  • Notes 
    • 12 Jun 1859--second marriage doc.

      Joseph Oyer/Schrock died in Tazewell County Dec. 28, 1851. Probate Record H 1851-53 shows that Andrew Roth applied to become administrator of his estate at Pekin Feb. 2, 1852. Peter Good [Guth] stood as guarantor for his $300 bond. An unnamed widow is mentioned as heir, but not a daughter (Anna would have been almost three months old at the time of this Joseph's death). Estate appraisers included Nicholas Roth and Benjamin Rediger. Some of the names of people purchasing items at auction included Andrew Roth, Nicholas Roth, Daniel Roth, Joseph Oyer, and John Springer.

      The Illinois Statewide Marriage Index, transcribed from original entries, lists a marriage between Joseph Schrock and Catharine Schrock (the widow Catherine Ringenberg) in Tazewell County June 12, 1859. The family origins of the groom are unknown - and it is very possible that this was not his true name. Apparently, Catherine became pregnant immediately.

      Source cites this second marriage doc as a new husband named Joseph Schrock, when in actuality it is probably correction of the first document.
