Both John and Caroline were born in Prussia (Germany). Have been told they married in New York City- date unknown. Know they were living in Redwing Minnestoa when my grandfather William Henry Adler was born June 1869. Records wer enot kept there until 1870 (Minn. births) Censusfor 9 of June 1860 New York1 st division City of New York shows a Caroline Schroder a domestic from Prussia.. maybe this is her. along with a Henry Schroder a clerk who is 21 also born in Prussia with the name wonder if its brother and sister. shows her as 18 which would mean she was born in 1842.(However cenus of 1880 shows her as 48 which would mean 10 years earlier., however William Age 11 is correct as would be Henry age 17)
Goodhue Co., Minn. cenus of 1880 shows a Caroline Adler with sons William age 11 and a Henry age 17 Zumbrota, Goodhue Minnesota. No John. Shows Caroline as a housekeeper.This is the first time I came to realize that my grandfather William Henry had a brother!

My grandparents sold out in N.D. and came to Canada where they homesteaded in Sask.(naturalized Canadians 1914) Grandfather William (Bill) died in 1931 leg amputated and Grandma Nellie died 1951 in Sask. Rumor has it that Henry came to Canada also.. I did find a homestead for a Henry adler in Sask. but it was a long ways from Williams Homestead so I do not know if any relation or not.
