Wilhelmine Rohloff

Wilhelmine Aldophine Carlotte Rohwedel Rohloff

She was sometimes called Minnie or Mathilde.  She was the step-mother of Johanna Rohloff Leverenz.  Johanna’s birth-mother died when she was only nine years old.  Her father remarried when she was a young teen so this is the “mother” that raised her through her adolescent years.  The family often referred to her as “The Old Mother”.  She lived with Hannah’s half-brother, John Rohloff, on Superior Street in Appleton after John’s wife died and he was left with four children to raise by himself.  So Mathilde, or Minnie, Rohloff got to raise a new crop of youngsters at John’s house, too.  The nickname “The Old Mother” well described her.  Everyone always spoke very highly of her.
