Does your history include or connect with my line?
My great-grandfather was Herman or Hermann Klaus (????-1959).I knew him but never knew my great-grandmother.
My grandfather Carl Klaus (1899-1960) married my grandmother the former Rose Katzenberger (1901-1991).
Their two children were my uncle Frederick Klaus (married to Barbara) and my father, Albert William Klaus, Sr. (1931-1989), married to Deloris Jane Nelms Massaro (b. 1935) in 1954.They divorced in 1982.
I was born in 1955, their first child.I married Nila Jean Thompson (b. 1954) in 1990.We have two sons.
Their second child is my sister, Karen Frances Klaus.She has one daughter.
Their third is my brother, Albert W. Klaus, Jr.He has two daughters from his second marraige.
I'm especially eager to know, because my great-grandfather, grandfather, and grandmother all wound up in St. Louis, where my mother, father, siblings, and I all grew up.My dad owned and operated a pharmacy in Arnold, Mo., not all that far from you, from 1964 until 1983.
