       The Horn Families of Prussia and Presque Isle County, Michigan

The HORN family tree that follows consists of the three families that came to Presque Isle County in the 1870’s.   Upon arrival to North America from their provinces of Pommern in Prussia in the 1860’s all three first settled in  Detroit,  Michigan.   Some  of  their  children  remained  in  Detroit.   However, most of them came to Crawford’s Quarry and purchased land in Rogers and Belknap Townships in Presque Isle County.

 3.  Friedrich Christian Johann2 Horn (Christian Friedrich1) was born April 13, 1816 in Kreis Stolp, Hinterpommern,  Prussia, and died June 14, 1880 in Rogers Township, Rogers City, Michigan.  Friedrich was buried 16 June 1880 in the Memorial Park Cemetery in rogers City.  He married Wilhelmine Henrietta Teßmeyer 1844 in Klötzin, (Parish Schvilelbein), Kreis Belgard, Hinterpommern, Prussia.  She was born 1823 in Pommern, Prussia, and died April 20, 1894 in Rogers City, Michigan.  Wilhelmine was buried 23 April 1894 in the Memorial Park Cemetery in Rogers City.

   A lengthy history of Rogers City and the establishment of the Lutheran Churches in Presque Isle County, Michigan is listed separately on the Presque Isle County, Web site.  The article tells the story of Friedrich Horn as written by his sons, Robert and Karl.

   Friedrich, Wihelmine and their children came from the village of Klötzin, Parish Schivelbein, Kreis Belgard, Hinterpommern, Prussia.  Klötzin is 12 km (9 miles) north of Schivelbein.  It was founded in 1370.  Klötzin had the oldest "Fachwerkenkirchen" [ornately decorated church] in all of Pommern.  On the site of the church is written:  "Dis Haus ist ein Bethaus und ist Gott zu Ehren  gebwedet Anno 1588, und er ist Johannes" TRANSLATION:  "This House is a prayers house and honors God - built in 1588, and is called St. John.  Author's note:  Wonder if this is the reason Friedrich chose the name Sankt Johannes [St. John] for the first church he built in Presque Isle County, Michigan?  Today the village of Klötzin is named Klodzino, Poland.
   The ships Manifest shows Wilhemine, age 42, and Friedrich Horn, age 48, arriving in Quebec, Canada on May 21, 1865 on the vessel, KEPPLER, that left from Hamburg on April 18, 1865.  With them on the boat were their children: Bertha, age 19; Robert, age 17; Anna, age 12; and Carl, age 3.  From Quebec they traveled to Detroit, possibly to stay with Friedrich's sister and husband, the Johann and Christine [Horn] Nagel family.  According to church records from the Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Detroit, as researched by the sainted Rev. Dr. Gilbert Otte, longtime pastor at Trinity, it shows the John Nagels had 6 children.  Friedrich and Wilhemine Horn and their children also became members at Trinity.

   The 1870 Detroit census records show:
       HORN,  Fredric, age 54 - carpenter
                    Wilhelmina, age 47 - keeping house
                    Robert, age 22 - cartwright (buggy and wagon maker)
                    Carl, age 3 - at school (Trinity)

   From the Rogers City Advance it is stated Friedrich and Wilhemine along with daughter, Bertha and son-in-law, Heinrich (Carl) Armstaedt (see note on Bertha Horn and Heinrich Armstaedt), and son, Carl, came to Rogers City, Michigan in 1870 with his parents. Their oldest son, Robert, remained in Detroit working as a cartwright until 1872 after saving up enough money and then came to Rogers City.  Daughter, Anna, remained in Detroit, eventually marrying Frederick Reif, and remained in Detroit. However, Wilhemine longed to be back in Detroit as she missed the sound of the bells of Trinity Church.

   After Friedrich Horn's death in 14 June 1880 in Rogers City,  a HORN burial plot was purchased in the Rogers City Memorial Park Cemetery. The plot provided eight burials.  The following is the order of the burials:
1. Friedrich Christian Horn - d. 14 June 1880 - a large tall marker.
2. Wilhemine (nee Tessymiar) Horn - d. 20 April 1894 - no gravestone.
3. Carl (Charles) Horn - d. 27 March 1927 - with a gravestone.
4. Robert Horn  - d. 17 Oct 1929 - a foot marker.
5. Bertha, nee Quade, Horn - d. 1937 - buried next to husband Carl (Charles) - no gravestone.
6. Fredrick Charles Horn (only son of Carl and Bertha) - d.  19 July 1954 - buried next to his son, Robert Charles Horn.
7. Paul Horn, gr grandson of Friedrich, - d. 18 Nov 1958 - with a gravestone.
8.  Edna, nee Fisher, Horn - d. 25 Oct 1977 - buried next to her husband, Fredrich and son, Robert Horn.

   Regarding names:  The ship record of passengers shows Friedrich, not Christian; also shows Wilhemine.  On the tombstone in the Rogers City Memorial Park is inscribed Christian Friedrich Horn.  Then in the Charles Horn family tree of 1973 is stated, Henrietta Tessymiar Horn died.  Evidently, the birth names were Friedrich Christian Horn and Wilhemine Henrietta Tessymiar.  It is possible their preferred names by family members were Christian and Henrietta.

Generation No. 3

 5.  Caroline3 Nagel (Christiane 'Christine'2 Horn, Christian Friedrich1) was born April 04, 1830 in Pommern, Prussia, and died 1924 in Belknap Township [Rogers City], Michigan.  She married Leopold August Poch Abt. 1856 in Prussia.  He was born 1817 in Gross Dübsow,  Pommern ,Prussia, and died 1889 in Belknap Township [Rogers City], Michigan.

