  • 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.


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.
