Albert KROEGER was editor of the Missouri Volksfreund
SOURCES: Albert's birth date, his parents' names and his emigration year were found in an entry for him in the book Illustrated Sketch Book and Directory of Jefferson City and Cole County, 1900. This biography was also the source of information about his marriage and children. Because other persons with the same surname who were living in Jefferson City were known to have come from Dalum, the Gross Hesepe parish records were checked and a corresponding birth/baptism entry found there for Gerhard Bernard Albert just 2 days earlier than the birthdate given for him in the book.

KROEGER, Herman Wilhelm Joseph
BORN: Mar 30, 1843, Aselage (parish in Herzlake)
PARENTS: Joseph KROEGER
Maria Adelheid WESTENDORF
EMIGRATION: 1862
MARRIED: Maria RUY her entry, widow of KOTTE
marriage: Feb 26, 1878, Aviston, Clinton County, IL

NOTES: 1900 OH census, Hamilton County, Millcreek twp
KROEGER, Herman J, Mar 1846, Germany, marr 23, emgr 1862
Maggie A, Aug 1845, Germany, 1 of 6 ch, emgr 1871
Maggie A, Apr 1875, IL
SOURCES:

Herman's approximate year of birth was known from his age on the 1900 census . His parents were named on his marriage record at St Francis of Assisi parish and they were known to have been residents of Herzlake parish in the 1840s. That same parish's records were checked and a birth/bapt entry was found there for Herman Wilhelm Joseph with the correct parents but 3 years earlier than the birth year on the census. There was no Herman born to the correct couple between 1843 and 1852 so this 1843 birthdate is presumed to be correct.
