Re: searching for members of family
My husband Richard is from Blair and is a descendent of the Rathmann family. I have 4 children listed for Gustav Adolph Rathmann: Norman K., William George (Jurgen), Curtis, and Marguerite.I don't know about another sister. I have no info on your father or Marguerite except as of 1997 Marguerite still resided in Blair. Your father's father, Gustav, is the second youngest of ten children, Gustav's father parents were Jurgen (George) Detlef Rathmann and Maria Christina Rease (or Reese). My husband descends from an older brother of Gustav- August Adolph Rathmann. Rich's grandmother, whose mother was a Rathmann, still resides in Blair as well. Let me know if I can be of more help.
