The Observer, Richland Center, Thursday, April 22, 1880

RICHLAND COUNTY CORRESPONDENCE

William Abbey, Sylvester Blake, Marty. Brenaman and Mr. Crouch, minister, have each located a "claim" in Norton county, Kan. Mr. Crouch is preaching on that circuit, and will not return to Wisconsin this year as he anticipated. Mr. Blake has rented his place for the year and will return home first week in May. The above claims are quarter sections and are first-class land.

Living with him is his wife, Eliza Bacitag (age 40) born in Prussia to Prussian-born parents, who is Keeping House. Also living there is his unmarried son, Gusstaff Bacitag (age 16) born in Prussia to Prussian-born parents.

Living with him is his wife, Mary J. Crouse (age 20) born in Canada to Canadian and English-born parents, who is Keeping House. Leigh Larson note: Mary J. (Abbey) Krause, and his sister, William S.

Also living there is his son, August Butzke (age 4) born in Wisconsin to Prussian-born parents. Leigh Larson note: Please bear in mind that the census was not necessarily a one-on-one interview. Anyone could have provided this information. As we review the census some 133 years later, we must also recognize that there was a language barrier that existed. I don’t believe that either Martin or Louisa spoke English. Obviously, the birth dates of Martin and “Eliza” were broad approximations, although the birthdate for “Gustaff” is the birth year for Gustav Frederich "Gust" Krause. The census enumerator grouped his last name with Martin and Eliza. Maybe “Eliza” was a nickname, or just an incorrect census entry, or a neighbor who provided it?

The 1885 Kansas State Census taken on March 1, 1885, shows A. F. Krouse (age 29) born in Germany and having moved from Wisconsin is a married Farmer living in Aldine Twp., Norton Co., KS.
