    Notes 
    • Came to America in 1871 (from 1900 Census).
    •        Selma Lange's diary tells a wonderful story. "Both parents (Anna and Herman) came to America from Germany though Herman arrived before Anna. (Anna had a sister who also came to America before her.) Herman left Anna in Germany with the promise that he would send for her as soon as he could earn money to pay her fare. Meanwhile, Anna saved enough money of her own to come to the United States because she was afraid some American girl would "take him" as Sally said. Anna arrived in Chicago, but without sufficient money to travel on to Augusta, Wisconsin, where Herman was farming. Anna worked as a maid for some wealthy people while in Chicago so she could save money to go on to be with Herman in Augusta.
      Anna had not sent word to Herman that she had left Germany. Herman was hard at work in the fields with a team of horses when Anna arrived at the farm. Anna slowly walked out into the field toward Herman. When he realized it was Anna, he threw the reins aside and ran frantically to meet his beloved Anna. They were married shortly thereafter. "What a love story; how romantic," Sally said." [SLL 03.]
             In the 1900 U. S. Federal Census, Anna is a 39 year old, white, married female. She has been married to Herman F. Lange for 17 years. She has given birth to nine children, all of whom are living at the time. She was born in Germany of parents who were born in Germany - probably Posen, Prussia, now in Poland. While the census data indicate that she was in the U. S nine years prior to Herman's arrival, I [DLL] do not think these data are correct because of the above story. There is no indication of the naturalization of Anna Belter. She reads, writes, and speaks English. She lives with her husband, Herman, and nine children (Clara, Kuno, Robert, Hattie, Selma, Annie, Max, Minnie, Ruth) in Cleveland Township, Jackson County, Wisconsin [HFL 07.]
             In the 1905 Wisconsin State Census, Anna E. Bölter Lange is a 45 year old, white married female. She is married to Herman F. Lange. She was born in Germany of parents who were also born in Germany. She is considered a farm laborer, and works 12 months of the year, most likely on her husband's farm. Anna lives with her husband, and with seven of the children to whom she has given birth: Clara, Max, Selma, Anna, Wilhelmine or Minnie, Ruth, and Lydia. The family lives in Cleveland Township, Jackson County, Wisconsin. [HFL 14.]
