I've done a little work in the Census and it appears that Frederick Arthur Rote was born in Franklin, DeKalb, IL and married Jennie J. Plucker from Marion, Ogle, IL. His parents appear to be Frank (1870 Census shows Francis) and Catherine (?) Rote, born in PA and Canada, and he had at least 6 siblings. Jennie's parents seem to be Wesley and Angelina PLUCKER (I think he is the PLUNKETT that shows up in the 1870 Census) and in 1880 she was the only issue.
Fred and Jennie then show up in the 1910 Census in Denver, Kingsbury, SD with 2 children, Vesta and Katie.
I haven't gone any further as I'm reasonably certain that this Rote family doesn't connect to mine out of NY.
Hope your research goes well.
