My 2nd cousin who shared the information must have the spelling incorrect in her records. Here's what I have.
Children of John Henry Meason & Marie Antionette Stranchan: 5. John "Jack" Ritzema b. May 10, 1874 Shelby Co., Mo. m. Mary Iva Nickeld Oct. 22, 1900 Crowell, Foard, Tx
I'd love to see the photo you mentioned and hear more about your side of our family. I'm your gg grandfather John Henry Meason's (b.1843) brother's Samuel David Meason's decendant. Whew, thats a mouthful.
I'll fix that spelling in my own records, and add you to it.
