Re: Preher's of KY & MS
Thank you for your response-this is what I have on PREHER:
Henry PREHER b. 31 Jul 1836 in Darmstadt, Germany, d. 12 Jun 1909 Owensboro, Daviess, KY, m.Linna WETZEL(b. 13 Apr 1850, Breslawzulg, Germany,d. 10 Jul 1934 St.Louis,
St.Louis, MO.) They had daughter Mary Josephine PREHER, b. 17 Oct 1878 Hirshburg, Germany, d. 22 Nov 1947 St.Petersburg, Pinellas, FL. She m. Guy Calvert OELZE 24 Apr 1901 in Vanderbargh County?.
I had a correspondence from Carol Lynn CHRISTEN-she wrote:
The OELZE and PREHER families were from Evansville, IN.The PREHER originated from Dormstadt, Germany, wo immegrated to America to find work and were stone carvers on the courthouse in Evansville.The OELZE family originated from Brunswick, Germany.
Do you have anything more on the Henry PREHER b. 1836 mentioned above? Do you have the parents of your Adam Charles PREHER?Maybe we can make a connection here somewhere.Will be anxious to hear from you.
Thank you again-Susan
