To K. West - My father's gg-grandfather is also Samuel Wikle. My father, Jerry Todd, is the geneologist of the family, and has spent many years following up on various family lines within the family. He has only recently been able to follow-up on this (his own) family line, as he was adopted and did not have his birth parents' names until this year. In this time, he has accumulated a lot of information, but your g-grandmother was not among those listed, thank you for listing it. I was also able to correct some approximate dates and spellings he had for Samuel and Ester. So far, with Angelina, he has only 5 of the 12 children you say Samuel and Ester had. Do you have any information on the 12? My dad is dealing with advanced cancer and has passed this on to me. If you would like to contact me to exchange information, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can set something up. Otherwise, anything you could post to this forum would be appreciated. Thanks, Karin.
