Looking for info on Charles Markwardt, b. abt. 1864 and living in Newton or Jasper Co. MO between 1900 and 1910. He is believed to be a widower with children when he married my great grandmother, Anna Welch, nee Beeler who was widowed with children in the 1890´s.
Believe his children were named Jeanette and possibly Henry but not sure. Jeanette is thought to have married an Oberlechner.
He had a resturant at 707 Main in Joplin, MO, at least in 1908, and I have been told there was also a Markwardt bakery.
He is not found as yet on any MO census records, but the spelling Markwardt was his own handwriting. Orig. name is possibly Marquardt or some variant.
