I am searching for the Hempel, Ahlvers, Smith, and Gentry families.
The Hempel and Ahlvers side of the family came from Germany in the late 1800's. They settled in the mid-west, mainly in the St. Louis area.
I do not know the origin of the Smith and Gentry side of the family. My Grandparents and Great Grandparents lived in North Mississippi.
Please contact me via e-mail with any information or connections that we may have. Thank you!
