|Bio and Links|
I spent my childhood on a farm in 1950's Brown County, Kansas and was excited at the age of 11 when we moved to the 'big' city(pop. 2500). Today I live near a bigger city, and naturally, I miss the simplicity of life I experienced on that farm. I learned in more recent years that my great grandfather Charles bought that farm in 1904 and gave it to my grandfather Henry. |
Henry and his parents came from Clayton Co., Iowa in 1868, settling on 79 acres of land in northern Brown County. Henry's father, Carl Johann Friedrich Schröder (later known as Charles Schrader), came with his family from Marnitz, Germany in 1853 when he was 16. Henry's mother, Augusta Charlotte Marquardt, came with her family from Neunkirchen, Prussia in 1858 at the age of 15. The two married in February of 1866 in Clayton Co., Iowa, the place they presumably met. They are buried in Pleasant Hill cemetery in Brown County.
My mother's grandparents, Chaffee's, were born in the U.S. You have to go back to my 7th great-grandfather, Thomas, to find the Chaffee who immigrated from England, around 1635. He settled in Mass. and it wasn't until my mother's great grandfather came along that her Chaffee bloodline began to move out of the New England states westward. Mom's grandfather who was born in Indiana in 1845, died in Brown Co., Ks. in 1917. Her father was born in Brown Co. in 1876, died in Lincoln, Neb. My mother was born in Brown Co. in 1916, married my father there in 1937, and they remained in Brown Co. the rest of their lives.

I finally got over there and have entered the people on the list. What was the name you were looking for?
