Response--Obit: Steevens, Martha Schaefer (1887 - 1975)

Contact: Craig Michalak


Martha Steevens (nee Schaefer) was my grandmother.

Here are some corrections/additions: Born Jan 25, 1893 in Stetsonville WI Married to William Adam Steevens on Sept 28, 1914 Died Carpentersville IL Jan 4, 1987

William Steevens died Dec 11, 1968

I have her family from Saxony. She communicated with Regina Poge (o umlaut) in Pirna, Germany just outside Dresden in WWII who was a relative.

Do you have additional info on her family?

From what I have her parents were Emil Ernest Schaefer b 10/21/1853 died 12/43/1934 and Caroline Reichel (Reitschel, or Richtal) d 1912. Both from Saxony.

I have been unable to connect the family of Steevens or Schaefer to Germany.
