I'm a lost Hoelscher! My Grandfather was Henry Hoelscher of Teutopolis, Illinois, my father was Clarence, known as Joe. My uncles were Francis and John Hoelscher, my aunts are Margie, Martha, Rita, Mary, Florence and Barbara, not in that order. I am trying to learn more about my ancestry for my son, Kee John Wilson, who is half Navajo. His family is interested in knowing the history of his half.

My grandfathers name was also Henry Hoelscher from Quince, Ill., I don't know if we are related -. Henry was born in Ill but as a child moved to Neb. where he married Augusta Ruwe. They eventually moved to California where my father, Carl, was born as was I.
I am seeking any information about Hoelschers from Quincy, Ill.

Quincy is not far from where we are from. My Henry was married to Theresa Valkenburg (I think that is the spelling, we called her 'Walkingbird" from it as kids.) This is the first time I've tried to look into my ancestry, have you learned anything of interest? Sandie

I was married to a Donhardt whose grandfather was from Quincy Illinois, and whose granpa was the "dog enumerator " for the city in the 30's 40's and 50's, he died in the 1950's and all the Hoelscher's I knew lived in or around Quincy Illinois or across the river in Missouri. The grandfather of the group came from Germany and I have a program about the family if you would like me to send you a copy. It is a statement of who came to America first and the women he married and so on. Be glad to send it to you.

The first person on thta report was John Speckhardt born June 14, in Krumbach, Grand Duchy of Hessen who married Elizabeth Vornoff born in the same state. they arrived in 1839via New Orleans, arriving in Quincy in 1840 HIs wife preceded him in death and he married:
he remarried 3 times the first being Lena Schaefer,next, Anna Frederick, and thirdly Lena Harms. then he relocated and married Hannah Schaefer. he had a daughter named Margaret, who was one of the most wonderful women who ever lived, and she was Mrs Frederick William Hoelscher. She is now dead but lived a verylong life and I am sure you may find them in the census of the state of Illinois I in Quincy on Adams street. Good luck, their daughter is still living in Indiana and is the most wonderful Mother in Law anyone could ever hope for. Good luck, Nora Green

Fritz,
I am from about 50 miles NE of Quincy, near Macomb, IL. There are Hoelschers in this area still (Plymouth, IL). I have also read about the first Hoelschers to settle in this area in one of the local county history books, but cannot recall which one. May have been Hancock or Schuyler county. If your branch of the family came thru Schuyler county in IL, there are good records at: Schuyler Jail Museum & Gnlgcl

Mary is my grandmother. You may not be as lost as you thought, but since this is old, I'm not entirely sure that you haven't figured this out yet. From what I've learned, there was quite a rift in that family of brothers and sisters. My grandma married Floyd Baker and lived just down the road from the Henry and Theresa homestead. Francis past away a few years back, but my grandmother is still around. I don't really know too much about the rest, but I can try to put you in touch with her if you'd like.
