Fritz Anton Rosenbladt (1875-1930), the older son of Jens Ludewig Rosenblad (follow link to the left), arrived to the US in the autumn of 1891 about half a year before the rest of the family. His given name was gradually changed into Fred in the US, and “Anton” faded away.

By the 1900 Census he was still living at home (Highland Township, Guthrie County, Iowa) attending “Medical School”, 1905 he lived alone in Audubon, and about 1907 he was married to Clara Vermillion (1882-1958) who was still living with her family at Iowa City 1905.

In 1910 he owned their dwelling in Leroy, Audobon County, running a general practice as medical doctor, but before 1915 they had moved to Des Moines where he worked as a surgeon – probably to expand his experience, and in 1916 (and 1917) he was – still as surgeon in Des Moines – among 545 prominent Danes in the US whose short-biographies were published in a Danish-American calendar issued at Seattle, then by his draft-registration at the end of WW I (1918) they lived at Council Bluffs, 404 First Street, and his surgeon practice was at 410 “City Nat. Bk. Bldg.”

By the Censuses 1920 and 1930 he had – still in Council Bluffs – his own surgeon practice and (1930) a house worth 10.000 $, but November 12th that year he passed away and was buried at Highland Cemetery. His widow, Clara, moved to St. Pauls, Minnesota - probably following their son Louis, who she, obviously, accompanied further to Tacoma, Washington, where she passed away 1958. Her funeral took place at Council Bluffs, Iowa, although her burial place hasn't been recorded, so far.

They had these children: Louis Mayo Rosenbladt (1908-1967), William J. Rosenbladt (1910-1962) and Miriam N. Rosenbladt (1912-2002) – further details below.  

 

Louis Mayo Rosenbladt (1908-1967), oldest son of Fritz Anton (Fred) Rosenbladt (see above), graduated 1926 from Abraham Lincoln High School at Council Bluffs, was listed as student in a City Directory 1929, and lived at home in Council Bluffs by the 1930 Census. 

He went into the footsteps of his father and became a surgeon at the Northern Pacific Hospital at St. Pauls, Minnesota, where he met a nurse of Swedish linage, Florence Elisabeth Sandström (1917-2003), who he married.

By 1946 he was registered as owner of his grandfathers (Jens Ludewig Rosenbladt - follow link at left) farm at Highland Township, Guthrie County, Iowa, and same year the family moved to Tacoma, Washington.

An obituary (regarding Florence 2003) brings many details of their lifes and relatives, but living descendants, acknowledged or assumed, and their life events will not be published, unless they present their biographical information by themselves with permission to make such content public.

 

William J. Rosenbladt (1910-1962), youngest son of Fritz Anton (Fred) Rosenbladt (see above), graduated 1928 from Abraham Lincoln High School at Council Bluffs, was listed as student in a City Directory 1929 and lived at home in Council Bluffs by the 1930 Census. He died in Olmsted County, Minnesota.

It is assumed that he was married to Maxine W. Rosenbladt (1914-1992), who died with "last residence" at Olympia, Thurston County, Washington. Obviously she died outside Washington, as she is not registered in  the Washington Deaths index. Her maiden name is unknown, so far, but "W. J. Rosenbladt" was still registered in a phone directory of Olympia from 1993, 

Nothing further has been found, so far.  

 

Miriam N. Rosenbladt (1912-2002), daughter of Fritz Anton (Fred) Rosenbladt (see above), graduated 1930 from Abraham Lincoln High School at Council Bluffs, was listed as student in a City Directory 1929 and lived at home in Council Bluffs by the 1930 Census.

She was married to Paul E. Bondo (1911-2000), born in Iowa, Pottawattamie County, Hazel Dell Township, who was a son of Danish immigrants that moved to Racine City, Wisconsin before 1920. His father was a farmer in Iowa, but became a pastor at the Danish Lutheran Church at Racine - from 1930 at St. Ansgar Lutheran Church at Toronto, Canada. His grandfather was a preacher in Denmark, too.

Paul E. Bondo was a medical doctor at Tacoma General Hospital in Washington (state) by the mid-50es (probably before and after, too, as his Social Security Number was issued in Washington before 1951). His "last residence" was recorded at Puyallup, Pierce County, Washington. Miriam lived at Tacoma by her death.

Nothing further has been found, so far.
