Contributed by Darlene Poppe



Albert Poppe's Family: Clara Mae (Poppe) and Karl Frederick Rahn, Lenor Margeret Rahn, Clayton Lavern Rahn, Wanda Beryl Rahn, Etta Belle (Poppe) and Hartwell Milton Jorstad, Mae Belle Jorstad, Vernon Jorstad, Milsom Myra Jorstad, Mae Belle Jorstad, Vernon Jorstad, Gerald Garlen Jorstad, Florence Edith (Poppe) Neitzel, Delbert William Neitzel, James Emery Neitzel, Geraldine Ruth Neitzel, James Emery Neitzel, Geraldine Ruth Neitzel, Ruth Luella Poppe, Gertrude Lillian Poppe, and June Juanita Poppe.


Our Family's "Poppe Book" says Albert Poppe was a Democrat and a Lutheran.  His children all attended the "Poppe School" which he helped build.

This is what the book says about his death; Albert died on Monday the 29th of August, 1932 in Greenwood Township, Taylor County, at the age of 29 years, 8 months and 16 days old.  Roy, his son, became worried when his father hadn't returned from hunting and it was getting late in the day.  It is believed that Albert, while hunting in the woods, tripped over a wire fence and his gun went off killing him.  He was buried the 1st of Sept., 1932 in Riverside Cemetery, Withee, Wisconsin.

Now, something interesting but may not be fact; hand written in the book by a cousin of mine it says " Also evidence of suicide. Carried a gun to many years to have an accident like that.  Also gave brother Charlie important papers several days before is death".

Albert married Edna Belle Timblin the 26th of Dec., 1902 in Butler Township, Clark County, Wisconsin  Edna was the daughter of William and Mary Jane (Smith) Thimblin from Thorp, Wisconsin  She was born in Daquscahonda, Elk County,
Pennsylvania the 20th of Mar 1880.

Edna remarried after Albert's death.  She and  Albert Barlow were married at Albert's home in Jim Falls, Chippewa County, Wisconsin, the 16th of June 1937.  Albert Henry Barlow was born 14 Jan 1879, in Chippewa County, Wisconsin the son of Henry and Sarah (White) Barlow.  He died in Cadott, Chippewa County, Wisconsin, the 26th of May 1957 and is buried in Brooklawn Cemetery, Cadott, Chippewa County, Wisconsin.  Edna died in Cadott the 8th of July 1960.  She is buried next to Albert Henry Barlow.
