Thanks for the details, Randy!As Grube descendents, I think we're related to most of Auburndale somehow!
I'm not sure who Sophia Zachow's parents were.I've been searching around awhile, and no one on the forum seems to know. I'm thinking of writing the city hall of the city she was born in to see if there are any records of her anywhere. Otherwise, I will check in with my cousin who keeps the family records - I'm pretty sure we both ran into dead ends with her, but she may have found something in the few years since we've discussed Sophia.I'll keep you posted.
In the meantime, do you have any interesting family stories?I'm always eager to hear about the old family!
