I have an Aholt Family History signed by Celeste Aholt daughter of Norbert Aholt and ? Droege. I typed it here last night but lost connection before I could post it. I did get it copied to a word file but have been unable to get the word file put back here. I also tried to scan the document to transfer it here and failed again.
Do you have any computer expertise that could help me send you this information? Maybe you already have this information.
If you're interested in this document I will retype it again and try to post it for you.
Thanks for the information on Joseph and Louisa Westhoff's children. I had 11 children listed (same as your list) but the document stated 10 but listed 11.
I have not heard anything of Matilda Brinker before. Any information about her would be appreciated. I do know my gr,gr grandmother was Elizabeth Brinker married to Frederick Westhoff, maybe Matilda was from her side of the family?
There seems to be some mystery about Fredrick Westhoff and family. Was Joseph the only child from Elizabeth and Fredrick?
Joseph was born the same year they were married, 1854. I have 2 months before they were married.
There is also a son, William Westhoff, born to Fredrick Westhoff and Sopia Ostof 5 months after Elizabeth's death. No record of marriage. Also Fredrick was dead by the time of William's birth. I've heard other stories about Fredrick but have no documentation to follow up on.
