In Response To: Spiess, Barthold (Lenka Tallman)

Hi - My name is Higgs, Layne and I am related to this family thru my great grandmother Holtorf, Alvina 1870-1913. She was married to a Butson, William and they lived in Pomeroy, Calhoun Co, Ia. After Alvina died he remarried to a Trenery, Edith and they resided at Twin Lakes, Calhoun County Ia for many years. Holtorf, Alvina's parents were Holtorf, Claus 1843-44 to 1912 and Spiess, Catherne 1847-48 to 1926. This family lived in Calhoun County, Ia, then went to Minn and eventually ended up in Young and Zelma, Sask where they passed away. Spiess, Catherne and Barthold are brother and sister. A web site called Family Search tells me Barthold was born March 13 1838 in Wilster, Steinburg, Schleswig Holstein, Germany and gives alot of infor concerning this family. It looks like we could be related. I am also interested in any photos that may exist of members of this family - and would be willing to share whatever infor I may have. Some of my photos have been input on Family Search. Would love to hear back from you - and if I can offer any more assistance please let me know. Thanks. higgs.layne@yahoo.com or 801-540-9003.
