ALDERMAN 3RD WARD JOLIET, ILLS ... (reverse) J. Schuck
[Badge, 2-inch, gold, six-pointed star; given to Wm. John Schuck]

<=====>

My mom told me that the Schucks came from the Alsace region of France, perhaps Strasbourg. I recently saw a mathematics paper, translated from French by a Schuck from there, Peter perhaps, but I don't remember. Remembering to accents from Joliet, I believe our great-grandfather may have been a French speaker. Dad said the name is German but I wonder if he wasn't somehow embarrassed by the French. I can remember my dad saying that French 'sounded like baby talk'. [Bill Schuck]

<=====>

The family always believed that John Schuck was murdered. He was a contractor and, as was the custom in those days, he went to collect a debt on New Year's Day. They thought he should have had about $200.00 for building a house but there was nothing like that amount found on him. Peter did speak French but I believe the French speaking came from the Gorges family rather than the Schuck side. [Kathryn Scherer Schuck] 14 15

<=====>

I saw your gravestone transcriptions on FamilyTreeMaker.com and thought I'd drop you a line. My mother's family and I are from Joliet, IL. I've only recently begun my genealogy search and began by requesting a copy of a marriage license between my great-grandparents, Joseph Hausser and Mary Weber. On the marriage license, it gives Mary's parents names as Peter W. Weber and Elisabeth Schuch. I couldn't find anything else on this name. Perhaps it's Schuck? Elisabeth Schuch Weber's DOB is around 9/1829 (born in Germany) per census data. I also know that the Weber's lived on Hickory Street and probably attended St. John's. I know that's where the Haussers went to church and they lived with the Webers for a time.

Most of my research so far has been confined to a few documents and online census records. The 1900 census indicates that Elisabeth was naturalized in 1847. I have to try and find her naturalization papers. That may give us some additional clues.

I was pouring through your page and think I found a connection! The sponsors for the baptism of Joseph Louis Schuch were Joseph and Margaret Hausser!! My great-grandparents were Joseph and Mary Hausser. They were married in May of 1883. This baptism was in August of that same year. I don't know of any sister Joseph had so I think the name may have been recorded incorrectly.

Peter W. Weber was the administrator of Jacob Schuch's estate per your documentation. This was my Mary Hausser's father, Elisabeth Schuch's husband.

I also happened upon your file for Elizabeth Schuch/Peter Weber on Ancestry.com and downloaded it. I think the portion you're missing are the additional children these two had. In the 1900 census, the Haussers are living with P.W. Weber and Elizabeth Weber. Their dates of birth are given as 5/1833 and 9/1829 respectively. Mary's DOB is 2/1864. Their address is 410 N. Hickory St. (two doors down from St. John's). This census established the link for me between my Hausser relations and the Webers. The Hausser children listed were definitely my great aunts and uncles. I knew several of them. The oldest Hausser daughter, Mary L. was my grandmother.

The 1900 census also tells us that Elizabeth had SIX children - three of which were living at the time. It also tells us that they immigrated in 1847 and became naturalized in 1853.

Working backwards, I found the family still on North Hickory street in the 1880 census. P.W. is 48 years old and Elizabeth is 51. This supports your 1832 DOB for Peter rather than the 1833 shown in the 1900 census. Peter was a Justice of the Peace at the time. They have two daughters at home - Mary (16) and Annie (14). If your info on John W. is correct, he would be 22 and already out of the house (probably). I'm guessing John, Mary and Annie are the three surviving children. I know nothing about Annie other than the census data. The gap in age between John and Mary is probably where the deceased children would have fit in. Peter and John were also painters and had a business called P.W. Weber & Son. It appears they were also in the cigar business at some point. This data is from the Joliet City Directories information (1890 Census Substitute).

