Thank you!!!!The information you gave me earlier has led me to another generation back.
Since I now know that Diedrich Tiedgen was Christiana's brother the listing below gives me the name of his parents!Imagine giving your parent's names when you marry at 73. Do you know if there is a place for vital records in Eaton County that I could write to for an official copy of this marriage certificate and also find a death certificate for Diedrich?
Thank you again.You have been SO HELPFUL. Chris Thiessen
