  • Notes 
    • Magdalena was probably also born in Waterloo Township, but the family soon moved into their new quarters in Wilmot where Magdalena grew up. In 1847 she married David Kropf, son of Jacob Kropf and Magdalena Rothacker. The Kropfs had the two properties east of the Oesch homestead where they farmed and ran a sawmill. David became the chief sawmiller in the family. In 1853, the sawmill burned to the ground. Although they had no insurance, they rebuilt the mill.

      In 1862, however, David and Magdalena sold their properties in Wilmot and left for Ohio. Due to the Civil War in progress at the time, they were there only a year and returned to Hay Township where Magdalena's family was living. In 1867, they again moved south to Hickory County this time where Magdalena's brother Christian was located at the time. They also moved to Cass County, were members of the Sycamore Grove Amish Mennonite Church, and are buried in the Clearfork Cemetery. Several of David and Magdalena's children migrated to Oregon where one now finds numerous descendants.

      _________________

      Kropf - On the 18th of July in Cass Co., Mo., Magdalena, wife of David Kropf, aged 60 years, 5 months and 9 days. She was buried on the 20th. Services by Moses Yoder and J.C. Kenagy, from Job 14: 1-10; 7: 1-10. She leaves a bereaved husband, eleven children and 21 grand children who mourn their loss; but they mourn not as those who have no hope. Deceased had been feeble for several years, and it was her desire to depart and be with Christ. She was formerly from Canada, and was for many years a consistent member of the Amish Mennonite Church
