Mary, thank you so much. I had seen these entries, but wasn't sure I should trust them since Gerhardt is not included. With your kind response, I now feel more confident that this must be the family. Thank you so much. Elizabeth
Researching: MOSER and LELIEFELD families; also BROWN, UNTHANK, FRANKS and SHRUNK
Family information states that Henry and Gerhardt Leliefeld's parents were killed in a train accident and their children were all put in an orphanage except Henry who worked until he could get all his siblings out of the orphanage.
I would love to know if this story is true. The timeframe would probably have been 1880-1895. If anyone can provide information, I would be truly grateful.
Henry was born about 1875 in Iowa; Gerhardt about 1879; but I do not know who their parents were, how many children they had, what county they lived in or what happened to the other children. I would love to know. I have not been able to find any conclusive census data for them yet.
Henry and Gerhardt married sisters Louise and Katherine Moser of Clayton co/Guttenberg about 1903/04 and moved to eastern Washington State about 1907 after each couple had two children. Louise and Catherine were daughters of Lucas and Matilda Moser.
Thank you in advance for any help you might be able to provide.
