"The Great Cyclone of 1896 and Its Aftermath: Strudells"
James David Strudell- Apr 1997
"Fritz Strudel, my great grandfather, vanished during the Great Cyclone. The story, as recounted by Arthur Proetz in 'This Was St Louis' is that Fritz was blown off the Eads Bridge into the river...He started home from the East Side and was never seen again.' Great Grandma Anna Marie (Blaetz) Strudell, his widow, thereafter was terrified during big thunderstorms. Great aunt Irene Georgia (Strudell) Crane, one of the children, said in later years that there was some neighbor lady who claimed Fritz had disappeared by running off with another woman; nobody in the family, particularly Great Grandma Strudell, gave the story any credence...[see Anna Marie Blaetz]"
