New Updated Information On
House of Joseph Carl Lobsinger

Terry Schulte of Grand Rapids, MI., sends new information concerning the House of Joseph Carl Lobsinger, a branch of the Canadian family.

From the beginning: An unnamed Lobsinger appeared in Langatte France about 1650. One of his sons was a fellow named Antoine Lobsinger who had a son named Etienne. Etienne was the father of Antoine Lobsinger who became the companion and tithe collector for the parish priest, thereby earning the title of "Count".

That title was passed on to his son Jean Louis Lobsinger, then to Jean Louis' son Joseph Lobsinger, who, with two of his brothers, immigrated to the United states in the first half of the 1800s. Count Joseph settled in Ontario Canada and one of his children was Joseph Carl Lobsinger, whom we designate as the patriarch of the House of Joseph.

Joseph Carl Lobsinger had 4 children by his first wife Mary Anne Weiler, and another 9 by his second wife Josephine Emil.

Peter Paul(Petter)Lobsinger was the fourth child born to Joseph Carl and Josephine Emil. He married Francisca Maszynski (SP?) and they had 8 children of their own. One of them was William Edmund Valentine Lobsinger, born 13 October 1899 in Millersburg, MI.

William married Minnie Walters, who was the mother of his two children, Glenadine Louise and Mildred Lobsinger. Later, William married Gladys Stang, but had no more children.

Glenadine Lobsinger married John W. Carter on 30 April 1923 at Alma, MI., and one of their children, Jacklyn D Carter is the wife of Terry K. Schulte, family historian and provider of this information bringing the family up to the current generation.

The information has been added to our data base and while entirely too long to print in a story, it will appear in a family chart in a future issue. In the meantime, complete GEDCOM files of the Lobsinger family are available for Macintosh computers. The file is huge, now, and takes up a couple of megabites of memory and lots of disc space. We will be happy to send either the entire data base, or extract your particular lineage and ancestry from it, if you want a copy. We are working on getting the data base loaded on the internet, where you can download it when you wish. More info on that when we get it done.

Terry brings the family of Joseph Carl down to the two great-great granddaughters of William Edmund Valentine Lobsinger: The most recent to arrive are Kristina Nichole Eberlein, born 13

December 1995 to Mark and Karen (Schulte) Eberlein; and Kayleigh Renee Schulte, born 03 June 1996 to Gregory and Shiela (ie and not ei) Schulte. The girls are, of course, Terry's latest grandchildren.

 Notes From The Mail Bag

From Rita (Lobsinger) McDonnell comes a nice note inviting us to Chilliwack, B.C., for a reunion of the descendants of Louis George Steven Lobsinger. The reunion was held July 13 in Burnaby. Unfortunately, we couldn't be there as we burned up all our vacation time visiting my mother in South Florida this year.

Rita went on a cruise from June 1 to 8th on a beautiful new Sun Princess ship with three friends. They were on the wrong side of the boat to view the Orcas and Dolphins, Rita says, but the trip was wonderful anyway. It's also nice to be back home, she reports. This is Rita's third cruise (and last, she says).

Her brother Lorne Lobsinger and wife Elly were down in Oregon and Upper California during June, she reports, and that's why we haven't heard from him lately.

Rita grows tomato plants and geraniums on her patio in her spare time, and says her sisters Ruby Chase and Marie Bartolome are looking forward to the reunion as well. So are Penny and Al Spidel (Penny is Ruby's daughter). They live in Nanaimo on Vancouver Island. Wish we could have been there.(House of George)

Via the Internet, we get an occasional message from Harvey and Beverlee Lobsinger of Edina, MN.. Harvey notes the dreary weather and farming outlook for our area of the country as recorded in the Wall Street Journal on May 22. Fortunately, the big city media paint a picture worse than it really is. . (House of Peter)

Beatrice Long, Buffalo, NY., sends a short note and is keeping her spirits up in spite of a bad year with heart problems and a couple of cancer operations. She's going on 89 and says she enjoys the newsletter. (House of Louis)

James B. Franklin, a descendent of Paul Lobsinger, sent us a new address. He has worked as a Petroleum landman for many years out of Amarillo Texas. (House of Paul)

James' brother Ted Franklin, now a retired veterinarian in Bryan, TX., reports that I got a few details mixed up in the last newsletter. This is not surprising, as the older I get, the more details there are to mix up. Ted also sends the obit on his third daughter Martha, who passed away in April, leaving 2 children. They will be cared for by Ted's youngest son Joe, who is an M.D. doing his residency in Oklahoma City. (Interesting side note: My son-in-law, Chuck Crabtree's brother is also doing his residency in Okla City and he and Dr. Joe work together... small world.) (House of Paul)

Teresa Walsh, Brantford, ON., writes that the long Canadian winter is a bit more than they wanted this year. Her letter arrived in May, and she says it still hadn't warmed up a bit. Other than the weather, things in Brantford seem to be fine for her branch of the family. (House of Louis)

