Hi: This Henry Rodewald was listed as a member of Frederick Edward Rodewald's family, living in Van Buren, Iowa in 1859. Fredericks wife Sophie had died two years prior to this. Henry moved to Rock Elm, Wisconsin with his father in 1871 or about that time. I next found him living with his Cousin Frederick Henry Rodewald in Preston, Iowa. Preston is in Jackson County. Frederick Henry was born in 1845 in Germany. He was one of three boys born to Frederick Edward Rodewald and Sophie Heide. The second son was William David, born in 1847, also in Germany. The other son Charles Henry was born in St Louis, Missouri in 1852. Charles was my grandfather. This information comes primarily the US Census but I have used the WORO link found for Rodewald's in Roots. I have traced most of the Frederick Edward Rodewald family through the US Census through the 1930 Census. Some I have lost, particularily the girls but I have found some of those as well. I have not been able to do as well with the childred of my grandfathers brothers and sister. Let me know if this helps. My father, Gordon Edwin Rodewald, left Wisconsin after two years of college for a job in North Dakota. He subsequently moved to Eastern Montana (Brockton) where he settled, married. His Brother Charles Henry also moved to North Dakota, where he taught school, ending up in Tioga.
