I am a descendant of Margaret Ann Meyer Buranelli sister of Josie Meyer Jock, referenced in the following obituary from 1924. They were two of 10 children born to John Meyer and Marie Gerold Meyer (commonly known as Ann) in Racine WI and moved as a family to TX in 1878. I'd like to find other descendants of Josephine Meyer Jock.