   From the 1920 census Rogers Township census, Caroline is shown living with Emil and Lizzie [Elowsky] Poch on Erie Street in Rogers City.
   A reference is made that shows her name as Caroline Nagel Florip.  At this time, it is not known if she possibly married a Florip after August's death.
   The death record of their son,Hermann Poch in 1905,  shows Leopolt as his father instead of August.
   August was a sponsor for Ida Emma Rettke, b. 12 March 1869 and baptized 28 March 1869 by the Rev. Johann Adam Huegli in the Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church of Detroit, Michigan.  The other sponsors were Alvine Ziesow and Gustav Zisow.  Ida Emma Rettke was the daughter of August Rettke and Lisette geb. Ziesow.
   The IGI records show August was born in 1832.
   From the 75th Anniversary Edition of the Advance is this article:  "March 7, 1884 - The new farm house of Mr. Poch, of the town of Belknap, is a very large frame building, contains 15 windows, is clapboarded, has a handsome cornice, is elegantly painted, and the principal doors are grained in oak and nicely varnished.  Sets of varnished deer horns surmount two or three of the outside doors facing the Town road and give the building quite a picturesque appearance.  This structure is quite a credit to the whole township and should be an example to other farmers in this county who are amply able to build themselves better dwelling houses and should do so if they wish their children to take pride in the farm."
   The farm was deeded to August Poch 5 Nov 1887 from Herman Hoeft.   Previous owner is listed as Michael Elowsky, deed dated 17 July 1891.  Also on the deed is Michael Elowsky Miller of Posen.  Another deed shows August Poch to Rudolph Poch 28 Aug 1889.   Evidently, August Poch died in 1889 to give the deed to his son, Rudolph.

Children of Caroline Nagel and Leopold Poch are:
+ 25 i. Hermann Albert Gustav4 Poch, born June 04, 1856 in Prussia; died March 24, 1905 in Detroit  [Wayne County], Michigan.
 26 ii. Louis Poch, born December 1860 in Prussia; died Aft. 1920 in Rogers Township [Presque Isle County], Michigan.
   In 1910 Louis is living with his mother, Caroline [Nagel] Poch in Belknap Township.  The 1920 Rogers Township federal census shows Louis Poch, age 59,  living at the Wenzel Poor Farm.
                                Louis is buried in the  Memorial Park Cemetery - Rogers City, Michigan
+ 27 iii. Emil Wilhelm Poch, born June 17, 1865 in Detroit, Michigan; died August 15, 1951 in Rogers City, Michigan.

 6.  Mary Louise3 Nagel (Christiane 'Christine'2 Horn, Christian Friedrich1) was born 1832 in Mohrin, Kreis Koenigsberg, Brandenburg, Prussia.  She married Johann Gottlieb Zimmerman Abt. 1955.  He was born 1830 in Mohrin, Kreis Koenigsberg, Brandenburg, Prussia.

Child of Mary Nagel and Johann Zimmerman is:
+ 30 i. John4 Zimmerman, born 1858 in Prussia; died Aft. 1920.

 7.  Friedrich3 Nagel, Sr. (Christiane 'Christine'2 Horn, Christian Friedrich1) was born July 30, 1834 in Mohrin, Kreis Koenigsburg, Brandenburg, Prussia, and died September 02, 1903 in Belknap Township [Rogers City], Michigan.  He married Caroline Witt August 03, 1865 in Trinity  Evangelical Lutheran Church - Detroit, Michigan, daughter of Ludwig Witt.  She was born October 01, 1842 in Kreis Lauenburg, Hinterpommmern, Prussia, and died October 09, 1921 in Belknap Township [Rogers City], Michigan.   Death was by his own hand.   Both are buried in the Memorial Park Cemetery in Rogers City.

   The Trinity Lutheran Cemetery [Mt. Elliot] - Detroit, MI shows that Friedrich Nagel purchaed a burial plot [Lot 4 Section B] on 4 October 1869 for $12.50.   On 22 March 1936 the deed to the plot was given to Henriette Nagel [wife of Ludwig Nagel].   Ludwig was the brother of Friedrich.
   Buried on this plot are child Nagel [no date listed, but probably 1869]: Otto Nagel buried on 21 Aug 1942; Christiane Nagel buried 26 March 1873; Ludwig Nagel buried 18 Jan 1929; Henriette Nagel buried 23 Nov 1939.

    Three things point to the possible relation of Caroline, nee Witt, Nagel to John Papke, Henrietta Papke Flemming, and Ludwig Papke: 1. Ralph Pugh was told by Herbert Nagel that the Papke's and Nagel's were related back in the 19th century.  2. John's crude tombstone (the one born in 1800 and died 1885) was made by the same person who made John Papke's in 1885 and Mrs. Ludwig Papke's in 1902.  3. Julius Nagel, Caroline Witt Nagel's son, stood up in August Papke's baptism in 1885.

   The witnesses of the marriage Friedrich and Caroline by the Rev. Johann Adam Huegli in the Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church of Detroit, Michigan were John Wick and Georg Gengerke - both of Detroit, MI.

   An Advance newspaper article that is dated 19 April 1917 states: "Mrs. Henry Almstead passed away Tuesday and was buried Sunday afternoon.  She leaves 3 daughters and 5 sons."
    Carl Algenstaedt arrived alone in America on the ship, KEPPLER, on October 27, 1863 from Hamburg to New York.  The ships record also states the following:  Left Hamburg, Germany on September 17, 1863,  age 25, knecht (male, farm servant laborer), from BANTOW - Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany, to MI.
    NOTE: a " KNECHT"  was a young  male farmhand or servant, someone who did not have his own house.  A KNECHT lived on someone's farm in farm buildings (Gesindehaus) all through their life together with the farmer-owner and his family, or until he married.  The meals and lodging were provided.

