There’s nothing like the feeling of solving a mystery like the one about the biological family of my husband’s grandmother Louise Reynolds. Born in October of 1911, she was given up for adoption.

A wonderful couple, William Dennis Matthews and his wife Claudia adopted her and a little boy, William Dennis Matthews, Jr.

 

The Matthews family: adopted Louise Froemling, biological granddaughter of prominent Busse and Froemling families.
The Matthews family: William, William Jr., Louise and Claudia.

She grew up never knowing about her biological family. After her death, however, papers and artifacts were discovered in an old suitcase and among them were notes written in Louise’s own hand about her research into her biological family, which turned out to include the prominent Busse and Froemling families of Chicago.

No one knew she was even interested, much less pursued it. I guess it shouldn’t be a surprise, though.

She used this information to order a copy of her birth registration below.

This small clip of paper consists of the notes taken by Louise while researching her birth.

I located the actual family quite a while ago through censuses and other documents.

Since then, I managed to expand on that information to include the fact that, based on her biological mother being recorded as Emma Mary Froemling.

Born 29 December 1884 in Illinois, Emma’s parents (Louise’s biological grandparents) were August and Johanna (Busse) Froemling.

August was born 17 Aug 1855 to Henry and Caroline Froemling.

Johanna was born 2 Aug 1855 in Elk Grove, Cook County, Illinois, and her parents were Christian and Fredericka (Henjes) Busse.

I have placed images of the tombstones for August and Johanna (Busse) Froemling and Christian and Fredericka (Henjes) Busse.

August died 20 Jan 1919 in Cook County, Illinois and Johanna died 19 Feb 1940 at Elk Grove.

Christian Busse died 24 Mar 1909 in Elk Grove and Fredericka died in 8 Sep 1911, also in Elk Grove, Illinois.

Considering that almost everything of importance in this family took place in Elk Grove, it’s a great example of how large a world it was for small farming families such as the Busse’s and Froemlings – and how hard it was for them to travel or move very far from home.

While researching newspaper articles for another family related to my husband, Mark, I happened upon a treasure trove of articles about all of these members of his family.

Busse, Johann and Hanna - Tombstone.

Froemling, August and Johanna - Tombstone

I have included the most enlightening of them here.

As I actually clipped over two dozen, it seemed appropriate to whittle those down to just the most important and informative clippings.

The clips range from business ads to wedding announcements, death notices, obituaries, gossip column entries and newspaper articles.

What I have learned about this family from these newspaper clippings is that they were considered to be of good German stock, having settled in and pioneered the area of Elk Grove, Cook County, Illinois.

Busse; Car Delivery
Description of William Busse and his son delivering a new car to a customer as printed in The Daily Herald of Chicago of 23 Apr 1915.

An interesting fact about the Busse and Froemling families is they were well entrenched in transportation sales of one sort or another.

Their business interests spanning the fading of the horse as transportation and the inception of the automobile – as indicated in these two advertisements.

Christian was a Republican and served his community in numerous capacities including on the State Board of Equalization, Supervisor of Elk Grove.

The patriarch of the family, Johann Friedrich Busse and his wife Johanna (Hanna), immigrated with Christian and two of Christian’s brothers and two sisters, one brother having previously immigrated on his own.

Froemling, Oltrogge Wedding
Busse-Oltrogge as described in the 27 Dec 1918 article of the Chicago Daily Herald.

Christian was a Republican who served his community in numerous capacities including on the State Board of Equalization, Supervisor of Elk Grove.

His son August was the grandfather of my husband’s Grandma Louise Reynolds as mentioned above.

There is frequent mention of some of August’s children in numerous of the dozens of clippings I’ve saved.

Tidbits of information include illnesses, school news, work history, social activities, etc.

The most prominent of these occasions, of course, were the weddings.

The Oltrogge – Froemling wedding was the marriage of August’s daughter Selma and John Oltrogge.

