1 1930 Census indicates William was first married at the age of 22. He married Annie Groenwald Featherstone at the age of 47. Family F824
2 A friend, Tim Holekamp told me that there is not town of Stetrin, Germany but there is a Stettin, Germany. Since the original info came from a U.S. produced document I am assuming there was a transcription/translation error and have changed the spelling.

Also I found a death record for August Groenwald that I believe is the correct death record. August and Rosalie may have separated as she shows up in the 1910 and 1920 census wit the kids but no August. Then he dies on 10 Jun 1927 (if my guess is correct) and she dies 20 Dec 1928. Too much of a coincidence until I can check further, possibly with the St. Joseph Cemetery, River Grove, Cook, IL where some other family members were buried. Rosalie was buried in St. Boniface Cemetery, Chicago, Cook, IL, where other family members are also buried. 
Groenwald, August (I288)
3 Birth Cert for Theodore Durfke indicates he was the 7th child for Paulina. Groenwald, Paulina (I885)
4 Birth Cert indicates Katy Paulina is the 4th child for Frank and Mathilda Groenwald, Katy Paulina (I2221)
5 Burial was originally written as St. Boniface Cemetery but then crossed out and appears to be Wunders Cemetery, but a search of people buried there did not come up with a gravesite. Groenwald, Robert (I1251)
