The ninth of ten children of John Henry and Mary Anna Plock Roeder, he married Dorothea Philipina Zahn on Jan 12, 1901. They had two sons, one of whom died age 10.

After marriage, Fred took over and later bought the 160 acres owned by his father-in-law, Dietrich Zahn, in Section 25 of Lyman Twp. He later bought 320 more acres which he farmed with the help of his son, Harvey.

Even though they used modern equipment, the farming took it's toll. He was exhausted when they retired and moved to Paxton in 1949. He was killed when the car he was driving was struck by a train.

His mother's maiden name and Fred's middle name supplied by Stuart Roeder, a g-nephew.
