Hello John,
Good to make your acquaintance! I would be most interested in your family information. I can send you what I have. I also have some pictures that you may want to see. There is also a photo of John and Elizabeth Dobmeir in the Albany History book that I have. I would be happy to scan and email it to you if you would like that as well as some of the photos.
My maternal grandmother was Marie Anna Dirkes, daughter of Frederick Dirkes who was son of Peter Dirkes and Maria Richter. Marie lived in Washburn with her "cousin" William Dirkes who was son of John and Margaret Dobmeir. He was the postmaster there for over 40 years. The John who stayed in Prussia was called Dicka John because he was a huge man. I know some of his children came to America later. Have no idea who his children were, just that they came later.

That is all for now. Thank you so much for the info on the car dealership. I had no idea where in MT they were. Write back when you have a free minute and have a wonderful day.
Karen De Groote-Johnson