Lorne and Elly Lobsinger of Maple Ridge, BC, did drop us a card in May, before they started their springtime travels in Oregon and California. The post card is a picture of log cabins at the Hay U Ranch near Yahk, BC, which is the last business Lorne was in before he retired. (House of George)

Dolores and John Schmidt write that they, too, are tired of the Canadian winter, but the violets are peeking out from under the snow in early May when Dolores dropped us her note. She promises that this year they are going to get their cabin by the lake opened up earlier. She reports that it appears there will be representatives from nearly all the Lobsinger families at the Mildmay Lobsinger Reunion that was held in early June. We haven't received any reports on how that went, and we were unable to make it this year. We might get some pictures and reports yet, before I close out this newsletter. Hope everyone had a good time.

Dolores says John is playing horseshoes, so he's happy, but kids are having a tough time finding jobs even after college graduation. She sent some of the clippings we've reproduced in this newsletter, and reports that Ellen Lobsinger was in poor health for the past year, so her death was not unexpected. She adds that staying home during the winter was not one of the best decisions they have made, except for the exchange rate savings... (House of Peter)

Louis J. Lobsinger, Jr., dropped us a note asking that we wish him luck in his new venture. He left a successful career as an institutional stockbroker in Detroit in early May to form a new consulting business in San Francisco and to tackle his life-long dream to write music for movies. He is the son of Louis J. Lobsinger, Sr. of Flushing Ml., and grandson of Joseph Lobsinger of Detroit, Ml. (House of Louis)

Sara A. Baker, Marathon, FL, is the mother-in-law of Teresa Ann (Lobsinger) Baker. She dropped us a note to let us know she enjoys the newsletter and is a genealogy buff herself. She sent Teresa's husband's ancestry to us. His name is Brian Linn Baker. Teresa and Brian both operate retail clothing stores in the Miami, FL., area. Sara, retired, lives on a sailboat in the Florida Keys and says she has a "wonderful life." (House of Peter)

John and Barb Zitars of Waterloo, ON., sent us a photo of Joey, born Sept. 1, 1993, so we'll be happy to put it in here with the rest of the pictures of the newest generation of Lobsinger descendants. (House of Louis)

Joey Zitars

Harold and Allean Lobsinger, Apache Junction, AZ and Denver, CO., send us greetings. Harold notes that he started his 90th year on March 29th at 5:30 am. Says Harold, " The Human Heart is a wonderful machine. "Over the years mine has beat an average of 75 times a minute." As of his birthday, Harold says, his heart has been beating for 46,810,000 minutes. "That means my heart has beat 3,510,750,000 times... If they could only build cars that would run that good for that long!"(House of Antoine)

Harold's brother Dale L Lobsinger from Oceanside, CA., sent us some postage money and a note... "Here is a very belated check with my apologies. Was over to see brother Harold for his 90th birthday and he looks and acts great!" Well, Dale, I forgot to take the check out of the envelope until just now, so I'm belatedly cashing it. Hope I haven't messed up your bookkeeping beyond repair!. Sorry. (House of Antoine)

Sr. Janet Mikol, who works among the poor, of Liverpool, England, drops us a kind letter about what a good service we are doing for the family. But in one week in her neighborhood someone crashed a stolen car, there was a gunman in an apartment building, and there was a gang fight with machetes in the streets. "If I stopped to think about it all, I'd probably pack up and move away, but some one's needed to work here. Why not me?" Well, we know who's really doing the great service... (House of Louis)

David Lobsinger, St. Clair Shores, MI, writes to send his annual postage donation and to "let you know I am still living at age 94." David and his brother Irwin (Lobby) are the last survivors of a family of 11 children of John Lobsinger. "I am proud to say I have every copy of the Lobsinger Newsletter and go through them and enjoy them periodically." (House of Louis)

Easter Greetings to everyone from Anne Margrett of Brantford, ON., and more comments on the harsh winter. I think I'm glad we live in Oklahoma, where we only have to put up with tornadoes and dust storms. (House of Louis)

While we're talking about the weather, here's an interesting tidbit for you movie buffs: The movie "Twister" which came out this summer, was filmed in Oklahoma, and many shots were in the Newkirk area. Most of it wound up on the cutting room floor, but the pickup truck featured throughout the movie was at one time owned by a Newkirk rural mailman. It was rebuilt and repainted for the movie role. While the story was pretty weak and the facts about our tornadoes pretty "twisted" out of shape, the special effects were quite fantastic, even if they didn't depict what really happens when a twister comes around.

