Paul, Are you aware that I'm the MN relative who contacted your brother a couple of years ago? Your great-grandfather Will and my husband's great-grandfather Dietrich were brothers, sons of Heinrich & Minnie in this search. I'm wondering if you have these names from family records or from research. The names/dates don't seem to jive with any I have, but I got mine from someone in the 3rd branch of the family, which would've been that of Will and Dietrich's older brother Heinrich, and I wasn't able to learn her source before she died. There are 3 reasons I doubt that they are our ancestors. Would you be interested in corresponding by email rather than this forum. I think we could go into more detail there.
