I have an original cabinet card photograph of “Theodore Gottschalg - 7 months old”, which I’d like to get back to descendants or family members. Photo was taken in Beatrice (Gage Co.) NE. Name occasionally spelled Gottschalk.
I found Theodore with his family in the 1900 census for Plymouth (Jefferson) NE, showing his birth as Aug 1888, son of Emil & Catherine. Emil’s obituary shows that his mother was Margaret (Goldfuss) Gottschalg, who died, and Emil married Catherine in 1892. In WWI Draft Registration in Fillmore Co., NE, Theodore Conrad Gottschalg’s birth is listed as 27 Aug 1891. In 1920, Theodore’s wife was Olga and they lived in Fillmore Co. B y 1930, he and family had moved to Dawson (Tulsa) OK and wife’s name is Florence. In 1942 WWII registration, he listed birth as 27 Aug 1890 but did not show any wife.
