Descendants of Michael Fruth

 

Generation No. 1

 

Michael Fruth was born in Kemnatheröd, Bavaria, Germany. He married Margaret Kuhn.

Notes for Michael Fruth:
Father Alban Fruth, OSB, wrote a 1954 genealogy of the Fruth family. In it he says:
   "The Fruth family came from the region of Amberg, Bavaria about 100 years ago to escape the wars and social unrest of Europe. They saw in the U.S.A. an opportunity to enjoy personal and religious freedom.  Qualities they had in common were: uprightness of character, respect for the rights of others, sense of duty, and firm adherence to the age-old Catholic religion. Today the family numbers 671 known members in this country and Germany. In the family are 2 Priests, 1 Brother, and 16 Sisters called by God to dedicate their lives to His service and that of the neighbor."

This current genealogy (as of 2008) lists 1,118 known Fruth family-members, with the known increase being predominantly within the USA.

Village location:
   Although Father Fruth listed the village name as Kemnathöd, the correct spelling appears to be Kemnatheröd. Reference books indicate that the "Weiler" (small hamlet) called Kemnatheröd, Bavaria, Germany is about 1 mile south of the "Dorf" (village) called Hohenkemnath, and both are about 5 miles southwest of Amberg, Germany. Thus Kemnatheröd is in southeastern Germany about 35 miles east of Nürmberg, 30 miles north-northwest of Regensburg and about 45 miles from the Czech Republic border. Tiny Kemnatheröd currently has but 5 houses and 17 residents. The population of the larger Hohenkemnath was 188 in 1912 and is currently 287. The local Catholic church, Mariä Himelfahrt (Assumption of the Virgin Mary), is in Hohenkemnath. Hohenkemnath is governmentally part of town Ursensollen in the Kreis (county) of Amberg-Sulzbach in the Regierungsbezirk (administrative district) of Oberpfalz in the Land (state) of Bavaria in Germany.

Obituary (from Der Nordstern?):
   Collegeville. -- Letzte Woche Dienstag ist nach langem und schwerem Leiden, das durch Magenkrebs verursacht wurde, Frau Johanna Fruth im hause ihres Sohnes Michael Fruth, bei dem sie ein angenehmes Unterkommen hatte, bestens auf den schweren Gang in die Ewigkeit vorbereitet, im Alter von 69 Jahren aus dem Leben geschieden. Die Verstorebene wurde in Deutsch-Polen geboren, von wo sie im Alter von 28 Jahren nach Amerika kam. Ein Jahr später verheirathete sie sich mit Georg Fruth und hatte alle die Jahre ihre Heimath hier. Ihr Gatte ging ihr vor sechs Jahren in die Ewigkeit voran. Sie war wie ihren Kindern eine stets fürsorgliche Mutter, so ihrer kath. Kirche eine treue Anhängerin. Jeden Tag sah man sie in der Kirche sich dem Tische des Herrn nähern, und von diesem löblichen Gebrauche ließ sie sich durch kein Unwetter abhalten. Sechs Kinder betrauern den Tod der guten Mutter. Es sind dies: die ehrw. Benediktinerschwestern Karmel von Bismark, N.D., und Genovefa von Perham, Mich. Fruth von hier, Alois von Luxemburg und die Frauen Nik. Zwilling und Math. Pflüger von hier. Am Freitagmorgen fand nach einem in der Pfarrkirche gehaltenen Seelenamte im Beisein des Frauenvereins, dessen langjähriges, ehrenwertes Mitglied sie gewesen, und unter sonst großer Teilnahme die Beerdigung statt. Möge die Dahingeschiedene ruhen in Frieden! Die hinterbliebenen Kindern nehmen diese Gelegenheit wahr, allen, die ihnen während der langen Leidenszeit der guten Mutter behilflich waren und ihr Worte des Trostes spendeten, so wie allen, die der Verstorbenen das letzte Ehrengeleite gaben und ihrer Seelenruhe im andächtigen Gebete gedachten, ihren wohlgemeinten Dank zu erstatten.

