Marriage: Rose Streletzky and Joseph Christoph Weber

Tracking down the siblings of my great-grandfather, John Joseph Strelesky, has been challenging.  Fortunately, there aren’t too many people with this last name, so when I find it, I can usually determine pretty quickly whether or not they are related.

One night I was using FamilySearch.org and found the marriage certificate of Rose Streletzky and Joseph Weber.  Rose was Jack’s older sister.  She married Joseph Christoph Weber on September 22, 1893, in Chicago, Illinois.

From the documents that I’ve seen, her last name is consistently spelled Streletzky.  The rest of her family uses Strelesky as the spelling.

Rose and Joseph had nine children; I know the names of eight: Frank, Marian, Lenora, Josephine, Joseph Jr, Amiel, Amelia, and John Henry.  An unidentified boy died before 1900.

Streletzkys from Dubuque, Iowa

I’ve been researching my grandmother Eunice Strelesky ancestors and I’ve come across a family with the last name of Streletzky living in Dubuque, Iowa.  While my grandmother wasn’t born in Dubuque, she grew up there.  Since Strelesky is not a common name, I’ve wondered if there could be a connection between the families.  I believe if the families are related, the lineage connection would probably be between Frank Strelesky, my grandmother’s grandfather, and John Streletzky (married to Margaretha Giesler/Margaret Geisen).  I think it’s highly possible that they were brothers, but as of now, I have not been able to find a record that links that families.

Check out my Streletzky research.
