My 4th great grandparents were John Joseph Alflen and Catherine Schneider who settled in Salem Township, Allegan Co., Michigan.
John Joseph Alflen was born May 15, 1834 in Coblenz, Germany. Catherine Schneider was born January 19, 1839 in Borussia, Germany. The couple married on November 6, 1861 in Sheffield, Ohio. They had four daughters: Elizabeth "Lizzie" b. abt 1861, Gertrude b. 1862, Mary b. 1863 and Margaret b. 1866.
My 3rd great grandmother is Gertrude Alflen Weber.I believe the other sisters probably married in Allegan Co., MI.I would be interested in hearing from any descendants of this family.Thanks.