Translation:
   Collegeville. -- Last week Tuesday, after long and heavy suffering that was caused by stomach cancer, Mrs. Johanna Fruth, in the house of her son Michael Fruth, with whom she had a comfortable accommodation, prepared in the best way for the difficult passage into the eternity, is separated at the age of 69 years out of the life. The deceased in German-Poland was born, from where she came at the age of 28 years to America. One year later she married herself with George Fruth and had all the years her home here. Her husband preceded her for six years into the eternity. She was, as for her children an always considerate mother, so her Catholic Church a faithful follower. Each day one saw her in the church to the Table of the Lord approaching, and of this laudable use she let herself be held off by no thunderstorm. Six children mourned the death of the good mother. These are: the honorable Benedictine Sisters Carmel from Bismark, N.D., and Genevieve from Perham, Michael Fruth from here, Alois from Luxemburg, and Mrs. Nikolaus Zwilling and Mrs. Mathias Pflüger from here. On Friday morning occurred, after a Requiem mass held in the parish church in the presence of the Women's Society, whose long-time honorable member she was, and under otherwise large participation, the funeral. May the deceased rest in peace! The surviving children take this opportunity all, to you which were helpful to them during the long suffering time of the good mother and gave her words of comfort, all that gave the last honor escort to the deceased, and gave her soul peace in devotional prayers and thought, their well-intentioned thanks.

Notes for John Wertin:
Edited from Mitchell's 1915 History of Stearns County:
   Mr. (John) Wertin was born at Lubach, Austria, April 12, 1860. He emigrated to this country in 1874, coming to Richmond, where he found employment on a farm. In 1877 he was engaged with Maurin Bros. at Cold Spring. In 1880 he went to St. Joe, where he remained until coming to Albany in 1885. In 1885 Jos. Kraker sold (his store in Albany, MN) to Peter Kraker and John Wertin, school companion(s). When the two young men bought the business the stock was about $4,700. As the country developed and the settlers learned of the hidden wealth of the surrounding country, the business expanded with bounds and strides. An elevator was erected and the buying of grain as well as wood proved quite profitable. In 1911 the partnership was dissolved, Mr. Kraker keeping the general store and grain business and Mr. Wertin taking the hardware and furniture business, the stock of which was valued at about $10,000. Both Peter Kraker and John Wertin are interested in two banks, the Albany State bank and the Bynum State bank at Bynum, Montana. Beside this, John Wertin has several tracts of land in Marshall and Stearns counties.

Message From: George J. Plautz Jr.
   I am researching the Wertin and Vertin surnames from Slovenia (formerly Austria). Most if not all WERTINs in the U.S. are descended from families which lived in Doblice. I noticed Mat Kraker is from Jernejava in Crnomelj Parish; this is in the same parish my Wertin's are from. I am not sure that both Krakar and Wertin were born in Lubach which is I believe Laibach, today's Ljubljana, the capitol of Slovenia. I know that people gave the name that people knew of rather than the exact name of the village, and that most people did not remember exactly when they were born.

He is a genial man, pleasant to meet, and popular with his neighbors and friends. Especially is he well informed on the events of the early days, and his stories of those far distant times are most interesting. He has served on the town board of supervisors. The family are members of the Catholic Church.
   Christian Speiser married Mary Fruth, daughter of M. and Mary (Shean) Fruth. They have had ten children: Frank (deceased); John and Joseph at home; Rose, wife of Martin Iten, of St. Cloud, and the mother of two children; Anna, of Breckenridge, Minn.; Elizabeth and Ida, teachers; Martin, Peter and Secunda, at home.