   The spelling of the last name ARMSTAEDT is recorded in the 1870 census record of Clinton Township, Macomb County.  The spelling ARMSTÄDT is recorded in the Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church, Detroit, Michigan church records.
   In Charles and Robert Horns  translations of the history of Rogers City and the Lutheran Churches of Northern Michigan,  they spell the last name ALMSTEDT.  The name on the charter membership of St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church is - HENRY ALMSTAEDT.
   On their sons Wilhelm, Karl, and Eduard's Denksprach (Confirmation) certificates that are dated 1888, 1892, and 1896 the name is spelled ALGENSTÄDT  or ALGENSTAEDT.   On the tombstone for Heinrich and Bertha is ALGENSTAEDT as seen in the St. James Evangelical Lutheran Church Cemetery in Moltke Township.
   The tombstones for William and Francis, Fred, Carl, Edward, and Otto/Margaretha use the name ALGENSTEDT as seen in the St. James Evangelical Lutheran Church Cemetery in Moltke Township on Ward Branch Road.    Today, there is an ALGENSTEDT Highway in Moltke Township.
   I have no record stating the name changes.  However, it is interesting that Carl entered America as ALGENSTAEDT and died in Moltke as ALGENSTAEDT.  He was known as Henry, although the baptism, marriage, and ship record shows his first name as Carl.  For this family book the last name will be spelled Armstadt.

   In the fall of 1892, Henry had broken his knee cap.  The doctor drove a nail into it, and died as a result of it.
   From the Presque Isle County Democrat [newspaper] vol. 2 #45 - dated 29 December 1892 is the following article:
   "Henry Armstead of the township of Moltke, who suffered an excision of the knee joint about 2 months ago, and whose serious illness we chronicled in a preceding issue, died last Thursday morning from septicemia [blood poisoning].  The funeral took place on Sunday last and was largely attended by sorrowing relatives and friends."
   The 8 December 1892 Advance issue states the following:  "Frederick Armstead of Moltke who suffered an excision of the knee-joint some six weeks ago is reported in a critical condition and no hope is now entertained for his recovery."

   The original Trinity Church  in Detroit was a wood frame chapel of the Western Seamen's Society on Woodbridge St.  That was moved to Larned and Rivard Streets in downtown Detroit.  This very building is where Berth Horn married Carl Armstädt.  A week later, Trinity moved into their new brick, Gothic church on Gratiot.  In 1931, the Goth brick church was replaced by the present day Gothic Cathedral.

He married Mathilda Auguste Wenzel November 22, 1874 in St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church - Rogers City, Michigan, daughter of Johann ‘Henry’ Wenzel and Karolena Finder.  She was born 1855 in Röstenberg, Arnswalde,  Brandenburg, Prussia, and died June 30, 1935 in Doylestown [Bucks County], Pennsylvania.  Mathilda was buried 3 July 1935 in the Myrtle Hill Cemetery – syracuse, New York.

   Robert remained in Detroit when his parents, Friedrich and Wilhelmine and his brother Charles (Carl) Horn left for Presque Isle County (Rogers City), Michigan in 1871.  Robert came in early 1873 after accruing enough money from his profession as a wheel cartwright in Detroit.  In August 1873 he became a charter member of the St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church in Rogers City.  His father was instrumental in gathering together the pioneer Lutherans of Presque Isle County that led to the formation of the following  Lutheran Churches in 1873:  St. John's - Rogers City; St. Michael's - Belknap; and Immanuel - Moltke; St. Paul - Posen.
   Robert met his wife, Mathilde Wenzel in Rogers City.  They remained in Rogers City until 1890 when Robert became the proprietor of the Dry Dock Hotel -  459 Atwater - Detroit, Michigan.  The 1895 Detroit city directory shows that Robert Horn was proprietor of the St. Lawrence Hotel at the corner of Atwater and Randolph.  Shown boarding there were Anna [Wenzel] - Peter H MacCorquodale, machinist.   In 1900-1901 the Detroit city directory shows Robert Horn [Horn and Reinke] with house at 23 Lysander.  In 1901 and 1902 Robert Horn is shown as agent with a house at 23 Lysander.  He is not listed in Detroit for the 1903 directory.
   In Detroit, they took membership at the Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Detroit.   That is where son, Paul was confirmed in 1891, and daughter Elsie was baptized in 1893.   In late 1901 or early 1902 Robert, his wife Mathilde, their daughters Anna and Elsie moved to Syracuse, NY.  They became members of First Evangelical Lutheran Church there, and lived at Solvang [Onondaga County], NY, a suburb of Syracuse.   Robert died just 2 months before his brother, Charles.
   For the 50th anniversary of St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church in Rogers City in 1923, Robert and his younger brother, Charles (Carl) wrote a history of Rogers City and the Lutheran Churches of Presque Isle County, Michigan.  This was published in the German language in book form.  For the 75th Anniversary of the Lutheran Churches and of Rogers City, that book was translated into the English language.  The accounts were then printed in the Rogers City Newspaper, the Advance.  The Accounts were repeated for the 100th Anniversary.  NOTE: The entire account of the history of Rogers City and of the Lutheran Churches is found from another PI GenWeb page.

  From the 75th Anniversary Edition of the Advance is this article: " March 8, 1883 - Mr. Robert J. Horn who has for many years been in charge of the Herman Hoeft store in Rogers City, has entered into a co-partnership with Mr. Frederick Kiel, of Detroit and they together have purchased the store and stock in trade of Mr.Hoeft who henceforth will confine himself to his lumber, cordwood, cedar and dock business. The new firm have our sincere approval for their new business prosperity."
   "June 28, 1883 - Robert J.Horn and Mr. McMillan, better known as "Shorty," took a trip to the Ocqueoc River this week on a fishing excursion.  We learn they had a jolly time fishing, caught several hundred pounds of pike and bass and saw some 25 or 30 deer."

