Life Events

Common NameShe was usually known as Minnie. 
Birth*Philomena Katherine Velten was born on 16 September 1894 in Saint Louis, Missouri. She was born at home, at 2027 Howard Street. Assisting at the birth was Mrs. Meinhardt, a midwife.1,2,3,4 
She was the daughter of Joseph Frank Velten and Mary Anna Simmons
BaptismShe was baptized on 30 September 1894 in St. Liborius Church, located in Saint Louis, Saint Louis City, Missouri. She was baptized Maria Catharina Philomaena at St. Liborius Church by the Rev. Henry Minges. Her sponsor was Margaretha Kerper.1,2 
Baptism NameHer baptism name was Maria Catharina Philomaena Velten.2 
(daughters) Census 1900Minnie was listed as a daughter in the household of Joseph Velten (given age 40) on the 1900 Census in Capp's Creek Township, Barry County, Missouri.5 
(daughters) Census 1910Minnie was listed as a daughter in the household of Joseph Velten (given age 50) on the 1910 Census recorded 3 May 1910 in Pierce City, Lawrence County, Missouri.6 
Marriage LicenseMinnie Velten and William Asa Gilstrap obtained a marriage license on 20 January 1916 in Boonville, Logan County, Arkansas. They applied for the marriage license and posted bond at the Logan County courthouse in Boonville, where both resided at the time.7 
Marriage*Minnie married William Asa Gilstrap on 22 January 1916 in Van Buren, Crawford County, Arkansas. They were married, not in Boonville, but in Van Buren at St. Michael's Catholic Church by the pastor, the Rev. Harold J. Heagney.7 
ResearchNote*
     Research Note: The marriage return specifies a St. Nichol's Church in Crawford County as the place of marriage, but no St. Nichol's church is found. Since the minister's name was spelled differently in the two places in the record it appears, it is not likely Fr. Heagney made the entry himself. And since Fr. Heagney was the pastor of St. Michael's Church in Van Buren from 1913-1916, it is most probable that the marriage occurred there and the clerk misunderstod Michael for Nichol. See the history of St. Michael's church at http://stmichaelscatholicchurch.com/history.asp

At the time of registration, Ed lived at 1659 Congress Street in Chicago and worked as a stationary fireman at the Sears and Roebuck located at Homan and Harvard.
