Subject: [ROOTS-L] Barth obituary, Minnesota, 1927
Date: Tue, 28 Sep 2010 13:22:06 -0700 (PDT)
Seeking the obituary of g-grandmother Christina Barth.
Died Oct. 31, 1927 in Forest Lake, Washington county, Minnesota.
Buried Nov. 7 or 9, 1927 in Forest Lake, Washington county, Minnesota. Do not know where buried.
Her death certificate does not give her residence. Her son, Fred Barth, of Forest Lake, is listed as the informant.
She was born about 1848 in Germany.
Death cert. indicates she was a widow, so her husband, Daniel, died somewhere between 1888 and 1927 but do not know when or where.
They had at least 10 children: Jacob Peter b 1872, Peter Jacob and twin Karolina born 1873 (she died age 1 month), Friedrich Wilhelm b 1875, Karoline b 1879, Christian b 1881, all born in Germany. Henry b 1882, Fred b 1884, William b 1886, Lena b 1889, believe all born in Illinois.
Daniel and Christina Barth must have lived in Illinois for some time, and may have lived in Wisconsin, Iowa, and/or Minnesota.
Have not found Daniel and Christina in any census records, but have found some of their children in the 1900, 1910, 1920, 1930 records. He arrived in USA 1881, she 1882.
Would very much appreciate anyone who can locate an obituary for Christina Barth, or any information or suggestions/comments concerning this family.
Thank you all, and everyone have a great day!
