My GGGgrandparents were Joseph Spies and Gertrude Kasel. They lived in Gross Point, IL. They attended St. Joseph Church in Wilmette, IL. I have found another Spies family that attended St. Joseph church also. There was an Anna Spies who married John Schaefer and Maria Spies who married Joseph Bleser. I think they are children of John Mathias Spies who also lived in Gross Point, Illinois. I think these two families might be related but have no way to know for sure. If anyone has any information on either of these two families, I would greatly appreciate any help.
