Pat: No definite information on Emilie's four brothers; they were older than Emilie, and one had been in four wars. She was the youngest child; her mother died when Emilie was about three; Emilie was reared by an uncle and aunt who had no children, and returned home, when grown, to a stepmother and two stepsisters. The father was often away; the brothers came home on leave "to ride their horses and hunt, and I (Emilie) had to care for the whole village." As to a village Neuendorf, there are fourteen in Pomerania alone, where she said she came from. What province, district and city area is your Quillow in? Emilie died in her 99th year and is buried beside her second husband as Emilie Adelmann near Hanover MN. Lila P.W.
