WARKENTHIEN posted by Dave Carlson on Saturday, April 4, 1998

WARKENTHIEN I'm looking for information on my great-great-grandparents Theodore WARKENTHIEN and Dorothea (Dorothy) WARKENTHIEN. I'd also be interested in finding records for any of their children: Sophia (my great-grandmother, b. 1867 in Illinois) Friedrich Theodore Jr. Clara Louis August The WARKENTHIEN family lived in Benton County starting about 1881. (Several papers I have mention residence in Van Horne and in St. Clair Twp.) It would really help to find Theodore and Dorothea's death certificates. I hope that I can then find out where and when they were born, and their hometowns in Germany. Thanks! Dave Carlson
