Back in the 70's I started a family tree search. I have some info. My father: O.L. Streit was oldest son of George Washington Streit- born Feb 22, 1888 in Elgin, Iowa moved to Sheffield, Alabama. where he lived & raised his family-died July 13, 1952. George had 9 brothers & sisters. His older sister-Mary Streit Buell was born Nov 3, 1883 in Berne, Switzerland & family came over on boat thru N.Y. Ellis Island when she was appx.6 mos. Some family versions said Mary was born on the boat coming over. I'm not sure. Anyway, their parents were Fred, Jr. born Jan 30, 1861-Berne, Switz.-died Dec. 14, 1941 Sheffield, Al. & Margaret (Stocekly or Staley) born July, 1858 Berne died Feb 25, 1931 Sheffield, Al. Fred, Jr. was son of Fred, Sr.(german spelling was Fritz or Frederic) born 1834 died Dec 12, 1892? in Iowa-distant relative said buryed in Long Cememtry 5mi NE of West Bend & Mary Keller. They had 7 children. Fred, Jr. was oldest, Crist, Sam, Rudolf, Mary, Rose & Eliza. RUDOLF called "Rudy" had 6 children: Caroline, Willie, Robert, Julius, Minnie & Mary. A Lot of Fred, Sr. family settled in Sheffield, Al. & are buried at Old Brick Presbyterian Church on Mt. Pleasant Rd. Muscle Shoals, Alabama. In N.W. corner of Alabama called tri-cities Sheffield & Muscle Shoals joined & mailing address' changed at some point. My father died in 2004 but he has two brothers & a sister still living. One in Sheffield & sister-in-law on Mt. Pleasant Rd. next to cementary. Hope this has helped. I could fax you copies of my pages of family history if you like. I live near Jacksonville, Florida.
