I became interested in genealogy a number of years ago but could not really pursue it until I retired. I think cemeteries are the most peaceful places on this planet and I wish that every cemetery could be preserved. That is why I take cemetery photos because I know that in some cases that may be the last vestage of the stone before it disintegrates. I am researching family lines of Bredehoeft, Bredehoft, Lange, Haesemeier, Hasemeyer, Haesemeyer, Wienberg, Hauschild, Steffens, Schelp, Hemme, Dierker, Brandt, Fricke, Oerding, Evert, Albers, Heermann, Heerman, Meyer, Oetting, Dierking, Alpers, Krause, Gieseke, Wehrs, Schroer, Dillon -- cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents and all lines up and down. My former name was Jane Bredehoeft Schroer.
RE: Leo Bredehoeft I have researched the Steffens family on ancestry so I have the names of my grandfather's brothers and sisters. Do you have any Steffens photos? I had a photo of Leo and Marie's wedding and had no idea who is was until I found the same photo on ancestry. I love those moments!
STEFFENS Jane, my name is Patti Nance, my mother was born to Leonard and Cecilia Steffens in Lexington Missouri. Leonard had a sister named Marie who married Leo Bredehoeft. I would sure like to connect with this side of my family and share what little info and photos I have.
Rehwaldt or Rehwoldt I am Sheila Dahl, looking for information on Julia Rehwoldt who married Ernest Porter. She was 19 when she gave birth to my grandmother Lucille Rehwoldt Porter in New York City. My grandmother was given up for adoption at 17 days old. On the birth certificate it states Julia Rehwoldt was born in Chicago. I saw you had a message about this name, if you can help in any way, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
