Karen; I'm Warren, I live in Colorado but grew up in Oakford, IN. For the past few weeks I have been helping my cousin Sandra (Krise) Warner. We have been trying to establish our family tree back beyond Abel Krise (1813-1891). Last week we found the missing link which ties us to Johan Hendrick (or Henrich) Krise (or Kryss, or Kreiss) who came to this country from Nurenberg, GR prior to 1750. Johan's 7th (of 11) child was Daniel. Daniel married Hannah Spiker and had 8 children. Abel was the fourth. Abel had 4 sons (William, Bud(?-Abel jr), Leonard and Ben. Sandy and I decended from Leonard. My best guess is you decended from Bud who we think is Abel Jr. Now that we have made the connection we have a great deal of info which you can have.
