I am researching both my husband's and my family trees. My husband's line has the surnames of DAVIDSON, ABRELL, BRUCE, DRESSLER, HUNT, HARLAN, and MILLER.
His families appear to be located in Illinois (DRESSLER in Mascoutah, IL), Missouri (DAVIDSON in Rolla, Phelps Co.; ABRELL in Ray Co.; SPATZ in Lyon Co.), HUNT (DeKalb IL,); Miller (Meadville, Crawford Co. PA).
My familes are mostly situated in the Wisconsin area: REHWINKEL (Milwaukee, Milwaukee Co.), WECKER (Milwaukee, Milwaukee Co.), JANDREY (Neenah, Winnebago Co.). My grandmother's maiden surnames of Fredricka BRUETZ, Auguste ZADDAGH, Dorthea SCHROEDER all appear to have come directly from Germany. I am also looking for the surname of Charlotte SCHWANDT which is a former marriage to Hermann WECKER.
If you have any links to these family names, please email me.
