David Carl was a barber working for Wm Grimert in 1953.29
From a article about old Kirkwood: "By-the-way, did you ever get your hair cut at Dave Berg's? His barber shop was on the east side of Kirkwood Road between Jefferson and Main St. (Argonne Drive). Twenty-five cents did the job. No tip. Same for boys as for men. Plus a liberal splash of bay rum."
"One of the memorable things about the Dave Berg shop was the mustache cup and personalized shaving mug rack that reached from floor to ceiling. Dave used a big white mug into which he plunged a mop-sized brush and enough lather was slapped on the face of the helpless customer to last the length of the shave. Provided the fire whistle didn't blow."
"The real attraction about Dave's shop to us youngsters was the possibility of having that fire whistle blow while we were being shorn. Dave was 1st Asst. Chief of the Volunteer Fire Company No. 1 and no fire dared start without Dave rushing off to be first at the scene. This was a bit hard on the customers, especially those who had received the complete lathering from Dave's king-sized brush. For as soon as the first raucous notes of the steam fire whistle on the electric plant split the air, Dave dropped everything, brush, comb, scissors, razor, clippers, the bay rum bottle, and took off down the street like a scared jack rabbit towards Bopp's Livery Stable where the 'Fire Wagon' was housed."30

From a narrative written by Alvira Lochhaas Jackson: "One of the first places I remember visiting was the great aunts and uncles who lived in Maryville Illinois. This little town was near Collinsville. Aunt Annie, Aunt Lou and Uncle Christ lived together in the house where they grew up on the same road on which the Lutheran Church was located. Uncle Julius lived across the street. Next to the neat house was a barn in which Uncle Christ plied his trade of blacksmith. Many times dad's second cousins, the Goeggel boys or David Berg would also be visiting. David, who was 4 or 5 years older than I, was fun to visit with. I thought he was the most handsome and nice relative. He must have treated us as very well because I do remember wanting to know if he would be visiting also. Aunt Lou was the maiden lady housekeeper for her bachelor brother, Christ and single sister Annie. The house had a fence around it and many shrubs, also a front porch and I do believe it had a porch swing. Uncle Julius was married and lived with his wife and children across the street. We would occasionally see them but I do not remember them coming across the road every time we visited. There are those vibes again that Uncle Julius' wife was not a favorite of his sisters. Seems she was a messy housekeeper, which was something Aunt Annie didn't like. We would leave on a sunday morning and drive the 40 plus miles across the bridge and then out to Maryville. Of course the roads were all single land concrete and it took at least 2 hours to drive it. We often got stuck in a traffic back up on the bridge. I can't remember any more than 2 bridges at that time, the free bridge and the Eads bridge. I'm not sure which one carried highway 50, but it seems that we paid a dime to cross so it must have been the Eads bridge. We no doubt made the trip in our Model A sedan but we must have driven over in the Model T because Bunny was a baby when we got the Model A." (n.b. Bunny is LaVerne Rose Lochhaas, Alvira's sister.)15

Christine and Johann Christian Schoettle lived in 1854 in Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, Ohio. Residing with them were, their child, Georg, Johann's sister's, Magdalena Schoettle, Frederika Catherine Schoettle and Maria Katherine Schoettle..6 She and Johann Christian Schoettle emigrated in 1855 from Ebhausen, Kreis Calw, Baden-Württemberg, Germany. Traveling with Christine were Anne Maria Nestle, Georg Jacob Schoettle, Daniel B. Goe, Maria Katherine Schoettle and Rosina Marie Schoettle. Traveling with Christine was her child, Georg Jacob Schoettle. The location traveling to was indicated as Cleveland, Ohio.5
Christine was enumerated with her husband, Johann Christian Schoettle under the name of "Caroline" on the 1860 U. S. Census for Township 3 North, Range 8 West, Pleasant Ridge, Madison County, Illinois. She was listed as a 30-year-old white female born in Wurtenberg.2

She was listed as a 42-year-old white female born in Wurtemberg, was a houskeeper and both of her parents were foreign born.7
Christine was enumerated as the wife of Johann Christian Schoettle under the name of "Catherine Schoettle" on the 1880 U. S. Census of Collinsville Township, Pleasant Ridge, Madison County, Illinois. She was listed as a 52-year-old white female. Christine and her parents were all born in Wurtemberg. She was keeping house.8,9 Christine was the illegitimate daughter of Christine Cathrina Dürr, she was born May 1, 1884 at Pleasant Ridge, Madison County, Illinois, was the mother of an illegitimate daughter, Elenora Schoettle, who was born May 1, 1884 at Illinois.10
On Febraury 5, 1889 she received 900 gulden, 52 1/2 pfennigs ($237.70 after fees), in settlement of her father's estate after his death on September 11, 1888. The transfer was made by the General Western Agency, H. Claussenius & Company in Chicago. She received an additional transsfer dated May 17, 1889 also for 900 guilden. As there were three receipts for 900 guildine each she must have received another payment.
The Gulden was the currency of Württemberg until 1873. Until 1824, the Gulden was a unit of account and was used to denominate banknotes but was not issued as a coin. It was worth 5/12 of a Conventionsthaler and was subdivided into 50 Conventionskreuzer or 60 Kreuzer Landmünze.
The first Gulden coins were issued in 1824. The new Gulden was equal to the earlier Gulden and was subdivided into 60 Kreuzer. The rather unusual denominations of 12 and 24 Kreuzer were issued, replacing the 10 and 20 Conventionskreuzer coins.
In 1837, Baden joined the South German Monetary Union. This caused the Gulden to be reduced slightly in size, as it was now worth four sevenths of a Prussian Thaler.
The Gulden was replaced by the Mark in 1873, at a rate of 1 Mark = 35 Kreuzer.
