Hello, I am not related. Hope this helps. RP
------------
If I have the right family, Frank Maresch was married to Elizabeth Stief/Stife. They married on 21 May 1890 in Marion, Linn County, Iowa. Parents for Frank were Frank Matish (Maresch?) & Terisa Sardos, and Elizabeth's parents were Jos Stife & Lizzie Novak. They seem to have shown up in the 1900 census in Arthur, Chippewa County, Wisconsin, where a daughter (possibly Josephine) was born 13 Feb 1903. By 1905 (State census), and the 1920 census, they were living in Oak Creek, Milwaukee County, where son Frank Jr. was born 21 May 1906. by the 1920 census, Elizabeth (married), and some of her children were living in Knowlton, Marathon County. Don't know where Frank was at the time. Possibly moving the rest of the family? or working out somewhere?. You have the 1930 census in Guenther. During the 1940 census, Frank & Elizabeth were still living in Guenther with a granddaughter Joan Maresch. Most likely Frank Jr's daughter, as he seems to have been the only son of Frank & Elizabeth.
The 1930 census states that they immigrated in 1909, but the other census records show circa 1887-1889. This immigration period wpuld fit better with their marriage record of 1890.
One of their daughters, Anna, married Valentine Harvanek. She died March 24, 1961. Her brother Frank Jr., died one day before she did, March 23, 1961 in Randsville, Michigan. There was a joint service for them. Anna's funeral notice states that she was a native of Racine. So, they probably lived there in between census records. Which brings me to a conclusion that Frank's parents, Frank & Theresa, may have immigrated also, because in the 1900 census, I found a Frank & Theresa Maresch living in Caledonia, Racine County, Wisconsin, whose ages could be his parents.
