Surnames: DIESTEL MAUE
Submitter: Pam Estrella ([email protected])
Date: 16 Aug 2003
 
 
Bernard Heinrich Anton Diestel and Theresia Maue were my Great Great Grandparents. I have pictures of most of the family from their son Herman Diestel on down.  If anyone is looking for further family history they can contact me at my email address.  I am still trying to piece together Bernard's sister's and brother's  and have retrieved some info from Germany.  I would like to know if Bernard was buried in Clinton County or if he could possibly be the Bernhardt Diestel buried at West Point Cemetery in NY.  I am trying to locate his burial place or the burial place of Theresia Maue.  I would like to point out that most of the info on your site has the last name misspelled. I saw Diesen, Dietzel. and several variations.

Surnames: STROOT STROTH WELLINGHOFF
Submitter: Tim Nutt ([email protected])
Date: 23 Jan 2003

My ancestors, Henry & Maria Schulte Strott (Stoot, Stroth) lived in Clinton County in the 1860s until 1880. At that time, the family (Henry, wife Maria, daughters Katherine, Anna, Margaret, Carolina, and Bernhard Schulte) moved to Perry County, Arkansas. It was not just this family that moved, a whole group of families from Clinton and surrounding counties moved to this area in Arkansas. Some of the other families who moved were Wellinghoff and Lipsmeyer. I can find no record of when the Strotts came to Illinois and their is some debate as to where their first child Katharine was born (either in Germany or Illinois). Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be any newspapers from around that time. Can anyone help? Thanks. Tim
