Posted by: Marilyn Roth (ID *****9310) Date: October 28, 2009 at 09:41:56
In Reply to: Re: Texas Quast Family by Roy Allen Quast of 164 pilot site has the death certificate for Henry C. QUAST (16 Oct. 1836, Germany - 19 Apr. 1920, bu. Oak Grove) son of Christian QUAST.

Augusta BITNER is named as mother on the death certificate of Frederick Wm. QUAST (7 Sep. 1876 - 13 Jan. 1945).

In Precinct 3, Lavaca, TX, 1880, QUAST
Henry, 44, wf. Augusta, 34, ch. John, 15; Matilda, 13; & Louisa, 10, all b. Prussia
Ch. b. TX: Wm., 7; Vilhelmena, 5; Frederick, 3; Henry, 5 mos.

Some records are online for Holy Cross Lutheran, Yoakum, DeWitt, TX. Records are a bit difficult to decipher, but I think this is what is meant:


Wilhelm Fritz QUAST, b. 15 Feb. 1906, Hardin Co., TX; bpt. 30 Dec. 1906, Yoakum, son of Wilhelm QUAST & Emma HERDER. Godparents Heinr., Auguste, & ida QUAST.

Adam August FRANK, b. 21 Nov 1904, DeWitt Co., bpt. 10 March 1907, son of August FRANK & Amalia QUAST. Godparents Friedrich, Maria, & Hulda QUAST

Heinrich Karl FRANK, b. 4 Dec. 1905, Lav. Co., bpt. 10 Mar. 1907, DeWitt Co., s/o August FRANK & Amalia QUAST. Godparents Heinrich & Auguste QUAST & Wilhelm & Louise FRANK.

Hubert Fritz FRANK, b. 24 Oct 1906, bpt. 10 Mar. 1907, DeWitt Co., s/o Wilhelm FRANK & Louise SCHMETT. Godparents Friedrich QUAST & August & Amalia FRANK.

This is not my family. I'm trying to help identify the father of two sisters listed on the 1880 census of Woodford Co., IL, as Anna E., 11, & Otilie, 7, QUASET. I can find no records for QUASET, so I wonder whether the name was QUAST. Anna & Otilie were in the household of Andrew KUNKEL / KUNKLE & Elisabetha. Andrew and parents, Adam & Margaret, were of Woodford Co., IL, in 1860; then of Marshall Co., IL, 1870, when Andrew's wife was Christina. Then, he had returned to Woodford Co. by 1880. Children in 1870 were Prosper and Rosie, and in 1880, Bross & Rosina. So, my "needle in a haystack" is a male QUASET (or some similar name) who died in the vicinity of Woodford Co., IL, after the birth of Otilda/Otilie, ca. 1873. Otilda was called stepdaughter of Andrew KUNKLE in 1900, Platte Co., NE. Ken WILTZ of Illinois says Adam KUNKEL's wife was Maggie BETNER [BITNER?].
