This is my great grandmother Bertha who's parents were John Kleist and Wilhelmina Steuck. Bertha married Carl Witte around 1890 and the two imigrated from Lagerdorf Holstein to Fulton, IL. Carl worked for the railroad, as did many of his sons. Children include -
Fred mar. Emily
Henry mar. Marie Obrien
Metha mar. Frank Larson (sons Eugene and Robert)
Andrew mar. Lepha
Albert (my grandfather)
Carl - never married, lived in the family home and cared for Bertha and youngest brother, Edward.
I have no knowledge of brothers or sisters of either Bertha or Carl.
I would appreciate and look forward to any information and contact regarding my family! thank you.
