The database of the 1930 census has in Brookings Co., SD, SCHLOTTMAN (with approximate year of birth):

Louis E., 1877
Florence, 1883
Marie, 1903
Ruby, 1909
Luella, 1913
Mildred, 1918
Victor, 1922
Eldridge, 1925.

Louis is on the Social Security Death Index (3 July 1876 - Sep. 1968), SSN issued CA, last residences DeSoto & Victory, Vernon Co., WI. That looks as if he returned to his birth place.

FamilySearch, 1880, Wheatland, Vernon, WI:

SCHLOTTMANN, Fred, 37, farmer, b. Prussia, father born Macklenburg {sic, Mecklenburg}.
Wife Eva, 39, she & parents b. Prussia.
Children b. Wisconsin (spelled as listed):
Fred, 11
Nic, 9
Chrls, 6
Louis, 3
George, 1
Mother Lina, 72, Prussia.

Mecklenburg comes from Mikilenburg, which means big castle. Boundaries were always changing, but here is one listing of the boundaries: Lower Saxony and Holstein on the west, the Elbe River on the southwest, Recknitz & Trebil Rivers on the east, and the Baltic Sea on the north.

Vernon Co., WI, Tombstone Inscriptions, Walnut Mound, Sterling Twp.
SCHLOTTMAN, Louis (1876 - 1968)
wf. Florence E. [COLE] (1883 - 1969)
dau. Bonnie (27 Feb. 1915 - Mar. 1915)

Thanks for posting! Yes, this is the correct Friedrich Schlottman. Are the people listed at the top of your post his children? Charles is my great-grandfather. I see he is listed in the second set of names. He was born in 1873. Do you perhaps know the maiden of Lina? We cannot figure it out.
Thank you for providing the locations of some of the family burials. I am always interested to see where the family members are buried.
I appreciate all your generous help! Thanks so much!

Lisa, you're welcome. Regarding the 1930 Census for Louis, the information I listed is all the database has. From what I can see, it looks as if that's Louis with his wife and children. Notice the approximate years of birth. Compare with the Vernon Co., WI, 1880 Census, when Louis was 3, and the Tombstone Inscription, Louis (1876 - 1968).

I think that John J. (ca. 1793 - 1873) was father of Friedrich A. SCHLOTTMAN(N), b. ca. 1843, who had children as of 1880: Fred, Nic, Charles, Louis, & George.

Check with Jerry and Mickie Parr who post on the Vernon Co., WI, site to see whether they can identify Lina (probably a shortened version of Evangelina or Magdalena).

Can you add information about Charles SCHLOTTMAN?

I was just wondering if they were his children because a lot of times, Charles isn't listed with the other children and I don't know why that is. John... or Johann Schlottmann as I think he was known before he came to this country... is also buried at Walnut Mound. I believe it is he who changed the name to Schlottman from Schlottmann. Lina is a shortened version of Carolina. She's buried next to John at Walnut Mound. There is a photo of their stone attached.

Charles Schlottman was born in 1873, died in 1961, and is buried at Elm Lawn Cemetery in Elmhurst, Illinois. He was married to Grace Barker. They were parents to Madeline (Holliday), Donald, Evelyn (Sinibaldi), Fred and Ernest. Fred died when he was 8 years old. Charles drank water from a creek and got typhoid and became deaf.

I have found a relative on the Internet who is great-grandson to Friedrich and he doesn't know if he is buried in a cemetery or on a family farm.

Most of these people I have talked about are on

Are you related to any Schlottmans?

I was able to see the photo of the stone, but I was unable to read it. Were you able to read dates for Lina? FindaGrave says (1808 - 1880).

Vernon Co., WI, Tombstone Inscriptions has only these with John J. SCHLOTTMANN, who d. 9 Jan. 1874, 79-5-14 (so born ca. 26 July 1794):
Lina, d. 18 Apr. 1869, aged 1 yr., 10 mos.
John, d. 30 May 1870, 1 mo.
children of J. J., no dates
Eva Port (8 Feb. 1841 - 11 Dec. 1910), mother
Lena S. DELK (1882 - 1971).

Lena S. would be Magdalena [SCHLOTTMAN] DELK. Lina, d. 1869, & John, d. 1870, must be children of Friedrich & Eva.

I didn't include those before because my message was getting very long and complicated.

RootsWeb Family Trees has a file by Brent Schlottman, who says he has a copy of the marriage record of Friedrich A. SCHLOTTMAN, b. 1 Jan. 1843, Verchen, Pommern, & Eva PORT (8 Feb. 1841, Prussia - 11 Dec. 1910), d/o Niclaus PORT, b. 11 Feb. 1810? & Mary Magdalena DAVID, b. "Aug in Eimeren, Germany." Marriage was 20 Nov. 1866, Milwaukee. The list of the children on the file is

Lena / Lina {must have been b. June 1867, d. 18 Apr. 1869}
Fred G., b. July 1868 {fits, 11 on census--supposedly dated as of June 1880}
John, b . 1870 { must have been b. Apr. 1870 & d. May 1870 }
Nicholas, b. Oct. 1871 {Oct. 1870 if 9 in 1880)
Louis Elmer, b. 3 July 1876 {fits, 3 in 1880)
George Donald, b. 26 Dec. 1879 {Dec. 1878 if already 1 in 1880). The file doesn't have Charles, but he was on the 1880 Census with the family.

As far as I know, I'm not related to the SCHLOTTMAN family. My father's ancestors all lived in Vernon County at one point: COOK(E), GREEN, GROVES, SHANER, & STARK.

The occasion of the 1866 marriage of Friedrich Schlottman & Eva Port was published in local German newspapers. These were brief notices (some with wedding verses) placed in the papers, most likely by the ministers - but not like the later lists compiled from the Registrar's office. Contact me for more information.
