RE: Find A Grave Correction: Anna Jochum
Hi Susan,

Very nice to hear from you! Thank you for correcting my errors.

1. Jakob Ehrgott who was born: 1780. married the daughter Maria Barbara Jochum Find A Grave Memorial# 128253551

2. Anna Barbara Heckmann Find A Grave Memorial# 128254945 married Johan Jacob Jochum Find A Grave Memorial# 128254400 on 07 Feb 1769 in Waldfischbach-Burgalben, Südwestpfalz, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany

My information came from church records written in "Old German". Many years ago a relative hired a preacher there to research the family. A few years later I hired him to do some further research. This was as far back as he got. (this was done about 1998?) He was a very old man then and I doubt still living.

Anna Barbara Heckmann is the maternal grandmother of my 3rd great grand uncle

Maria Barbara Jochum is the mother-in-law of my 3rd great grand uncle

Johann Adam Hensel Jr. (Find A Grave Memorial# 128143925) is my my 3rd great grand uncle.

His sister Anna Eva "Amy" Hensel (Find A Grave Memorial# 108657195) is my 3rd great grandmother. She married Johann Jacob Laudemann (Find A Grave Memorial# 108656686)

Their son Peter Laudemann (Find A Grave Memorial# 108524183) married Anna H. Herzog (Find A Grave Memorial# 108543813)

Their daughter Margaret "Mag" Laudeman (Find A Grave Memorial# 103408319) married Phillip Heinke (Find A Grave Memorial# 103408267)

Their daughter Hattie Eleanor Heinke (Find A Grave Memorial# 103412490) married Elmer Russell Krou Sr. (Find A Grave Memorial# 103412435)

Their son Elmer Russell Krou Jr. (Find A Grave Memorial# 107291377) was my father.

And, yes I am aware is very difficult to research that area in that time, especially from the USA and you cannot read German :)

BTW - Your English writing is EXCELENT! I can speak some German but NOT read or write it.

I have been to Germany there 3 times but was not doing Genealogy research. In 1979 I hitchhiked Europe for a year (a friend live near Kiel). Then in 1989 a 10 day U-rail trip to London, Amsterdam, Paris, Munchen, Garmish, Florence, Rome, Venice, etc. and again in 1998 a 10 day U-rail trip to London, Amsterdam, Paris, Munchen, Prauge, Budapest, Rome, etc.

Look forward to hearing more from you! I have scanned copies if you would like copies of these records (I THINK)

Thank you VERY MUCH - Steve Krou -

I have Jesse and Georgie as her parents and Ralph as her sibling.
A quick check shows that Jesse was married twice and the other children are his, which would make half siblings. I need to really check further. When someone adds a number as parent etc. it shows up on the other pages.
i believe other than contacting the other people that have pages on the people in question I have no control.
Hopefully we can straighten this out.
Are you related to Bertha.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
we have 17+ inches of snow and they are predicting freezing rain and snow.

My Families in Rheinland-Pfalz area.
Once again, a few questions! You have a family of Gerbers with Memorials. Are you a relative?! What is Palatine's meaning? If you have time to email me, I'm at THANKS! I am also researching the name Claussen/Klasen/Clasen/ in these areas, as my GGFather Mathias Gerber married a Catherine by that last name.

Looking for GERBER relatives
BLESS you for being here! I live in Texas, USA. In my Gerber family books, we know some were born in Uersfeld. Some say Daun, now I see you have one born in Arzheim. Are these areas close together? Can you find any Gerber headstones there?! My GGGFather is Nikolaus Gerber & his wife, Catharena Marx Gerber. Nikolaus birth July 7, 1785 & death July 12, 1857. ANY headstone or Church info you may find would be GREATLY appreciated!

I checked other obituaries for Gary Bogenschutz family and the name Bogenschutz is the correct spelling in the United States and the phone directory.

Are you related to the Achenbach's. I added these for my girlfriend. If you are maybe I can put you in contact with her.

Schmahl notes.
Many thanks for the very appreciated facts about my mothers Schmahl family! I also have her Manz family which may have come from the same area.
