Hi, I have learned a little bit and will pass it on to see if it connects with anyone else. I found Albert arends's obit here in Oregon. His first wife was Eva Miller born in Iowa in 1897 Her father's name was Elmer Miller born in Nebraska and mother's maiden name was De Graff. Albert had three brothers still alive in 1963. There names are Amos, Richard, and John. One sister Clara [Arends] Baxter all of Nebraska. Albert's father's name was John and there I stop as there are alot of John Arends from that time frame if this connects to anyone Please let me know I'm now at a brick wall.