Notes for George Fruth:
From Terry Fruth (Feb 2005): Our family went to Brainerd in the late 19th Century---probably to get cheap land. The George Fruth farm was in St. Mathias Twp. outside of Brainerd. When my grandfather George died in l951, his oldest son, Joe, took over the farm and the rest of the siblings went into other occupations. After the War, my father, Frank, started the Fruth Beverage Company, a wholsale beer distributorship, which is now run by our oldest brother Gary. My mother, Ethel, was one of six Darling kids who grew up dirt poor during the depression in Barrows, outside of Brainerd. Those Darling children scattered to the winds. Only my mother stayed--she is well and living in a senior's residence in Brainerd. My father died in l985.

Obituary: MAY THE ANGELS LEAD HER INTO PARADISE
   Sister Berchmans (Elizabeth) Zwilling, 91, died peacefully at St. Scholastica Convent at 6:20 a.m. on Thursday, August 17, 1995. Sister was born in Morris, MN, on January 7, 1904, the fourth child of Nick and Clara (Fruth) Zwilling. The family moved to Collegeville where Sister attended the district school. Her decision at age 18 to enter St. Benedict's Convent was the result of contrasting the wealth of liturgical prayer that she observed at St. John's Abbey with the scarcity of such prayer in rural parishes. Sister attended St. Benedict's Academy, entered the novitiate in 1925, and professed vows on July 11, 1929. Sister Marie, her younger sister, professed vows the same day.
   Sister Berchmans regarded her life as one of exceptional receiving that enabled wholehearted giving. From the novitiate she was assigned to Wadena where she spent 17 happy years teaching fifth and sixth grades and directed altar boys. During summers she attended the College of St. Benedict and teacher's colleges in Moorhead and St. Cloud. In 1943 she returned to St. Benedict's to attend college and assist the director of postulants. On receiving the B.A. degree in English in 1944, she was delighted to enroll in the first graduate school of theology for women, St. Mary's, Notre Dame. She received her Ph.D. degree in theology in 1946. Then for six years she faced the challenge of teaching religion to release time classes from Tech H.S., St. Cloud, and Cathedral H.S. religion classes for seven years. At Cathedral Convent she served as Superior. Then, from 1959 to 1993, with the exception of a year at St. Augustine's, St. Cloud, Sister Berchmans lived at St. Benedict's. She taught theology at the College of St. Benedict and at St Cloud Hospital School of Nursing. Participating in a five-year program of summer sessions at Loyola U. on theology increased her eagerness to teach Christianity as a unified whole. Sister Berchmans also helped to train lay religion teachers in parishes and taught courses at St. John's Seminary. In retirement she assisted with convent administration and served as a tour guide.
   Sister is survived by her Benedictine community; two brothers, Celestine, Waite Park; and Joseph, Avon; four sisters, Margaret Hoeschen, Watkins; Sister Marie; O.S.B., St. Joseph; Theresa Lambert, Edina; and Helen Middendorf, Freeport. Three brothers and one sister preceded her in death.
   Both Sister Berchmans' life and her teachings were grounded in her openness to the presence of Christ in herself, in others and everywhere. We rejoice that she has been received into the fullness of Christ's presence.

Notes for Matthias Pflueger:
-- From: Die Amerika-Auswanderung aus dem Landkreise Daun, Mergen, entry 829
         (The America emigration from the county Daun, Mergen)
   Mathias Pflueger, born July 18, 1876 petitioned for a release from citizenship. Here is a report of the District Magistrate, dated 24 July, 1893: "In the matter of the petition of Mathias Pflueger of Wallenborn for the granting of a release certificate, I would point out that his half-brother, Mathias Zwilling, who was given a free pass by Pflueger, was convicted of desertion by a court-martial on March 1, 1893. Likewise, another half-brother, Nicholaus Zwilling, who was conscripted last fall by the Infantry, has deserted. Therefore it is to be suspected that Mathias Pflueger wishes the release solely to dodge his Military Service obligations."
   The government of the Trier Administrative District has imparted the following communication to Johann Pflueger in Wallenborn: "Your alleged minor son Mathias Pflueger, who was born on July 18, 1876, and has therefore already reached his 17th year, can thus be issued a release from Prussian citizenship only if he furnishes a certificate from the Military Recruiting Commission to the effect that he is not seeking the release solely to evade service in either the standing Army or in the fleet. Since the Commission has refused to issue such a certificate, therefore I am not in a position to make out the release papers."
   So, has the petitioner emigrated illegally?

