Notes

Note
*Henry and Augusta Goettsch -- *Henry and others came from Scott
County in eastern Iowa in 1879 before the town of Holstein existed.
They came on the railroad as far as they could; then they continued with
teams of horses and wagons to Ida County, where they homesteaded their
land. The purpose of this immigration was to "break the land" as they
called it. They stayed only during the summer months, when they lived
in shanties and earth dug-outs. One of the other settlers was Jurgen
Thede, whose granddaughter, Lillian Thede, later married Henry's son
Walter. Henry told his children about breaking land in Sections 14, 20,
and 22 in Griggs Township.

Henry Goettsch was born April 12, 1861, in Scott County, Iowa to Hans
and Anna Slopkole Goettsch. On December 19,1888, he married Augusta
Stricker, daughter of Christian and Wilhelmina Stricker. She was born
at Tama County, Iowa, May 27, 1866. They farmed rented land for several
years, and in 1891 they bought 240 acres in Section 20 of Griggs
Township, where they farmed until their retirement in 1916. Henry
passed away September 7, 1931: Augusta passed away March 12,1949.

Henry and Augusta were the parents of seven children: Edward ‎(June 3,
1889 - March 3, 1960)‎: Carl ‎(February 3, 1891 - July 14, 1975)‎, married
to Minnie Schlichting: Rhoda, Mrs. Hans Rohlk ‎(July 24, 1893 - March
26, 1956)‎: Selma, Mrs. Emil Ehler ‎(September 14, 1895 - 1988 )‎: Minnie,
Mrs Vern Bryson ‎(January 6 1898 - July 11 1966)‎: Walter ‎(November 12,
1900 - 1984)‎: and Annetta, Mrs. LeRoy Thomsen ‎(October 12, 1905 -
February 12, 2002)‎.
