Traugert is the name listed in the obituary for Caroline Messall. My family notes had it also listed as Treugott/Traugott Menzel.Another variation of last name may be Mentzel.He was born June 16, 1832 Zedel Kurzendorf, Sorau, Germany. He married Caroline Messall m. 1863. She was born October 23, 1846 and died January 17, 1914. Traugert is buried in Blocker Cemetery (no marker remaining) near Home, KS SE of Marysville, KS (Marshall KS). Caroline is buried at the Marysville cemetery. Her obituary states Caroline rather than Karoline. Caroline was daughter of Micheal Messal (only one L )and Anna Ludwiga Jannott Messal. Caroline was born Gratz, Posen, Preussen. They had many children. Their eldest son was Gustave "Gus" E. Menzel buried in Enid, Oklahoma with his wife Anna E. Wengert (also spelled Wingert/Winger) Menzel. He was my great-grandfather. I am very intersted in updating this entire line and have much information already. I also can share a photograph with other family members, and hope that they can place some of the unknown faces to me. I will send you information, please write me. Patty
Also, interested in their religion.Must not have been Lutheran or would have moved to Hermansberg, KS.
