I have emailed to Rob but am very interested in corresponding about Kunkel family - to support Kalis being last name I found a maiden name on child birth cert of Oswald, with info being given presumably by Oswald/Oscar, listing his mother's maiden name being Mathilde Collis.Also Bertha, sister who came over the Karl and Natalie married Gus Muhlenhaupt and first child was named Gus Adoph Hermann Muhlehaupt, a naming tradition that may have used father's names for first born - (just speculation here but why would Mathlilde Collis show up at all). hope to hear back from you all - Norm and Art Kunkel, both in their 80s are sure Karl (their g-pa), Oswald/Oscar and Robert are all brothers from Bellwood as they remember growing up. Here is a list of the family as I I know: Adolph/Adolf ?
