Angeline Angele Chartrand was born December 15, 1853 in Riversdale, Bruce Co.,Ontario, the daughter of Luc Chartrand and Marguerite Caskanette. Angeline was the 4th child of 12.

On November 4, 1871, Angeline married Jospeh Jacob Kroetsch, in Formosa, Bruce Co., Ontario. Joseph Jacob was a shrewd and hard-working business man and was involved with various businesses. He was a member of Ancient Order of United Workmen, Lodge no. 229 (Hoxie) ...this organization was also very 'strong' in Ontario, so JJ could have first joined there, and continued in Hoxie. JJ also was a FreeMason.

Per Jane Klassen's Kroetch Family book:
"Joseph took over the operation of John Baptist's woolen mill in Formosa, Ontario. He married Angeline Chartrand, daughter of Luc and Margaret Cascagnette Chartrand on November 4, 1871. Joseph and Angeline had 12 children. The first two died as infants in Formosa, the next three were born at Greenock, which was nearby. In 1878 or 1879, Joseph & Angeline removed from Inneskillen to Manitoulin Island, to be closer to Luc and Marguerite Chartrand. Four more children were born there. About 1886, Joseph & his family moved to Plainville, Kansas. Three more children were born in Plainville, KS."

On February 6, 1896, JJ Kroetch is noted in the Hoxie Sentinel (Kenneth, Kansas) as manager of the Foster Lumber Co.

On December 3, 1896; Hoxie Sentinel (Kenneth, KS): "...J.J. Kroetch has returned from Grinell, where he went several days ago to check out a car of lumber, which he sold, to be used in the erection of an addition to the Catholic Church at Angelus..."

The family were very committed to their Catholic faith, and lived about a block from the Catholic church in Plainville.

On July 5, Angeline lost her husband to heatstroke.
Hutchinson News Monday, July 05, 1897, Hutchinson, Kansas
"Fatal Case of Sunstroke: Belleville, Ill., July 4; J.J. Kroetch, of Plainville, KS, who was in the employ of William Schiebel, a Shiloh Valley farmer, was overcome by the heat while harvesting wheat on Schiebels' farm, five miles east of this city, and died before assistance could be obtained or any relief afforded him."
Because of JJ's membership in the AOUW, he left Angeline an insurance policy (about $5,000) which was unusual for those days!

" Mrs. J.J. Kroetch and daughter, expect to start in a short time for an extended visit with relatives and friends in Idaho..."

By 1906, Angeline decided to sell her property in Plainville and move out west to Idaho. She used part of her husband's insurance policy to invest in land outside of Harrison, Idaho where her sons and son-in-laws started a family lumber business.

Plainville Times July 19, 1906
"..Mrs. Kroetch last week sold her houses and lots in Freeman & Coopers addition to Thomas Traylor....Mrs. Kroetch expects to leave soon for Idaho where her sons Al and Joe reside. P.D. Spellman of the Bartlett Land Agency made the deal."

Per Plainville Times, dated Sept. 13, 1906:
"Mrs. Angeline Kroetch and family leave Monday for Couer D'Alene, Idaho, to make her future home. Her sons Lawrence and John are there working at lumber business. One of the other boys is in Spokane, and another in Canada near there."

Received the death cert for Angeline 10/28/01. Washington State file #144. Angeline lived at the St. Joseph's Home on E. 707 Mission Ave., Spokane for the last 4 years of her life.

Heritage

Ethnicity & Lineage

Angeline was primarily of French descent - a descendant of one of the "Daughters of the King" and a French soldier homesteading in Canada - and was born in Canada. Her family had been in Canada since the 1640s and she moved with her (of German descent) husband to the U.S. (Kansas) after she was married.

Nationality & Locations

Riversdale, Bruce Co.,Ontario but moved to the Kansas with her husband and children in the early 1890's
Childhood
Adulthood

Professions

Until her husband J.J. died in his early 40s, Angeline was a mother and wife. (He died on a return trip home - he stopped to help a friend who was shocking wheat and he died of sunstroke. His grave is at home in Plainville, KS)

Somewhat unusual for the time, JJ left a fairly large insurance policy. Angeline remained in Kansas for quite some time (my grandfather, Hollis, lived with her when he was young) but she staked some of her sons in a logging operation in Idaho, which I believe is still in the hands of some of the family.

A devout Catholic, Angeline moved to Spokane Washington in her later years and was the housekeeper for the priests of Gonzaga University in Spokane. When she died, she left the balance of her estate to the University. I believe she is buried on the grounds of Gonzaga.

She must have been a strong woman - after her husband died, she raised her children, set them up in business, and in her later years became a housekeeper for the Jesuits - she was of strong belief. She also raised a grandson (my grandfather) after his parents divorced.

Do you recall where she was a housekeeper for the Jesuits? Or the name of the place? I assume it was in Canada or Washington State?

Angeline (Chartrand) Kroetsch, mother to 7 children, passed away on January 28, 1943 in Spokane, Washington at 89 years of age. She was buried in ST. THOMAS CATHOLIC CEMETERY, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. She was born on December 15, 1853 in Riversdale, Ontario Canada. She was born to Luc Chartrand and Marguerite (Caskanette) Chartrand. Angeline married Joseph Jacob Kroetsch, and they gave birth to Margaret Kroetsch, Lawrence Francis Kroetsch, Elizabeth Ann (Kroetsch) Minning, Rosabel Orillia (Kroetsch) Connolly, Albert Aloysius Kroetsch, Mary Josephine Kroetsch, and John Baptist Henry Kroetsch.

Refresh this page to see various historical events that occurred during Angeline's lifetime.

In 1853, in the year that Angeline (Chartrand) Kroetsch was born, in May, Levi Strauss & Co. was founded in San Francisco. In the 1870's, the company began manufacturing denim overalls and their first pair of Levis 501 jeans were introduced in the 1890s.

In 1902, by the time she was 49 years old, about 150 thousand United Mine Workers went on strike in eastern Pennsylvania for a wage increase and more suitable hours. They eventually got a 10% raise and their workday was reduced from 10 hours to 9. Because winter was coming and most people at the time heated their homes with coal, President Teddy Roosevelt arbitrated between the owners and the workers - the first time that the Federal government arbitrated in a strike.

In 1919, she was 66 years old when in Norfolk Virginia, the first rotary dial telephones were introduced by the American Telephone and Telegraph Company (AT&T), making it easier to make a call without an operator.

In 1935, she was 82 years old when the BOI's name (the Bureau of Investigation) was changed to the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) and it officially became a separate agency with the Department of Justice. J. Edgar Hoover, the Chief of the BOI, continued in his office and became the first Director of the FBI. The FBI's responsibility is to "detect and prosecute crimes against the United States".

In 1943, in the year of Angeline (Chartrand) Kroetsch's passing, on June 20th through June 22nd, the Detroit Race Riot erupted at Belle Isle Park. The rioting spread throughout the city (made worse by false rumors of attacks on blacks and whites) and resulted in the deployment of 6,000 Federal troops. 34 people were killed, (25 of them black) - mostly by white police or National Guardsmen, 433 were wounded (75 percent of them black) and an estimated $2 million of property was destroyed. The same summer, there were riots in Beaumont, Texas and Harlem, New York.
