Hello, I saw your post on I am not related. Just helping people. It looks like Anna was married for a 3rd Carl F. Statz, and she died in 1991. See obit.
Anna was married to Orrin M. Kelley. He died in 1934. They had 2 sons Willard & Dale. Dale died in 1954. Anna and her children were listed in the 1940 census when she was married to August Marhank. I don't know when he died.
Hope this helps. Ruth Pokorny

Waunakee Tribune July 25, 1991 (Dane County, Wisconsin)

Carl F. Statz dies at 87; founded implement firm

Carl F. Statz, who decided to risk going into business for himself in the Depression-ravaged 1930s and went on to build a farm implement company that is respected throughout
Wisconsin and the Midwest, died last week at age 87.
He died July 18,1991 at his home.
He was bom to Anton and Mary Statz on Feb. 3, 1904 in Martinsville. He lived most of his life in the Waunakee and Windsor area.
He was married to Helen Fassbender, who died in 1960. He
later married Anna Marhank, who died earlier this year.
Mr. Statz made up his mind to go into business for himself one day in January 1930. Since he had always enjoyed working with farm machinery, this was the type of business he chose. He purchased the old Worringer Livery Barn on South Madison Street as the site for his new business and took on an International Harvester franchise.
Initial inventory was very small, consisting of only six or eight machines, including a 14" and 16" walking plow, a wagon, a manure spreader, a com planter, a Sulky com cultivator, a mower and a dump rake or side rake. All these machines were horse drawn.
Those early days in business were difficult because of the Depression. Often, a farmer who needed machinery didn't have the wherewithal to make the purchase. Many a transaction was made over the kitchen table where Mr. Statz and his prospective customer put their heads together in an effort to come up with a mutually agreeable price. Sometimes farm produce was thrown in for good measure. On one occasion, Mr. Statz recalled a farmer good-naturedly giving him two chickens and a dozen eggs so the so the deal could be closed.
Mr. Statz continued to build on the business, until his retirement in 1975. Over the years, the firm moved several times, and today it is located at the
(STATZ continued on 3)

intersection of Hogan Road and Hwy. 19, east of Waunakee. The firm of Carl F. Statz and Sons now employs 35 people.
Mr. Statz was a past director of First Wisconsin Bank of Waunakee and also a member of St. Olaf's Catholic Church in DeForest.
Survivors include a daughter, Eileen (Dean) Hahn of DeForest; three sons, Ron (Toni) Statz, Ken (Mary) Statz, and Dave (Dorothy) Statz, all of Waunakee; 18 grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; a brother, William Statz of Waunakee, and many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his two wives; a sister, Regina Maly; and five brothers, Louis, Frank, Tony, Joe and Leonard.
Funeral services were held July 20, 1991 at St. Olaf's Catholic Church in DeForest, with the Rev. Daniel Finnane officiating. Burial was in St. John's Cemetery, Waunakee.
