Frank Kraushaar Sr.

My mother's grandfather on her father's side (My great grandfather) Frank Kraushaar Sr. was born about 1836 in Prussia, Germany. He came to America and settled in the Jersey County, Illinois area in about 1860. He and his wife Julia were listed in the Jersey County, IL 1860 census for Richwood Township. The Kraushaar name is misspelled Krausse or Crouser in some of the old census and other records. The 1860 census said he was a shoemaker. He later became a farmer in the Fieldon, IL area. He died in Sept. 1879 on his farm near Fieldon, English Township, Jersey County, IL. He married Julia Anna Albert abt. 1859. She was born about 1842 in Prussia, Germany. She died about 1900 on farm near Fieldon, IL. I believe Julia's parents came to Jersey County. IL about 1858 from New York state. I think her parents were Michael and Catherine (Radtrioh) Albert, and that they were born in Germany and came to the United States between 1845 and 1847 and lived in New York state from the time they arrived in America until about 1858 when they came to Illinois. I believe they had 9 children-Julia Ann Albert (my great grandmother), Nicholas Albert, John Albert, Frank Albert, Anna Albert, Rose Albert, Mary Albert, Lucina or Lucinda Albert, and another child (name unknown). Some of the children were born in Germany and some in New York.

(Note: From my research I found information, which is not yet proven or verified, that my great grandfather Frank Kraushaar's wife Julia Anna Albert was possibly a daughter of Michael Albert and Catherina Radtrioh born in Bayern, Germany. Nicholas Albert of the Jersey County, IL area was a son of Michael and Kate (Heterick) Albert and was born in 1850 in NY. I think it is possible that Nicholas Albert was a brother to my great grandmother Julia (Albert) Kraushaar who married my great grandfather Frank Kraushaar Sr. My great grandmother's father's name was also Michael Albert and her mother's name was also Catherine. Her mother's maiden name Radtrioh might have been a misspelling. Nicholas Albert's mother's maiden name was spelled Heterick, and his sister Mary spelled her mother's maiden name Hadrick in her obituary which is somewhat similar to my great grandmother's spelling of her mother's maiden name, Radtrioh. Another sister Rose spelled her mother's maiden name Hartwick, so there is a wide variation in the spellings, and therefore I don't know what is the correct spelling of her maiden name. Nicholas and his sisters Rose and Mary were born in NY. His parents, Michael Albert born abt. 1804 in Bavaria, Germany and his wife Catherine born abt. 1814 also in Bavaria, Germany, and their family moved to Jersey County IL from New York in about 1858. His parents were born in Germany as was my great Grandmother Julia in about 1842. Nicholas Albert's sister Rose (Albert) Reher's obituary said there were 9 children in the family. I have identified possibly 8 children and their approximate dates of birth from census records-Nicholas Albert born 2-16-1850 in NY, died 8-18-1925, married 1st Theresa Lenz, married 2nd Katurah Hughes; Rose (Albert) Reher born abt. 1855 in NY, died 6-5-1942, married William Reher; Mary Dorothy (Albert) Lenz born Nov. 1847 in NY, died 5-18-1922, married Joseph Lenz; Anna (Albert) Foster born 8-8-1858 in NY, died 10-18-1915, married Joseph Foster; Lucinda Albert born abt. 1856 in NY; Frank J. Albert born abt. 1845 in Germany, died 4-6-1862, killed in action in the Civil War; John Michael Albert born abt. 1837 in Germany, died 1905 in Lincoln Co., MO, married Susan Ursaline Skinner; and possibly my great grandmother Julia Anna (Albert) Kraushaar born abt. 1842 in Germany, died abt. 1900, married 1st Frank Kraushaar Sr., married 2nd William Weisner. I believe my great grandmother Julia's parents came to America between 1845 and 1847, because their son Frank was born in 1845 in Germany and their daughter Mary was born in 1847 in New York.

Frank and Julia (Albert) Kraushaar's son Frank Kraushaar Jr.'s will court case after his death in 1937 - Judge Victor Hemphill who presided at a session of the Jersey County Circuit Court Friday, rendered his decision in the will case of the late Frank Kraushaar, deceased, which he has had under advisement since July 23. 1937. The suit was taken to the Circuit Court on an appeal from the County Court, the petitioner for the appeal being Frances Traunecker of Alton, a daughter of Frank Kraushaar. Kraushaar died Jan. 22, 1937 and his will was filed for probate on Jan. 23, by his son, William Kraushaar. The document was admitted to probate in the County Court on March 8. By the terms of the will the testator bequeathed his estate consisting of real estate and personal property amounting to about 53000, to his son, William, who was named executor without bond. In addition to the two litigants, other heirs-at-law of Kraushaar, listed In the court records, are: sons, Louis Kraushaar of Spokane, Wash.; Henry E. Kraushaar of Lewiston; Frank and Leo Kraushaar of Alton; and another daughter, Mrs. Augusta Baxter, of Jerseyville. Frances Traunecker, a daughter of the deceased, on March 10, appealed the matter to the Circuit Court and a hearing was had. In he testimony it was brought out that the witnesses to the will, Margaret Quinn and Minnie Hesley were not acquainted with Frank Kraushaar prior to the signing of he document and the question arose regarding their competency to testify to Kraushaar's condition it the time the will was signed. In his decision the court found the issues in favor of the proponents and held that the instrument offered in evidence was proven to be the last will and testament of Frank Kraushaar, deceased. It was ordered that said Instrument be admitted to probate in the County Court of Jersey County and that the Appellant pay the costs in the Circuit Court. Attorney G. Russell Schwarz of Jerseyville represented the proponents in the case and Manuel Wiseman of Alton, the appellant.
