I am sooooo happy to hear from you! I thought too much time had passed. It appears that we are 3rd cousins! According to my research, William and Ann had 8 children; James,Eveline (your great-great grandmother), William, Alonzo (my great-great grandfather), Gertrude, Alice, Julius and Emma. Alonzo's son, William, my great-grandfather lost his wife when she was just 26 years old. He was left with 3 small children all under 10 years old. He was unable to care for them and they went from family member to family member and my grandmother never saw him again. Do you have any info about William Alonzo Petsch, born about 1883? I am in Ohio. Where are you?
