said he was born at or near Kolmar, Posen Province, Prussia [SOURCE: Jammie Dennin].
The 1920 Federal Census said that Alvina B.'s parents' [which would be Ludwig and his wife] were born in Schnida, Germany (see census information under Alwina Bertha Schubert's entry below).
Father: Adolph Martin Schubert; mother unknown
|Family notes say that his father was

|Maria Julianna Schubert's obituary
said that she was married to Mr. John Ludwig Schubert by
Rev. Alwart on Feb. 23, 1870. A transcription online of the
Marquette County Pre-1907 Marriages on rootsweb.com said that
Johann Ludwig Schubert married
Julia Wichner on Feb. 22, 1870 (Vol. 1, Pg. 120, Certificate #770). The two sources are one day apart.
The 1870 Census said that Lewis married his wife Julia in Feb. 1870 (see census entry below).
Adaline Tagatz wrote: "Johann Ludwig Schubert made his home at the home of Jakob Martin Wichner and Mary (Mittelstaedt) Wichner, the parents of his future wife, and worked at different places until he had the indebtedness paid off of the funds advanced for his emigration to U.S.A."

Notes left by Evaline Tagatz said: "Julius Henry (Heinrich) Schubert, born July 29, 1872, died 1943 (not married). (His gravestone says 1873 which is incorrect. [This is Evaline's note.]).. [He] worked on farms and invented useful articles and machinery. He could play a violin (fiddle). After he heard a tune he could play it. He had very little schooling. They lived so far from the schoolhouse - in fall and spring he had to stay home and help his father on the farm, and in the winter it was difficult to walk so far in the cold over the snow banks."
Henry appears as age 7 on the 1880 Federal Census as living with his parents (see census details).
The 1930 Federal Census in Richford, Waushara Co., WI, said Henry J. Schubert (age 47, single) was a hired man living with Emil R. Denna [or Dennu] (age 45, farmer) and Emil's wife Martha E. (age 46) and son Ervin E. (age 7).

For misc. Dahlke records, go to the Dahlke web page. Herman lived in Hales Corners and had at least five children.
The 1910 Federal Census in Richford, Waushara County, WI, shows Herman Schubert as head of household. He was the right age to be Johann Ludwig's son. Herman (age 30, born in Wis., parents born in Germany, farmer, married 7 years, on his first marriage). He was living with:
Son Allen: A newspaper clipping obit (undated & source unlabeled) in my files says that Lt. Allen H. Schubert (age 26, Hales Corners) died in an automobile accident at Monterey, CA. He was a Navy Air Corps officer who was made a full lieutenant about three weeks before he died. He was stationed at a Navy post graduate school at Monterey. He was born in Hales Corners, attended Boys' Technical High School and enlisted in the Navy Air Corps in 1943. He served 18 months at Guam during World War II and received an ensign's commission at the Pensacola, Florida, base. Survivors: his parents (Mr. and Mrs. Fred Schubert in Hales Corners), brother Elmer Schubert (Milwaukee), brother Erwin Schubert (Hales Corners), Alvin Schubert (Hales Corners) and a sister Mrs. Anita Krumsee (Hales Corners).

He was the brother-in-law of Richard Krumsee. The obit mentions Madeline and Mary Schubert but the relationship is unclear. Funeral services were held at the Jackson Park Evangelical Lutheran Church (4535 W. Oklahoma Ave.), Rev. Warren F. Zemlick officiating. He was interred at Highland Memorial Park. He was a member of the pension club of Heil Co. and Eagles.

Otto August Schubert
b. Sept. 3, 1883;
d. Aug. 28, 1968
|Family notes say Otto was born Sept. 3, 1883 in Richford,
Waushara Co., WI, at 10 uhr abens (10 at night) and died Aug. 28, 1968 in Fond du Lac's St. Agnes Hospital. His obituary said he was buried in the Rienzi Cemetery. He had worked in a barber shop in Neshkoro, was a banker in Stevens
Point 1914-1917, a cashier at Farmers Exchange Bank in Pipe, WI, manager of Savings Dept. of National Exchange Bank (1923-1934) in Fond du Lac. He moved back to Pipe, purchased and operated a grocery store until his retirement in 1947.

