Surnames: Carl Winter family
Carl and Wilhelmina Winter came from Prussia to US circa 1858 with 6 children. I have found the family in the 1870 census for Sheboygan but can't find them after that. I'm interested in tracing their movements after that. Any help or advice?

I would consider this family as being you family in 1880. The ages are about right and "Minnie" might be short for "Wilhelmina" for wife and daughter.

1880 Chilton, Calumet, Wisconsin

Charles WINTER, Self, M, Male, W, 60, PRU, PRU, PRU, Farmer
Minnie WINTER, Wife, M, Female, W, 62, PRU, PRU, PRU, Keeps House
Minnie L. WINTER, Dau, S, Female, W, 22, PRU, PRU, PRU, Home
Herman WINTER, Son, S, Male, W, 20, WI, PRU, PRU, Farmer

Additionally, check out Charles Winter in Sheboygan, WI in 1860 if you haven't already. Seems to be the same family as the 1870 Carl Winter in Sheboygan only with a few more children including a 6 month old Herman.

Good Luck.

Thanks for your help. I have the 1870 census regarding the family and I also found a Carl Winter in the Milwaukee Hospital in 1900 which states he was born in Germany but the records are very hard to read as far as age goes. Do you have any idea where I can find a volunteer to look up death records for Wisconsin?

I've indexed several different Carl/Chas. Winter (1888, 1912, 1922, 1923, 1927, 1930, 1932, 1945) death notices, obits., anniversaries, etc. found in Milwaukee's German newspapers, but no entries for "von Winter". There are about 300 entries for Winter in the current data.
