Eilers Missouri and Clinton Co., Illinois
Looking for information on these Eilers:
Born: Mar 23, 1898
Died: Sep 20, 1980 Shawnee, Pottawatomie Co., OK
Married: Clara Bernadine Howe
Buried: Resthaven Cemetery - Shawnee, OK
Note: Middle initial is "E" on grave but is HENRY on his WWI draft registration.
Appears to have been adopted by Herman Emming as per 1910 census.
Parents seem to be Berand Henry Eilers and Mary Catherine Nordhaus. I find a Catherine Nordhaus Eilers buried at St. Francis Catholic Cemetery - Sugar Creek, Clinton Co., Illinois.....with death date Aug 15, 1906. Cannot find a Bernard or Henry Eilers buried or his death date.
Another researcher has the parents of Bernard Henry Eilers as Franz Joseph Eilers...born 1847 in MO and Anna Adelheid KOHNEN who were supposedly married in Germantown, Clinton Co., Illinois in 1871.........however, I have not been able to locate them on the statewide marriage index nor can I find their burial place.
If anyone knows anything about this family......or if I am on the wrong track......please let me know. Thanks