I'm not able to find Mary Weber Hausser on any census after 1900. I assume she died between 1902 and 1910. Her youngest child was born in 1902. I know she died within a few years from asthma. My grandmother raised most of the younger siblings. Joseph Hausser was a painter who specialized in the gold finishing of church steeples. He also had a wonderful operatic voice. My grandmother told my mother than people used to come to St. John's to hear him sing when he would solo in the choir. A wealthy family in the parish wanted to sponsor him to go to Europe to study. It was out of the question as he was a single parent with 10 children to support.

My mom also remembers her mom and aunt taking her to Aurora, Illinois to see their aunt. This aunt was a nun working/living at a hospital. She thinks her name was Sister Carmelita or something similar.... [Jody Marie Green] 16 17

ALDERMAN SCHUCH FOUND

A Gastly Discovery at Porter and Water's Stone Quarries


This morning, about 10 o'clock, Willie McLean, a boy about 16 years old and employed as water carrier at Porter & Waters quarries, made a discovery that at once startled him and the men, who for a week have been quarrying stone at this place.

In the quarries is a hole, about fifteen feet deep, made from excavations last year, which is now and has all winter been filled with water. Sticking up through the tissue of ice which covered its surface the boy saw what seemed like the shoulders and head of a man, and he called his father's attention to the matter and word was sent to police headquarters from the street car barn. The Coroner and a jury soon appeared. A heavy body, much swollen from the water, was fished out. The clothing was in perfect order, but all parts of the skin exposed, - his hands and face - were covered with a whitened substance which peeled off, looking like a light colored calico and proved to be the cuticle. When this was removed the skin had a bright red appearance. Over the left eye was a deep cut, about three inches long.

The coroner found in the pockets a receipt for $50, signed by E. Fischer and dated Aug. 7, '84, $9.35 in money, a knife, a pocket handkerchief and a membership ticket in the Joliet Turnverein. The features were so swollen that the body could hardly be recognized save for the chin whiskers. The receipt and turners ticket, however, fully identified the body as the ex-alderman.

The jury gave a verdict of accidental death.

Mrs. Schuch and her eight children were horrified, and when the sad news was conveyed to them and the widow is almost prostrated with grief over the verification of her worst fears and the blasting of the last hope that he might be still living.

Preparations for the proper interment of the remains are being made.

Dear Parents,

By the numerous and costly presents you bestow upon me on Christmas day, you intended to increase my festal joy over the birth of the Divine Infant, Jesus. These gifts however also gave evidence of your boundless love toward your unworthy child, which is then compelled to regard you, next to God, as his greatest benefactor.

To these kind presents I now offer my first and most cordial congratulations for the New Year. May almighty God bless you, dear parents, with a long and contented life, with health and - last, but not least - with the crown of everlasting bliss!

Praying to God, that these my hearty wishes may be fulfilled I promise to show my gratitude by my future good behavior, by obedience and by a great zeal in my studies, hoping thus to render myself worthy to be

Your son

Dearly beloved parents!

This first day of the New Year reminds me of my duty to send you my very best wishes. May you celebrate this day many more times. May your pathways of life last for many years in constant health and constant peace. Oh how truly happy I would be if I was able to write down my heartfelt thanks just the way I feel, and if I could show you in deeds how much I honor and respect you. However I am comforted by the knowledge that you know my heart and that you give me your love and parental blessing.

Dearest Parents!

God may give perfect health and a contented heart to you in this New Year. I thank you for all the joy that you have given to me in the past year and also for the tender sorrows that you had because of me. I will try to give you joy by using diligence and obedience in order to at least in some way make up for all the kindness you have shown me. This is the most sincere wish of your grateful child

Dear Parents!

