Waterpohl Family Wisconsin Re: Pohls from Iowa

My Great Great Grandmother is Catherine Waterpohl. Her sisters were Lena and Dena Waterpohl. Their mother went by the name Jane. She was from Fairchild, WI (Eau Claire County). There is no mention of her husband.
Catherine married my Great Great Grandfather Henry Reeves. I have photos.

Please see this article from Clark County Wisconsin on Jane's death which was very disturbing. http://www.usgennet.org/usa/wi/county/clark/clark/data/1/bbs20/20818.htm
Also, see this link
http://wvls.lib.wi.us/ClarkCounty/colby/history/Centennial/IndexT.htm
The links lists....
Watenpohl, Lena [Photo, 1893, page 31, columns 1 & 2] Photo taken in front of Reeves boarding house.
Watenpohl, Pete [Photo, 1893, page 31, columns 1 & 2] Photo taken in front of Reeves boarding house.

Watenpohl, Peter [Photo, page 30, columns 1 & 2] Photo of R. B. Salter saw mill.

Waterpohl, Catherine [Wedding photo, page 21, column 1]

I have a copy of this book at home. You can see this name has been misspelled multiple times over the years.

I certainly would like to see your information and I can share mine, which is very little on the Waterpohl family.
I've done most of my research on all the other lines.
I have found little on the Waterpohl family. Now, I know why it appears they changed their name. I wonder why.

Please feel free to contact me directly dawnhass@gmail.com
