From History of Outagamie County, printed in 1911. (you can search it here: http://www.foxvalleymemory.org)

AUGUST ROTHLESBERGER, one of the progressive, up-to-date farmers of Seymour township, who has made his own way in the world and made a place for himself among the successful men of his section through hard work and a determination to succeed, was born October 25, 1856, at Port Washington, Ozaukee county, Wisconsin, a son of John and Matilda (Wachter) Rothlesberger, natives of Germany. The parents of Mr. Rothlesberger were farming people and their first property was located at Fredonia, where they resided seven years, then moving to Batavia. They continued to reside at this place until locating in Seymour township, settling on 120 acres of wild land, where they continued to live during the remainder of their lives. Mr. Rothlesberger's death occurred in 1898, when he was sixty-nine years old, and the mother passed away in 1904. They had the following children: August, George, William, Barney, Minnie, Lydia and Allie.

August Rothlesberger was the oldest of his parents' children, and as soon as he was able to reach the plow handles he was given his share of duties to perform on the home farm. He was reared to the life of an agriculturist and experienced all of the hard, unremitting toil of breaking in a new country, and no time was given him to acquire an education. Much observation, however, has given him a store of knowledge not to be gained in books, and he has never found that the lack of schooling interfered in any way with his ambition to succeed. When he purchased the old homestead it was graced with a little shanty and a log barn, but he soon added eighty acres to the original forty, built a fine house and a barn 40x100 feet, and settled down to general farming. Mr. Rothlesberger has one of the finest herds of Holstein cattle to be found in Outagamie county, and he makes on an average of 145 pounds of butter each week. His barn is equipped with all modern improvements as to sanitary needs and cleanliness, and includes the James patent stalls and stanchions.

In 1890 Mr. Rothlesberger was married to Josie Schimmelpfennig, daughter of August and Minnie Schimmelpfennig, and three children have been born to this union, namely: Ella, August and Hulda.


HENRY J. DALKE. While the soil of Outagamie county is very fertile, water plentiful and easily obtained and weather conditions nearly ideal, good crops cannot be raised unless the land is properly worked and scientifically conditioned, and the high standard set by the agriculturists of the county is therefore of great credit to them. One of the farmers of Center township who is operating along scientific lines is Henry J. Dalke, who was born October 24, 1888, in Center township, a son of John and Emma (Schimmelpfennig) Dalke. His grandparents, Henry and Lucy Dalke, came from Germany at an early day, and the former became one of the leading farmers of Outagamie county, retiring with a comfortable competency in 1904, from which time until his death, in 1909, he resided in Appleton. The grandmother still survives and makes her home in that city. John Dalke was born in Germany, and was seven or eight years of age when he accompanied his parents to the United States. He was reared to the life of a farmer, and was so industrious and hardworking in his youth that he was able to purchase a farm with his earnings long before other lads of his day had accumulated enough to do so, and this same industry and hard work enabled him to quickly clear his farm from the wilderness that encompassed it when he first became its owner. The brush, stumps, stones and timber soon gave way to flowing fields of grain and farm produce, and when he retired in 1909, to live in Appleton, he turned over to his son the magnificent farm, equipped with large, substantial buildings, nicely fenced and highly cultivated. Henry J. Dalke has inherited many of his father's admirable characteristics, having been brought up to the life of a farmer ever since leaving the district schools of his neighborhood. He has had charge of the farm since his father's retirement, and the large crops that have been raised and marketed by him leave no room for doubt as to his ability to manage it properly. In 1908 he was married to Ella Stecker, daughter of Henry and Ellen Stecker, of Center township, and to this union there has been born one son: Gordon, February 22, 1911. Mr. and Mrs. Dalke are members of the German Lutheran Church. Thus far he has found no time to engage in matters of a public nature, being too occupied with the duties of his farm.

Thanks Adaire,

But I already have this information, and the website you sent is actually my cousin's who has been researching the family also.
It just seems that this couple- August and Minnie disappeared off the face of the earth. We keep hitting a brick wall with them.
We know that they settled in Black Creek, WI. We can't seem to locate them after the 1900 census's. Not even as to where they are even buried.

Thanks again, Janice
