The christian name of Mrs. A. E. Mau from Wisconsin
« on: Monday 20 October 14 23:06 BST (UK) »
Hello everyone,

I've been trying to discover the christian name and maiden name of a Mrs. A. E. Mau from I think Wisconsin. Mau is the married surname and A. E. the initials of her husband's first and middle name. I know Mrs. Mau was a Striddle as she a sister, a Miss Margaret Elizabeth Striddle who became married as Mrs. Margaret Elizabeth Prebensen and was well known for being called Elizabeth or Maggie. Mrs mau also had a brother August, a father August and a mother Margaret. It is likely she was from Neenah.

Any help finding her christian name would be wonderful.

With my kindest regards

Ashley

OK, here is that family in 1880.  There is a sister named Lena born about 1864 in Wisconsin.

Marriage details?  Possible mistranscription of Mau as 'Mare'.
