857 JOHN SCHROEDER, DELAWARE STREET, DIES THIS MORNING - Suffered Strooke [sic] of Paralysis Last June; Lived Here Forty Years John Schroeder, a resident of Freeport for forty years, passed away at his home, 28 Delaware street, at 6:45 o'clock this morning. His passing was due to a stroke of paralysis which he suffered on June first. Mr. Schroeder had also suffered a stroke on the 25th of last January. He had been confined to his bed since the second stroke and although he suffered greatly from his affliction he bore his sufferings with patience and fortitude. He was one of the founders and a charter member of the German Lutheran church of this city. He had been a member of that church since coming to Freeport in 1877. For seventeen years he had been employed at the Arcade Manufacturing company's plant. Decedent was born at Mecklenburg, Germany, March 27, 1846. He was married in that country in 1872 to Miss Sophia Schwiegert. Mr. and Mrs. Schroeder came to American in 1874. They resided in Chicago for three years and then came to Freeport, where they had since made their home. Mrs. Schroeder passed away one year and eleven months ago. The following children survive: John Schroeder, Mrs. Fred Long, Henry Schroeder, and Miss Emma Schroeder, all of Freeport, and Mrs. John Heerkes, of Rockford. One sister, Mrs. Charles Voelkner, resides at Oconomowoc, Wis. Eight grandchildren and one great grandchild also survive. Funeral services will be be held from the late home, 28 Delaware street, at 1:30 o'clock Monday afternoon and a half hour later from the German Lutheran church. Rev. Louis Seidel will officiate and burial will be made in the city cemetery. John J. Schroeder

859 In Section GG, west edge, about midpoint of the section. It appears that when she died, her son John placed a "mother" stone to mark her place, and then, when he died, a headstone with both their names and dates was placed. The "mother" stone lies between two rows of stones. Sophia M. Schröder
 
860 The oldest record I have for the family is the 1867 Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany, census, which shows their home as Walkendorf, Ritteramt Gnoien (the district office), Mecklenburg, which is about 20 km southeast of Rostock. The census shows the household of Heinrich Kracht (28), wife Sophia (26), son Fritz (2), as well as Friedericke Schröder (born 1835 [32]), her son Johann (1856 [11]), daughter Sophia (1862 [5]), and Helmuth Gade (1778 [89]). It could be that Friedericke is the widowed sister-in-law of Sophia (with her children), but Helmuth is a complete mystery. He does, however, show up in the 1819 census as well, being born in Castroff, living in Walkendorf. Below him is a Sophie Gaede, born 1783. Sophia M. Schröder
 
861 The widow Sophia left Hamburg, Germany and arrived in New York on 24 Mar 1882. She brought along her six children; the Castle Garden documents list Sophia (age 39), Fritz (17), Mina (14), Sophie (8.5), Hermann (7), Johann (5), Heinrich (3) and Mecklenburg as their point of departure.

They sailed on the SS India. She was a 1,551 gross ton ship, 261 feet long x 34 feet wide, one funnel, two masts, iron construction, with a single screw and a speed of 10 knots. Built by C. Mitchell & Co, Walker-on-Tyne (engines by Blair & Co, Stockton), she was launched for the Carr Line on 12 Oct 1881. Established in Hamburg in 1879-1880 as a tramp ship company, they expanded into the emigrant business in 1881 with a fleet of cargo liners. By offering cheaper fares, Carr Line entered into cut-throat competition with other Atlantic passenger companies. The India packed 500 third-class passengers. Speed was not a consideration and most westbound passages to New York took 17-19 days. Given this duration of time, it is quite likely that the Krachts were on the maiden voyage of the India with Captain Haberland, which started 5 March 1882 in Hamburg, through Plymouth, England, and on to New York.

862 The 11 Sep 1918 record shows that Alfred Henry Schwarze was born on 31 Oct 1880. He was living with his wife at 105 North Winnebago Street, Rockford, Winnebago County, Illinois. Alfred was a pharmacist at L.W. Donalsson's on 529 West State Street in Rockford. He had medium height and build (162 pounds), blue eyes, and dark hair. Alfred Henry Schwarze
 
863 The record shows Archie lived at 45 Hardin Street, was born 22 Aug 1900, was currently a high school student, and had a medium build, height, brown eyes, and a full head of black hair. He listed his father Edward, same address, as his closest relative. Archie August Schwarze
 
864 Although his Illinois death certificate indicates he was born in 1850, his headstone shows 1851. August C. Schwarze
 
865 I'm not sure where this is...Koldorf, Lippedold, Germany... but I can find Holdorf, Germany and Lippe-Detmold, Germany, but not a combination of the two... I could find a Kalldorf, Lippe-Detmold. The Principality of Lippe is a historical German State located between the Weser river and the southeast part of the Teutoburger Wald (Teutoburgforest).  The capital of Lippe was the town of Detmold.

