Dear Laura, I was scanning the net today and came across your request for some family information. I am also a member of this Kleinbeck family.My grandfather was Jacob Fredrick Kleinbeck and my father was named after him. His name was Fredreick Jacob Kleinbeck, born in Iowa in 1880. So my grandmother was Jane Fivecoat Kleinbeck.I have a letter that my sister Wilma wrote to Gramdmother Kleinbeck when I was born. Sometime when you are on the web check into "Genealogy.com" and look into the information that has been posted by Duane Edwards on Fivecoat & Kleinbeck.Also my daughter Kathleen Solt have done quite a bit on getting the Kleinbeck tree together. Her e-mail address is "firstname.lastname@example.org".There are some of us here in the metro area, my son Thomas, a nephew Jeffrey Kleinbeck, his twin sister Jennifer Syrstad and sister Bobby Joe Pratt. His other sister lives in northern MN. I also hav a nephew, Arlan Kleinbeck living in Albert Lea, MN. I'm sure that there are a number of other relatives around MN but we do not get together like we used to.I also have a number of relatives living in suthern Iowa around Murry & Ossola.
My wife and I are retired and perhaps we can meet some time somewhere.My e-mail address is email@example.com.
