        There is only one Selwitschka family in the 1900 census, Joseph  Selwitschka. I have a report card of his daughter Aloisia Selwitschker stating that she was born August 8, 1878, in Hohenröhrn, Bavaria. She did very well in weekday school receiving all A's and B's. The school was in Mauth and she attended from May 5, 1884 to May 1, 1891. She is being released for weekend school. Mauth is in the diocese of Passau. I also have a confirmation certificate of Aloisia's dated the 14th of July, 1890.  Aloisia is the daughter of Joseph and the sister to my great grandmother Theresia Selwitschka Winkelbauer. 

            Later a letter was sent to Aloisia on December 6, 1893 from Hohenröhrn by Kreszunz Krikl, who claims "to be your mother who raised you from the time of her death". Other names mentioned in the letter are Schmutzen, Katherina Schuster, Franz Reidl, and Franz Krikl. Aloisia immigrated to America in 1893, the letter was sent to her at her sisters, Therese Selwitschka Winkelbauer, address. Aloisia married Leonard Seibold in Oshkosh in 1898. They were both dead by 1904. Aloisia in 1902 and Leonard in 1904. They had two children Leonard (1899-?) and Otto (?-?). Below is a photo of her brother John and Francis Selwitschka and their children John, Therese, Mary, and Francis in the buggy. The man in the center is Leonard Seibold  and you can barely see the head of Aloisia behind the fence next to him. They are in front of John's house on Ninth Street.

Father of Theresia who married Joseph Winkelbauer

He lives at 639 Ninth St. with his second wife, Aloysia Blechinger and their granddaughter Louise Heidl. He claims Austria and she claims Bohemia. He arrived in 1885 and she in 1886. Per 1900 census.

Joseph was born March, 1843 and died April, 1921. He married Aloysia Blechinger, who was born June, 1841 and died May, 1911. The first may have  died in Europe. She was Elizabeth Schoettl.

But this is very confusing on the 1900 census it is written that her name is Petronella.
