LAVLER posted by Florence Lucero on Sunday, March 8, 1998

Hello, I am searching for some information on a story I was told. My Great Grandfather was supposed to have been in the Federal Prision in Leavenworth. This story came to me from my grandfather who I only meet once. His father who's last name was suppose to Lavler (sic). Lost the farm in the depression, and joined a gang who was robbing banks in the mid west. They were captured and he was held in the Levenworth Federal Prision. Where he assisted in a break out attempt. He was supposed to have had an arm shot off in the attempt and died in the Federal Prision. My grandfather was an alcholic, and was drunk when he told me this story. Is their anyone that you know of who would be able to verify the validity of the story, so I can continue to look into my family history. Please e-mail me anything that you can at flolucero@wayfair1.com this is my mother's e-mail address and she will pass it along to me. Thank you in advance for any information that you may be able to provide. Emery

FRY, LOHMANN, MITCHELL, RABE, SCHWECHTEN posted by John H Lohman on Thursday, March 26, 1998

I am researching the descendants of Hermann L. FRY. Hermann married my aunt Emma LOHMANN in Texas in Freestone County, TX on June 6,1896. A known daughter, Ruby Alpha FRY, was born April 9,1902, probably in Arkansas. Post cards show that she was in Coffeyville, Kansas in 1921. She studied Stenography and Bookkeeping. Graduated Coffeyville H.S. 5/19/21. She may have gone to Kansas University. Emma took care of her younger sister, Selma, after their mother's death in 1895 for some time. As indicated in a letter to August LOHMANN, their father and my grandfather, on 1/1/1906 Emma was in Dodd City, Marion County, Arkansas. Emma's husband Herman L. FRY was a legal agent and superintendent in 1905 for the Iola Mining and Milling company in Iola, Kansas. (A facility may have been in Zinc, Arkansas, county unknown). George A. FRY was the president of the Iola Mining Company. They may have been in Boone County Arkansas and mailed the letter from Dodd City. In addition the letter said: a. That she was in poor health. b. Uncle Fritz SCHWECHTEN was dead. Died 7/13/05 in Leavenworth hospital with cancer of the stomach. c. Otto SCHWECHTEN (Fritz's son) was in Chicago and didn't come to his father's death. d. Emma wrote Aunt Fredrieka [Schwechten] RABE about Fritz's death. Fredrieka had already heard from Mrs. Maily that Fritz was dead. e. Mrs. Maily has four kids. Helen the youngest is getting married soon. Mrs. Maily's husband has been bed ridden for 12 years with rhumetism. f. Suggests that Willie ( Wilhelm Heinrich LOHMANN, aka William Henry Lohman, my father) come to Arkansas to learn about mining and work with Herman FRY and learn about mining. g. Katie LOHMANN MITCHELL, another sister, was in Belton going to school in 1905. h. Annie, another sister, was with Emma for one month in 1905. i. Annie was there when Emma got "Step-Mother's" letter about not having been married to August in a church. j. She apologies for the "hot" letter that she wrote about his, August, not being married in a church. k. Implies that Hermann FRY's mother lives in their area and that she is 73 yrs. I thank all for any assistance. John Lohman, 7519 Shadylane Drive, San Antonio, TX 78209 jlohman@txdirect.net

I am looking for any information on the TREFF family. Fred Treff and William Treff both arrived in Leavenworth about 1854. The received their naturlaization papers to the United States In leavenworth. Both died as Leavenworth county residents. Fred Treff married Mary Storm, Mary was the daughter of Katherina Storm (buried at Mount Muncie) and Chrisitian Storm. I have know record of what happend to Chrisitan Storm. There are assumptions that he may have left leavenworth to go mining. Are ther any reocrds of the men of Leavenworth, that did so? Fred Treff, according to his obituary in the Leavenworth paper served under Colonel Tom Moonlight in the Kansas Militia. How do I go about getting those records? Anyones help will be appreciated. I have lots of research on the Leavenworth area, and have run across numerous names, that I see on the Lv. Co. queries. I will share information.
