Re: Roelf and Roelfs
Copied below is a message I just posted to the Kies family list, just in case anything here sounds familiar:
I have no relation with the Kies family, but I came across a box of several dozen photos in an antique shop in Nebraska City, Nebraska, many of which were identified as Kies family members. The photographers marks indicate they were probably from Iowa. The photos appear to be mostly from the early 1900's and include, among others, the following Kies: Albert and Jane; William and Kate; Robert; Reinhard and Malinda; Arnold, etc. Married surnames of some of the Kies women included Peterson, Roelfs, Stoelk, Sinning, Osterholt, Freese, and Elias.
I did not purchase this box, so if there is anyone who is interested they should probably act quickly before they are sold or misplaced. Right now they are together in one box. The shop is the Nebraska City Antique Mall (402) 873-9805.
If you need additional info, or the shop can not locate the box (there's lots of "junque" there), let me know and I can help out.
