Thanks for your reply. That is one of the things on my "to do" list. I already have the cemetery listing for Carl and also his marriage record which names his parents. But all I have are names. I posted to this board hoping to find a connection to his sister, Louise, and possibly more family info. Carl's branch (and therefore mine as well) is very small with no one left to ask questions so I keep trying every angle I can think of to find out more.