866 On 12 Sep 1918, Edward Lewis Schwarze registered for World War I. Born on 15 Jan 1874, he was living at 45 Hardin in Freeport, Stephenson County, Illinois,and working as a rural mail carrier. Edward had a medium build, was of medium height, and had brown eyes and dark hair. He listed his wife, Emma Cordelia, as his closest relative. Edward Lewis Schwarze

869 This record is hard to read, but it appears Oscar Schwarze was born on 3 June 1883 and was living on Rural Route 3 in Freeport, Stephenson County, Illinois. He had a medium build, gray eyes, dark hair, and worked for the I.C.R.R. Co. (most likely Illinois Central Railroad) as a "tool ironman". He was already married to Anna, who he listed as his closest relative. Oscar August Schwarze

875 AT RIPE OLD AGE - Christof Schwego Died at the Home of His Daughter Last Evening Christ. Schwego lived beyond the ripe old age of 90 years, enjoying the loving care of his devoted children, and last evening bade them farewell in this world and passed into the realms of another and happier one. His death occurred at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Joseph Hill, and was quiet and.... Christoph Jochim Schwieger
 
876 Also listed with the family is Marie Harms, born 1849. Her relationship is unknown. Christoph Jochim Schwieger
 
877 The census shows him as "Christoff Sweiger." Christoph Jochim Schwieger
 
878 This person was known by a variety of names. Christoph Schwego in his newspaper obituary; what looks like Christopher Schweiger on his death certificate but what is officially recorded as Christopher Schmeizer; as Schweigert in his son-in-law's obituary; and Christ Schweger in the 1894-1895 city directory.

I believe he immigrated to the US as a widower. The death certificates for his daughters Caroline and Sophia indicate they immigrated about 1873; I suspect he immigrated at the same time.

889 The age of Lewis is difficult to determine. In the 1860, 1870, and 1880 US Census records he was born in 1808, 1826, and 1832. I assumed that the 1808 date was simply incorrect. Lewis Smith
 
890 This is curious and needs to be confirmed. It looks as if Lewis and perhaps his brother Martin were perhaps living with their older brother, Jacob Smith, and his family. Why do I think this? Well, Lewis and Martin were 22 and 23 years old, both were born in Germany, and both are listed as coopers. Jacob and his wife were also born in Germany, and Jacob is listed as a cooper, too. All of Jacob's children were born in Canada; in the 1870 US Census, a couple of Canadian's, one of which was a cooper, are living with Lewis and his family. Another curious thing is that the census was enumerated on Saturday, 10 August and Lewis was married the next day, Sunday, 11 August. Lewis Smith

898 Clarence Harold Smitter – World War II Submariner

15 June 2011

The first record I can find for Clarence is his US Navy muster record dated 7 August 1942. It shows his service number is 3120555, that he is a quartermaster 3c, and is aboard the USS R-14. This ship was a 569-ton R-1 class submarine launched at the Bethlehem Shipbuilding Corporation's Fore River Plant in Quincy, Massachusetts on 10 October 1919 and commissioned for service on Christmas Eve 1919. In 1941 the R-14 was moved to Key West, Florida, and spent nearly all of World War II on training and patrol service in the Gulf of Mexico area. Clarence was aboard this sub through 30 January 1943.

Muster records for 31 August 1943 show Clarence joining the 60-man crew of the Redfin, SS-272. The Redfin was a Gato class submarine laid down 3 September 1942 by Manitowoc Shipbuilding Company in Manitowoc, Wisconsin, launched on 4 April 1943, and commissioned for service on 31 August 1943, Lt. Comdr. R.D. King in command. The Manitowoc Shipbuilding Company built 28 submarines; all of them sailed down Lake Michigan, the Illinois River, and the Mississippi River to New Orleans. The Redfin had a displacement of 1,526 tons, was 312 feet long, and had a surface speed of 20 knots and a submerged speed of 8.7 knots. She was armed with a single 3-inch torpedo tube and ten 21-inch tubes.

The Redfin departed New Orleans on 15 October 1943 and proceeded to Fremantle, Australia. She began her first war patrol on 4 January 1944 and encountered an enemy convoy of four ships in the South China Sea on 16 January. Before the Redfin could attack, however, the Japanese destroyer Amatsukaze spotted her in the afternoon haze and began a surface chase. After the Japanese warship began firing at Redfin from about 5,000 yards, the submarine carefully fired four torpedoes at the fast closing destroyer, scoring at least one hit that damaged Amatsukaze and allowed Redfin to escape. The submarine then returned to Fremantle to refit, a period broken by an emergency patrol off western Australia in mid-March to defend against a possible Japanese strike.