Alwine Berrta Schubert
aka Alvina Bertha or Alvena
b. Feb. 20, 1885;
d. Mar. 12, 1935
|Family notes say she was born Feb. 20, 1885 in Richford, Waushara Co., WI, on Freitag, halb 8 Morgen (Friday morning).
Russell Williams wrote that Alvina/Alvine Bertha Schubert
was baptized at the Westfield Lutheran Church on Mar. 27, 1885.
Sponsors were Maria Kroll, Julius Rux and Friedrich Brizke.
Alvena was shown in the 1900 and 1905 census with her parents (see census entry).
Alwine Bertha Schubert married Emil Hermann Strohschein (or Stroeschein) on Aug. 21, 1906 in Westfield, Marquette Co., WI [Vol. 3, pg. 231]. Emil was born Mar. 15, 1882, and died Mar. 12, 1935 in the Town of Coloma, WI. Family notes say she had no children. Russell Williams wrote that her husband was the son of Johan and Justine (Roehlke) Strohashein [as is common in many records, surname spellings are inconsistent].
Fran Sprain wrote about the Stroschein family in her book Places and Faces in Marquette County, Wis. - Vol. II. It said that Emil was age 3 when he came to America with his 5-year-old sister Augusta, their mother Justina and Justina's mother (surname Pehlke). Emil's father, John, checked out America first in 1882. John was a carpenter and cobbler. They settled east of Fenner Lake in Marquette County. Justina was a seamstress. John and Justina had more children in Wisconsin - Robert and William. Emil was a streetcar conductor in Milwaukee, a farmer in Coloma and a storekeeper in Packwaukee. Fran's book includes more details about how the Stroschein family lived.

Earnest E. Schubert's tombstone in the Richford Cemetery, Waushara Co., WI, said he lived from 1887-1900. [SOURCE: Cemetery transcription by Wayne Guyant in 1977]
Aug. 5, 1864 with his parents, although it appears he may have first arrived in 1863
|Ludwig Schubert arrived in New York on Aug. 5, 1864 on the ship Europa, which left from Bremen. He was listed as age 17 on the ship manifest. Other family members immigrating with Ludwig were:
This may not be his first trip to America. A letter from Adaline Tagatz to her sister Evaline Tagatz said: "I looked through the books on Otto's shelf and also found some information in Otto's Bible... In another book was the following: 'Ludvig Schubert aus Wischin Holland Deutschland nach America in 1863.' I gather this is the year Ludvig Schubert emigrated to America on the S.S. via Holland-Germany."
Could Ludwig have came to America in 1863 to check things out and then returned for his family the next year? The 1900 & 1930 Census said he immigrated in 1863 and the 1920 Census said 1864 (see census entries below). The last sentence in the following note suggests this may be the case:
Evaline Tagatz wrote: "Chas. Dahlke's wife was Grandpa Schubert's aunt. [For misc. Dahlke records, go to the Dahlke web page. My Great-Aunt Adaline Tagatz wrote: "Grandfather Schubert and Gust Dahlke were first cousins, which makes Walter mother's second cousin...."]
The 1905 Wisconsin Census in Markesan, Green Lake County, WI, shows an August Dahlke. Could this be the Chas. Dahlke mentioned above?:
My grandmother also wrote that Chris Mueller's mother was Grandpa's aunt. Ludwig Schubert lived with Mrs. Koats (Krueger); Ludwig Kruger was Grandpa Schubert's cousin. His father, Grandpa's cousin brought Grandpa to America. Grandpa's parents came to America later."
She also wrote that he was thought to be age 16 when he immigrated. She wrote: "Grandpa John Ludwig Schubert and Gustav Schubert came to America on money which their uncle, Mr. Krueger, sent them. Grandpa paid back the money for his trip to Mr. Krueger. Kruger had children: Mrs. Koats, Minnie Kruger and Ernest who married Emma Fierke." Gustav Schubert was Ludwig's half brother.
A note found in my Great-aunt Adaline Tagatz's records also say that Johann and his half brother Gustave Schubert had their trip to America financed by an uncle. In the margin it says "Uncle Rudolph Krueger."
Ludwig Schubert applied for naturalization in May 1970, but this record is lost. [SOURCE: June 5, 2003, letter to Jammie Denin from an archivist in the Polk Library, University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh]
It is interesting to note that Ludwig Schubert and his family were listed next to a Kruger family on the same ship manifest. This may (or may not) be the Kruger family that helped the Schuberts come to America. A note left by my Great-aunt Adaline Tagatz suggests that Rudolph Krueger was the uncle who financed Johann's trip to America. The Kruger family on the same ship as Ludwig Schubert may be related in some way to Rudolph. These individuals were:
