Thanks for the information regarding William's military record. He's my 2nd gr grandfather and I'm embarrassed to say I had originally forgotten to put that information on his memorial! I'm hoping to go back to Albion this summer and get a better picture to add to his memorial.

RE: jungklaus
Yes, I have Christopher Jungklaus' baptismal record with the wax stamp being the Church of Marne. I had several of his letters translated as well as the baptismal paper. His last name was spelled with a k on the baptismal paper and also the same for his Father's name. I understand that the c was changed to a k by some families, as they believed there was an illegitimate line in the Jungclaus family. I found more information on other family members by having 19 letters translated to English. Thank goodness my Grandmother saved much of that stuff. Carol
