RE: Herman correction Thanks, but no. I am following a Barfknecht line via Herman Loek's wife, Bertha Anna Barfknecht. Her line may or may not be related to my Barfknecht line in WI. Just trying to sort things out, and I thought I would update things I could for others.
Herman Stephen Loek Thanks for posting the additional information. Could you please correct is somehow to read that William, his brother-in-law, Carl Colundan and the latter's uncle, Jonas Juhl were doing the hunting. William stopped by his father Herman's home to return the gun and stepped up on the porch to remove the shells. Just when the last shell jammed, Herman stepped out of the house onto the porch followed by another man, Julius Krantz, and that was when the gun went off, hitting Herman.
Tried to condense it in my first message to you, but it must not have been clear.
Francis W Pelton children Francis and Amanda Breed Pelton also had a son, Wells Stacey Pelton who was born 3 May 1854 in Byron, Fond du Lac, WI. (WI Pre 1907 Birth Records) He married Fanny Jones, date unknown. He died 25 Sept 1924 in Seattle, King, Washington. (WA Vital Records)
Their daughter, Emma Sultana Pelton Burns was my great grandmother.
