Were these folks Protestant or Catholic? And do you know if they had any
connections to families named Esch or Kurk? There were a lot of families
from Schale, Westfalen who immigrated, & I know there were Kurk & Esch folks
at Quincy. The Landwehr folks from Schale settled in northern Illinois &
southern Michigan, but I think we have some that aren't accounted for. Also,
a few Landwehrs from Schale went to other towns in Westfalen or Hannover, or
even Holland, & some may have immigrated from those places.

I'm trying to decide if this Henry is part of my Landwehrs, so if
knows about this family, please let me know.
