Sorry about taking so long in getting back with you. You are right we very well could be second cousins twice removed. My sister & I are attempting to compile the family history. Only one problem, Federick, Carl, Charles, Anna, Karl, Florence, Louise..are very common. We found two naturilzation papers for Frederick Pleger. One was about 21 years from the Empire of Germany & the other was from Prussia. So it's a bit challenging trying to figure out who's who at times. Ok, are we related by Frederick, my Great Great Grandfather's bother Frederick Pleger, Frederick's son Frederick, or my Great Great Grandfather's (Carl, Charles, Karl, Karle) son Frederick ( I think he had a son Frederick too.) I do know that there is part of my Great Great Grandfather's neices or nephews that moved to Erie. So that's why I think it's through the brother that we are related. That's the only thing about family moving away from each other..we loose some of our history. Do you know if on your side of the family what states & areas that our relatives moved to? My sister & I are finding out that Pleger's tend to have itchy feet. :) We'd like to compile a complete family book of relatives of Carl, Florence, & Frederick. Plus, as far back as we can find. Also, with pictures & documents if we can. I think it would be great to meet relatives & share information. No need to worry about Oil Creek raising, there is a flood control device that has helped emencely. I have heard of Rockmere, my grandpa used to talk about it some. Look forward to hearing from you.
