Fritz, Caroline, Martha Gottschalk-Milwaukee County

Fritz, Caroline, Martha Gottschalk-Milwaukee County

Classification: Query
Surnames: Gottschalk/Meyer
I am looking for information about this family. Fritz and Carolina came to Wisconsin from Prussia around 1860. Martha was one of their children. They may have lived in Milwaukee County, Martha married Hastings Meyer I believe in Wisconsin and they later lived in Minnesota.
Any one know of them? Thanks-
Stacey Bing

I do have the 1870 census and 1880 census. I am not sure where to go from there.

I posted to the Milwaukee board also but in 1860 Fred Gottschalk and brother Charles are living with Johann and Sophie Bock. (the same Sophia listed as Mother on 1870 census?)

Do you have a general birth or death date for Fritz since posting? There were notices in the local German language papers for a Fritz Gottschalk in 1904 (69 yr). I also indexed probate notices published later that year for a Friedrich Gottschalk.

There are about 190 occurrences of Gottschalk in the current version of "Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items" (1844-1950).
