Bio Photo RECORD UPDATE REQUEST- see below


Quincy Stroeing - I am a native of Melrose, Minn, which is in central Minnesota - 100 miles northwest of the Twin Cities in Stearns County.

Son of:
Alcuin H & Merena "Joie" (Welle) Stroeing

Grandson of:
Henry & Anna Nathe Stroeing
Anton & Apollonia Schoenberg Welle

In addition to the 4 sir names above, the other last names in my family tree are Ortmann and Gerads.

I frequently visit the 3 cemeteries in Melrose: St. Mary's (formerly St. Boniface), St. Patrick's and the town's oldest graveyard, Oak Hill Cemetery (formerly known as Melrose Burial Grounds)

I also frequently visit the cemeteries in the communities surrounding Melrose: Greenwald, Meire Grove, Spring Hill, New Munich, Freeport, St. Martin, Lake Henry, Richmond, St. Cloud and others in Stearns County.

I try to take photos of the gravestone in the cemeteries above if a photo request has been submitted.


The three cemeteries in my hometown of Melrose, Stearns County, Minnesota are:
- Oak Hill Cemetery
- St. Patrick's Cemetery
- St. Mary's Cemetery (formerly St. Boniface)

I have documented these three cemeteries by creating Find A Grave burial records for every individual buried in the three cemeteries through 2011.

In addition to the burial records, I've posted gravestone photos as well. Links to the spouse, parents and children continue to be added if the genealogy connection is known.

TRANSFERS: If I created a burial record for your relative (direct line and within 4 generations), and the individual is not a relative of mine, you can request a transfer of ownership of the burial record by emailing me.

My preference is to click the "Edit" tab in the upper right corner of the memorial record. Then click the "Suggest a Correction" link.

Please include the following in your transfer request email:

- your first, last name & Find A Grave member ID
- the first last name on the burial record
- the burial record number
- your relationship to the individual

Please allow a generous amount of time for processing your request.

NOTE: Please do not blindly transfer your records to me. Disposing your records on other Find A Grave contributors is disrespectful to both the deceased and the contributor.

Find A Grave Memorial# 85790998

I can shed some light on the dialogue that is posted on Find A Grave Memorial# 85790998 Catherine Krebsbach Stadtherr.

Paul Stadtherr was married twice, both times to women name Catherine. That's why you couldn't locate a marriage record for Catherine Bussmann and John Schreder. They never married. John Schreder and Catherine Bussman's only connection was only that John's wife, Catherina Krebsbach along with Catherine Bussmann (nee Wettle) both married Paul Stadtherr.

I list evidence for the 2 Catherine's below:

Paul was first married to Catherine Bussmann (nee Wettle). Evidence for this shows up nicely in the 1900 census.

Paul Stadtherr Head M 24 Minnesota
Katherine Stadtherr Wife F 29 Minnesota
Erwin Stadtherr Son M 0 Minnesota
John Bussmann Son M 9 Minnesota
Anna Bussmann Daughter F 7 Minnesota
Henry Bussmann Son M 5 Minnesota

( )

Note there are Bussmann children living in the home with Paul in the census. Also, Catherine (Bussman's) birthday was listed May 1871 (not shown above). This is very different than Catherina Krebsbach's birth of Feb. 14, 1879. Additionally Catherine Bussmann and Paul had a son, Erwin, born estimated 1900. You cab see him on census. On Erwin's death certificate it states mother as 'Wetle' (Wettle).

Also, Catherina Krebsbach's first husband hadn't passed away yet at the time of 1900 census. We can find Catherina Schreder in a separate 1900 census listed with her husband, John Schreder.

John Schreder Head M 26 Minnesota
Katie Schreder Wife F 21Minnesota
Joseph Schreder Son M 2 Minnesota
Theresia Schreder Daughter F 0Minnesota

( )

Fast forwarding to the 1920 census we now see the Schreder children living with Paul. The Catherina listed there was born estimated 1880.

1920 Census
Paul Stadthen Head M 43 Minnesota
Katharina Stadthen Wife F 40 Minnesota
August Stadthen Son M 18 Minnesota
Hildegard Stadthen Daughter F 15 Minnesota
Wilbert Stadthen Son M 13 Minnesota
Norbert Stadthen Son M 9 Minnesota
Albert Stadthen Son M 6 Minnesota
Alma Stadthen Daughter F 2 Minnesota
Jos Shrvedor Stepson M 21 Minnesota
Tresy Shrvedor Stepdaughter F 19 Minnesota
Miles Shrvedor Stepson M 18 Minnesota
Anton Shrvedor Stepson M 16 Minnesota

Thank you for all your hard work!

Frank Roering
Frank's birth certificate that is on his MN Historical death certificate clearly states January 28, 1884.

Frank Roering
My records tell me that Frank Roering was born in Nov. of 1882, yet his tombstone has 1884, my problem is that Heinrich Roering was born on Jan. 1, 1884 and Frank is listed as Jan. 28, 1884. So my question is how can 2 parents have 2 sons, 28 days apart? He was always referred to as the oldest of my Dad's uncles.

I think the parents and siblings linked to her are incorrect. If you look at her marriage certificate it lists her parents as: Edward Hynes and Margaret Belson.
