Ludvig RIECK Dane Co., WI
Posted by: Cynthia (ID *****2046) Date: February 18, 2005 at 22:40:42
  of 162

I am a direct descendant of Ludvig Rieck and Amelia Rieck. I am interested in corresponding with other descendants of this line:


Descendants of Ludvig Rieck


Generation No. 1

1. LUDVIG1 RIECK was born 21 Oct 1792 in Furstenwerder, and died 11 Sep 1876 in Dane County, Wisconsin. He married AMELIE RIECK Bef. 1832. She was born 1799 in Mecklenburg, and died in Dane County, Wisconsin.

Notes for LUDVIG RIECK:
Emilie Rieck Schulz's brother Herman (I assume he was) lived in Marxville and b.15 August 1825 d. 27 Mar 1825 (St. John's Berry death record p. 224. Ludvig Rieck, born October 21, 1792 in Furstenwerden, (with 2 dots over the u) (Hermans death record by Brandenburg) Kingdom of Prussia - died September. 11, 1876. They are buried in the Sunning Hill Cemetery, Township of Berry There is also a Carl Schultz


1860 Federal Census, Wisconsin, Dane, Springfield image # 22. August Rivert must have been a saloon keeper in Springfield and Carl was living in their household. It didn't list what work he did. The index shows him there in 1855. Every time I locate him his last name is spelled different.

Carl is living with some relatives most likely. And it would have been taken just a few months after Emilie's death. In the 1860 census, Carl, 6, was my gggrandfather. And the daughter, 4, Emily, was the same on the 1870 census only it was spelled Amelia. The 1860 census says Prussia; the 1870 census shows Mecklenburg, If I remember correctly. I know it is Mecklenburg on every thing after that.

Virgil Matz writes:
On the farm that I was born was a cemetery with about 30 burials. It is now overgrown with brush and only a few markers left. One of the burials was Mary Riewert (nee Niendorf) 1841-1878. Wife of A. Riewert.
I also have new plat maps. It would take some research as to where the houses were. A four lane highway is going through their property at the present. It is going on the south side of the east/west road in Springfield. The cemetery is the small triangle in the NW corner of Sec. 6.

I forgot to mention that I copied the St. John's Records. There are no death records if Carl died between 1880 and June 7, 1882. They must have been recorded in some other church. I couldn't locate any baptism, conformation or marriages for any Schulz's.

Cynthia Writes:

The Lutheran Church is a big surprise to me. Carl Jr. and his wife, Barbara Wagner, (Peter and Anna Wagner) raised their children Roman Catholic. it is possible that Carl Schulz's family was Lutheran and he married Barbara Wagner who was Roman Catholic. I can get the ELCA records for St. John's Lutheran Church in Springfield to find out the location of the old records). The first church was a log church; and the cemetery was in Springfield Township. The second one, a small stone church and cemetery was in Dane Township where the cemetery still is. The first cemetery is over grown with no markers unless buried. This is where Emilie would be buried. The third church, a wood frame church was built is Roxbury Township. The church is no longer there. At the closing of the church it was with St. John's Berry and St. Paul's Marxville. The records are located at St. Paul's Lutheran Church, 8748 Hwy 19, Mazomanie, Wisconsin 53560 Parish Phone 608-767-2274 Pastor Jerry Schara. His Email is jlschara@tds.net

Geb. means 'born' Rieck, or 'nee' Rieck. There were other Riecks also. The Golz's may be a sister of Carl Schulz, Sr. Or that could have been Emilie's maiden name. I don't think they used the patronymic naming system in Germany/Prussia like Scandinavia. There was no Germany back then. It was kingdoms, dukedom, etc.

Emilie Rieck Schulz's brother Herman (I assume he was) lived in Marxville and b.15 August 1825 d. 27 Mar 1825 (St. John's Berry death record p. 224. Ludvig Rieck, born October 21, 1792 in Furstenwerden, (with 2 dots over the u) (Hermans death rec. by Brandenburg) Kingdom of Prussia - died September. 11, 1876. They are buried in the Sunning Hill Cemetery, Twp. Berry There is also a Carl Schultz buried here, but he is a different one, he died in 1876. I know all about him.

On the farm that I was born was a cemetery with about 30 burials. I is now overgrown with brush and only a few markers left. One of the burials was Mary Riewert (nee Niendorf) 1841-1878. Wife of A. Riewert.

Hi Cynthia,

I saw your query.
The 1862 Dane County Plat Map shows Chs. Schultz owning land in Sec. 5 & 8, in Springfield Twp. and the 1873 C. Schulz owns the same land.

Do you know if they were Catholic or Lutheran? I have a copy of the Lutheran Cemetery in the area and don't locate there. St. Martin's Catholic is only about 2 miles from where they lived.

