HEINEN, RECHARTZ, SCHNELL posted by Ann Schnell Tankersley on Saturday, March 11, 2000

I don't know exactly where to post this. I have been researching my genealogy and have a Certificate of Baptism for my Grandmother - Mary Anne Heinen.
She was born Sept. 28, 1866 in Leavenworth Kansa. She was Baptised Oct. 7, 1866. Her father is listed as Christopher Heinen and her mother is listed as Anne Mary Heinen. She was baptised at St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Leavenworth.
I know she married a man named Rechartz in Colorado, had a son and was widowed there. She married my Grandfather - Frank Schnell of Odessa, Russia in Witchia Falls, Texas in 1894.
I would appreciate any info you might be able to shed on the Heinen family. I believe Christopher was a wheel wright for the Army.

Any information on the Treff, Storm, Litchen, Witt, Zapp, Caulk, Boddafeldt families will be reatly apprecated.
I have been working on these lines for approximately 20 years. I have a vastamount of information to share. Christian Storm and Katherina Reep Storm were in leavenworth when the town was founded. Their daughter mary married Frederick A. Treff. They had 6 girls and 2 boys. Frederick A. had a relative (possibly a brother) also living in Leavenworth County, his name was William Treff. Beside mary, Christian and Katherina had numerous Storm children. While I have lots of info., I still have lots of gaps. AND WHERE ARE THE REST OF THE DESCENDANTS?
P.S. Thanks to those responsible for maintaining the Kansas Room at the Leavenworth Public Libray, it has helped tremendously.

WILLIAMS posted by Dixie Blake on Thursday, June 15, 2000

I am looking for an obituary and related newspaper articles from the late 1940's- mid 1950's. It involved an automobile accident with the husband, Elmer Williams driving. I was told he hit a bridge. He was stationed at Ft. Leavenworth and the accident occured on Interstate 70. He had been overseas during WWII. The wife was killed. I don't know her first name, but she was German. He had been drinking, and was either court martialed or threatened with it. There may or may not have been children involved in the accident. Is there someone who can assist me in finding information about this?

Thank you so much!
