"DICKMANN - Theodore and Gertrude
Their daughter Maria Catharine married Herman Konrath on 19 May 1868 in St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Wauwatosa. She had a brother, John who was a Godfather for her daughter. Looking for more info."
Did Theo. die in the 1880s? There were death notices published in the local German papers for a Johann Theodor Dickmann in one paper and just Theodor Dickmann in another. And that makes me wonder if Gertrude's name was Gertrud Maria, because there were also death notices in the 1880s for a Maria Dickmann, survived by Johann Theodor.
There were death notices for a John Dickmann in the 1890s.
There were also death notices for a Marie Konrath in 1921.
There are about 50 Dickmann entries in "Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items" (1844-1950).
One other thing that's important to note: St. Joseph Catholic Church in Wauwatosa was originally located at 11th & Cherry in Milwaukee's old German ghetto to the west and north of downtown Milwaukee. Freeway building in the 1960s that caused some of the old churches to move.
