I am looking for information on the Peter Kreis family who lived in Bloomington, McLean, IL from 1880. The family appears in the 1900 IL census.
Peter states that he was born in Germany btw 1843-1848. He married a Mary _______in Germany in 1866. They had 6 children, all of whom were born in IL. Otto and Henry L. were the only two of the children who married. The others (Edward, Emma, Ida, and Charles)lived together in adulthood.
Otto and his wife Julia lived in Peoria, Peoria, IL from 1910 through the 1940s and had no children. He died in 1942.
I would like to find out where in Germany Peter Kries came from. I believe that it might be somewhere in Prussia as my Louis Kreis (whom I believe may be related to Peter) also came from Prussia.
