RE: Bada Rupe
Hi Kathy:

Thank you for your quick reply.

My Uncle Bader's son with his first wife, my Aunt Toni, is Maxin Bryon Rupe. Maxin was born on February 23, 1951 and was only a few months old when my aunt Toni died in a car crash in Casablanca, Morocco on September 23, 1951.

I have never met my cousin Maxin and would like to know about him.

I have traced Maxin online to 3608 Lake Drive, Taylorville, Il. Do you live close to Maxin or have you ever met him? If so, please tell me about him and provide his email address so I can email him.

Thank you again for your help.

Bada Rupe
Hello Kathy:

Please let me know how you are related to Bader Rupe since you put him on Find A Grave.

Bader is my uncle since his first wife was my aunt Antoinette Badia.

Do you have any information on my cousin Maxim Rupe? If so, please provide any details you may have. Thank you for your help.

You are welcome, Kathy. Glad to help. I'm at the State Library once a week if you need an obit.

RE: Elmer T Humphrey
Hi Kathy, I had been hunting for the first name of her stepfather "Arnold", rather a funny story has emerged, His first wife was Theresa Katheryne Weilhammer, her brother Thomas D Weilhammer married Sophia Grethlein, she is my great Aunt,my grandfather Fredrick Grethlein oldest sister. Weilhammer Plumbing is still run out of 1819 Shelby St. Indy, The house that our great grandfather Ernest Grethlein built in 1893. I'm sorry she feels the way she does. I remember her mother visiting at 1819 Shelby St when visiting in the 50's Tante Anna I knew was very sweet to me. Please tell my cousin I'm sorry she's ill. was hoping she'd share photos with me. Please give her my best wishes. Anything I can do, please let me know. Stacy

RE: Kerrs
There is a Walter William Kerr in Rose Hill who died at the age of 100 in 1985.
In the same plot there is a Virginia Tucker who died at 68 in 1988 - so she is of an age that she could be a child of his.....Let me know if this helps.

RE: Elmer T Humphrey
Kathy I can name everyone in the family photo. Anna'a parents are Ernest Grethlein, abt 1866 Germany. I haven't gotten a copy of his obit yet from the library in Indy. It may name his parents. Her mother was Kunniguda Wich, also of Germany, her parents or if u have a membership to ancestry just let me know. Her parents are Andrus Wich abt 1822 and Barbara Bonzel/ and 3 other spellings I haven't figured out yet. Barbara is buried in Crown Hill. I haven't located a buriel spot for him yet. I have a photo of Andrus and also a few of Kunniguda. I can send u an invite to my ancestry tree if it would help you out? Just email with a addy or if you have membership to ancestry your ID name. email me at I'll send out invite for you all photos I have of the family are on the tree. Even a few I'm not sure about. All are listed as Ernst Grethlein parents.
Thanks Stacy
