me again. I found the family in 1895 census (familysearch.org
). John J 38 born Germany,
Frances 32 born Jackson County, Albert 5 born Clinton County, Elsie 1 born Carroll.
Unless the children were born after Elsie or they either died in that one year spread
between the time the family left Clinton and moved to Carroll or after they got to
Carroll. There is a 4 year gap between the two children so three children could have been
born and died during in that time but its a bit of a stretch. I can only find Albert on
(died in LA). It could mean that they were older than the 2 survivors.
That is quite likely as parents were married Christmas Day1880. Albert was born in Lyons,
Clinton county, Iowa (per WWII draft card) on 5 March 1889. Also found John Julius buried
in Colorado on findagrave - born 1855, married 1880, still having children in 1894
(Elsie). Just found 1910 census (Vosbeck). According to 1910 census Frances was 6 years
younger, they had been married 24 years, she had had 5 children of whom 3 were living (of
course, the census taker may have gotten that surviving versus died switched). This
census says there is a 6!
year gap, but that makes Albert older than he really was.
I'd check cemeteries in following places: Jackson county, Iowa; Lyon, Clinton, Iowa;
Manning, Carroll, Iowa and if that doesn't yield anything them Douglas county, South
Dakota. Just put in cemeteries name place into google. I'd find cemetery names
then phone them.
I tried a couple of other spellings. This surname has many possiblities and these search
engines aren't very strong.
Did you find them in the 1900 census? I can't. that is another place were it asks
how many children the mother bore.
