RE: irene maxwell
there are many branches of Maxwells in Washington County, I do not have her obit or any information on her. there are also duplicate names in many of the branches. You can get some of the old newspapers on microfilm.

RE: Horste Family Tree
Mary Purdy was the name listed....I wonder if Mary married someone with the last name of Purdy after marrying John Horste. I'm just not sure....that's what Iva had written down and there is no explanation with that.....wish I could talk to her! Thanks. Patrick

RE: Horste Family Tree
Hi Kerry -

As for John and Mary Horste, I really don't have alot of information on them. The person who could have helped you passed away back in 1994 (Iva Horste Aley) and she was the one who provided me with all of the family history that has been placed on findagrave.com over the past year. This is what I do know.

John R. Horste - born July 20, 1831 in Bohmenkirch, Germany, was Catholic, died somewhere in Texas in his 90's....lived in Germany, Grand Tower, IL, and Grayville. His father was Joseph Zeller and mother was Josephina Heintzman....John changed his last name from Zeller to Horste when he came to the United States.
Mary's full name was Mary N. Purdy.....died in September 1887 in Grayville....also lived in Grand Tower. This information came from a Charles A. Horste who lived at 1517 Kensington Drive in Jackson, Michigan....he gave this to Iva on November 4, 1983....thus he is or maybe is deceased. Wish I could be of more help....John and Mary Horste would be my Great-Great Grandparents.....My grandfather was Derral Horste.....My mother is Sharon Horste Robinson....Thank you for letting me know about Derral Dean Horste's grave....He would have been my half uncle.........I wasn't born until 1978 so I never knew him......Let me know if you find anymore information......Are you related to me or are you working on a family tree for someone else? Thanks! Patrick

John and Mary Horste
The information I provided to you was actually given to me by Iva Horste Aley. Iva was the true historical buff of the Horste family. Unfortunately, she died in 1994 and would be over 100 years of age today if she was alive. I wish she was alive because she could answer many of the questions you and I have! Patrick

RE: Albert HOrste 1870-1951
Kerry,

I've got that John R. Horste's wife was Mary N. Purdy (she was born somewhere in Ohio and died on Sept. 1887 in Grayville, Illinois) and lived at one time or another in Grand Tower, Illinois and Grayville, Illinois. As for Hattie, I have that she lived in Harrisburg, Illinois but was not in the 1910 Census. I can also tell you that John R. Horste was born on July 20, 1831 in Bohmenkirch, Germany and was a Catholic. He died somewhere in Texas.....he lived to be in his 90's.......Also, John r. Horste changed his hamed from Ignatz Zeller to John Horste when he came to the United States. Wish I could be of more help but this is all I have now. If you can find out any information, please let me know......would love to have this info to add to the Horste family tree I've been working on for years along with other family members! Patrick

Hi Kerry -

I'll go through some of my files and see what I can find. I would love to find pictures of the final resting places of John and Mary Purdy Horste. John and Mary are my great-great grandparents! Patrick

RE: Horste
Hi Kerry -

I'll look through my files and see if I can find anything. I have information on John Redmond Horste but not sure about the other names. I know they have to be related as there was only one Horste family that I can find.

I'll be in touch soon!

Patrick
