Hello!I am not related to the Kuchers nor the Eckenstams, but I know several of their descendents. I spoke with Ron Kucher back in the 1970's about the old Brickyard on Anderson Island, where I live.
A Swedish/American researcher is preparing for an exhibit in Sweden later this year, and wants to include some information about the Eckenstams. Specifically, he knows, as it is mentioned in Bessie Cammon's book, that the Eckenstams stopped in Kansas for a few years [viz. Elva Eckenstam was "from Kansas."] . Question is, WHERE in Kansas?None of my contacts here seem to know.
If you have any insight to this, please let me know and I will pass it on to him.Come visit if you ever get to Anderson Island!
