* Bartelt Family Genealogy*

Updated January 8, 2001


The Bartelt's that I have been researching lived in the late 1800's in and around the Wausau, WI area. Gottlieb Bartelt was born on Feb 7, 1847 in Pommern, Prussia and emmigrated in 1878 aboard the SS. Frisia. Unfortunately, he emigrated alone. A genealogy report done in 1936 lists 1 brother William Bartelt, born in 1849 living in Wausau, WI. Gottlieb was born to Michael Friedrich (I was told Wilhelm) Bartelt and Minnie Gruetzmahcer. I found an IGI Record listing the marriage of Michael F. and Wilhemine on Dec. 8, 1846 in Priemhausen, Naugard Stadt, Pommern, Prussia. Gottlieb was buried in Pine Grove Cemetary with his tombstone spelled BARTTELT.

There are many stories involving the extra T. One is that the gov't stole the T from him upon emigration. In fact Gottlieb's 1st son, Fred's marriage certificate reads BARTTELT. Another is that the tombstone maker made a mistake.

Most of Gottliebs children stayed in and around Marathon County, Wisconsin. Some moved to Muscatine, Iowa.

During the voyage the ship caught fire twice and provisions ran short so short that they were without food for three days. They landed in New York on May 10, 1857 and went directly to Rock Island County, ILL. where they obtained work for fifty cents a day. They settled in Buffalo Prairie, ILL and later moved to a farm near Nichols. At age eleven she was confirmed in the Protestant Evangelical Church. She spent her time as a housewife in Nichols, IA.
