The Wisconsin Pooch's

Classification: Query
Surnames: Pooch
I have just started researching this line. The person of interest to me is Heinrich Pooch who came to America probably in the late 1850's as a young boy from Rummelsburg. I think his parents were John Pooch, Senior and Hannah. So far I think his brothers were John, William and Fred. There may have been a sister Ernestine. The family also had an old obituary of Carl Pooch who came to America in 1859. Perhaps he is also a brother - He eventually moved to Lamberton, MN. What I do have is the following from the 1870 census taken in the town of Neshkora, county of Marquette, State of WI. There are three Pooch families living next to each other:

Pooch, John - age 31, farmer, b. Prussia
Pauline, age 27, Keeping House, b. Prussia
Alvina, age 2, b. Wisconsin
Edward, age 5 months, b. Wisconsin

Pooch, William, age 26, farm laborer, b. Prussia
Augusta, age 23, keeping house, b. Prussia
Bertha, age 4, b. Wisconsin
Adeline, age 2, b. wisconsin
Emma, age 3 months, b. Wisconsin
Kregor, Caroline, age 18, without occupation, b. Prussia
Pooch, Henry, age 23, farm laborer, b. Prussia

Pooch, John Sen., age 60, Farmer, b. Prussia
Hannah, age 60, keeping house, b. Prussia
Fred, age 15, farm laborer, b. Prussia
Lutesh, Minnie, age 76, without occupation, b. Prussia

The Lutesh is interesting as may indicate Hannah's maiden name - mother or sister.

I'm off to the library - if anyone has any clues I would appreciate them - am going to start by trying to get marriage records to indicate who parents were.
