Picture of Elizabeth Stahler Rossman in 1930

Elizabeth Stahler Rossman


Elizabeth Stahler was a sister of my great-grandmother, Clara M. Stahler. Elizabeth was born February 23, 1850 in Koller (Little Kohler) in Fredonia, Wisconsin. She was the daughter of Jacob Stahler and Catharine Turk.

Elizabeth was called "Lizzie" by everyone. The picture above shows her on a farm in Wisconsin in 1930.

Elizabeth married Henry C. Rossman, a carpenter by trade. He was also a minor politician. He eventually deserted his family and went to Oklahoma to "find his fortune" in the oil fields. Only his son Henry Jr. maintained any further contact with his father after he left.

Elizabeth and Henry had the following children. I believe all of them were born in Chicago, Cook County, Illinois where Henry and Elizabeth made their home.

Elizabeth Stahler Rossman died September 2, 1932 in Chicago, Cook County, Illinois. Her death notice in the Chicago Tribune reads as follows.

Elizabeth Rossman, nee Stahler, beloved wife of the late Henry C., fond mother of the late Mrs. Augusta Stoltz, Peter C., Henry C., Mrs. Lillian Blum, Mrs. Maud McClain, and Benjamin H. Funeral Monday from late residence, 6150 Vernon av., at 9 a. m. to St. Anselm's church. Mass at 9:30 a. m. Interment Holy Sepulchre.