From the passenger record for Math Pflueger in the online Ellis Island records: He arrived in New York City on the SS Westernland on August 15, 1893 from Antwerp, listed as steerage passenger 527. The info in the record is: Pfluger, Math., M, 17y, occupation servant, born Germany, destination Minneapolis, cabin D for'd lower, 1 bag

Notes for Alban Bernard (Rev. Fr. OSB) Fruth:
Obituary from St. John's Abbey
Father Alban Bernard Fruth, OSB, 1913 - 1996
   Coming from a family of eight brothers and four sisters and with one Benedictine uncle (Father Bonaventure Hansen) and five Benedictine aunts, Bernard Fruth had an early inkling of what life might be like in a large monastic community. The sixth child of Aloys and Anna (Hansen) Fruth, he grew up on a 240-acre farm near the small town of Luxemburg, Minnesota, not far from St. John's Abbey. In his novitiate autobiography entitled "The Journey to the Monastery" he wrote, "Life at home was characterized chiefly by frugality and simplicity. We were all great lovers of music. Very often music afforded the only source of amusement."
   Desiring to become a priest, young Bernard was given a full scholarship to attend St. John's Preparatory School in 1927. In his senior year of high school he won first prize in the Chesterson Club oratory contest and second place in the annual elocution contest, feats that his confreres will surely find amazing. He continued his college education at St. John's University and entered the abbey's novitiate in 1933, receiving the name of Alban. Mixing his subsequent study of theology with that of architecture - an area that would serve him well during his missionary years - he was ordained to the priesthood in 1940.
   During the next twelve years, Father Alban did pastoral and missionary work in the Bahamas where confreres had been laboring since 1891. There he served as associate pastor and pastor of several churches in Nassau, as chaplain of a leper colony and several hospitals, and as the director of the Bahamas Catholic Band and the Boy Scouts Drum and Bugle corps. He also designed and helped build several churches, rectories and schools at various parishes in Nassau and on the Family Islands of Grand Bahamas, Bimini and Andros. At the suggestion of his abbot, he took flying lessons with the hope of offering sea-plane travel between the islands. Although this plan did not materialize at the time, Father Alban did use his experience as a pilot to reconnoiter New Providence Island and recover the stolen car of a confrere.
   Upon his return to the States in 1952, Father Alban began a series of pastoral assignments to Minnesota parishes in Ogema, Red Lake, Nebish, St. Joseph, Mahnomen, Bejou, Island Lake, White Earth, St. Martin, Cloquet, Sawyer and Brookson plus a short term at St. Benedict's Church in the Bronx. He again planned and helped build several churches. For the centenary of the founding of the mission for Native Americans at Red Lake in 1958 he wrote a 125-page history of that settlement.
   Father Alban's pastoral work was characterized by his firmness in matters of doctrine and practice. He once stated, "I don't want people to come to church because they like the priest but because they want to thank God and do what's right. We have all eternity in front of us. There is still lots of room in heaven for creative things, for joy."
   In his autobiography Father Alban admitted, "I felt best when I had just a trifle more work to do than that which I was conveniently able to do." He put that principle into practice by building a small portable organ as well as a full-sized electronic organ that took him three hours a day for three weeks to wire the circuitry. He also built an eight-inch telescope to study the stars in the clear, quiet skies of his lonely missions in northern Minnesota. He was an avid reader in nine languages.
   Retiring to the abbey in 1991, Father Alban continued his policy of "a trifle more work." No sooner had he settled into his monastery room than he began to offer barbering service to his confreres. The more heads he trimmed the better he got. Despite - or maybe because of - the dry monotone of his voice, he volunteered for evening table reading. Several times a week he would pack up his portable organ and go off to visit area retirement centers where he entertained the elderly residents with a repertoire he had composed himself.
   The closing line of Father Alban's autobiography reads, "May the future be prolific of 'good days' so that all will be in readiness when the night comes." The evening of that night came several months ago when he was diagnosed as having inoperable cancer of the liver. In his customary calm and unruffled manner he awaited the night of his death that marks the advent of a newer, brighter day that will know no night. Like the good tree that is known by its good fruit, Father Alban can now keep busy learning the new hymns and canticles of the heavenly choirs in praise and thanksgiving of the God of life eternal.
   Born: 28 March 1913; Professed: 11 July 1934; Ordained: 9 June 1940; Died: 15 March 1996.
   We commend our brother Alban to your prayers.