   The Syracuse [Onondaga County, New York] Post Standard Sunday edition of 16 Jan 1927 - page 25: column 4 lists Robert's obituary as follows:
   "HORN In Solvay, January 1927, Robert J.

   On Monday 17 Jan 1927 the following was included: "Funeral at 2 p.m.  Burial in Myrtle Hill Cemetery."  NOTE: Myrtle Hill Cemetery - 112 Andrews Street - Syracuse, NY 13219

   From the Presque Isle County Advance, dated 21 Jan 1927 is the following obituary for Robert:
   "Charles Horn received word Saturday [Jan 21] of the death of his brother, Robert, at the latter's house in Syracuse, NY, about 4 o'clock that morning.  The news came as quite a shock to Mr. Horn and to friends here who knew Mr Robert Horn in days gone by.  The deceased leaves a wife, one son, two daughters and his one brother, Charles, of this city.  Funeral services were held at Syracuse and internment made there."
   "In 1886 he moved to Detroit and was in the hotel business there for several years and then became an employee of the Solvay Process Co. of Syracuse and was working for this concern until his health failed."

   Mathilde came to America with her parents, brothers, sister, and grandparents in 1870 from the neighboring villages of Röstenberg [today it is named ROSCIN, Poland] and Neu Körtnitz [doesn't exist today in Poland].   These villages were in the Neumarck of Kreis Arnswalde, in the country of Brandenburg, Prussia.
   Mathilde and her parents, brothers, sister and grandparents lived in Detroit until 1970 when they all went to Crawford's Quarry [Rogers City today], Presque Isle County, Michigan.
  She met and married Robert Horn in Rogers City.  Their home became the Lutheran Church parsonage.
  The obituary for Mathilde is taken from the Syracuse Post Standard newspaper dated - Tuesday, 2 July 1935 on page 20 column 5:

 61 ii. Anna Louise Horn, born November 27, 1880 in Rogers City [Presque Isle County], Michigan; died July 09, 1970 in Solvay [ Syracuse] - Onondaga County, New York.  She married John F Dohm, Jr. Aft. 1929; born 1878; died January 09, 1962 in Solvay [Syracuse] - Onondaga County, New York.  Anna and John are buried in the Myrtle Hill Cemetery – Syracuse, New York on the same plot as her parents.
   Anna was baptized 19 Dec 1880 by the Rev. David Joel Druckenmiller in the St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church in Rogers City, Michigan.  Her sponsors were Gustav Wenzel, Carl Horn, and Alma Kuhlmann.
   Anna was confirmed at Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church, Detroit, Michigan on March 18, 1894 by the Rev. Dr. Johannes Adam Huegli.    Her Memory Verse for life was Romans 8:28.   She was in the first confirmation class in the newly built Trinity Brick Gothic Church on Gratiot.
   In 1901 Anna moved to Syracuse, NY with her parents and sister, Elsie.  She became a communicant member of First Evangelical Lutheran Church in Syracuse.  According to Mrs. A. G. Huegli of Rochester Hills, Michigan Elsie married a young man by the name of Cole, and had a daughter Hollis.  While in Detroit Anna and her cousin, Lydia were very close friends.
   The 1918 Syracuse, NY city directory shows Anna L. Horn, clerk, and living at 308 Charles Ave. in Solvay, NY.
   From the 1928-1929 Syracuse, New York city directory, Anna is show as Anna L Horn, a comptometer operator for Crouse-Hinds Co. in Syracuse.  She is also shown living with Edgar Z. and Elsie Cole, and her mother Matilda A. Horn, widow of Robert Horn.  They all live at 308 Charles Ave. in Solvay, NY
   Anna married the widower, John F Dohm some years after John's first wife, Ora May, died at age 39 on 24 May 1921.   Since the 1928-1929 Syracuse City directory shows Anna L Horn as a comptometer at Crouse-Hinds Co., it can be assumed she married after 1929.  No children were born to Ann and John.  However, John had a child from his previous marriage - Lois Dohm.
   Anna, John and Ora May Dohm are buried in Section B3 - Lot 235 in Myrtle Hill Cemetery, Syracuse, NY.
  The 1940 Syracuse directory shows John F. and Anna L. Dohm living at 103 Parsons Dr. in Geddes [Onondaga County], N Y.

+ 62 iii. Elsie Anna Horn, born Mar 27, 1893 in Detroit, MI; died December 23, 1979 in Camillus [Onondaga County], NY.

 15.  Anna Louise Mathilde3 Horn (Friedrich Christian Johann2, Christian Friedrich1) was born October 11, 1853 in Klötzin, Kreis Belgard, Hinterpommern, Prussia, and died July 17, 1896 in Harper Hospital - Detroit, Michigan.  Anna was buried 19 July 1895 in the Trinity Lutheran Cemetery – Detroit.  She married Friederich Julius John Reif I May 02, 1875 in Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church - Detroit, Michigan, son of Johann Reif and Nanette Deinzer.  He was born July 06, 1853 in Detroit, Michigan, and died December 29, 1928 of pneumonia in Detroit, Michigan.  He was buried 1 Jan 1929 in the Trinity Lutheran Cemetery – Detroit.

