Hi Patricia, It looked like you had some information for Linda on her BOOK family in MO. I was hoping, since there are so few BOOKs in the area, that you may have some information on my family. We have really had trouble getting any further on this line.
Here is some basic information on my family: (please note there are more siblings, but I do not have access to the papers right now): ENGELBERT BOOK b.1/24/1839 d.2/7/1916 m. to ANNA THEKLA TOBIN b.8/6/1850 d. 5/9/1933. Children: ANNA MARIE BOOK b.4/10/1882 m. 11/24/1903 to SAMUEL E. GUTZMANN b.11/20/1885 BARNEY BOOK (nickname only known) m. ETTA__. Engelbert Book was a dairyman in St. Louis, MO. in 1890 and in the 1870 St. Louis census he lists his place of birth as Hanover. Please let me know if anything sounds right to you. Thank you for your time! Wendy
