Thank you!
Sylvia,

Thank you for the Drewel and Freidrich Knehans transfers. Now I have to get busy and link and connect up what I can!

Your profile says you were born in Nebraska and raised in Missouri, and that made me very curious.

Were you born in Lancaster County, or near there in Nebraska?

My grandparents (Frank Kleager and Sophie Drewel), plus Sophie's parents (Louis Henry Drewel and Wilhelmina Knehans), plus two of Frank's brothers (Edward Drewel married to Jenny Phillips), (Joseph Kleager married to Halle Ellen Renick, then Josephine Jost) all moved from Franklin County, Missouri to Lancaster County, Nebraska in the space of a few years around 1918.

I'm curious if your family was part of that migration of friends and family, and then headed back to Missouri?

Thanks again for your good genealogy work!!

Another transfer request
Hi again Sylvia,

And thanks again for all the photos you have added.

May I also request to have transferred F. W. Drewel (#33786619)?

He is another great great grandfather of mine, and I am learning I can't link anyone but a child if I am not the manager. I know quite a bit about this fellow and could flesh out the post if that was ok with you.

Thanks, Clytee Gold

Transfer Request
Hi Sylvia,

Thank you for all the photos you have added to this wonderful site. I really appreciate your hard work.

My name is Clytee Kleager Gold, and I was wondering if you could transfer to me, if you were willing, Friedrich W Knehans (1825-1883) and Charlotte C. W. Drewel (1843-1920).

They are my great great grandparents, and I would like to link them to some of their family, and add a little biography of what I know about them.

Their daughter, Wilhelmina "Minnie" Knehans married Louis Henry Drewel, they had 9 children including my grandmother, Ella (Eleanor) Elisabeth Sophia Drewel. Sophie Drewel married Frank August Kleager, and had 5 boys including my father, Clyde Louis Kleager.

If you wouldn't mind transferring, I would appreciate it.

Thank you, Clytee Gold

St Peter's Cemetery-Gasconade County
I see there is a request for Ann Holschuh (probably misspelled, I can't see the request from here). I understand she was married to Henry William Kramme
but that may not be true. I'm following up on it now. His first wife was Sarah A. Thomas and she died the year after they were married. Than I thought he married Anna and had children. I found his death record and the info was given by Edw. Kramme, probably a son, however he had no info on a spouse for Henry. Said he didn't know if he was married, so it might have been that Edw. was a nephew. Edward was his son. I found him in family trees posted on Ancestry.

Wrong Cemetery?
There is no cemetery called North Shore in St Joseph Michigan. It is located in Hagar Shores. I have the picture of this person and he was located in Hagar Shores. Please correct the location and then I will upload the picture
