Notes from the contributor:
The surname Barnhard appears to be interchangable with Barnhart depending on the record. Clyde's baptism record spells the surname Barnhard, but several years of census records & other documents have Barnhart.
Louise (Seeman) Groth was the wife of Fred Groth who died in 1914. Louise died in 1946. They are buried in the Guttenberg City cemetery.
Their daughter Elizabeth 'Lizzie', was married to Alton 'Clyde' Barnhard, and their son Wilson, was married to Letha M. Brown.
