A Rootdigger

I did publish a little other information at A rootdiggers blog. I thought it would be good to link us together. I plan to close a few postings over there. I would like the concentration of Maves and Yoeckes, Hein, and Hasse, Husby, and a few other related surnames to be seen here.

A Rootdigger: "fresh blood line found with familes Genealogy of Charles Maves family
A few days before Halloween a buddy told me her daughter did some research and found out the Maves family is related to that daughter's son. She knew I had some data that I could put my finger on for this family. So a few of these blogs are in honor of that news. I always like to find fresh blood.........lines. tee hee.
So I hope that explains the title. lol. It was about three years ago on Halloween eve as I was checking my emails, I discovered that I had been the Fresh blood line found by my Mothers relative. I razzed him about it. He never confessed to the implication. I suspect it was his humor. At Halloween as I think of this, it makes me smile every time.

She must have done good research because the mother told me about land records and even told me the parents Of Herbert Maves. I do hope I have something here that she does not already have! And I hope she will share her Roth information with me.

At any rate this is the tree that the newly discovered blood line of Maves they fall into.

I. Father: Julius Frederick Maves.
Mother: Charlotte Louise Schwane.

II. Father: Johann Gottlieb MAVES.
Mother: Caroline YOEKES.

III. Charles MAVES
*Born: 18.SEP.1848 at Stettin, Germany
00 Married: 19 JAN 1869.
[Father:Johann Gottlieb MAVES].
Spouse: Augusta Hein"

Johann Gottlieb MAVES/Caroline YOEKES

Caroline Yoecks was married to Johann Maves. I haven't spent enough research time on the Yokes family. I have found a few other Yokes in the Dunn county area. I did find quite a bit on the Maves family. My interest started with their Hein - Hine family. Also the Hasse surname has some intrique. Due to interest in various surnames on A Rootdigger I made several posts there about the Maves family.
Lets start with one big source for my found data on the Maves family. Maves came to America with Destination to Chicago. They spent several years in other counties than just Dunn county, Wisconsin. Later some of the young men went to California to make their fortune in the housing industry. You will find this information posted at A Rootdigger.

Yoeckes, Yoke, Joeckes, and Jockes

I took this from a message board at Roots web/ 'community' area.
I may try and follow this a bit if I can. I should spend a little time on the family Yokes. Yokes is a family name in connection with the family name Maves. Mews, Mewes.

was my grandmother-in-law. Johanna was born
in 1879, at ELK MOUND, DUNN, WI. Her father was PEDER NILSEN born 1815 at
RIGEREKE, BUSKERUD, NORWAY. Johanna married ALBERT SORENSON, they moved to
where they raised four children. Johanna lived the rest of her
life in ST.PAUL except for a short time in CLOQUET, MN
where ALBERT worked
as a carpenter. Her son, Melvin SORENSON was my father-in-law. I have no dates
other than what is here, if anyone has information to this family please write
Thank You."

Note: Besides the reference to Yoeckes, I note the emphasis on Buskerud Norway. In the Meyer family tree, I found that the Oleson family at Hazel Run, Yellow Medicine county in Minnesota traced back to Buskerud. A descendent had married Irma Martin. from Madelia Minnesota. I think If I recall correctly the wife was a daughter of Peter in that Oleson line from Buskerud. There was alos a Sorenson family across the street from the Martins house at Madelia. And Joannie Nelson live quite a bit aways down the street. [hmmm!! Should I look in to it now or not] [naahhh]

Re: SEARCHING TRANDUM, NELSON, SWANT, YOKES - Dunn - Family History & Genealogy Message Board -

Note: Strange as it sounds; I over heard something once at a thrift sale in the village of Menomonie. A lady who I think was a Peterson [ How could I have found out that?] say she had been to Granite Falls. I mentioned something about it to her that I had been there and she said to me that she doubted I had been there that far away. No i just let it go as we were strangers just talking. So that has always made me wonder, if there are more than one. Now I wonder if it was the one by Hazel Rrun Minnesota. So remind me to check into Oleson / Petersen of Buskerude -- Descendents in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Note: Nelson/ Nelsen family has married into Husby family. I also do not know history of this family either.

Do you see now how one can keep so busy, because one

family line Possibly could run into another???.

My!!! How one can get distracted!!!

I have to get to the roots of it all.

There is no way around it. I am here to stay. As long as I can have a say in it.

Issues. Issues all galore.
