Wow! I think we are finally getting this picture together!!Have you checked out the Wiese message board on Ancestry.com.Betty Greenwood has several pieces of info on our family and I have been corresponding with her also.I lacked the info about the wives of William Wiese, so this is a real breakthrough for me.It appears the wives were sisters, is that correct? I had William's middle initial as H. as opposed to your W.I don't know where at the moment my info came from.Betty refers to him as William II.Here is the census info she gave me:
1860 Census Clinton Co., IL

Notice in the 1880 census that Rudolph is listed as NR in the relationship column to Christian and Sophia.Also, Christian and Sophia did not m. until 1875 (I have the St. Louis recording of the marriage) and their first three children were b. before 1875.Don't know how to resolve this. Any ideas?
Have you seen the USGenweb Clinon Co, IL site?It has the cemetery's tombstone recordings listed for Breese.Excellent site!!Bye the way, looks like we have just found several new cousins!
