 10 months, 27 days. His boyhood and early manhood were spent in Germany. Here the stories of great opportunities in America reached him and he was among the great number of German young men who having heard, risked all, broke home ties and came to the new world. These facts seem prosaic to us today, but they were not so. It was a darling romance. On the ship that brought him across the water, was another pair of eyes turned toward the future, another heart beating expectantly and bravely. These eyes belonged to a German girl who was to become his wife. On the way west, at LaPorte, Indiana in 1854, they were married. Six years later the last lap of the journey were completed and in 1860 they came to land here in Soldier known as the Schroder home. Into this home were born 5 children. Three grew to adult life and survived father and mother, Mr. John Schroder, Mrs. Lizzie Smith and Mrs. Lena Suter. Nine grandchildren and two great grandchildren are descendants of this couple. John T. Schroder joined the Methodist church here in Soldier along with his wife, shortly after they came to Kansas.
Mrs. J. O. Smith of Leavenworth, and Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Schroder of Manhattan attended the funeral of Grandpa Schroder Wednesday. The Soldier Clipper, December 11, 1912
