The Molitor Children of Melrose, Minnesota

Anton and Katherine (Wagner) Molitor lived in Melrose, Minnesota in the late 1800's and early 1900's.  They had 10 children.  This photo was taken before the last three children were born. In the top row are Adell, Rose, and Ambrose.  In the front row are Chick, Alvina, and Alex.  The siblings still to be born were Roman, Anna, Joseph and Pete.   I am told that Chick was well known in Melrose into the 1990's because he had run a boating concession,, an early version of a resort.

If you are a family member who would like to see pictures of Anton and Katherine, contact me through this blog and I will track them down.

In adulthood, Ambrose changed his name to Moliter, to avoid confusion over the multitudes of Molitors doing business at his local bank.  So, some Minnesota Molitors are now Moliters, but the DNA is still shared.
