I am searching for Ludwig Brockschmidt, birth/death dates unknown.My Grandmother told me he came to IL in 1880 and other records indicate he was born in New York, but not sure this is accurate.However, his son Friedrich S. B, born Okawville 1857, died Centralia 1938 was my ancestor.He was married to Caroline Brink, born 1861 Nashville IL, died Centralia 1919.The family stayed in the Centralia area after that. I found a Ludwig Brockschmidt buried at the Ebenezer Lutheran cemetery.I was there many years ago and found the cemetery at that time but can't really tell you where it is, on a back road in the area around Nashville, Okawville.I have many records from Venedy that I obtained probably 10 yrs ago when I visited there. One is the Washington County 150 year Centennial yearbook that references many Brockschmidts in the area.Can't seem to get a connection to the Venedy Brockschmidts just yet. Any help you can provide would be helpful. Thanks.