Her second war patrol was from 19 March to 1 May. On 11 April and while submerged, Redfin fired four torpedoes at the 1,900-ton Japanese destroyer Akigumo off Zamboanga, Mindanao, in the Philippines, and scored three hits. The destroyer's magazine exploded and she sank by the stern in a mass of flames. During the night of 15-16 April, she sank two Japanese passenger-cargo ships, Shinyu Maru, 4,621 tons, and Yamagata Maru, 3,807 tons. On the night of 22-23 April, she landed four of her crew near Dent Haven, Borneo (Malaysia), to evacuate a British reconnaissance party. Attacked by the Japanese, the landing party returned to Redfin without their charges, but the British agents were later evacuated by Australian forces.

On her third war patrol, 26 May to 1 July, she landed six Philippine guerrillas on a small island near Balabac Strait on 8 June. Proceeding to scout the enemy naval base at Tawi Tawi (Philippines), she sank the 5,142-ton Japanese tanker Asanagi Maru on the 11th. She also warned American forces in the Marianas of the departure from Tawi Tawi of the Japanese task force that was later defeated in the Battle of the Philippine Sea on the 19th and the 20th. Operating off Leyte (Philippines) on the 24th, she sank the 3,028-ton Japanese passenger-cargo ship Aso Maru, before returning to Fremantle. The muster records show that Clarence was promoted to quartermaster 2c at the end of this patrol.

A muster record shows that Clarence was aboard the Redfin on 31 July 1944, and this is the last record I can find until he appears on the 17 August 1945 muster record for the Mero, SS-378. If Clarence was still aboard the Redfin, they departed Fremantle on 6 August and laid a minefield off the west coast of Borneo on the 19th before rescuing eight survivors of Flier (SS-250) at Palawan Island on the 30th. After lifeguard duty for airstrikes against Balikpapan, Borneo, she departed Fremantle 26 October and sank the 15,226-ton Japanese tanker No.2 Nichinan Maru west of the Philippines on 8 November. Completing her fourth war patrol 7 January 1945, the Redfin proceeded to Mare Island Naval Shipyard, San Francisco, where she received special mine detection gear.Underway from Pearl Harbor 30 May to 10 July she made mine surveys off Honshu and Hokkaido, Japan.

Clarence appears on the 17 August 1945 muster roll for the Mero (it’s not clear yet how he got from Pearl Harbor on 10 July (if he was still aboard the Redfin) to Wisconsin). The Mero was the last submarine built at Manitowoc; she was laid down on 22 July 1944, launched on 17 January 1945, and commissioned on 17 August 1945. She displaced 1,526tons on the surface and 2,424 tons submerged, was 312 feet long, had a top speed of 20 knots on the surface and 9 knots submerged, carried 66 crew, and was armed with a single 5-inch torpedo tube and ten 21-inch tubes. Mero got underway for shakedown in Lake Michigan on 25 August, and between 6 September and 17 November she cruised the Great Lakes and visited Detroit, Cleveland, and Chicago. She reached New Orleans via the Mississippi River on the 29th, and sailed for the Panama Canal on 6 December. After training one month in the Canal Zone, the Mero sailed for Pearl Harbor 19 January 1946, reaching it on 5 February. After a short operation, the Mero departed 22 February for the West Coast, arriving in the San Francisco Bay on 1 March. Two weeks later she steamed to Mare Island Naval Shipyard at Vallejo ,joined the 19th Fleet, and was decommissioned at Mare Island on 15 June 1946.During this tour Clarence was promoted to quartermaster 1c.

The 14 June 1946 muster rolls show Clarence joining the crew of the Boarfish, SS-327. The Boarfish was laid down on 12 August 1943 at Groton, Connecticut, by the Electric Boat Company, launched on 21 May 1944, and commissioned on 23 September 1944 with Comdr. Royce L. Gross in command. The Boarfish was 312 feet long, displaced 1,525 tons when surfaced,2,415 tons submerged, and had a top surface speed of 20 knots and almost 9 knots submerged. Clarence would have been one of the 81 crew members. The submarine had a single 5-inch torpedo tube and ten 21-inch tubes. The Boarfish had already seen plenty of action in the western Pacific before Clarence joined the crew. The Boarfish conducted training exercises out of San Diego until 9 September, and then departed for a tour in the western Pacific. After a brief stopover in Pearl Harbor, the submarine got underway on 1 October for a tour that included visits to Midway; Marcus Island; Okinawa; Tsingtao, China; and Guam. She began her return cruise to San Diego on 11 November and, upon her arrival, resumed local operations. Boarfish remained in the San Diego area until 15 November 1947 except for one cruise to Pearl Harbor in February 1947 and another to Alaska and Canada between July and November. During this time, his wife Grace Marie, was living at 910 South 24th in Manitowoc. On 15 November, the submarine entered the Mare Island Naval Shipyard for overhaul before being transfer to the Turkish Navy. She left Mare Island on 21 February 1948 and steamed via San Diego and Panama to New London, Connecticut,where the muster roll for 23 May 1948 shows Clarence disembarking at the New London submarine base.
