Wilhelmina POTTSCHMIDT was born 25 Sep 1843 in Prussia (Germany) to William and Henrietta POTTSCHMIDT. She came to the US in 1846.
Frederich and Wilhelmina were married about 1861. Most likely in Minnesota. They had 10 children: William Fred about 1864, Elizabeth about 1866, Anna in Apr 1867, Henry Fred about 1868, Louis Fred "Fred" and Charles Fred on 1 Oct 1871, Emma about 1876, Edward Fred in Oct 1878, Minna in Jan 1882, and Ida in Apr 1886. I don't know when Frederich died other then it was before 5 Aug 1908, but Wilhelmina died 28 Oct 1936 in Jordan, Scott county, Minnesota. I also have a memorial for Wilhelmina at findagrave.
