RE: Marie Anna Horstman Vorderstrasse
Good question, I really don't know where I got that maiden name. I'm guessing that another Find a Grave member sent it to me as an edit.

I checked the photos I have of both her stone and the cemetery directory. The directory does not give a maiden name, but her stone does say in German "born Rohe, wife of William Vorderstrasse"

I will correct her maiden name on here, thanks for letting me know

RE: Lloyd C Krintz
Hi, Bob-

I am just re-reading my Find-A-Gravemessages and one from you was questioning whether Lloyd C Krintz was a Private or Corporal. You said the only reference to him was as a "T-5". I looked this up and this stands for "Tech-5" also known as "Tech-Corporal". It was a designation for the Corporal rank in the US Army during WW II.

RE: Rebecca Kern, another thought
Hi Bob, Sorry I didn't realize you had left messages for me. My email is i don't think the Kern histories that are written are out publicly, although I believe one written in 1970 is in the Allen County (Fort Wayne) IN library. There are several things about samuel Kern, but I don't recall about buying or selling from Pittmann. Let's exchange phone #s by email and then we can share gedcoms or other things.

RE: George Osner
No Bob, I did not want to link George to parents, just wanted to link George Osner to his wife, Susan.
