Wolfgang is my great grandfather. He was born in Wi, orphaned and at age 12 went to work for Jasper family farm in Luxemburg Wi. He homestead in U.P. Michigan Gourley Township (at the time Cederville Township) now Carney in Menomoniee County. He was friends with Henry Jasper in Gourley Township. Wolfgang married Josephine Charles in 1892 in Cedar River Mi. Daughters: Anna ( Arthur Berger) Catherine (Harold Mack) Barbara(? Chapman) Son Florian "Rusty" ( Dagmar Erickson). He is buried in the U.P Wilson Seventh Day Adventist Church Cemetary. After he died Josephine married Joe Duca. If anyone could help me with ANY info in early life I would be so thankful. I can only locate him in Michigan Land Records under "Rote" 1910 Cederville Census under (Rhode) and obit for Barbara Chapman (Rode). Tombstone reads Wolfgang Rode. Thanks!!!
