Wiese Family Genealogy Report


Della Ellen Wiese and her sister Dora June Hite

I know almost nothing about Della and her sister Dora.

Their parents appear to have died sometime between Dora's birth in 1874 and census time 1880 because Dora seems to have been adopted by the Hite family. The only reason I know they are sisters is that the "Dora Hite" living in the Shill household is listed as Dulin's sister-in-law.

Everything else I have follows:

Mr. Wiese was born in Germany (Source: 1900 Jasper Co., IA Census, daughters say their father born in Germany.). He married [Unknown]. She was born in Ohio (Source: 1900 Jasper Co., IA Census, daughters say mother born in Ohio.). Both parents were probably both dead before 1880, by which time Dora appears to have been adopted.

Children of Mr. Wiese and [Unknown] are:
1. Della Ellen Wiese, born 22 December 1869 in Iowa (Source: Tombstone.); died 29 March 1938 in Kellogg, Jasper County, Iowa (Source: Family record collected by W.A. Anderson.). She married Dulin Spencer Shill 23 November 1886 in Jasper County, Iowa (Source: Caryn Shill, noted 11 Jan. 2001.); born 2 November 1861 in Kellogg, Jasper County, Iowa (Source: Tombstone, family tradition.); died 10 September 1906 in Probably Kellogg, Jasper County, Iowa.