Do you know where any of his children settled?

Virgil

Hi, I think I can maybe be of more help than others as I am familiar with names in this area and have more resources. I think it will require a trip to the Dane County Court House and one to the Wisconsin Historical Society to check vital records and probate records. Have you checked for any of the marriage or death records of any of the children to see if it gives the mothers maiden name. Where did you get the information that Carl Jr. was maybe born in Ozaukee County, ? Emilie Rieck Schulz's brother Herman (I assume he was) lived in Marxville and b.15 August 1825 d. 27 Mar 1825 (St. John's Berry death record p. 224. Ludvig Rieck, born October 21, 1792 in Furstenwerden, (with 2 dots over the u) (Hermans death rec. by Brandenburg) Kingdom of Prussia - died September. 11, 1876. They are buried in the Sunning Hill Cemetery, Twp. Berry There is also a Carl Schultz buried here, but he is a different one, he died in 1876. I know all about him. On the farm that I was born was a cemetery with about 30 burials. I is now overgrown with brush and only a few markers left. One of the burials was Mary Riewert (nee Niendorf) 1841-1878. Wife of A. Riewert. Is it possible that Carl could have gone west with his children? Did both of his children go west?Yes, I also have new plat maps. It would take some research as to where the houses were. A four lane highway is going through their property at the present. It is going on the south side of the east/west road in Springfield. The cemetery is the small triangle in the NW corner of Sec. 6.

I forgot to mention that I copied the St. John's Records. There are no death records if Carl died between 1880 and June 7, 1882. They must have been recorded in some other church. I couldn't locate any baptism, conformation or marriages for any Schulz's.

Thanks once again! I was on image # 21 when I stopped for awhile. This was very interesting. I thought his wife's name was Elmira because I could not read the writing clearly. Now, with the 1860 you sent to me, and the 1870 Census we know his wife was dead. The Lutheran Church is another surprise. But, I can see everything fitting together. The wife's name was Emilie;

The 1860 census shows that Carl is living with some relatives most likely. And it would have been taken just a few months after Emilie's death. In the 1860 census, Carl, 6, was my gggrandfather. And the daughter, 4, Emily, was the same on the 1870 census only it was spelled Amelia. The 1860 census says Prussia; the 1870 census shows Mecklenburg, If I remember correctly. I know it is Mecklenburg on every thing after that.

And the Lutheran Church is a big surprise to me. Carl Jr. and his wife, Barbara Wagner, (Peter and Anna Wagner) raised their children RC. So instead of thinking all of them were RC - it is possible that Carl Schulz's family was Lutheran and he married Barbara Wagner who was RC. I can get the ELCA records for St. John's LC in Springfield (or find out the location of the old records). (I am a Lutheran pastor - and we keep very good parish records). The first log church and cemetery was in Springfield Twp. The second one, a small stone church and cemetery was in Dane Twp. where the cemetery still is. The first cemetery is over grown with no markers unless buried. This is where Emilie would be buried. The third church, a wood frame church was built is Roxbury Twp. Church is no longer there. At the closing of the church it was with St. John's Berry and St. Paul's Marxville. The records are locate at St. Paul's Lutheran Church, 8748 Hwy 19, Mazomanie, Wisconsin 53560 Parish Phone 608-767-2274 Pastor Jerry Schara. He is also into genealogy, His Email is jlschara@tds.net

So I am convinced that Elmira was Emilie Schulz! What does geb. Rieck mean? It means born Rieck, or nee Rieck. There were other Riecks also. The Golz's may be a sister of Carl Schulz, Sr. Or... could that have been Emilie's maiden name? I don't think they used the patronymic naming system in Germany/Prussia like Scandinavia. There was no Germany back then. It was kingdoms, dukedom, etc.



I just located some information. I have copies of the St. John's Lutheran Church that was in the Springfield area. The 6th death recorded is Emilie Schulz, geb. Rieck, b. Jan 20, 1832, d. December 13, 1855. The Golz's are listed in the records. Do you think this could be Carl's wife?

He has been married for twenty-four years; nine children were born to this family with eight still living. Carl was born in Wisconsin with both of his parents born and married in Germany. He is a farmer with US Citizenship. There is a number written in above his name: a=0-1-6. He can read, write and speak English. At this point he does not yet own his farm. Both Schulz' maintained their Roman Catholic Religion.

We know that Anna was married in 1896, but John Schulz noted in the 1880 Federal Census is missing. He was either married or on his own working. The name of Michell, is spelled differently in the U.S. Census of 1910. Michael in 1910. Now, we learn that Michael died in 1922. He must have never married. No one in the family has mentioned Michael before. We need to look more closely at the old photos of the Kings in the 1920's for some of the Schulz' must be present and we were unaware of who they were.
