My great grandparents were Norman and Freida (OLDENBURG) Koch of Norwood/Antigo, WI Grandma & Grandpa Koch raised my mother Judith Freida Koch and her brother Robert (Bobby), Patricia and Beverly after the split up and divorce of their parents Darrell Koch and Irene Keough about 1940.My Grandfather Darrell sent the kids to Wisconsin from Idaho and then he moved to Alaska and remarried.I have many fond memories of trips "North" to Antigo as a small child and visiting "Grandpa Koch's".
I have just begun tracing the KOCH / OLDENBURG lines and was pleased to see your post. Would love to share information with you especially any pictures of the family you might have. Please note that Kathleen MacKay is also a descendant of Norman & Freida (Oldenburg) KOCH through their son Earl, my grandfather Darrell's brother.There were 7 children born to Norman & Freida KOCH... Darrell, Carmen, Byron, Earl, David and twins died at birth.
