In 1870 Elizabeth Felderman is 7, in Jackson County Iowa with parents William and Sophia.

In 1880 Jackson County John "Schroder" born in Hanover,  and Elisabeth have Elvina, 1.

John Schroeder proved up  a quarter in 25, 6N 49W, Logan County Colorado,  in 1895.

John F. Schroeder is in 1900 Teller County, Colorado,  a merchant of household goods born January 1850 in Germany, married 22 years to Elizabeth A., born March 1862 in Iowa. She's had two kids, and they  have John H. Sept 1880 Iowa - a laborer in a reduction works.

 Elizabeth was the daughter of Frederick William Felderman and Sophia Rosina, per one tree.  Frederick's 1915 obituary doesn't mention Elizabeth, so she possibly had died.

John Felderman's obituary - dying in Yuma County, Colorado - per the Ancestry tree  is a brother - doesn't mention her, either.

Lena C. Schroeder claimed a quarter in 16, 6N 51W in 1918.  It's not in the BLM records, so she must have acquired this "school land"  from the state of Colorado.
