Hello.My Phillippine came from Alouse Loraine area. She immigrated to USA in 1885 (taken from the 1920 Illinois Census). She married Theodore Bartelle (the way it is spelled on his naturalization paper) in Kahoka, Mo. I got her last name from Theodore's obit. The Bartelle name may have been spelled Bartel at first, then Bartelle, and later shortened again to Bartell, then to Bartel.She was born Jan. 24, 1863.I hope we have a connection here....please reply.