More About Anne Gaydos Kunkel:
  
The St. Cloud Photo News (morning edition) of December 7, 1964 did a story about Anna. Originally from New York City, Anna's mother died and her father remarried. His new wife did not want any girls. Anna was sent to the New York Foundling Home. Her sister was older and was sent out to work and had quit school while in 5th grade. When Anna was 5 years old, between 300 and 400 "orphan" children were put on a train to find new homes. Some children were as young as two months old. Each had a little bag with a tin cup, plate, fork and spoon. The train traveled into Canada and then into Minnesota. The train stopped at larger cities and people would come and pick out children to adopt. The Kunkel family had only one daughter and chose to adopt Anna. When they adopted Anna, the family spoke only German and Anna spoke only English. The family welcomed Anna with a new doll. They had quite a time of it. When she was 26 years old, Anna found her natural sister. The story in the St. Cloud Photo News resulted from a reunion of the train children that was held in St. Cloud.
   As many as 35,000 children were placed in new homes via the "Orphan Trains". The trains were the idea of Methodist Minister Charles Loring Brace, founder of the Children's Aide Society of New York. Some children found themselves riding the train more than once. Janet Liebl wrote a book entitled "Ties That Bind, the Orphan Train Story in Minnesota".

Anna's birth parents were Andrew and Mary (Handera) Gaydos.

Notes for Donald John Pflueger:
Perseverance Pays Off, by Sheila Rausch, OSB
    Why would a talented man with a good job take a substantial paycut to go and work for the nuns, and stay for 30 years? It wasn't out of love for "the cloth" but Don Pflueger now thinks it was a good choice: "Thirty years is a long time, but it went by quickly."
    Don had worked in building construction in this area for 10 years. The pay was good for 1971 ($7.55 per hour), but there were no benefits. Actually, he admits, he had been laid off and was looking around the Saint Ben's campus when a sister referred him to Jim Stagner, who said, "Yes, we need a painter."
Although the pay was much lower, "They told me of the benefits, including college tuition. But we were just married and had no kids, so that went in one ear and out the other. For a while I thought about going back to construction." But now he's glad he stayed. Don could not foresee that he and his wife Rose Ann would have three daughters (Laura, Jennifer, and Joyce), all of whom would graduate from the College of Saint Benedict. Obviously the tuition remission paid off. Other benefits included health care and vacations.
    Don also stuck it out because of the good working conditions. "It's fun to work here. There's lots of variety, and I like the people I work with -- both the men and the sisters." Although he was hired to do painting, varnishing and staining, and really enjoys that, he's done lots of other maintenance, from changing light bulbs to digging graves, which is now done the easy way -- with a back hoe. Was it hard to work for women? No, says Don, all the sister supervisors (plant and grounds managers) were "nice to work with and good to me."
    Don is a Stearns County native and has lived here all his life. Home is a small hobby farm about six and one-half miles north of St. Joseph. Retirement should come in about two and one-half years or so. After that he would like to do volunteer work. One experience he would like to repeat is travel. In March of 2001 he and Rose Ann took a Caribbean cruise, best described as "fun."
    The kindness and prayers the sisters have given on many occasions are greatly appreciated, as well as the "treats" for some of the work that he has done for individual sisters. Although his mind "went blank" when he was asked to recall particularly funny or embarrassing events, one at least surprised him. While painting some chairs for the college, using oil paint which "drips a lot," he put a canvas under the chairs to catch the drips and protect the platform. Seeing the multicolored canvas that resulted, Albert Schindler thought it was "a pretty nice painting." Very likely the artistic Albert saw the resemblance to the work of Jackson Pollock. He framed the painting and it hung in the paint shop for 28 years. When it was brought out for demonstration at the awards ceremony this past winter, when Don received his 30-year award, all he could say was "Oh, my gosh!" His surprise removed any brilliant or inspiring thoughts he might have uttered for posterity.

