Information on the parents of Frederick G Brener, born in South Milwaukee 10 Mar 1865 and died in Shawano WI 29 Jan 1928. Baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran church. Brener is the name of his stepfather. His birth name was probably Goddake. He had three older brothers, Heinrick/Henry (1858-1938), Theodore (1862-1898) and John Charles (1863-1944). The boys’ family name is listed in the 1880 census as Gorke. Stepfather’s name was Jacob Brener (1813-1887), born in Switzerland. Mother was Anna/Adeline (c.1839-1898), possible maiden name of Holt. “Wisconsin Marriages, pre-1907” record Anna Goedecke and Jacob Brinar being married on 30 Apr 1866 in Milwaukee. Frederick’s nephew, Evan (son of Theodore), registered in the WWI draft as Evan Goddake and continued using that name for the rest of his life. Search of Civil War records for Goddake (since he disappears around 1865) have been negative. I have also contacted Milwaukee County Records, UW-Stevens Point, UWMilwaukee and Wisconsin Historical Society. Any help in finding Frederick G. Brener’s biological parents would be gratefully appreciated.
