Marilyn:I've seen your name often on the Web. I guess you're descended from Wilhelmina Ahlschwede Starke from Huntington, IN. My G-G-grandmotherwas her younger sister Friedericke, married Heinrich Lepper. I know you've worked on genealogy a long time. I have lots and lots for Friedericke and all her brothers and sisters and descendants, except I don't have a lot for Ludwig in WI.This is such a fascinating family!Have you read about the deaths in 1852 and the diary ofGeorge FRIEDRICH Conrad, their oldest brother?Write me if you wish. I'd love to hear from you.
