RE: John's mother
Thank you for editing the name. My 3rd gr grandfather was Nicholas Burkhardt. His daughter Mary married Lorenz Bungart. It gets very confusing because some of the Burkhardts used Burgett, Burkhard and Burgard. My sources are church records, local histories, death records, birth records and death certificates.

John's mother
Hi, I am the 3rd gr. granddaughter of John's parents Nichola Burkhardt and Barbara. I have records showing her maiden name as NOSS. Their marriage record and birth records of some of their children. Perhaps the name was spelled differently?

Thanks so much for all your help. I've already found one relative in the source you sent! Hopefully I can do a RAOGK to pass it on!

Thank you for processing my edits on Thomas Cleary #44278712. His sister Catherine married into the Van Meters, and was my father's grandmother.

I don't know if you happen to know this, or how local you are to Toledo -- but you seem super active and on top of things, so I thought I'd float out a question.

I think the key to taking our Cleary's back across the ocean lies in the records of the Calvary Cemetery in Toledo, and the associated Catholic Church, if they still exist. Would you happen to know of any holding locally? Or who it is that might know? We have births there from 1836-1852, and the mother (of Thomas, Catherine, and siblings) apparently died in 1852 as well (rumor only at this point).

Thanks again,
Catherine Van Meter

Ken here is Lucinda's husband name.

She Albert Joseph Brown (1909-1977), I believe. It looks like they had 1 child Albert Louis Brown (1935-1988).

Hey Ken ....talked to my Aunt Danilda and she said there was another sibling I never knew of. Her name is Cindy.. That's all she knew of her. She handed done all her records to my niece Krista to take care of. I will have to ask my niece. She just texted me this: I don't know about Fred being a nickname for Leonard--I have his middle name as George. She may be right, though. I'm pretty sure Cindy is short for Lucinda. Here is what I have....

1. Herman/Harman Westrick 1898–1983

2. Ardella Westrick 1900

3. Ralph Henry Westrick 1901–1984

4. Urban William Westrick (It's actually probably William Urban) 1903-1990

5. Leonard George Westrick 1905–1988

6. Adam A Westrick 1907–1982

7. Lucinda Mary Westrick Mar 27,1909–Mar 14, 1988 I'm guessing this is who "Cindy" is

8. Mary Agnes Westrick 1915–2003

9. Edward Westrick. .....
