Roder, Carl G. (10 Dec 1831 - 11 May 1914)
Carl Gottlieb Roder was born Dec. 10, 1831 in Silesia in Germany. He had lost both parents during infancy and was brought up by his guardian. On Oct. 25th, 1854 he was united in marriage with Miss Anna R. Handtke, who died Nov. 3, 1905. With his wife and two oldest children he immigrated to America in June of 1866 and landed in Sheboygan Co., Wis., where he made his home until Oct. 1870. He then moved to Clark Co., settling upon a farm in the town of Grant, where he has since resided until his death, which occurred on May 11, 1914 from the effects of a stroke of paralysis.
To them were seven children, two of who died in infancy. He is survived by five children, namely: August of Neillsville; (Christine) Mrs. Henry Sterns of Duluth, Minn.; (Ernestine) Mrs. Ernest Nitschke of Lynn, Paul on the home farm in Grant and (Emelia) Mrs. Carl Krause of Grant; and also twenty grandchildren.
He was brought up in the German Lutheran faith and was a devout member of that church during a long life.