   Anna was in the first class that was confirmed in the new Gothic Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church on Gratiot and Rivard in Detroit, Michigan.  She was confirmed by the Rev. Johann Adam Huegli on Palm Sunday 1867
   Anna and Frederick were members of Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Detroit, Michigan. Anna did not go to Presque Isle County with the rest of the Friedrich Horn family in 1870.
   The 1870 Federal Census for Wayne County [Detroit] shows Anna living with the John Reif family as a domestic servant.
    Friederick Reif was baptized on July 10, 1853 as George Frederick and confirmed on 2 March 1866 in the Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Detroit, Michigan by the Rev. Johann Adam Huegli.  His name on the confirmation register shows Friedrich Julius with the Julius crossed out and George written.
   The 1870 Detroit - Ward 6 census shows Friedrich Reif, age 17 , upholsterer, living with his father, John [a tailor], and his brothers John age 11, John age 7; and sister Babetta age 10.   Also living in the home is his future wife, Anna Horn age 16 - a domectic servant.  Friedrich's mother died 5 years earlier.
    In the church directory he is listed as being a furniture maker. The Detroit city directory of 1880 states Friedrich is an upholsterer for Kirchberg - Winterhalter - Keenon in Detroit.  In the Detroit city directory of 1890,  Frederick was a managing director and partner of the James J Keenan-Adolph Jahn Fine Furniture Company with showrooms at 213 - 217 Woodward Avenue - in the area of the Fox Theater. His residence at that time is listed as 119 Napolean.   In later years he opened his own shop on Mack Avenue near Detroit Boulevard.  He made much of the furniture that was ordered.
   He and Anna were devoted members of the Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Detroit.  He and Rev. Johann Adam Huegli were life long friends.
   Trinity Church directory of 1926 listed Friederich Reifs, Sr.'s address at 3484 Sheridan, Detroit, MI.  Friedrich Sr. was a speaker at Trinity Church's 75th anniversary on October 20, 1926.  The banquet Anniversary was held at the St. Mark's Church basement on East Grand Boulevard - between Forest and Canfield Avenue, since Trinity didn't have facilities to accommodate the large attendance.  He was a church Vestryman for 13 years.
  Trinity Church records show that Anna Louise Horn, age 22, and Friedrich Julius (crossed out and George inserted) Reif, age 21, an upholsterer, married on 2 May 1875 with witnesses: Johann Dienzer and Johann Reif.  Evidently, shortly after their marriage Friedrich and Anna moved to Toledo, Ohio, since their first child was born there.   However, they came back to reside in Detroit.  Their children attended the Trinity School that stood on the property behind the church.

Children of Anna Horn and Friederich Reif are:
 63 i. Julius Friederich4 Reif, born April 05, 1871 in Detroit, Michigan; died August 27, 1885 in Detroit, Michigan. The Trinity Cemetery record show Julius died of 'dissimbemy'. He was buried 30 Aug 1885 in the Trinity Lutheran Cemetery – Detroit.

 16.  Charles 'Carl' Friedrich August Ernst3 Horn (Friedrich Christian Johann2, Christian Friedrich1) was born December 22, 1861 in Klotzin, (Parish Schivelbein), Kreis Belgard, Hinterommern, Prussia, and died March 25, 1927 in Rogers City, Michigan.  He was buried 29 March 1927 in the Memorial Park Cemetery – Rogers City.  He married Bertha Louise Quade August 31, 1884 in St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church - Rogers City, Michigan, daughter of August Quade and Augusta Buah.  She was born September 24, 1862 in Kallies, Kreis Dramburg, Hinterpommern, Germany, and died September 14, 1937 in Imlay City, Michigan.  She was buried 27 September 1937 in the Horn plot of Memorial Park Cemetery – Rogers City.

    Charles was confirmed April 25, 1875 by the Rev. Joseph Antonius Bohn in the original St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church on First Street in Rogers City that was built by his father Friedrich Christian Horn.  He is listed as the 5th person confirmed.  He was a member of the 2nd confirmation class at St. John's Church.
   Charles owned and farmed 40 acres of land near Rogers City (Rogers Township).  Charles also was a farm machinery merchant.  The Horn School was built on the farm.  Charles and Bertha Quade were married August 31, 1884 in the original St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church.
    Notes on Emma, nee Horn, Adrian as told by Bob Adrian:
   Her father always went by the name of Charles while he was living.  And although German born, he spoke English fluently with little or no accent which should not be too surprising as he was very young at the time of immigration.  However, my mother, Bertha, nee Quade, Horn, on the other hand was much more clingish to the German.  She came to America as a teenager, learned and used English when absolutely necessary, but felt much more comfortable in the German.  After Charles (Carl) death Emma, his daughter, had a stone erected in his memory, but, too her astonishment, she had it inscribed with the name "Carl" rather than "Charles."

   The following is the Obituary from the Presque Isle County Advance weekly newspaper:
WELL KNOWN AND RESPECTED CITIZEN DIED THURSDAY AT MIDNIGHT FROM HEART DISEASE-SUDDEN ATTACK