With joy and jubilation I am greeting this very day. If ever there is a reason of joy for a child it is the first day of a new year. God has kept you alive out of his love til this very day, my dear parents, you who are the most precious and dearest to me on earth. I am still so small and inexperienced and still need your guidance and protection so very much; and no day has been forgotten in which I could not notice the proof of your loving care for me. Unfortunately I have not always shown my gratitude for it because I have caused you much grief and trouble because of my bad behavior. I am very sorry about that and I promise by using good behavior, constant diligence and joyous obedience to doubly make up for what I missed in the past. I will daily expressly ask God at mass that the New Year will be a year of the richest blessings and greatest joy for you. This wishing and hoping for from the bottom of my heart,

Your grateful son,
Jakob

Dear Mother,

Again a year has gone by and a new one has begun. Gone is the one with its joys and pleasant things, but also with its sufferings, sorrows and heartaches.

I have to confess that in the past year I unfortunately have not always acted in a way that is appropriate for a good and grateful child. Often I did not respond to your teachings and admonitions or did not obey willingly and joyfully. I am deeply sorry and promise to be an obedient and loving son in the future. Also, I shall not forget to ask God daily that you may live for a long, long time and that we all shall meet again at some future day at God's throne. This wish is from the bottom of my heart.

Your grateful son,

<=====>

I have a story my dad told. When he was a boy he was walking by a drinking establishment and heard this German music he never heard before. While standing there his Uncle Joe came by and asked him what he was doing and my dad told him he was listening to the music. This remark Uncle Joe made to him always made my dad wonder, 'I don't want you to listen to that music. Those people made my family come to America'.

The answer may lie in history. I think reading Napoleon III; The German Confederation; The July Revolution, 1830; Revolution 1848 may be the answer. I was also told the family came from the Alsace region. Also, on the remark Uncle Joe made to my dad. 'My Uncle Joe was an easy going, funny, loving person and I never saw him act like that. It frightened me,' My dad kept that event to himself for many years.

My dad and your father spent a lot of time at the Aunts' house. My dad said the room they slept in was at the top of the stairs. My dad liked hearing the rain fall on the metal. I spent a few times at the Aunts' house and slept in the same room. I never heard the rain fall on the metal roof. [Barbara Schuck Rosales] 62 63 64 65 66 67 68 69 70

Liebste Eltern!
Gott schenke Ihnen auch in diesem neuen Jahr eine vollkommene Gesundheit und ein zufriedenes Herz, Ich danke Ihnen für die vielen Freuden welche Sie bisher meinetwegen gehabt haben.

Liebe Mutter!
Wiederum ist ein Jahr verflossen und ein neues hat seinen Anfang genommen. Hin ist dasselbe mit Freuden und Annähmlichkeiten, aber auch mit seinen leiden, Sorgen und Kümmernissen.
Ich muß bekennen, daß ich im verflossenen Jahre leider nicht immer so gehandelt habe, wie es sich für ein gutes und dankbares Kind geziemt. Nicht selten habe ich Deine Belehrungen und Ermahnungen unverwirklicht gelassen, oder bin nicht willig und freudig gefolgt. Dies thut mir von Herzen leid und verspreche in Zukunft ein gehorsamer und liebevoller Sohn sein zu wollen. Auch werde ich nicht vergessen, täglich den lieben Gott bitten daß Du noch recht lange, lange leben möchtest und daß wir uns alle dereinstens wiedersehen am Throne seiner Herrlichkeit. Dies wünscht vor ganzem Hezen.
Ihr dankbarer Sohn
Wilhelm.

Liebe Mutter!
Glück, Heil und Segen wünsche ich Dir am ersten Tag des neuen Jahres. Mit Freuden begrüße ich diesen Tag, weil mir der liebe Gott das theuerste, was ich auf Erden habe, erhalten hat. Ich verspreche Dir, liebe Mutter, in dem begonnenen Jahre durch Fleiß und Gehorsam noch viele Freude zu machen. Ich will auch oft andächtig zum lieben Gott beten, damit er Dich noch recht lange leben und Dich mit Glück und Segen überhäufen möge.
Dies ist der aufrichtigste Wunsch.
Deines dankbaren Sohnes
Wilhelm.
