Joe, I do not have a Franz Koehmstedt in my notes. I do have a Martin Koehmstedt (but NO birth or death dates).I also have a Lorenz Koehmstedt who was born or baptised in 1780 and who died in 1834.
I also have Maria Dorothea Koehmstedt (aka KALMSTEAD) who was born or baptised in 1808, married in 1832 in "Germany" and who died in 1894 in Deer Lodge, Montana.All these names (and more) are listed in a "family registry" for the BRAND family.I am trying to find the name of Maria's husband.(She married a BRAND).
Joe, we must be distantly related, because I also have a lot of SCHARF names in my database!
It is only coincidence that my name is also Charlene!Please email me at Odysseyeng@aol.com. Best regards, Charlene
