Dear Ewald, Thanks for your kind reference to the Elli Wise compilation dated 28 Jan 2002.I was not aware of this Pixel file.I did much of my research before 2002 and will have to jump in again and get busy.New information keeps coming.
Thanks for this confirmation that my great-great grandmother Katherine Kallis does indeed belong to the family of Andreas Kallis and Luise Kuck.I was recently traveling to NE Oregon where she lived her final days among the fruit orchards and wheat fields of Touchet, Washington.
I had written for a copy of her death certificate and was very disappointed by the lack of information and incorrect entries listed by her son, Ludwig Aichele, Jr.He had listed her birth date as August 28, 1860 and the birth place as "Carlos..." Russia.He listed "unknown" for her maiden name.Sigh.
On her petition for naturalization on September 30, 1907, Katherine listed her birth date as August 27, 1865, but does not list her parents.Her grave marker in the Mt. Hope Cemetery (Seventh Day Adventist) in College Place, Walla Walla Co., Washington lists her birth year correctly as 1865.She died in the Walla Walla General Hospital four days after she had an appendectomy.
I would enjoy corresponding with you on our specific family information.Please contact me at CoriHoag@ msn.comThanks, Corolla (Cori) Hoag
