Misc. Schubert Records
Sept. 20, 1808
|Family notes say that he was born Sept. 20, 1808 in Kolmar, Posen, Germany (Prussia).|
|Adaline Tagatz wrote: "Johann Ludwig Schubert always told that his mother died after the birth of two or three girls and Johann. His father then married the second wife, step-mother to Johann Ludwig Schubert."
Martin's first wife supposedly died of cholera before Martin brought his family to America.
aka Rosina or Rose
|Family notes say that Martin married Rosina Otto (b.
June 12, 1836, and d. Feb. 17, 1897). Family lore says that
Rosina was widowed and had a daughter named Johana when Martin Schubert married her. Johana shows up on the 1870 census with her mother and Martin (see census entry below).
After Martin Schubert's death, Rosine married Martin Hoffman on Feb. 23, 1881 at the Evangelical Lutheran clergyman's house in Princeton, Green Lake Co., WI. To see misc. Hoffman surname records, go to the Hoffman web page.
Evaline Tagatz wrote: "Great-grandpa Martin Schubert was married only twice. His second wife had a daughter when he married her, and after great-grandpa died, she married a man by the name of Hoffman."
|Child 1 [mother's name unknown]:
|Family notes say that Rosalie married Emil Tashner (a widower at the time who had one daughter who died in Germany). Rosalie
and Emil had a son named Emil Tashner Jr. who was born in Germany
(born Sept. 1869 and died 1901; he married Pauline Krause).
Evaline Tagatz wrote the following: "When he [Emil Jr.] was small, Rosalie had to work and tied Emil to the bedstead so he would be safe while she was at work. When asked if it didn't worry her when she had to leave the child that he might get tangled and maybe injure himself, she said 'we didn't dare think about it. We had to work, and I couldn't do anything else with him.' They moved to America then. Then there were two girls - one died. The other had to get married and moved to Austria, and she went as there were some relatives living there which could have been his family."
The 1880 Federal Census in Crystal Lake, Marquette Co., WI, shows Ludwig Tashner (age 42, farmer, born in Prussia) living with:
|Child 2 [mother's name unknown]:
|Evaline Tagatz wrote that Olga Schubert married Mr. Oehlke. Olga supposedly moved to Austria and believed to later have come to America.|
|Child 3 [mother's name unknown]:
|Family notes say that this child was a girl (name unknown). She apparently became very ill while working in the garden and was taken into the house immediately. She bloated up terribly and soon died. Tradition has it that she died from a sting (perhaps from a bee).|

He was hauling corn in his tractor. Albert was born May 1, 1891 in Richford. The article said that he was the son of of Gustave and Matilda (Brush) Schubert [names as spelled].

|Child 6 [mother - Rosine Otto]:
Adolph Augustus Schubert
b. July 18, 1860
d. Sept. 5, 1926
|Family notes say that Adolph was born July 18, 1860 in Kolmar, Posen, Germany (Prussia). He died Sept. 5, 1926 in Milwaukee, WI. of prostate cancer and uremia. He is buried in the Zion UM Cemetery, Neshkoro, Marquette Co., WI.
His first wife was Amelia G. Shrader (Emilie Schrader or Schroeder, daughter of William Frederic Schrader and Carlina Wilhelmina Boack or Carlina Wilhelmene Boeck). They married on June 4, 1882 in Neshkoro [Vol. 2a, pg. 49]. Adolph went to Milwaukee to a photography school and set up a photography shop in Viola, WI. Adolph and Amelia had a son (Gustavus Adolph Schubert, b. Nov. 20, 1893 in Markesan; d. Oct. 25, 1918 of influenza in LaFarge, WI, buried in Viola Cemetery; married to Mildred Merle Slaback).
Evaline Tagatz wrote: "Adolph's first wife left him; then he married again and had one son who went to Milwaukee, died in his 20s. His second wife left him too. She had children - a boy that was an invalid. Adolph wanted more money for taking care of him, so she left him. Adolph was living alone at Markesan, Green Lake Co., died at Milwaukee of bladder cancer. His nephew, Edward Schubert of Neshkoro, went and got him and the funeral was at Edward's home. He was buried in the EUB (now Methodist) cemetery at Neshkoro. There was an addition to the church and his grave is right behind the church on the north side, near the northwest corner beside a tree."
August is shown on the 1870 census as living with Martin in Crystal Lake; however, he was listed as age 13 that year, which does not match the birth date obtained from other sources (see census entry below).

