Ok - isn't it fun when there are multiple spellings (Grin)... Here is what I found in the on-line records - perhaps some of these clues will help. I tried MEWS, MEVES, MAVES - I started in the 1880 census and will go forward - this post is for the spelling of MEWS

NOTE: There is a MEWS in both WoodCoWI and in MarathonCoWI - which are the neighboring counties - this might be worth checking into... Also, if you know the names of the children - try checking their birth certificates, sometimes it lists the number of children the mother has, living and dead....

I am requesting information on the MEVES burial in the Hillside cemetery. I believe this grave to be for my grandfather's step-brother's son; however, there was a name change (which seemed to be more of a name-evolving over a period of years than any documentable, recorded change) from MEWS to MAVES with many variations. The graves that are next to this very old sandstone-type marker are heralded by a contemporary (relatively) granite marker which is for FRANK and AMANDA MAVES (my grandfather's step-brother and his wife).

I have searched at the Portage County Register of Deeds Office, the Archives section at UWSP (been there, as I now live in Stevens Point), any Portage County on line sources (including the university and library sites ) as well as the existing records of the funeral home serving the Amherst area in the early 1900's, and not found a certificate for birth or death, a listing in the funeral home records or any shred of evidence of the existence of this child.

My aunt (my father's sister) vaguely recalls that this MEVES grave was Frank and Amanda's first child. This, however is the best I have been able to do as a means of confirmation.

Also, I am still looking for the grave site of Frank Mews / Maves'
Thanks for any light you may be able to shed on the MEVES MAVES burials.

Ok - isn't it fun when there are multiple spellings (Grin)... Here is what I found in the on-line records - perhaps some of these clues will help. I tried MEWS, MEVES, MAVES - I started in the 1880 census and will go forward - looking for clues - here is MEVES:

I am requesting information on the MEVES burial in the Hillside cemetery. I believe this grave to be for my grandfather's step-brother's son; however, there was a name change (which seemed to be more of a name-evolving over a period of years than any documentable, recorded change) from MEWS to MAVES with many variations. The graves that are next to this very old sandstone-type marker are heralded by a contemporary (relatively) granite marker which is for FRANK and AMANDA MAVES (my grandfather's step-brother and his wife).

I have searched at the Portage County Register of Deeds Office, the Archives section at UWSP (been there, as I now live in Stevens Point), any Portage County on line sources (including the university and library sites) as well as the existing records of the funeral home serving the Amherst area in the early 1900's, and not found a certificate for birth or death, a listing in the funeral home records or any shred of evidence of the existence of this child.

My aunt (my father's sister) vaguely recalls that this MEVES grave was Frank and Amanda's first child. This, however is the best I have been able to do as a means of confirmation.

Also, I am still looking for the grave site of Frank Mews / Maves'

Ok - isn't it fun when there are multiple spellings (Grin)... Here is what I found in the on-line records - perhaps some of these clues will help. I tried MEWS, MEVES, MAVES - I started in the 1880 census and will go forward - looking for clues - here is MAVES:

NOTE: There is a MAVES in ClarkCoWI - which is the neighboring county to WoodCoWI - this might be worth checking into...

I did find the cemetery record but nothing else on this name - I would try St James Church records - perhaps there is a baptism or burial record there? You did note that the child was born 7 months after the marriage of Fank and Amanda?

Here is the specific info on the Meves burial.

MEVES, KARL FRIEDRICK Geb 25 Nov 1902 Gest 27 Jan1903

I am looking for documentation that his father's first name was Frank and his mothers first name Amanda (nee Boelter). At the time of the child's burial, the surname must have been MEVES. Frank and Amanda's marriage license (10 April 1902) lists Frank's surname as Mews or Mervs.

Here is the specific info on the Meves burial.

MEVES, KARL FRIEDRICK Geb 25 Nov 1902 Gest 27 Jan1903

I am looking for documentation that his father's first name was Frank and his mothers first name Amanda (nee Boelter). At the time of the child's burial, the surname must have been MEVES. Frank and Amanda's marriage license (10 April 1902) lists Frank's surname as Mews or Mervs.

Thanks,

Mary Rossmeier <nitesky@charter.net+++>

I have studied all of the information you sent and found it very interesting. The information about the World War I draft under the surname MAVES lists 3 names all of which are relatives. I am wondering if there is information I can request from the government based on knowing they had registered for the draft. Do you know?

The Maves names from Portage County WI are all related; however, I was unable to find an entry under MEWS that I recognized. Possibly this is because (I now know) Vricke came from Prussia with her family about 1885. I believe they arrived first in New York and then came to Chicago. I found the Naturalization papers for Vricke's son (with Karl). His name was Frank. Frank petitioned the court for citizenship in 1914. On these papers he indicates that they arrived in New York in 1882; however, in the census record from 1900, Vricke is listed as coming to this country in 1885 and her husband (at that time), Fred Mews, is listed as coming from Prussia in 1887.

At the time of Vricke's arrival she was married to Charles / Karl Mews. They came with their son Frank and possibly relatives of Vricke's (nee Post). Frank was born in 1880 in Prov. Posen, Prussia / Germany <don't you just love marriage licenses when they are filled out properly?!?> I expect that if we accessed the Cook County IL records there would be info on Charles and Vricke. I have looked through the Germans to America series of books at UWSP library but not been able to find any immigration record for the years listed with the correct names.

On 6 July 1885 Charles / Karl and Vricke had a child in Cook County. She was unnamed on the birth certificate but subsequently called Martha. On 13 November 1885 Charles was killed in an accident at the rail road yards on Dearborn Street in Chicago. I found his death certificate under MEUES on the inquest listings for IL. The penmanship is hard to read on the death certificate but this variation in names makes everything all the more confusing. I know that Vricke was married to Fred Mews in Portage County WI 29 July 1888. This is the first MEWS in my relationship in WI. Charles' death certificate does not specify a wife's name or a place of burial. I don't know if the inquest record will name Vricke or not however, I have requested one. It has not yet arrived. I have also requested the Chicago library system do a look up in their microfilmed newspapers for Nov 1885 to see if they can locate an obituary. I have not heard from them either. I would like some kind of documentation that, in fact, Charles was Vricke's husband and therefore the person that I am looking for. ((Frank's marriage license lists his father's name as "Carl" (modernized version of Karl?) Frank's first child was named Friedrick Karl [after his biological father (Karl Mews) and also the man who raised him (Fred Mews)??] Martha's birth certificate lists her father as Charles Mews. The date fits Martha's known birthday exactly however, at the time the certificate was filed the child was unnamed. The mothers first name on the birth certificate was a version of Vricke's many names but the maiden name of the mother was in cursive pen and the first letter of the name looks like "R" with the last 3 letters being, clearly, "ost". Vricke's maiden name was POST!))

Is any of this making any sense to you? After a while it seems so
circumlocutive to me that even I cant understand it any more!

I don't know whether or not I have told you that I heard from the town clerk regarding Hillside cemetery records. The very brief cemetery record states that all 3 (Frank and Amanda Maves and Friedrick Karl Meves) are, in fact, buried on the same lot and, as there is no other existing record for this child that I can find, this certainly seems to link this couple to this child. It's not "iron clad" but, coupled with verbal family history, it fits -- and as far as documentation goes, it seems to be the best that I will be able to do.

I also found and reviewed the BOELTER material. I will have to write about that at a later time. I do thank you for sending it!

I hope that you can "wade through" the above tangle of names and dates and relationships.

Thank you again.
