The genealogy lists Johnann George ERCK b. 5 Aug d 20 Jan 1864 (Teacher amd Mayor of Solz, Landkreis Meinigen, (formerly) East Germany.
One of his sons was Johnann Heinrich b. 1826, d. 1891, m.Anna Justine BREMSTELLER 1852.
2d of nine chidren was Berta, b. 1854, d. 1940, m. 1874 to
The families "go all over the place." (This is a technical term for lots of kids spread over much of the mid-West... and becoming more-so). :-)
Take a look at the letter I posted on 20 Nov and let me know if we have a connection.
