"Joseph B. was first married to Eva Pettrick, no children"
I was excited to stumble on this post. Until today I hadn't found anything on this couple.
Iva was one of my aunts. She was the 4th of the 14 children born to my grandparents, Herman and Ida (GAULKE) PETRICH. She was born June 05, 1912 in the Town of Eldorado. She married Joseph in January 1930 against her parents wishes. She was only 17 at the time. She died on Nov.12, 1930, after a brief illness according to Wisconsin State Journal (Madison, Wisconsin) Thursday, November 13, 1930. I was told that she was buried in her parents'-in-law plot. My mother thought Iva had died giving birth (along with the child). But she was only 8 when Iva died, so who knows?