Busse, Albert and Schaeffer, Emma; Marriage Announcement
Marriage of Martha Froemling and Albert E. Busse, taken from The Daily Herald (Chicago, Illinois) 6 Oct 1915.

County Commissioner William Busse was the son of Christian’s brother Louis, and led a very distinguished career and professional life.

Besides his high profile life and career, he ran a highly contested (and some say crooked) race for Mayor of Chicago.

I will write later this week about this race and the no holds barred lawsuit it led to.

Here are two wedding announcements published by William Busse.

One is the announcement of the marriage of his son Albert E. Busse to Emma Schaeffer.

The second is concerning the marriage of his daughter Martha to Albert Frederick Froemling, the son of August Froemling.

It appears they liked to keep it in the family.

Froemling, Harvey; Death from AppendicitisIn 1916, August Froemling’s grandson, son of Albert Frederick and Martha, died of appendicitis.

Sadly, August Froemling passed on 20 Jan 1919 and this is his obituary from The Daily Herald of Chicago.

It is not clear what the reasons are, but soon after, his 31 acre farm was put up for auction, scheduled to sell 10 Jul 1920.

Froemling, August; Obituary; August 1919
Obituary of August Froemling from the Daily Herald of Chicago of 31 Jan 1919.
Froemling; Farm Auction
Article from the Daily Herald of Chicago, announcing the auction of the farm of August Froemling after his death. The sale took place 9 Jul 1920.

There is no evidence of financial troubles in the newspaper accounts I’ve collected. Therefore, I can only assume the sale was to abide by his will and was to be divided among his immediate family.

I’d love to find his will to either prove or disprove my assumption.

As I’ve written in previous posts, much of human history has involved the management of relationships, marriages, etc. to safeguard against incestuous relationships, and has resulted in an impressive genealogy obsession in Iceland.
Genealogy obsession in Iceland
Genealogy obsession in Iceland opens academic doors.

Iceland, with its population of only 320,000, is one small corner of the globe that still deals with the issues of living in the shallow end of the gene pool, manifesting in today’s Icelanders’ preoccupation with genealogy and family history.

In one instance, a group of students from the University of Iceland engineering department created a smart phone app, allowing users to simply bump phones to see if they have a common ancestor, as well as if there’s a relationship and just how close it is.

Prior to the smart phone app, the “Book of Icelanders” (Islendingabok), has been the receptacle of genealogy records. Kári Stefánsson, an Icelandic neurologist, created a web-based version of the “Book of Icelanders” to provide constant access to its users. Kári Stefánsson and Fridrik Skulason claim to have documented 95% of Icelanders of the past three hundred years.

A benefit of the impressive job Icelanders have done tracing their family genealogies, is the extensive collection of data available for studies and experiments in many  disciplines including science, social studies, health and genetics.

Another example of the benefits of pursuing genealogy was described in my previous post “Owning a home: Military least likely and fire fighters more likely to own”. In this case, a statistical analysis of census data by Ancestry.com provided data to study home ownership trends over the past century.

Although the thoughts of the current and future benefits of genealogical study are pleasant ones, consider the negative – how would such caches of genealogical information have been used during WWII in Germany? The thought is truly frightening.

After almost twenty years of genealogy research, there are certain sites that have become my ‘go to’ sites for certain aspects of my genealogy research. I thought it might be helpful for me to post my list of my top ten genealogy and ancestry websites.
Internet Archive
Internet Archive Search

I have also included a description of the reasons why these sites have proved invaluable to me. If you’re looking for information in these areas, be sure to check out these sites.

The headings are links to the sites described and paid sites are indicated by ($) following the heading.

1.  FamilySearch.org

Maintained and updated by the LDS (Latterday Saints) Church, this site has been invaluable for all of my time researching my family’s genealogy. In the past few years in particular, the databases have expanded substantially as the LDS organization works to digitize more and more information. Recently, the search feature has become much more effective and accurate. No matter what country, region or time frame you are researching, this is a wonderful site. Best of all, it is free.

