GENEALOGY - LETTERS - SCHROEDER, NAEFKE, Reading Township in Calhoun county Iowa.

Multiple names in the same surnames can get so confusing. I can see why the Germans had to be so organized due to the fact that there might have been five Heinrich Schroeder in the same house and maybe twenty on the same block. The following letters are from Queries about the Schroeder names found at

Leona and Hilda SCHROEDER
(granddaughters of Heinrich SCHROEDER)
lived in Farnhamville, Iowa at the times of their deaths
in 2004 and 1988, respectively.
An obituary on Clarence SCHROEDER, their brother,
indicated that he had farmed in Reading Township,Calhoun county Iowa.

I have no information of the NAEFKE family
other than Dora having married Henry SCHROEDER.

I don't have any information on towns for the
Schroeders in Germany, other than the Marsala passenger list specifying Oldendorf.

Surnames: Schroeder Onken Oade

I have a Henry Schroeder born in 1895.

Henry's parents were Carl SCHROEDER
& Dora OADE, and his wife was Bessie M. ONKEN.
He disappeared in the 1930s though, so there wasn't any records of him around then.
No, mine is a different Henry. My Henry SCHROEDER was
born in Germany in about 1839. He had a son named Henry,
but he was born in 1874 (too early for your Henry).
The younger Henry married Doretta (Dora) NAEFKE, and their only son was Clarence, born in 1919.
Could this be your Henry?

The Names are there. "One only has to begin to look".
