My Ggrandmother was a Loutzenhizer, and I believe she was probably born in Pike Co., Illinois. ( I am not positive though). She married John Payton. I know of 4 children: Charles who lived in Kansas City, ( do not know if it was Missouri or Kansas, and a brother named John (I think) who lived in California, and then of course my Grandmother Stella who also had a brother she called Gib, and I assume that it must stand for Gilbert. I have heard I believe that he lived in Oklahomna. They lived right on the border of Pike Co., Missouri and she might have been born there. I do not know. I can not even think of her name. I guess I always thought my mother would fill me in when the time came to remember as she had a mind out of this world for details. Then she was stricken with Alzheimers. Can anyone help me out here? My grandmother Stella married James Grimsley. 10 children lived from this union. 4 did not make it.
I have a hump back trunk that they said had come via the wagon train. Everyone seemed to remember that they had heard one of my Grandfather's in this family had been a Wagon Train Master. I have no proof of anything. Thelma Blacketer McGraw.
I lived at Hahn AFB back in the 80's and shopped frequently in the town Sohern. I had no idea that I was related to anyone. My German today is awful. I have not used it for 25 years. I came back in 1982. Thelma McGraw
