I have some papers from Germany relating to the Ernst family. What I have translated them to be are the children of a Jacob Ernst giving the right to someone to act as admisistator to their father's estate in Koellkin, Switherland, dated 1937. Some of the names on the papers are John Ernst from Lexinton, Ky; Gottlieb Ernst from Louisville, Ky; Rosa Ernst Kleiner and Paul Ernst. Papers include signatures from the eight serviving children. Also in these papers is a family banknote which lists birth and death dates of the family. The father was Jacob Ernst born 1832 died 1878 and the mother Anna Maria born 1834 died 1883. Any one who might think this is their family, let me know. You are welcome to them.
