Hi Vera! I saw you were looking for Trautmans, and although I don't think there are any in my tree, I did grow up in an area with lots of TROUTMANs. You might look in Miami and Linn counties in Kansas. (That's in eastern Kansas) Some of the towns are Osawatomie, Paola, Mound City, Rantoul, Parker, Cadmus, and Fontana) Hope this might help with your search!
Hey there Vera Moore,
THANK YOU once again for your assistance. This is awesome! I am going to contact your friend via her email address. I will keep you updated on any progress finding my lost ggrandfather. Thanks again for your help. You are so nice to help me. God bless you.
Thanks for your assistance with Anderson's death...It has stumped me.
Now, a nephew that is helpin with the Bentley research told me he found the grave of one of Anderson's children. She purchased the plot and 3 people were buried there. The employees could identify two of them but the third one was unknown.....DARE I HOPE? Anyway, the cemetary folks were supposed to get back with my nephew but he has heard nothing so far. I am working through these notes to find that info.
I tried to pinpoint his death and figured he must have died sometime around 1911 on because he was listed on the 1910 Census but not on the 1920 Census....
I have to get back into this search before I can no longer.