2.  Ancestry.com

Ancestry.com is a favorite for all of the reasons listed for FamilySearch.org, the only difference being that a paid subscription is required. Although I do use Ancestry.com a great deal, I plan my research so I don’t have to remain subscribed all of the time. As I research and find gaps, I keep a ‘to do’ list and when it is large enough to warrant the cost, I will subscribe for as long as I think is necessary, tackle my list, and cancel the subscription when I have completed my list. It has been almost a year since I last subscribed because I’ve been finding a substantial amount of information elsewhere. I am due to subscribe pretty soon to tackle my current ‘to do’ list.

If you’re looking for one paid site that provides extensive data from around the world, this is the one.

3.  Cyndi’s List

Cyndi’s List is the largest site that offers extensive links to genealogy sites and resources on the internet. Cyndi has worked tirelessly for decades creating this site of over 300,000 links – sorted, categorized and constantly updated to maintain currency and functionality.

Recently, however, Cyndi’s List has been the target of a hacker who stole her entire site, making minor changes to ‘make it their own’ and attempting to divert revenue to themselves. Be sure the site you’re visiting is actually Cyndi’s List and help protect her extensive investment and our valuable resource.

4.  Olive Tree Genealogy

Olive Tree Genealogy is an extensive portal of links to valuable data and genealogy research information around the world. Although I do find this site somewhat confusing and difficult to navigate, my investment of time and effort has proved valuable as I have found wonderful, obscure data that I was unable to find elsewhere.

5.  Foundation for Medieval Genealogy

You should have seen my surprise when my husband’s ancestry connected directly to nobles and royalty in the medieval period. For the longest time this was a vast brick wall for me as there is very little quality data available online for researching this time.

I can’t remember how I found this site, but it’s an amazing resource as it’s extensively researched and sourced. The sources are described in detail and where there are questions about the data, they make it clear so we can note these gaps and questions in our own research. Where they have drawn conclusions from the existing evidence they examine the evidence and describe their conclusions.

6.  Directory of Royal Genealogical Data: University of Hull

This is another well researched site about royal genealogy from the University of Hull in England that also covers the medieval period, but they are not as clear about the quality of their sources, the evidence they’ve used to form their conclusions and the reasons they formed the conclusions leading to the published genealogy.

7.  Internet Archive

Besides finding and sourcing dates and events, I also enjoy finding the details of the lives of our ancestors through written accounts. Access to these publications has helped immensely with writing this blog by enabling me to understand the circumstances and times in which our ancestors lived.

Internet Archive tops Google E-Books on this list because it is totally free.

8.  Google E-Books

Google E-Books is essentially a site offering paid and free access to public domain written materials and books with a very accurate, intuitive search feature. If you use the link in the heading, however, it is possible to search only titles available for free access and download. To find free titles, be sure to check ‘Full View’ when conducting a search.

9.  Rootsweb

This is a free site offered by Ancestry.com . It’s a valuable resource for providing free access to user input data and family trees. Although I don’t entirely trust the data offered on this site for the simple reason that it is made up from ‘user input’, it has been very valuable to me when encountering those frustrating brick walls. I use the information here as ‘clues’ which have helped me break through those brick walls.

This data is recognizable in my Blythe Database because I do not enter sources or indicate very poor quality sources. Those using my database should interpret these facts as questionable at best.

10.  GeneaBloggers

GeneaBloggers was the genius idea of offering a directory of genealogy blogs. When I have some time on my hands and just want to explore what others are doing and saying, I start at GeneaBloggers.

Have fun checking out these sites!

I have long been fascinated by the news of events regarding the finding, genetic studying and reburying of King Richard III’s remains.

I have written a couple of posts regarding the search for, discovery and excavation of his burial site under the parking lot of the Greyfriars Abbey in Leicester.

