The Westfall, Nimerfroh, Gaede Surnames

Updated January 20, 2007

We are searching for the surnames: AVERY, BRITT, GAEDE,Hopster, SWANK, WESTFALL, MERGLER,
So far we have researched the Gaede line and the Hopster line back to Germany.
The Westfall Line has been the hardest to trace as there was a lot of confusion on the correct spelling.
We would be glad to hear from any one who might be seaching for the same surnames.
I am currently looking for any information on a Charles W. Westfall who was married to a Catherine Mergler. He was born in 1875 in Illinois and we know he live in these states; Indiana, New Jersey, and MI. We have found him and his family living in Newaygo Co., Garfield Township, Mi in the 1920 and again in the 1930 census. In 1920 all of his children lived at home and his mother Eloise lived with them but on the 1930 census his mother is not listed.
I am trying to find where she dies and is buried and hopefully can obtain a death certificate and get her spouses name.
My husbands family name are the Gaede's and the Swanks.
He is looking for information on a Harry Swank married to a Dagmar Jensen in the Oregon or Washington area.
