Hello Barbara Yes, I do have a scanner and already have the picture of Claus and Anna scanned> I will be glad to send it to you. I sent for a copy of John Erps and Peter Erps naturalization records and they also sent me some of C. John Erp. Is this the Great Great grandfather of your husband you mentioned. My great grandpa John Erps is the brother to Peter and Julius and Johanna but he didn't arrive in the US til 1881. Is there any way you can send me a copy of the census. I didn't know that Claus and them lived in Illinois so you have been a big help. I will send you what I have on C. John Erp if you dont already have it. I can scan it or send it snail mail. I have found out that I can make better copies and send them snail mail and they come out much better. I have wondered if there was a link between C John Erp and my relation. Hopefully we can find out sometime but like you said at least they were friends. Hope to hear from you soon. My email address is email@example.com.