The posts were:

Richard III's final resting place is decided.
Richard III’s final resting place is decided.

A later article on the Archives UK blog does a great job of describing “the depth of feeling generated on both sides of a court battle over the re-burial of the body of King Richard III.”

The dispute arose between the University of Leicester and a group of Richard’s distant relatives, the Plantagenet Alliance, arguing over whether Richard III wished to be buried in York or the grounds where his remains were found.

The evidence brought forth on both sides is clearly described in the Archives UK post and since they have done such a good job, I feel it would be redundant and a huge waste of time for me to try to write a less informative article.

To read their detailed account, the blog post can be found on the Archives UK site.

CHILDREN (all baptized St Albans, Hertfordshire):

i WILLIAM, bp. 2.5 June 1587 [St Albans PR 25]; m. St Albans 6 July 1607 Alice Denton [St Albans PR 140].

ii WALTER, bp. 1 June 1589 [St Albans PR 28]; no further record.

iii ROBERT, bp. 21 February 1590/1 [St Albans PR 29]; no further record.

iv JOAN, bp. 2.5 June 1592 [St Albans PR 30]; In. (1) St Albans 23 October 1609 Thomas Lawrence [St Albans PR 141]; m. (2.) by 1628 JOHN TUTTLE [TAG 51: 173].

v ELIZABETH, bp. 6 August 1598 [St Albans PR 35]; presumably she who m. St Albans 5 May 1617 John Cowley [St Aibans PR 144].

vi HENRY, bp. 25 April 1600 [St Albans PR 36]; bur. St Albans 14 June 1602 [St Albans 196].

ASSOCIATIONS: Through her daughter, Joan (Antrobus) (Lawrence) Tuttle, this immigrant was ancestress of several members of the Tuttle, Lawrence and Giddings families (see sketches of JOHN TUTTLE, GEORGE GIDDINGS, JOHN LAWRENCE, THOMAS LAWRENCE and WILLIAM LAWRENCE).

In his will of 27 January 1664[/5], “William Antrobus of London Esq.” bequeathed to “William Antrobus in New England the sum of forty shillings for a legacy and that is all he shall have out of my estate” [PCC 11 Hyde]. Sir Reginald Antrobus suggests that this may be the William Antrobus baptized at St Albans 7 April 1611, son of William Antrobus [St Albans PR 46; Antrobus Pedigrees 34, 108], and therefore nephew of Joan (Arnold) Antrobus [Antrobus Pedigrees 12-13, 96]. But the testator of 1665 and the William baptized in 1611 were third cousins once-removed, so the legatee may be another William more closely related to the testator.

COMMENTS: On 2. April 1635, “Joan Antrobuss,” aged 65, was enrolled at London, with a certificate of conformity “from the minister of St Albans, Hertfordshire,” as a passenger for New England on the Planter [Hotten 45]. No record of Joan Antrobus has been found in New England. She may have chosen at the last minute not to make the trip, or she may have died

aboard ship. It she did make the passage to New England, she probably resided in Ipswich with her daughter and son-in-law.

BIBLIOGRAPHIC NOTE: In 1929 Sir Reginald L. Antrobus published extensive information on the Antrobus families of England, including data relating to the branch of interest to us here [Sir Reginald L. Antrobus, /introbus Pedigrees: The Story of a Cheshire Family (London 192.9), 12-13, 96-9’7 (cited above as Antrobus Pedigrees)].

Mrs. Mary Frances Foulke, widow of George Foulke, passed away at an early hour Sunday morning in the home of her daughter, Mrs. Grace Robbins, seven miles east of Arcadia.

She leaves besides the daughter at whose home she died, two other daughters, Mrs. Alice Phillips, of west of Arcadia, and Mrs. Sarah Ross, residing on road 31, and stepson Alvin Foulke, west of Cicero. She also leaves several grandchildren.
