Things to remember or to research from this census:

  • Look for land records for Albert Starkey (he owns their home)
  • Need to create a timeline and include this information on it.

To Do Next: Create the timeline with this information as the beginning information. Also look for the 1920 US Federal Census for Albert & Mary Starkey family.

To get started, I am going to post what I “THINK” to be the correct information so far. Most of this is undocumented, which is why I am doing this. First, if you see something wrong, you can provide me with the details so I can put it out there for the world to see. Second, it will give me a place to provide documentation for what I do have so far, and keep it all in one place. Time to take a look at the family.

Johann (John) Theodore Starkey was born on 23 Oct 1833 in Germany. At the age of 22 he came to America. He met and later married Emilie Charlotte Kuehl. From this marriage came 10 children: Albert, Bernard, Ada, Mary, Sophia, John, Henry, Joseph, Tracy and Anne.