   Charles Horn, for many years a resident of Rogers City and numbered among the city's most respected citizens, died suddenly at his home on Erie Street about eleven thirty o'clock Thursday night.  For some time he has suffered from heart disease and his death came to him suddenly and painlessly.  Mr. Horn had been feeling unwell for a short time and went to the kitchen to sit by the fire and feeling better returned to his bed, but fell just as he reached it.  He roused from his stupor in a moment or two and asked his wife who was bending over him, asked what had happened, then passed into unconsciousness again and died in a few moments.  He was 65 years of age.
   While Mr. Horn's death came as a great shock to members of his family and to friends, his condition for some time had been such that his death could not be entirely unexpected.  Several years past he had retired to a quiet life after more active duty having been informed by his physician that his heart was in a serious condition and that he could no longer endure the strain of heavier work nor the activity of his younger days.  It is not unlikely that Mr. Horn knew his condition better than any one else and realized that he might be called, but it was no deterrent to his pleasant and cheerful disposition.  We believe we are correct to say that he was cordially liked and most respected in this community where he had for many years made his home.
   Funeral services were held Monday afternoon from St. John's Lutheran Church at two o'clock and there was not a vacant seat in the church, in fact many of the friends who had come to pay their last respects could not get into the church.  Pastor Ernest Ross spoke most fittingly of the deceased.  Mr. Horn had been a life long member of the church and his body was borne to its last resting place by brother officers of the church and old friends: Max C Kuhlman, A.P. Bertram, G.W. Grambau, Oswald Bruder, August Flemming, and Charles Detloff Jr.  Music during the service was rendered by organist H.F. Hansen and Mrss Cora Flemmming and Mrs. Ben Santimao sang a vocal number.  Undertaker Kerley had charge of the funeral assisted by Undertaker Charles Atkins of Millersburg.
   Mr Horn was born in Klötzin, Kreis Belgard, Pomerania, Germany in 1861, and came to this country with his parents in 1865.  They settled first in Detroit and later came to Presque Isle County in the year 1872 when he was eleven years of age.  Mr Horn's father, Christian Friedrich Horn, was a carpenter by trade and built some of the first buildings in Rogers City, among them the old Lutheran Church on First Street, the first church built in the county and which has since burned down and also the Hoeft store building, now the A.F. Lehndorff and Son Hardware.  His father also built the Wenzel home on First Street, where the family lived for a number of years.  It was that house which also served as the first parsonage of the Lutheran Church.
   Charles Horn took up farming as an occupation as a young man and for a number of years framed in Rogers Township, coming to Rogers City about twenty-five years ago (1902).  He was married in 1884 to Miss Bertha Quade.
   He bought his present home on Erie Street from Joseph Smith, now of Posen, and the family lived there since.  During his residence here Mr. Horn served most capably in a number of public offices.  He was in various times Village treasurer, member of the county poor commission, and had served one year as township treasurer.  He was highly thought of and had many friends.
   Surviving him are his widow, two daughters, Mrs. Emma (Frederick) Adrian, living near Yale and Miss Edith, at home, and one son, Fred (Edna) Horn of this city.  Mr. and Mrs. Adrian arrived here Saturday for the funeral services.
   He was preceded in death by his parents: Friedrich Christian and Wilhelmine Henriette Tessemiar Horn; by his brother Robert Julius Horn who died only two months ago in Syracuse, New York: and by his sisters - Bertha Emilie Auguste Horn Algenstaedt of Moltke Township and Anna Louise Mathilde Horn Reif in Detroit, Michigan.
   Bertha was the oldest child of August and Augusta Quade.  She lived in a small village of Kallies, Kreis Dramburg, Hinter Pommern, West Prussia.  Today it is named Kalisz Pomorski, Poland.  While still in school she worked as a shepherdess, and told of earning money for her confirmation clothes.  One item of luxury was a pair of white woolen stockings (leggings) which she knit out of fine yarn with her name "BERTHA" knitted into each leg.  When she had the first one done, the sheep got away and she had to chase them.  While doing so, she could not find the missing sock.  She didn't complain much of having to knit the third sock, but it sure wrecked her finances to buy the extra yarn.
   The year after her confirmation in the Lutheran faith, her brother, CHARLES QUADE, had also completed his schooling and was also confirmed in the Lutheran faith.  With the permission of their parents, they both went off to Berlin, where work was more plentiful and wages better.  They were there about three years when one day Charles heard of the wonderful opportunities that were available in America.  The Civil War depression was about to an end.  Factories in the North were at full swing again and the American Federal Government had been advertising in many European papers for workers of all kinds.  The "West" was being opened up and much land was being made available for lumbering and farming - all for little, and sometimes NO money needed.
   The particular advertisement that had caught Charles Quade's attentions was from firms in New York and Boston.  The firm would send boat tickets to any ambitious young man or woman who wanted to work in America.  The stipulation was that the immigrant would be obliged to work for the firm until they had earned the price of the boat ticket.  Bertha Quade would have a job in a big college in New York that wanted young girls to work in the laundry room and do the fine starched laundry.
