Hi Cheryl,
Thank you for answering my post. I have the names Fuchs, Schindler, Fiedler and Wesley(This name was probably Americanized from German) on my grandfathers mothers side of the family, but I don't know just how they were related.
My grandfather was Fred Allison and his mother died in 1896 in Los Angeles and her death certificate says that her name was Caroline Allison .b Wisconsin in 1864.
The LSD (Mormon) have her name as Carolyn Schindler, but an elderly Aunt thought that it was Wesley, and that Fred Allison had Fuchs cousins. Quite a puzzle! Any way, we do know that she was German.
My grandfather came to Canada in 1903 with the John Fuchs family from Perham, Otter Tail County, MN. when he was 16 years old. 2 boy in the family were Nicholas & Balthasar, unusual names that are comon in both the Schindler and Fuchs families.
It seems that the Fuchs of Chippawa county were related to the Fuchs of Stearns County, MN, and those in Perham, Otter Tail.
In Otter Tail there were Schindler, Fuchs & Fiedler families in the late 1800's.
Many of these German speaking people came to Saskatchewan, Canada to homestead at the turn of the century.
We had thought the Caroline Fuchs (dau. of John and Anna) that you mentioned could have been Fred's mother, but then we found that she married a Boettcher. Her 2 sisters also married Boettchers.
Some of the Fuchs/Schindlers were from Prussia and others were from Baden, yet they all seemed to have been related.
I am very interested to know what you think of all this, and to learn how the Fuchs and Schindlers and possibly the Wesleys were related.
PS. There were also Fuchs & Schindlers and Wesleys living in Ramsey County, MN. (now part of St.Paul) in the 1860-1890 era.
