After their marriage, Michael and Catherine lived with Catherine's parents on their farm in Huron township in Erie county, near Sandusky. Their first three children, Mary, Joseph, and Margaret were born in Erie county.5,6

PhotoBelow is a photograph of the Velten home in Capps Creek Township, Barry County, Missouri. Sitting in front are Michael Velten and his wife, Katherine [Milller] Velten, holding the family Bible. The chair with the doll to the left of Michael represents Cora, the youngest daughter who was boarding in town while attending school. Standing, from left: Joe, holding son Frank; his wife, Mary Anna Simmons; John Velton; Ida Rose Velten; and Charles David Velten, with the fiddle. The date on the photograph would be about 1885, shortly after the birth of Frank, my grandfather, in 1884.

The young trees in the backgound are Black Walnut trees. They are still standing today and engulf the front of the house. Unfortunately, the house is abandoned and falling down, the land having been sold to a cattle rancher in Monett who uses the land to graze stock.

The official date of this census was 1 Jun 1900. Also living in the household were, her daughter, Ida R. Velton (given age 23) .

Will*She made a will, dated December 1915 and signed in Pierce City, Lawrence County, Missouri. When the will was signed and witnessed, the participants neglected to fill in the actual day of signing. Witnesses were J. K. Saunders and Robert T. Ruschitzka.

Katherine originally named Joseph Weinzirl to be Executor of the will, but his name was crossed out and replaced by the name of her son, Charles D. Velten. Joseph Weinzirl was alive in 1920 and lived until 1924. But since he would have been 72 years old in 1920, perhaps he was infirm or otherwise unable to carry out the job of Executor.

In her will, Katherine listed her living and deceased children: Joseph, Maggie, John, Peter, Charles D., Ida R., Katie and Cora, all alive in 1915; and Mary and Jacob, who died before 1915. Mary and Jacob's living children were also listed. Living children of Mary included: Frank, Leo, Edmond, Julia, Melia, Katie, and Lena. Jacob's son John is listed.

The following is the text of the will as it was typed, with spelling and capitalization as it appeared, but with some missing spaces inserted for readability.17

Michael and Katherine Velten Tombstone
ProbateKatherine's will was probated 2 May 1920 in Mount Vernon, Lawrence County, Missouri. Since J. K. Saunders, one of the witnesses, died before Katherine, extra steps were needed to prove the will, but it was accepted for probate on 13 Feb 1920 by Probate Court Judge Scott B. Dayton. On the same date, the Executor of the estate filed an Application for Letters Testamentary or of Administration, listing the value of the Estate to be $7000 personal property and $400 real property. Of more interest was the list of heirs and their place of residence, as follows.18

  2. The county birth record and church baptism record differ by one day. The baptism record lists the dates of both birth and baptism as June 28. Since the baptism record is more likely to be entered the day of the event, and its date of birth predates the county birth date, the date of birth is believed to be June 28, rather than the June 29 date listed in the county birth register. In addition, the church record records the child's name as Jacob William, which was the name used by this person during his lifetime. The county register records the name as "Barney Willhelm".
