I am married to Dorothy Jane nee Fritz Wellner, we both came from a little town of Ute, Iowa. Our family consisted of three girls and two boys, all of whom are married, except the oldest girl. We have eight grandchildren from nineteen to twelve years old.
My Grandfather and Grandmother and family of four, three boys and l girl came from Germany in the 1800s, I am trying to determine where Grandfather and Grandmother were married and if perhaps I still have distant relation in Germany.
My father and mother had a family of 12 children one boy died a childbirth. There were 5 boys and 7 girls, 5 girls still living and only one boy, that is myself.
All live in the state of Iowa, except myself and family, we live in the state of Texas
