Hugo Arthur Gottschalk (1/30/1888 Germany – 10/11/1968 Rochester MN; ) married Emelia Lydia Benicke (12/12/1886 Lewiston MN – 12/17/1966 Rochester MN; ) on 9/2/1912 in Winona MN. They had four children:

* Lester August Gottschalk (1/13/1914 Lewiston MN – 5/19/1989 Lapeer MI; ) married Laura Lucille Auguste Grosenick (born 5/29/1916 Douglas MN) on 3/31/1940 in Garfield MN
* Vernon Edward Gottschalk (8/23/1915 Lewiston MN – 12/13/1998 Rochester MN; ) married Monetta Joyce Kendall (7/18/1917 Stewartville MN – 4/3/1996 Rochester MN; ) on 12/24/1935 in Robbinsdale MN.
* Alvin Bernard Gottschalk (12/28/1917 Lewiston MN – 3/8/1998 Rochester MN; ) married Lucille Sophia King (8/20/1919 Rochester MN – 2/10/1998 Rochester MN; ) on 6/28/1941 in Rochester MN.
* Elmer Hugo Gottschalk (10/8/1923 Lewiston MN – 12/12/2015 Sauk Rapids MN; ) married Ruth Thurley on 9/28/1946 in Winona MN

This is the family in Lewiston MN in 1920: and in 1930 in Cascade MN: and 1940:

If there are naturalization papers for Hugo Gottschalk, they may have more information for this family.

This is Lester in the MI death index: I do not know when Laura Gottschalk died. I got her full name from Lester's obits, as well as these birth records for their children: In 1940, Lester was living with Laura's parents: so we know Laura was born c. 1917 in Minnesota. I do not know if Laura remarried after Lester Gottschalk died, and I do not know when she died. I got the date of birth above for Laura from a birth record that I do not have a link to.

This is a more complete obit for Elmer: This may be the obit of Elmer's stepson: Ruth was alive in 2015 per Elmer's obit.

I have obits for everyone above except for Laura Gottschalk.