   After talking the whole thing over with their parents, and with some reluctance on the part of their parents, August and Augusta Quade, the two teenagers, picked up their tickets and set sail for the golden opportunities of the New World, America, and New York.
   When they were only a couple days out of Germany across the Atlantic, they ran into trouble.  Something had gone wrong with the rudder of their ship and it couldn't be fixed.  They were at the mercy of the wind and the waves.  Drifting out of the shipping lanes, they lost track of time.  The captain put his crew and passengers on strict rations until they were down to just hard tack and water.  And finally to a half piece of hard tack and a half cup of water every morning and evening.  Just as all hope seemed to be fading away, the wind must have shifted.  They found they had drifted back into the shipping lanes where they saw another ship in the distance.  The other ship had also seen them and came to their rescue.  The rescue ship was able to tow them towards New York, BUT even more important to the hungry passengers, it was able to give them much needed food and fresh water.
   The news of their rescue got to New York ahead of them, probably by way of fishing boats, and ladies in New York baked "goodies" and made pots of stew and soup and came down to the harbor.  The city band came and played.  The hot food was hoisted up to them, as the happy, elated, and thankful passengers sang and shouted to the people on shore.  Not many emigrants were welcomed into New York the way Bertha and Charles were.
   One of the first things Bertha and Charles did was to write to their parents in Germany.  There had been a period of mourning for their parents because the news had been brought to Germany that their ship had been lost at sea with no survivors.  Their parents, August and Augusta, were reassured enough so that a few years later, they allowed two more of their children, Anna and William Quade, apply for ship tickets to America.
   After their quarantine period on Ellis Island in the New York harbor, they went to their jobs.  They next four years were spent in New York.  It was sometime during the year 1880 that they had arrived in America.
   In one of the letters from their folks in Germany, the two were informed that an Aunt and Uncle, Ferdinand and Augusta [Quade] Wenzel, and his sons, Otto and Reinhard Wenzel, had come to America in 1882 and had moved to a place called Rogers City, Michigan.  So they started writing to the Wenzels and were encouraged by the Wenzels to come to the "north country" in Michigan.  They mentioned to Charles Q. that if they had thought New York was opportunity, both he and Bertha should see Rogers City.  The wages he would earn in the lumber camp were unbelievable.  And there was land to be had by just filing a claim.  To someone who had never expected to own as much as a square inch of ground the idea of forty acres was just too much.  He tried to persuade Bertha to go, but for a long time she was reluctant.  Finally he won out and late in the summer of 1884 they both quit their jobs and bought train tickets to Detroit.
   From Detroit they took the boat to Rogers City where Uncle Wenzel met them with his horse and wagon.  As they started for his home they passed a few buildings (and fewer people).  They rode and rode and rode.  Finally Bertha asked how much farther it was until they would reach Rogers City.  Her uncle Wenzel was irked with her as he asked what she thought that cluster of houses was they had passed a while back.  At that point Bertha could have "cried her eyes out".  She thought it was some kind of suburb - after having lived in Berlin and New York, it sure didn't look like much of a "city".
   Charles soon found work and acquired that 40 acres of land.  Bertha, too, soon became known as a hard working young lady and found work also.  She also found a young handsome, Christian gentleman from a well-known family in Rogers City and Presque Isle County.  That young man was CHARLES HORN.  Bertha might have thought she had been left out at the end of the work when she had arrived in Rogers City, but she found new strength and faith when she found Charles Horn.  Courting, engagement, and one of the most beautiful weddings in the old First Street St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church, soon followed in 1884.  Great grandfather Friedrich Christian Horn, Charles Horn's father,  had built the church literally with his own hands.
   Bertha and Charles Horn made their home in Rogers City.  Bertha had put in her time as being a "hired out  girl" and now started to think about raising her own family.  In 1886 came the first arrival, Matilda, but our Heavenly Father in His wisdom took the little girl back to Himself in heaven at birth.
   April 7, 1887 brought joy and gaiety back into the Horn home at the birth of another daughter, Emma Louise Horn.  On November 23, 1894 their only son, Friedrich Robert Horn, was born.  Their last child, a daughter, Edith Ann Horn, was born December 29, 1904, making  Emma  17 and Friedrich  10 years old at the time.
   1894 had both sad and happy events.  Friedrich was born that year, and August and Augusta Quade, and their two sons, Gustav and Otto,  arrived in Rogers City from Germany,  Everyone was saddened by the death of Great-grandmother Wilhemine Henrietta (Tessymiar) Horn, wife of the original Horn to Rogers City; namely, Friedrich Christian Horn.   She was buried from the St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church and interred in the Memorial Park Cemetery, next to her husband in the Horn plot.
   This is the beginning of the story - not the end.  The story is still going on and will be going on for quite some time.