William "Bill" H. Mohs, Luxemburg , June 15, 2003
   Funeral services will be 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, June 19, 2003 at St. Wendelin's Catholic Church, Luxemburg, MN for William H. Mohs, 68, who died Sunday evening at his home. The Rev. Leon Slominski will officiate. Interment will be at St. Wendelin's Parish Cemetery, Luxemburg.

   William was born to Alois and Genevieve (Fruth) Mohs on October 28, 1934 in Luxemburg, MN. He married Phyllis Lehnen on April 29, 1954. They lived in Luxemburg all their married life.

He was a member of St. Wendelin's Parish all his life. He was also a member of St. Wendelin's Men's Society, Catholic Aid Society and Moose Lodge #1400.
   William was a music lover, and he especially enjoyed old time and country western music. He liked to visit the casinos and try his luck. He enjoyed the outdoors, deer hunting, fishing and snowmobiling. Bill also enjoyed playing the cordavox, cards and dancing. He enjoyed playing the accordion for family and friends and tried to pass his dancing talent on to his grandchildren. He would have loved to bestow his passion of carpentry on his family, but because of their lack of carpentry skills, he stated, "it's plain to see that if you were working for me, I'd have to let you go!"

Notes for Patricia Therese Mengelkoch:
Pat writes via e-mail (9 Mar 2001):
   In about 1992 I got interested in the family genealogy because one of my adopted mother's uncles had the same birth date as one of my grandchildren. I worked on her family tree about a year and then thought why spend all this time and money on this tree when I could put the effort on finding my birth family. So after some searching I found Fr. Fruth's publishings listed in the Lib. of Congress listing (can you believe that! I didn't believe they listed things like that). So with that knowledge I asked my best friend, Jan Brixius, who I had worked with for 20 years, if her husband, who worked for the State of Minnesota as a librarian, knew where I could find a copy of that pamphlet, never believing that there was a copy around after 40 years that I could read. Rod, her husband, said sure we have one on the bookshelf at home. It turned out that Rod's g-g-father, Peter Maus, had come to America in the 1840's and had worked here until he had enough money to send for the rest of his family, which included his mother, one brother, and three sisters, of which one was Catherine Maus, who married Hubert Hansen, who's daughter by the name of Anna Catherine Hansen married Alois Fruth. I was able to find the Fruth family one month before Helen died [she died 25 Feb 1994], but I did not contact them until a few months later. Although my oldest daughter Charlamaine & I did attend Helen's funeral, I did not talk to any of the relatives at that time. I made contact with Martin Fruth, Helen's oldest brother, by having one of the Maus relatives talk to him. He called me up and asked if his sister, Emma, & her husband, Doc, could meet me. After that I met all the relatives at an 80th birthday party that was held for one of the other brothers. Several of the brothers had told me that they knew that Helen had a child but they never knew if she had a boy or girl. I guess that they didn't talk about stuff in those days. My biological father died in 1971. He and Helen never got married but stayed in touch with each other. Emma gave me a picture of him. So to make a long story short, I was adopted at six weeks of age by Joseph Mengelkoch and Margaret McGrath Mengelkoch. So that is the reason my name was Mengelkoch. Strange world isn't it. Bye for now, Pat
