This is for anyone researching any of my ancestors. Hopefully we can all share our information and get much further in our searches. :)
The Trottman side is Lester Trottman and Maybelle Phelps branches. The Meyer side is Bernard Meyer and Elizabeth Sietsema branches.
If anyone can help with the Meyer, Trottman, and Merrill branches, I would be very appreciative.
I have only found the father of Lester, Joseph Trottman, and can go no further there. I have a LOT on Blanche Lampson, Lester's mother.
I have Bernard Meyer's grand parents on his father's side and have not found anyting else there. They are Fred Meyer and Henrietta Schmidt. I can find nothing on Bernard's mother, Edith Haner, except her father and a little bit on her mother.
For the Merrill family, I have found only a sister to Mary Lucretia Merrill, who's name is Dorthea Merrill. Dorthea was living with Mary and Oldig Sietsema when the 1930 census took place.
