1885 Collegeville, Stearns, MN Michael Braü living with Stallbaum, wife and children are listed in next household Crezenzia, Michael, Jr., John, Maria, emil, Antonia, George, Frank, Joseph. brother Wenzel doesn't appear on this one (at least the couple pages I checked)
1895 Collegeville, Stearns, MN Michael Breaw (his wife and children are listed on the 1895 Wadena census. But there are some Kriegel's listed here that Michael is living with.

I haven't found Michael yet on the 1900 census, but did locate him on the 1910 census (Michael Brei) and found a possible death record for him in 1915 in Stearns County (Michael Breau)
