Anna Barbara (Roth) Weikert

Anna Barbara (Roth) Weikert

Posted: 8 Aug 2012 4:33PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Roth, Lilli, Weikert
Anna Barbara was born in Lake County, Illinois in 1858 to Joseph Roth and Anna Barbara Lilli. She married Henry Weikert in Lyon County, Iowa in 1880 and died in Otter Tail County, Minnesota. I am trying to identify the family her mother lived with in Lake County before her marriage. Anna Barbara (Lilli) Roth died in Lyon County, Iowa and her father was Georg Lilli.

Facts you should know about the early census records -
All census records [1790 – 1840] prior to the 1850 census ONLY listed the head of household; whether male or female.

NO specific age was stated for any family member
NO place of birth was stated – city, state, or country
NO city, town, or village is stated – only the county; however some census takers listed the township
NO street address was stated
NO marital status was stated – single, married, widowed, or divorced
NO family relationship was stated – brother, sister, cousin, son, daughter, wife, inlaw, etc…
NO occupation was stated
NO parental birthplaces are stated
NO race was stated [but assume “white”]

1850, 1860 & 1870 census records do not show family relationships, marital status or parental birthplaces.

Step children are not enumerated as “step” children
Adopted children are not enumerated as “adopted”
Grand children are not enumerated as “grand children”

1850 is the 1st census that shows all family members
