I am researching the John Adam STRATMANN line.I have been searching for his sister Maria STRATMANN TWIEHAUS.It appears that we are searching the same line.
John Adam STRATMANN b. 1841 in Femme Osage St. Charles, Mo. this matches your information.I know of Maria as being his sister, as I figure at about the age of 7 he lived with Henry W. TWIEHAUS and wife, Maria in St. Louis.His parents died in the cholera epidemic of 1848, 49, or 50.I never been able to establish that date.
After about 10 years of searching (off and on) I am delighted to find a match in surnames.I look forward with anticipation to your reply.
