Of all the funeral cards, that circulate out there, I wonder how many ever find their way back to the families of origin. A simple funeral card is the summation of a life lived.
Enjoy the discovery process.

Shown as Katie Thede--Catherina M. Thede of Crystal, Tama, Iowa at age 2, born July 1897 in Iowa in the Twelfth Census of the United States, 1900, Crystal, Tama, Iowa, Roll T623_460, page 3A, Enumeration District 134. In 1900, she is the oldest child to Peter and Annie M. Thede. Also shown in the census is her younger sibling Elsie, age 4 months. By the 1910 census, Catherina (Katie) Thede is not with her family as revealed on the funeral card.
The 8,926 entries of the family tree, Roots, Branches, Twigs and Leaves by Kathlin4091 on Ancestry.com has the Thede family listed with Catherina missing.
The creator of the family tree will be notified to include Catherina with her family.

Thank you kindly for assistance. Upon further investigation, the reason "Katie" is not listed on my family tree is because The four Thede siblings had married into my family. Katie is no direct relative of mine. (Dilemma, do you had family of in-laws into your tree or not?)

However, because she was a child when she died, I will go ahead and include her in my tree. Thanks. This site is very interesting.

Kathlin - Thank you for responding. Your family tree reflects hours of dedication to your family and branches. You are the only one to have included Peter and Annie Thede in your work on Ancestry. Catherina has not been forgotten. Best regards.
