(Birthdates from 1900 census)

1900 census, City of Sheboygan, Sheboygan Co., E.D. 73, sheet 17, lines 82-87:
At 2214 N. 15th st
Fred Grupe, Sr.(46), teamster, listed wife Augusta (42), and sons Fred Jr (15), William (9), Paul (7), and Gustave (1 month). They had been married 16 years, and borth were born in Germany while the children were all born in Wisconsin. (Census notes only 2 children living of 4 born, but I'm assuming that's an error.) They both had immigrated in 1883. Fred had filed his papers stating his intent to naturalize.

1920 census, City of Sheboygan, Sheboygan Co., E.D. 141, sheet 18, lines 24-35:
At 2238 N. 15th st
Paul Grupe (26), driver for dairy products co., listed with wife Rose (26) and daughter Evelyn (10 or 11 months?)
At 2224 N 15th st
Fred Grupe, Jr. (35), teamster, listed with wife Amelia (40) and children Viola (13), Edna (11), Elnora [Eleanor?] (6), Lucille (3), and Raymond (1)
At 2214 N. 15th st
Fred Grupe, Sr. (64), teamster, listed with wife Augusta (60). Both have birthplace Hanover, Germany. Here their immigration dates are given as "1838" (a dyslexic census taker?) and Fred Sr, has papers to be naturalized but Augusta is listed with "Al" for Alien.
