Note: This 1894 Census indicates Elizabeth has had 11 children with 10 still living.


1861 census - LUTHERAN and living in WELLESLEY: Likely attended ST. PAUL’S LUTHERAN CHURCH. This church may have records for the death of Christian and Maria. And may be found at the Waterloo County archives.


1861 census shows Christian and Maria were married in 1824. If this is accurate, and their ages shown were also accurate, Christian would have been 13 and Maria would have been only 8 years old. The marriage date should be closer to 1834 with their first son, Christian Jr. being born in 1836.


Christian died at age 89 years. He was buried on 05/03/1900 at Lakeside Cemetery, Port Huron, St. Clair County, Michigan, USA under the name Christian GADTKE.
