I need to find out if Mary K Almekinder of Ashland, WI is the daughter of Michael and Rosina Lockbaum of the Neenah Menasha area.

Mary was the wife of Martin N. Almekinder born abt 1850 Holland. They both lived in Ashland WI beyond the 1940 census.

Mary and Martin Almekinder were the parents of Irene Rose O’Neill wife of Howard Patrick O’Neill born in Kingston, Ontario. Irene and Howard O’Neill lived in Milwaukee and are buried in Holy Cross RC Cemetery.

The 1906 birth record for Martin and Mary’s daughter Irene T. (Mary’s sister) lists the mother as Mary Zockbaun. I cannot bring-up the pre 1907 record at familysearch.org to read the name myself. I am using an old browser out of necessity.

I have not found a Zockbaun but I did come across the Michael and Rosina Lockbaum family of Neenah, WI. In the 1880 census they have a daughter Mary, the same age as Mary K. Almekinder in later censuses.

“Billion Graves” gives the following information: Rosina Meyer Lockbaum, b. 3 October 1837 d. 1921 and her husband Michael Lockbaum b. 9 March 1836 d. 5 April 1905. Both are buried at Saint Patrick’s Cemetery, Neenah, Wisconsin. Rosina’s obituary which I will post in this thread indicates that she died on Jan 10, 1921.

Martin N. Almekinder was not a farmer. The 1910 census will not come up so I can read his occupation. In 1930 he was a railroad watchman. The 1940 lists no occupation. I cannot find him on the 1920 census. My recollection is he was maintaining equipment.

From Access Newspapers I copied a few short articles on the Lockbaum family. I will continue this thread by posting what I found on the Lockbaums.

Any help with CONNECTING or RULING OUT Mary K. Almekinder of Ashland, WI with the Michael Lockbaum family of Neenah Menasha would be greatly appreciated. I will also post at the Ashland Co., WI site.

Per the Jacob Lockbaum obituary: He was born in Milwaukee on July 19, 1860. At the age of twelve years he moved with his parents to Menasha." WI. I believe that he was the son of Michael and Rosina Meyer Lockbaum. So that would mean the family moved from Milwaukee to Menasha in abt 1872. As an adult Jacob lived in Thorpe, Clarke, Co. I will post his obituary and that of Rosina Meyer Lockman in separate threads after I make lists of all the people listed in the obits.

There are many short articles on the Lockbaums in Racine Co. Many are under the township Union Church. One says they visited relative in Burlington, Racine, WI but gave no name. Some Lockbaums are further west in Muskego, Racine, WI. Around the 1860s a George Lockbaum was in Franklin, Milwaukee Co just north of Racine Co. mqt

Mary Lockbaum, the daughter of Michael Lockbaum and Rosina Meyer Lockbaum, was married to Martin Almekinder.

In Michael and Mary Lockbaum's son George Lockbaum's April 1939 obituary posted on this site it states that he was survived by a sister Mrs. Martin Almekinder of Ashland WI. His wife, children and other siblings also survived him.

So I have answered my own query and also posted some information about the Lockbaums who lived in the Menasha area for at least one half a century.
