Have you looked at the burial register of the church where they were married (by tracing the congregation of the minister on the marriage record). Many Milwaukee area Protestant church records are available in library collections.

I don't find a clear match in "Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items" (1844-1950).

Hi Gary,
I have not looked at the church burial records yet. If I could find it online,then that would be more simple for me at the moment.

Thank you for the suggestion.

Daniel

"Looking for anyone with Schneider family history information from Wöbbelin, Mecklenburg. John (Johann) Schneider died between 1871-1875 in Milwaukee ..."

A John G. Schneider committed suicide in Milwaukee on 7 Sept. 1873. This is one of those obtuse entries in my index: it's listed in a chronology of local deaths/news events published in Jan. 1874. Otherwise, there were no death notices or obit. for that Joh. G. Schneider in the German papers.

The Milw. County Historical Society may have a coroner's report, and/or it may have been reported to the Milwaukee County Register of Deeds office (records available in 3 local libraries through about 1912).

BTW: there were death notices and a Danksagung for Friedericke Pirwitz (née Grabert); and I have indexed possible matches for a Carl Radiske and a Wilhelmine Radiske.
