    My name is Laura Pamiza, I was born in Hutchinson, Kansas but now live in Japan. My mother and her mother and father were all born and raised in Kansas. My grandfather Lowell Kenneth KEEN was born in Irving, Kansas which does not exist anymore. His father was Lewis (Louis?) KEEN who was born in Blue Rapids we think and possibly lived in Marysville.

If you know of either of these families, please give me some direction. I am fairly new to geneology so all the advise you could give would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.

    STEUCK and MOSER -- Searching for ancestors, siblings and their descendants of Frederick Herman STEUCK, b 17 Jul 1863, Germany, d 18 Feb. 1927 in Papinville, Bates Co., Mo., married April 1889 in Marysville, Marshall Co., Kan., to Rosetta MOSER, b 18 May 1869 in Bern District of Switzerland, d 12 June 1952 in Rich Hill, Bates Co., Mo. In a newspaper obituary, Herman, as he was known, was reported born in Pectin, Germany, but I am unable to find Pectin on a map, although I have heard he was from Prussia. Herman Steuck had four siblings living in the U.S. at the time of his death: 1] Fritz (b 15 Apr 1865) in St. Joseph's, Mo.; 2] William M. (b abt 1871) in Kansas City, Mo.; 3] Carl Ferdinand (b abt 1873) in Nevada, Vernon Co., Mo., m to a FOX; 4] Emma S. (b abt 1869) m to a BRAUNLICH in Kansas City, Mo. He also left two brothers and two sisters in Germany: Gustave (b abt 1867) and Carlene (b abt 1868); the other two names are unknown. Herman and Rosetta had three sons: 1] Frederick "Fritz" Steuck, b 15 Apr 1890, Marysville, Kan., d May 1979 in Rockville, Bates Co., Mo., m 10 Jan. 1912 in Lutherville, Johnson Co., Ark., to Katherine Marie Emma "Katie" DOEPEL, b 3 Dec. 1890 in Lutherville, Ark., d Nov. 1978 in Papinville, Mo.; 2] Gustave Herman Steuck, b 31 Jan 1892 in Harwood, Vernon Co., Mo., d 1 April 1958 in Papinville, m 2 Jan 1912 in Nevada, Mo., to Mae FIX, b 30 Jul 1888 in Nashville, Kingman Co., Kan., d 10 Nov. 1960 in Rich Hill, Mo.; 3] Ernest William Steuck, b 21 Jul in Harwood, Mo., d 22 Feb 1920 in Schell City, Vernon Co., Mo., m 26 Feb 1914 in Rich Hill, Mo., to Verda Arvilla STRADER, b 27 Sept 1895 in Nevada, Mo., d 3 Jan 1965 in Santa Cruz, Santa Cruz Co., Calif. I have a little information on descendants of four of Herman's siblings, although I cannot attest to its reliability: 1] Fritz Steuck had three sons: Paul A., b 9 Feb 1908 in Mo., d 19 Jan. 1990 in Mo.; William, b 30 May 1914 in Mo., d Mar 1985 in Mo., m to Mary DEEM; Albert H. (no other data); 2] Emma (Steuck) Braunlich had two sons: William, b 23 Mar 1902 in Mo., d Jul 1980 in Mo., and Arthur (no other data); 3] William M. Steuck had two daughters: Helen and Elizabeth; 4] Carl Ferdinand Steuck m Helen Fox and they had a daughter, Marie (no data), and a son, Walter Paul, b 14 Dec. 1909 in Mo., d Oct 1974 in West Palm Beach, Palm Beach County, Fla. Rosetta (Moser) Steuck immigrated to the U.S. from Switzerland abt 1888. She is believed to have had two sisters in the U.S. -- Annie and Emma. Rosetta's parents were Gottlieb Moser (b 1846) and Roseanna SCHNEIDER (b (1851). Her maternal grandparents were Benedict Scheider (b 1810) and Marianna STUKE (b 1813). Thank you, Len Klempnauer, Capitola, Calif.

  23. Jo Gottman 12 Feb 1998
    My name is Jo Gottman and I am researching my husbands GOTTMAN(N) family. I found one of his ancestors in a Baptist Convention book listing his obituary. He was the pastor of the Blue Rapids Baptist Church. He was born July 10, 1856 to Christian and Charlotte Gottmann in Pennsylvania. His obit stated that he passed away October 23, 1899. This obit was in the Kansas Baptist Annual (1900) page 32. If you could help me find more information on this ancestor, I will be so happy. This Gottman(n) family is very elusive. Thanks, Jo.

Cyriakus' parents were Xaver Nester and Franziska Rapp of Germany. Cyriakus and Maria emigrated in 1867.

  27. Phyllis Kimbro Cata Sun April 5 1998
    My ancestor was brother to Gustave Stauss who was one of the first settlers in Marysville, Marshall Co., KS. Gustave Stauss came from Germany with his wife Wilhelmenia Angel Engle in 1855, Gustave was B. 1825, his brother Vincent Stauss B. 1827 in Germany came w/his wife Anna Wolff, she was assumed to be the daughter of Carl Wolff and Gertrude wolff who showed on the American Ship Wabamo in August & Sept. 1857. My problem is that I cannot find Vincent Stauss in the 1860 Census anyplace. Since Gustave was in Marysville by 1860, I was wondering if there was anyone out there that could scout around in the indexes/census and find my Vincent and his #2 wife. Genevefa (Eve) Rapp Stauss. It's possible that Vincent Stauss and #1 Anna lived in Ks. in 1860, but I have not been able to discover this. They say they had all of their children in Iowa, the Davenport Scott Co. area and I have records of them there, but I just wonder if they didn't follow brother Gustave at first and then head back to Iowa. I do know that they left Iowa in 1867 after they married - Vincent & #2 Eve marr. Sept 1867 in Scott Co., Iowa. Anna must have died when she had my Gr. Grandfather Franklin Joseph Stauss B. 1865. I found records of Peter Wolff age 65 being in Vincent's household in 1870 in Marysville, KS. and I wonder if that would be Carl peter Wolff. I have land records where Peter Wolff owned land in Ks. Marysville, I just need to find Vincent in 1860, he might be in Gustave's household. Could anyone check this out for me. I know Vincent left Ks. again about 1972 after having Paul &* Joseph Stauss in Marysville...they headed bk to Davenport, Scott Co., ,Iowa....that family ended up in Paris, Logan Co., Arkansas where Vincent started the St. Joseph's Catholic Church. I would love to hear from anyone regarding these families.

    So far as I know my ggrandfather lived in Marshall Cty. His name was Mahlon CHAFFEE, his daughter, my grandmother, was Helen Adeline Chaffee (Married George M PENDLETON (I have books on the Pendletons). He also had a son Wilmot who died unmarried and other children. His wife may have been Adelia Elliott (ancestry unknown). Do you have information on these people? I have photographs of me sitting on Mahlon's lap in about 1935 and am named for him. Thanks, Rodney Mahlon Cole. He may have removed to Seneca (Nemaha Cty.) later in life.
