Herbstreit is what I believe the German version of this name, and it is a common name in south-west Germany.
Familysearch gives:
Johannes Baptista Herbstreit, son of Sebastian Herbstreit and Maria Anna Kuenstler, bapt. 25 May 1795, catholic, in Ettenheim/Freiburg, Baden, Germany.
Maybe this can be a starting point for further research. I think there is another Ettenheim in Baden, near Offenburg, where also Herbstreits may have lived.

The churchbooks of Ettenheim are availiable online in there original scans, but they are hard to read. Take a look here:
Then click on the link "Zum Bestand südbadischer Standesregister" and choose "Ettenheim" in the list on the left side of the page. The different books will be listed in the main frame and you are able to look at the images.

I am wondering if there is a volunteer that would be willing to meet me at the Barker Cemetery this summer to help me find Emma McDowell's tombstone? I would be looking for her mother - Elizabeth's and her father's - John as well.
Thank you!

Vonda, I have some experience with, and relatives in, Barker. I don't recall seeing any McDowells during my visits but I wasn't looking for them. I will email you and we can exchange info.

I am a descendant of the Chezem family who lived in Cumberland, Clinton and Jasper counties in the late 1800. My gr. grandfather was Marion Alexander Chezem b. July, 1848 and married a Jane Talbott b. 1844- 1851. They had 5 sons and 1 daughter

Per the 1900 census in Irishtown Twp Clinton County:

James Alexander b. Oct. 1870

Squire George b. Nov.,1875

General Frank b. May,1878, my grandfather

Oscar C. b. May, 1886

E. Roscoe b. June, 1892 per the

Ivy was the daughter and I have no information on her.

We do have the Chezem Genealogy book, but it has no data on Jane Talbott. I have searched to no avail for information on all three county's sites and the Illinois archives for marriage license or death certificate information on her. Do you have anything available to you that I cannot see? Thank you so much for any assistance you might be able to provide.

While still searching the Hofbauer/Hoffbauer family I came across 2 children that my great grandparents had Maria Hofbauer and Joseph Hoffbauer parents are John and Therese Hofbauer. They died in infancy. Can you tell me where they are buried at.

Thank you

I previously uploaded this photo to your website but it is too large for this message. Through a Google search I found your site and the New Memphis Station School. My photo show a Memphis Station School dated 1923.
This photo is in my family collection but I can\'t identify my family connection and I don\'t know if there is a connection to Clinton County, Illinois.
My family mostly migrated from eastern Kentucky to Florida.
Any help would be appreciated.
