_______________________________________________________
Though our family notes from Helen Kutz said that Rosette married someone by the last name of Raney, in 2006 I changed this to Fallman because:
-The family notes also said she had two children, Charley and Jessie
- On the 1900 Census, in Kasota, LeSeur, MN, we find Minnie Sinder (Wilhemena Kutz married Andrew Sinder after her Kutz husband died)
-Minnie Sinder, age 70, is living with Rosella Fallman, husband Williams, son Charley and daughter, Jessie.

about Rosella Fallman
Name: Rosella Fallman
Home in 1900: Kasota, Le Sueur, Minnesota
Age: 36
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1864
Birthplace: Minnesota
Relationship to head-of-house: Wife
Spouse's name: William
Race: White

Household Members: Name Age
William Fallman 43
Rosella Fallman 36
Jessie S Fallman 5
Charley R Fallman 9
Minnie Sinder 70
***********************************
Possibly married ? Raney after William Fallman? Or possibly before and son, Charley's middle initial R. stands for Raney.

From Cousin Pat, about Rosette (her g2 grandmother):
She was very talented and made rugs out of potato sacks, and made her own patterns. Her favorite design was a black rug with a pink rose center. She loved flowers. She supported her daughter Jessie on her own. In 1889 she had an illegitamate son, and had the MARRIED man give the son his name and she kept her son named Charlie Raney. On July 7, 1893 she married William Zellmer and stayed married to him.

Noted events in her life were:

Cemetery: Greenhill Cemetery, Kasota, MN.

Rosetta married John SCHUMACHER on 18 Nov 1880. John was born in Berlin, Germany.

Marriage Notes: John Schumacher was an alcoholic and beat Rosette, which is why she did the unheard of thing (for the time) and divorced him.

Children from this marriage were:

+ 21 F    i. Jessie Ann SCHUMACHER was born on 17 Jul 1884 in LeSueur Co., MN and died on 5 Feb 1968 in LeSueur Co., MN at age 83.

Jessie married Nels Ludwig "Louie" HENDRICKSON (b. 25 Jul 1877, d. 16 Apr 1947) on 27 Nov 1901 in MN.

   22 F    ii. Effie SCHUMACHER was born in 1881 and died in 1881.

General Notes: Headstone exists in Woodlawn Cemetery next to Amelia Kutz - no birth or death date. It is assumed, by the family, that this was the first child of Rosetta Kutz and John Schumacher, who died from a beating Rosetta received, while pregnant, from Schumacher.

Rosetta had an affair with Charles RANEY. Charles was born 1855 to 1870 in Kasota, MN.

Their child was:

   23 M    i. Charley George RANEY was born on 21 Sep 1889 in LeSueur, MN and died on 15 Dec 1984 in Faribault, Rice, MN 5 6 at age 95. Another name for Charley was RANEY.

General Notes: Am keeping the name Charley Raney in because of records that show his mother's maiden name as Kutz. Family records state that Rosette married ? Raney. However, have found Rosette (Rosella) living with husband Wm. Fallman on 1900 Census, with son Charley R. Fallman. Am at least pretty certain this is our Rosette, because her mother Minnie (Kutz) Sinder is also living with them. However, it is possible Charley is from a prior marriage to ? Raney, thus his middle initial R. and is the same Charley as this Charley Raney that is found in the MN death index.
2007 Notes: According to family in MN, with good tracking records, there never was a Fallman, that the census is incorrect.

Rosetta next married William ZELLMER.

8. Harper KUTZ was born on 9 Jun 1862 in Ann Arbor, Washtenaw Co., MI 4 and died on 18 Feb 1901 in LeSueur, MN at age 38. The cause of his death was Typhoid Fever. Another name for Harper was Harvey KUTZ.

From Pat Lenertz:

Grandma remembered him as a "dare devil". She said one night they were all playing cards, and drinking and a friend bet him he wouldn't cut off a finger--- any way he took that bet and cut off a finger. When he was sober the next day he was sorry he had done it. He and Rosa had 10 kids and I have all their information.

Harper married Rosina "Rose" or "Rosa" HANEY, daughter of Christian HANEY and Elizabeth KRAMER, on 14 May 1883 in Blue Earth, MN. Rosina was born on 18 Oct 1855 in Peoria, IL and died on 5 Jul 1935 in Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California at age 79.

Marriage Notes: IGI Record on LDS FamilySearch.org website shows that Harper Married "Rosa Diets" at Blue Earth, MN.

Birth Notes: Birthdate and state obtained from LDS database, IGI file, showing her spouse as Harvey or Harper.

General Notes: After Harper died, Rose moved to Los Angeles in 1910, with sons Arthur and Louis, where she lived until her death. Her Dietz children also moved to L.A. (am not sure if all did), and the 1920 and 1930 Census in Los Angeles, shows living with daughter Barbara Dietz, who remained single.

Notes provided by Helen Kutz, wife of John Albert Kutz, stated that there were twins from Roses's first marriage (Dietz), named Louisa and William, but that they died at birth. The below census seems to contradict this. Have not been able to find records of Louisa or William beyond this one census, so possibly they just died young, rather than at birth.

One more curious note. Our family lore from Helen Kutz, states that Rose had a child, Fred Dietz, in 1883. after Henry Dietz died (which she said was in 1883), and he was brought up by Rose's sister, Mary, in Wisconsin. I have found no record of this so far. I wonder if this was actually Ernest Dietz, who may have been born just after his father's death.

Below, the 1910 Federal Census shows the family still living in MN, before their move to CA. Rose had put her occupation down as a trained nurse, working for a private family.

   24 M    i. George KUTZ was born on 22 Feb 1884 in LeSueur, MN (probably) and died in 1898 in LeSueur, MN (probably) at age 14.

General Notes: George, as Rose and Harper's firstborn is reported in the Family History of Helen Kutz, with the exact birthdate given and states that he died at approximately age 14. There is an entry in the Minnesota Death Index as follows:

Place of Birth: na
Mother Maiden Name: na
certid# 1928-MN-009466
Date of Death: 07/09/1928

Because of Nicollet being so close to LeSeuer, this is possibly our George. There is no info on him and/or the above George H. on either Ancestry.com or FamilySearch.org.

   25 M    ii. Alfred Charles "Ruby" KUTZ was born on 7 Jan 1885 in St. Peter, Nicolett, MN, died on 26 Apr 1968 in New Ulm, MN at age 83, and was buried in Sleepy Eye, Brown, MN.

Death Notes: Death Date and Death Location taken from two separate entries at the Familysearch website, one with date, no location and other vice versa. Both confirm parents.

The 1920 Census shows Art living in Vallejo, CA, with a large group of people. Possibly they are all borders in a lodging house or work camp of some kind?
