Hi all you Schloes
Just thought I would start up this board for the Schloes out there.
My ggfather was Adolf Friedrich Schloe, born in Friedrichskoog, Germany, one of 9 children of Johann Adolf Schloe and Katharina Maria Böthführ. Three of the siblings eventually ended up in the US: Adolf (Iowa), older brother John Peter (South Dakota), and youngest sister Emma wife of M. H. Friedrich Koch (Georgia).
I have much of the tree for the two brothers as well as a couple of gens back from their father. Emma had two daughters, Kaethe and Lotte. As far as I can tell, they never married. Last Christmas cards received from Kaethe placed her in Miami, Florida and Merritt Island, Florida.
If anyone has information about any of the descendants or ancestors of the various Schloe siblings, either in the US or in Germany, I would welcome your contact.
