FRED: Go to Google and enter +stollen +recipes
These two keywords will give you other recipes to compare with your recipe.
I got 12,400 hits. You have to consider how many loaves and what size
they will be.
Each family that came to the USA brought their recipes from the "old" country.
They then adjusted them to the supplies that were available in their new home.
Hope this helps..........Norm

To our subscribers;
We decided a note should be made about
asking for changes to names in data
we have online.
We have in the past made a few changes per
request for typos.
We stated before, errors in spelling were made
by folks many years ago making the data.
Example my name spelled Dethlefsen was
spelled Dethlefson. This error was common
by census takers spelling names ending in sen.
The many pages of data we have online
are guide lines. We are recommending you do
further research for names you feel are misspelled.
As volunteers all of us have and will continue
to get as much data online and do it as accurately
This takes much time to change a name or for the
many request we get. This can be time consuming for
our programmer, myself and other volunteers.
Therefore, please do not ask for changes.
I would like to know the names of the parents of John McDonnell, who died in Crawford County in June 1913. It is possible that he was the brother of my great grandfather, Michael, who sometimes interchangeably used the names McDonnell and McDonald. I have been unable to determine the names of Michael's parents and I am hopeful that someone can provide me with the names of John's parents. Michael's wife's name was Katherine Corcoran.
The information that I have about Michael regarding his being born in County Mayo Ireland, coming to the US in 1852, living in Madison, Indiana or Wisconsin before moving to Clinton County Iowa and then to Crawford County appears to be the same as that regarding John. However, Michael didn't stay in Crawford County but moved to Boone County Nebraska sometime after 1880.
Michael's brother, Anthony, died in Clinton County and his widow, Mary, and children, traveled to Crawford County. One of the daughters married a Thomas Fitzgibbons.
Any information regarding any of the above people would be greatly appreciated.
