I have been actively researching my family as well as that of my children since 1987. As with most Genealogical research, this is a "work in progress". If you see names & dates that do not match with your records, please contact me and we can go over my sources as well as your sources.
This certainly has not been my project alone. I am much indebted to Martha Gamble BORDERS & Martha Heskett CONGER for their many years of research. I am also grateful for information from Robert S. LINGO, Karen MULLIAN, Joyce Spice STAFFORD & my two sisters, Carol FRANK & Jan STEINLEITNER, for their many hours invested examining German Church records on microfilm. I would also like to thank James S. & wife, Nancy P. MOSER, Suzy R. HINRICHS, D.L. PARKS, Carol P. CHO, Pat H. HENDERSON for their contributions as well as many other dedicated researchers I have met along the way.
