|My name is Brandy J. Hurtado, daughter of Amy L. Wiedemer.I have been working on my family tree for about 4 years.In that short amount of time I feel now that I have enough to show to family and friends.|

We think they must have lived in Iowa for a time because Frank was born there according to their records.They came to Sharon, Wisconsin about 1876.Rented a farm, then bought the homestead February 21st, 1881.It was 60A for $2,400.
Grandma sold the farm to Will October 31st, 1930.They are buried in the North Sharon Cemetary in Sharon, Wisconsin, which is about a mile from the farm.Most of Frank's, Will's, and Pete's families are buried there along with Alice.
