Updated February 12, 2001

I am looking for relatives with surname KURRIGER, who came from Baden, Germany around 1850 to Iowa. I would like to know the names of those who first came over from Germany, and of course any ancestors in Germany.
I am also looking for ancestors of:

Hogan, Susan A. Hogan, Herman M. Hogan, and Charles W. Hogan; Isaiah, Sarah, and Charles died in Missouri in 1863-64.
Isaiah's father was possibly Marmaduke HOGAN.

Samuel HUNTER who was born in 1822 in Cortland county, New York or Erie Co. PA or Steubend Co. NY, then moved to Illinois and then to Iowa. His father was possibly John HUNTER. His mother was Arminda.