Luth. Church - Metz, MI, daughter of Albert Legner and Johanna Wetzel.  She was born October 06, 1902 in Metz, Michigan, and died September 30, 1976 in Rogers City, Michigan.
 
 

   On July 21, 1895 Heinrich Emil Friedrich Knopf was baptized by the Rev. Bruno Potzger in the St. Michael's Evangelical Lutheran Church at Belknap (Rogers City), Michigan.  His sponsors were Heinrich Wenzel [uncle], Fritz Almstedt [uncle], and Emilie Flemming [aunt].
   On April 4, 1909 [Palm Sunday] Heinrich was confirmed in St. Michael's Church by the Rev. H. W. Essig.
   As a young man Henry would harness and yoke oxen to plow the fields.  His Uncle Paul Knopf stayed at the Knopf homestead helping with the farm work.
   Henry enlisted in the United States Army on May 27, 1918.  He was assigned with Company "D" - 16th Infantry.
    Battles, engagements, skirmishes and expeditions he was involved in were at St. Mihiel and Muse Argonne.   He served both in Germany and France.
   On July 22, 1919 Henry was discharged.  He was entitled travel expenses of $60.00 to Rogers City AND $130.00 including $60.00 bonus by Capt. B. C. Moore at Camp Mead, Maryland on September 5, 1919.  Henry left Camp Mead September 24, 1919 for his journey to Rogers City and the Knopf farm.
   At the Knopf farm, Henry and his father, Hermann, grew wheat, oats, barley, potatoes, and corn for silage. They also has herds of sheep, dairy cows, chickens,  hogs , young stock (beef animals), and much hay.
   On July 15, 1930 the farm was transferred to Henry and Helma from Hermann.  Henry then started to develop a purebred Holstein dairy herd.  However, in 1940 the herd developed brucellosis and had to be destroyed.  This didn't hamper Henry's desire to continue a dairy herd.  It was at this time he began to introduce purebred brown Swiss cattle.  Brown Swiss had the dual advantage of producing high butterfat milk content and also providing quality salable beef.  Henry's cousin, Edward Flemming, would stay at the Knopf home as a hired man.
   The other crops were continued to be grown and larger acreage of potatoes were grown.  To accommodate a greater acreage of potatoes and a larger herd meant the need for more land.  Henry purchased the Richardson Lumber land and the Emil and Lizzie [Elowsky] Poch farm on 2 March 1921.  The farm now grew to 360 acres.  With help from his sons, Eldon, Donald, and Elwood, justice was done to the large acreage. Until 1949, all farm work was done with horses.  When Henry purchased the first Farm-all H in 1949 the horses were phased out.  A year later a Farm-all M  was purchased.  Other machinery was purchased that speeded farm work: a grain combine, a hay baler, manure loader, 4 bottom plow, and milkers.
   Fences were taken down, raising hogs ceased, potato growing stopped.  More time and effort were put in the dairy production exclusively.  Nationally there was a greater need for lower butterfat milk.  That is when his son, Eldon, started introducing Holstein dairy cows to his herd.
   On March 31, 1965 Henry and Helma turned over the ownership of the Knopf farm to his oldest son, Eldon and his wife Sally (Kuechenmeister).  They continue to operate it as a cash crop farm.  Eldon sold the registered Holstein dairy herd in the spring of 2000.
   In 1973 the farm was designated as a Michigan Centennial Farm - owned and operated by the same family for one hundred or more years.
   In 1965 Henry and Helma moved to the newly remodeled "old" Belknap Township Hall, directly across from the farm.
   Henry died at age 87 and is buried in the St. Michael's (Belknap) Church Cemetery.  The pallbearers were Alvin Elowsky, Edwin Elowsky, Emil Zeglevsky, Donald Bromund, Thomas Knopf, and Herman Rosteck.
   Helma Margaretha Legner was baptized November 2, 1902 from St. Peter's Evangelical Lutheran Church in Metz, Michigan by the Rev. Ernst Thieme.  Her sponsors were Paul Hardies, Amanda Hoffmann and Emilie Roehring.   Emilie [Molkentin] married Frederick Heinrich Johann Roehring on 29 Nov 1882 in the Immanuel Evangelical Lutheran Church in Alpena, MI.  How she is connected to the Legner family is not known.   The Roehrings are buried in the St. Peter's Cemetery.
   The St. Peter's Lutheran Church of Metz was dedicated 1 July 1909.  The Rev. Peter Klueppel of Archbold, Ohio and the Rev. Bruechnen of Alpena presided over the dedicatory service, assisted by the pastor, Rev. Ernest Thieme.  On March 28, 1915 Helma was confirmed by the Rev. Rudolf Muenzinger at St. Peter's Church.
  In the 1920's Helma worked in Detroit as a switchboard operator.
   In 1928, when back from Detroit and at her parents farm in Metz, she answered the door to find a young, handsome gentleman who had driven up in a brand new 1928 Chrysler sedan.  This gentleman was checking on a horse that the Legners  were selling.  In the meantime, Helma's interest was in this handsome young man - Henry Knopf.
  On a Wednesday, November 6, 1929 Henry and Helma were married at the St. Peter's Evangelical Lutheran Church in Metz, Michigan by the Rev. Albert  R. Seemann.  Their witnesses were Alfred Legner, Louise Wenzel, Fred Knopf, and Nona Miner.  The text was Genesis 2, verse 18.
   They made their home in Belknap Township on the Knopf homestead farm, directly across from the Belknap Township Hall.  In retirement they bought the Township Hall and remodeled it for their home.  In December, 1998   there was a fire in the upstairs of the old Township Hall.  The "house" was torn down, much salvageable lumber was saved by Stan Reese [son-in-law of Eldon and Sally Knopf],and used in the construction of his appliance repair shop.
   Helma was a "gourmet" cook; sausage maker; baker, sewer; seamstress; gardener; berry-picker; Tiger fan; canner of fruits, vegetable, meats; immaculate house keeper; knitter; crocheter; Spitzer and game player; crossword puzzle solver; recipe saver; letter writer; devoted to her church and faith; and a respected family manager.
   Helma observed many Pommern traditions brought from the "old country" - Pommerellen, West Prussia; namely,
       1.  On Good Friday all bedding would be taken outdoors to be aired.  The mattresses also would be put on "horses", and beaten.   This was to ward off any bedbugs during the year.
       2.  NO baking would be done on Good Friday.  Or all baked goods would be as hard as board.
       3.  St. Swithins day, July 15, was always observed.  If it rained that day there would be 40 days of rain.  If the weather was fair that day there would be "perfect" for the next 40 days.
       4.  Kulich (Easter Bread) and Pashka (molded cream confection) were only made on Holy Saturday.
       5.  The children would fill a potato crate half full of straw, line the crate on the edge of the porch for the Easter rabbit.
       6.  The parents on Easter Eve would dye eggs using the dried skins of onions, which were boiled to make a deep maroon egg color.
       7.  The last 12 days of December indicated the weather for the months of the following.  For each day the weather was recorded on the calendar, and then written on each month of the following new year.
       8.  Sow seeds only on the correct sign of the moon, differing from root plants and those producing on stems.
       9.  Save all rainwater from the eaves/downspouts in barrels to be used for a soft water in doing laundry.
     10.  2nd Christmas Day [December 26] and Easter Monday were important Holy days - holidays with attendance of Church Services.

   Following are some recipes from the kitchen of Helma Knopf:
 

             FRUIT CHUTNEY

14 large ripe tomatoes, peeled and chopped
  6 large peaches, pared, pitted and chopped
  6 pears, pared, cored, and chopped
  2 onions, chopped
  2 cloves garlic, minced
  2 cups cider vinegar
  2 cups granulated sugar
  1 Tablespoon salt
  2 Tablespoons pickling spice, tied in cloth
1 1/2 cups celery, chopped

   Drain chopped tomatoes well.  In large kettle mix tomatoes with fruits and vegetables, the sugar, vinegar and salt.  Add the bag of spices.  Heat to boiling; boil gently, uncovered, for 2 hours.  Remove spice bag; pour sauce into hot, clean canning jars (1 pint size).  Seal immediately.  Makes 8 pints.
   NOTE:  Helma would make this in the fall.  Today we would call this Salsa.
 

           GERMAN  POTATO  SALAD

6 cups diced, cooked potatoes
2/3 cup diced, fried bacon pieces
2 medium chopped onions
6 tablespoons flour
3/4 teaspoon dry mustard
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoon ground pepper
1 1/2 cups vinegar
1 1/2 cups water

   Fry the bacon until crisp.  Drain.  Cook the potatoes in water until done.  Meanwhile blend together the flour, mustard, sugar, salt, pepper, vinegar, and water.  Cook in a large frying pan until thickened.  The pan used for the bacon is suitable.  In fact, the browned bacon residue will make the sauce better.  Stir in the potatoes, onions, and bacon mixing well.  Place the potato mixture in a serving dish.  Sprinkle with parsley or bits of green onion.  Serve warm.  Serves 10-12.
