Pieces to the Schröder Puzzle

A few months ago, I wrote about some confusion with dates regarding Heinrich Ludwig Wilhelm Schröder.  Since then, I have been collecting records on all of his siblings to see how Frederick Ludwig Schroeder (my great great grandfather) could be related.

From German baptism records, I’ve learned that Heinrich’s parents, Friedrich Wilhelm Schröder and Auguste Wilhelmine Besser were the parents of eight children.

I’m thinking my Frederick must be a cousin to Heinrich, if he’s related at all.  I suppose it’s possible that he and Heinrich are the same person and Heinrich changed his name at some point, but that seems unlikely unless his name was changed around the time of the birth of Heinrich Wilhelm Rudolph.

Supposedly, my Frederick was born on December 12, 1850 in Germany (or Prussia).   So far, all I know for sure about Frederick is that he married Louise Reisenberg on May 8, 1882 in Lucas County, Ohio.9

One thought on “Pieces to the Schröder Puzzle

  1. Hello. I am Stuart Kincaid Wiseheart, son of George Richard Wiseheart who grew up in Jacksonville, Illinois. His family came by covered wagon from Kentucky and we still have the bows for the canvas and a piece of furniture that was brought on the wagon.
    I haven’t had time to research the names you’ve provided, but there sure seem to be a lot of commonality. I’d enjoy discussing this further, so please don’t hesitate to contact me at any time.
    Thank you!