Internet conversations in the past few months have included messages from Theresa M. Lobsinger ( We tried to send her a copy of the data base, but it is either too large, or got garbled in transmission. Theresa is the daughter of Susan (Graff) and Victor Lobsinger. Susan is in possession of the original First Communion Certificate of Francis Xavier Lobsinger, dated 1891, according to Theresa. Theresa is a Health Care Aide at a nursing home. (House of Peter)

Theresa's brother, Paul Lobsinger, who is a detective with the Sexual Assault Squad of the Metropolitan Toronto Police, copied the data base and found out it was too large for the computer's memory, so we extracted just his branch of the family. You can contact Paul at:

Paul also provided us with some additional members of his own family since last I had heard from them back about 1989. New additions include Zachary Daniel Lobsinger born 8 October 1989 and Megan Francis Lobsinger born 11 January 1992.

Paul has also uncovered an interesting site on the Internet. It's a searchable cemetery index with many family names. Lots of Lobsingers and where they are planted. URL is: http:// homepage.html, in case anyone wants to chase it down.

While wandering around in cyberspace, I ran into a fellow named Walter Loepsinger of Munich, CR., He says his name is actually spelled Lopsinger but he added the 'e' to compensate for not having an o-umlaut on his keyboard.

While Walter is not aware of any Lobsingers in the area, the name is so close, I think there has to be some kind of connection. Walter says his father told him his ancestors came from the region of a small village in southern Germany with the name of Lopsingen. The village is several hundred years old. Walter says a nearby city that was built in the middle ages, by the name of Nordlingen, has a gate called Lopsinger Tor (Gate to Lopsingen). This fits stories I have heard about a "castle in Germany with a Lobsinger gate."

Haven't yet had time to contact the Historical Society in Nordlingen (which has now absorbed the village of Lopsingen) but I bet they will have some interesting information for us.

Walter says his name is pretty rare in Germany, maybe about I0 people besides his family. One of them lives in Munich, however.

Does anyone know a Mary Louise Lobsinger who works as a set or costume designer with Pipedream Communications in Toronto, Ontario? What family does she belong to? I found her name listed with a touring dance company performing in Austria. After emailing the company, their secretary told me she was from Toronto. For awhile, I thought maybe I had discovered a real European Lobsinger.

John F. Lobsinger, Lake Worth, FL., has a new computer and is trying to get up to speed on it. His address is: John is a fireman, if you couldn't guess. He is also a proud grandpa and will be pleased to see the pictures of his two grandkids, Katrina and Samantha Lobsinger up above. They are the children of his son John F. Lobsinger, Jr., and wife Marsha, who live in Bethany, OK. (House of Peter)

Katrina and Samantha Lobsinger with 'Baby'

Caroline Lobsinger, up in Idaho, <>, sent us the addresses of the rest of her family, so we can put them on our mailing list.

Julie and Dana Cummings, Kennewick, WA.; Valerie Lobsinger, Redondo Beach, CA.; and Stephanie and John Collins, Richland, WA. should all get copies of this newsletter. (House of Michel)

Heather Lobsinger, daughter of Phillip A. Lobsinger and wife Carolyn of Lake Worth, FL., is a fresh graduate of the University of Florida with a BS in Aerospace Engineering. I ran into her address on the Internet, too. You can contact her at: <>. Heather is still at the university, going to grad school. She asked me not to run her high school band photo, so I won't, but there is another picture of her and also a picture of her sister Stacy in here somewhere. (House of Peter)

Brother Byron Lobsinger and his wife Christine are proud parents of a new full size almost football player named Shane Mark. See birth announcement. Byron and Chris live in Lake Worth, FL., where he is a UPS employee.

Robert W. Lobsinger and wife Susan (that's us) spent their vacation time this year in Florida visiting RWL's mother, who is now in a nursing home in Lake Worth, and the rest of the siblings and rug rats of the area.

We spent some time at Dizzy Land, and then toured the old castle San Marcos at St. Augustine, as well as the old city. Haven't been there since 1952 when I was in the 2nd grade. Seems like the castle used to be much bigger...

From there, we drove to Lake Worth and spent the rest of the week visiting with brother John, the fireman; brother Byron, the UPS guy; brother Patrick, the rooky fireman; and brother Mike, who actually lives in Port St. Lucy and works in a concrete stress lab. Was nice to see them all, but the weather is too humid for me.

Congratulations to Mike Lobsinger, Mildmay, ON., for capturing First Place in the recent Area Speaking Competition held at Formosa, ON. There were seven elementary schools entered and the winners will now compete in the Bruce County finals. Michael placed First in the Intermediate division.

He is the son of Richard and Chyleen Lobsinger of Mildmay, ON. (House of Peter)

Gordon Lobsinger, Kitchener, ON., is proud of his new grandson, but two of his boys are new fathers. Figure that one out.

Here's how it works: Gordon's boy Paul Joseph and his wife Marg have a new baby boy named Steven Peter Lobsinger. Gordon's other son Daniel Anthony was ordained May 1 l and is now "Father" Daniel. Gordon's second cousin, Bishop Thomas Lobsinger of Whitehorse, YT, conferred the sacrament of Holy Orders upon Dan. (House of Louis)
