Thank you so much for Minnie's birth! So it is recorded in Milwaukee County, Wisconsin under Schaefer. Yes, if you can see the family info on this that would be great!

How much would it cost for a copy from Milwaukee Public Library? I'd also like to see Milwaukee address book listings for Schaefer, Fred or Alfred. Of course it may be listed as hyphenated name Schaefer-Sohland, probably from 1895 when he claimed to arrive to about 1903.

According to 1900 census they lived at 516 Walnut Street at that time. Interesting that his occupation is "artist" because after re-inventing (?) himself in Allentown (and claiming to be a native, Chicago born American) he became a very successful businessman.

Also, is there a naturalization index for Milwaukee County?

Thanks for all the help! We'd been chasing false leads on these fasinating folks, finding them listed as Schaefer
clears up some of the mystery.

Of course there is always plenty more mystery to solve as the world turns!
Thanks again!
