These six are the 'greats' we grew up with, mostly un-aware of the others, right?
So, what happened to John, Frank, Joe, Paul and Stephen, and the adopted kids?
Well, Stephen died as an infant, and
Paul Jr died "out west" at 20 years old.
Frank went to work on the railroad and
died in Oshkosh, Wisconsin in 1922.
John evidently had a form of rheumatism and moved around the county looking for relief, but didn't find it. He married Katie Mueller. They had five children who survived his death in January of 1926, in Buckman.
Grandpas' brother Joseph died when his shotgun accidently went off when he was returning from one of his fields. That was in October of 1926, 9 months after John died. What a sad year for that family!
Joe was married to Anna Heurung, and they had seven kids.
And, here's another Otremba connection: Anna subsequently married John B. Otremba who was 16 years older than she was. This is the family Paul (Bunyan) Hesch came from, up in Brainerd (scroll down, his story is here already...lol)
Some of those obits mention a "Mrs Max Klein" as a sister of the deceased, so I assume that was Lucy, and Paul Doyle moved to Minneapolis but stayed close to brother Math's family all his life.
