9. Tracy Starkey, white, 4, daughter, single, born in Minnesota, parents born in Prussia.

THINGS TO NOTE:

  • The ages of several of these people do not correspond with the dates that I have. Most are off by 3 years.
  • I have that Bernard Starkey died in 1879, but he appears on the 1880 Census, research is needed here.
  • Where did Ada Starkey go? I have her born in about 1862, was she married by this time?
  • Where did John Starkey go? I have him born in 1871, but he is not on this census.

NEXT TO DO: Locate Albert Starkey with his parents in the 1875 Minnesota State Census.

  1. John Hartl, 40, male, white, born in Germany, parents of foreign birth.
  2. Mary Hartl, 30, female, white, born in Pennsylvania.
  3. Mary Hartl, 15, female, white, born in Pennsylvania, father of foreign birth.
  4. Joseph Hartl, 12, male, white, born in Minnesota, father of foreign birth.
  5. Annie Hartl, 11, female, white, born in Minnesota, father of foreign birth.
  6. Emma Hartl, 4, female, white, born in Minnesota, father of foreign birth.
  7. Clara Hartl, 2 female, white, born in Minnesota, father of foreign birth.

Things To Note:

  • John Hartl was 40 in 1885, making him born about 1845 in Germany.
  • Mary Hartl was 30 in 1885, making her born about 1855 in Pennsylvania.
  • Mary Hartl was 15 in 1885, making her born about 1870 in Pennsylvania.
  • Joseph Hartl was 12 in 1885, making him born about 1873 in Minnesota.
  • Annie Hartl was 11 in 1885, making her born about 1874 in Minnesota.
  • Emma Hartl was 4 in 1885, making her born about 1881 in Minnesota
  • Clara Hartl was 2 in 1885, making her born about 1883 in Minnesota.

Questions I have:

  1. When did John Hartel immigrate and how?
  2. With there being only 15 years difference between Mary the wife and Mary the daughter, is this really the correct mother?
  3. Could there have been a first wife that was the mother of the first 3 children, then a second marriage to Mary Ann Kaufmann who had the last two children? Would also help explain the huge gap in children’s ages.

NEXT TO DO:  Locate Albert J. Starkey in the 1880 US Federal Census.

Albert Starkey was enumerated on 29 May 1885 in Derrynane, Le Sueur County, Minnesota on the Minnesota State Census that year.

  • Albert Starkey, 25, male, white, born in Wisconsin.

Although this does not give us a ton of information it does put him in a specific place at a specific time. We can also note this record states he was 25 years old in 1885, making him born about 1860 and also states he was born in Wisconsin.

Next To Do: Locate Mary Hartel in the 1885 Minnesota State Census.

Albert Starkey and Mary Hartel were married on 8 Jan 1889 in St. Paul, Ramsey, Minnesota.

Here is the marriage license and certificate:

Albert Starkey and Mary Hartl were married in St. Paul, Ramsey, Minnesota. Witnesses to their marriage were Henry Starkey and Mary Starkey. They were married by a Clergyman. They obtained their marriage license on 7 Jan 1889.

Things to note:

  1. Obviously the marriage information can now be considered “sourced”
  2. Albert Starkey has a brother named Henry Starkey and a sister named Mary Starkey, is this the witnesses?
  3. Mary Hartel is spelled Mary Hartl in this record. I will add that as an additional spelling.

.

Although I have found the census records for them as a couple, they will both appear on census records before they were married, this is what I will work on next. Finding each one previous to them being married.

Next To Do: Look for Albert in the 1885 Minnesota State Census.

Note:

  • Albert’s parents were reported to be born in Whitover. I need to figure out if that will help narrow down where Johann Starkey and Emilie Kuehl (his parents) were born!
  • The census states they own their farm, with a mortgage. Look for records to support this.
  • Albert and Mary do not speak English in 1920, however, the 1930 census states that they do. Makes me wonder if they learned English during that timeframe… yes this is how random my mind works haha.

To Do Next: Add the 1920 Census information to the timeline and locate Albert & Mary Starkey Family in the 1910 U. S. Federal Census.