|Military Service and Misc. Notes:
|Erwin Herman Schubert wrote that Napoleon moved some Germans eastward in settlements, and Martin was in one of those groups near Potsdam (not far from Berlin). Martin, his parents and older sister were in that settlement. Martin moved on. He was drafted into the Prussia army where he supposedly met his wife (a native of Kolmar). After he married her, he was awarded land in the Grabova area (Posen Province). Apparently they had four children, and his wife got homesick at which time they moved to Kolmar. By then the middle daughter had moved to Vienna with her husband from Austria. The youngest child (a teenager) died. A few years later in Kolmar, Martin's wife died of cholera.|
Came to America Aug. 5, 1864
Naturalized in May 1873
|Martin arrived in New York on Aug. 5, 1864 on the ship Europa, which left from Bremen. The ship manifest gave the following details:
Martin's son likely came to America before Martin arrived. For more details about how Mr. Kruger helped fund their immigration and about his son's first known trip to America, go to Johann Ludwig Schubert's web page.
Martin was naturalized in May 1873, but this record was sent to Washington, D.C. prior to 1908 and is presumed lost. [SOURCE: June 5, 2003, letter to Jammie Denin from an archivist in the Polk Library, University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh]

personal property value hard to read but looks like $301). He was
Acquired land in Marquette Co., WI in 1885
Martin Schubert acquired land on Jan. 2, 1885 [Document
No. 15869], through the Wausau Land Office through the Homestead Act of Apr. 24, 1820. The land was 40 acres located in the SE quarter of the NW quarter of Township 17 North, Range 10 East in Section 1 [SOURCE: ancestry.com and
rootsweb.com]. This is in Crystal Lake Township.
A tax deed dated May 25, 1868, in Marquette County shows the SW quarter of Section 2 in Crystal Lake Township went to Martin [Vol. 10, pg. 83, Register of Deeds, Marquette County].
Unexplained Bible Entry
|Erwin Herman Schubert reportedly found a sheet in Ludwig Schubert's Bible that said 'Martin Luther Schubert'and 'Katrina' along with the dates 1745-1816 and the German words geboren, Schwester and Kreiskoln. [SOURCE: Russell Williams] It is speculated that, because they were named in the Bible, they are likely ancestors. I suspect that Kreiskoln refers to a province (Kreis roughly translates to county) in Prussia. Geboren means born.|
Aug. 13, 1878
|Family notes say he died Aug. 13, 1878. Russell Williams wrote that Martin died testate [meaning with a will],
according to a Petition for Appointments of Guardian to
Minors (Marquette Co. Court). The petition says that Adolph
Schubert was 19 years old at the time and Wilhelm Schubert
was 17. It said they had to sell Martin's real estate
to settle the estate. On Feb. 20, 1879, Christof Taggartz,
Marvin Hoffman and August Taggartz [names as transcribed;
I haven't seen the documents myself] were appointed to appraise Martin Schubert's property in "Christel Lake" [Crystal Lake].
The exact location of his burial spot is unknown. Relatives speculate that he may have been buried near the Budsin Church or in the Germania Lutheran Cemetery. Evaline Tagatz wrote: "Mother remembers he was buried near a fence as she and Henry climbed on the fence and thinks she was about 3 or 4 years old. Can't find records - it could have been the Neshkoro or Harrisville minister that buried him. There was no church at Richford then."
