|I enjoy the historical research and look forward to helping others by sharing photos and information. I work as an archival research assistant at our county archival library.|
I am researching the following surnames for my family: Bloemker, Moeller, Weber, Haase, Junker, Greear/Grear/Greer, Suhre, Noblitt, Osterman, Ludvickson, and Craig
I am particularly interested in any information on Andrew Jackson Hamel, the person Hamel, Illinois was named after. I know he lived in Hamel until 1873 and he died in October 1876, but I do not know where.

|Brenda Simms||RE: Craig/Grear/Canfield|
Thank-you so much!
Hi. I am a direct descendant of Elijah Canfield and his 2nd wife Sarah Maria Griggs. Elijah married Nancy Elizabeth Grear nee Craig in Montgomery County, Illinois in 1874. I have found out yesterday when Nancy died and that she is buried in Craig Cemetery. Do you know when Elijah Canfield died and where he is buried? He is alive and with Nancy in the 1880 census for Audubon, Montgomery, Illinois. Thanks for anything you can share. Brenda firstname.lastname@example.org
|Sharon B.||RE: Tolle/Toelle Family|
Thank you for writing! My husband's paternal line was originally from the Biermann's of Hanover, Germany. Little was known of this branch of the family until I began researching shortly before my mother-in-law had passed away.
Several members of his Biermann family immigrated from Hanover, to the U.S., prior to 1850. Most had settled in St. Louis, Missouri. According to what I had been told, my husband's great-grandfather had been born in St. Louis, in 1856, and his father (Heinrich Wilhelm) had been born about 1829, in Hanover. This information has been researched and documented.
However, his direct connection to Henry G. and Louise Biermann, has yet to be confirmed, even though research is on-going. As you may know, Pauline Louise Iselle and Henry G. Biermann were married on the 15th of November 1855, and her parents George and Mary "Tolle", were reported to have been both born in Kentucky. They were parents of 6 children! Believe they had resided in Rushville, Schuyler, Co., Illinois, at one time.
Since a direct connection has not yet been established and documented between the Biermann's you are searching for and my husband's family, you may want to continue to try and locate Pauline Louise Iselle's surviving descendants.
Gustav H. Biermann, their son had died in 1931, in St. Louis County, but was survived by his wife Clare. Gustav was buried in New Bethlehem Cempetery, in St. Louis, on April 02, 1931. His death certificate stated that his mother was indeed Louise "Toelle"! In the meantime, I'm continuing to research for the family's Hanover connection!
Thanks again for writing, and am hoping you will be able to reunite that long, lost song book with the direct descendants of it's original owner!
Best Wishes Always,

I'm not related to anyone by that name so transferred the memorials I had made to you so you can do as you please with them. I did not do any linking before transfering. Perhaps you would be able to do that? CHeers.

oh, it's my pleasure, LaVerne! Take care - Gwen
Thank you for doing something that doesn't involve your family. I live so far away in WA state and don't have a lot of opportunity to see things up close and personal.
Again thank you from my family and me,
