Re: Kurrasch Family in Kankakee IL
Hi - Henry Kurrasch from Hudson was my 3rd Great-grandfather. This is all the information I have, and cannot go back any further until tonight. Other than your post, I just discovered Charles & Johanna Kurrasch - they are the parents of Henry, August, Carl, Wilhelmina...correct? Henry's daughter, Bertha, and her son, Jessie - stayed in Kankakee when the family moved up north to Wisconsin. I drove out to Kankakee from Minnesota to visit a man who had some of Jessie's things. Included were two boxes of glass photo plates of family, which until today, I had no idea who they were. I'm sure they must be the Kurrasch family.Please let me know of any information you have, including pictures of the Kurrasch family, if any! I look forward to hearing from you!
