I am Isabel Reichert Vandervelde, daughter of Marvin Reichert, the natural son of Ina Weber Reichert Stainbrook. I have been doing my genealogy for quite some time and came across poor Ina, who bore my father when she was only about 12. She married Ernest Stainbrook later, when she was about 16. I have her death certificate, filled in by her mother, Anna Hilgendorf Weber Reichert. Anna had been married to Ina's father, Peter Weber, and they divorced, Anna then married Frank Reichert who acquired Ina as a sort of step-daughter, never officially adopted. Her son Marvin was passed as Anna's son, and when Anna deserted the family, Frank raised him. I thought you might to know the true blood-line of poor Ina. I have a couple of really sweet pictures of her if you want them. One is a 4 generation picture with Ina, her beautiful little baby boy, probably Ernest Jr., her mother Anna, and grandmother Maria Hilgendorf. Contact me if you want the pictures and the little data I have about the Weber connection. Isabel Reichert Vandervelde at
