(Below is from Membership List)

Dress Friederich, wife: Elisabeth, children: Maria 7 Johann 3, Veronica .
Dress Michael, wife: Elisabeth, children: Wilhelm 2 , Maria .

I will include the 2 Drees families together. They shared a house in the 1856 Iowa Census. They
each had their own home in the 1860 Federal Census.

Friederich Drees (1824-1894) b. Oldenburg, Germany. bur. Oldenburg, Franklin, Indiana.
Elisabeth Wesling (1828-1925) b. Oldenburg, Germany. bur. Oldenburg, Indiana.
mar. 1850, Franklin Co., Indiana.

Children:
Maria (1851-?) b. Indiana.
Johann (1854-?) b. Indiana.
Veronica (1857-?) b. Festina, Iowa.
Elisabeth (1859-?) b. Festina, Iowa.
Anthony (1864-?) b. Festina, Iowa.

Friederich & Elisabeth came to Iowa between 1855-1856. It appears they went back to Indiana
after 1864. They appear in the 1870 Federal Census there.

Michael Drees (1814-1890) b. Oldenburg. bur. Richmond Twp., Nemaha County, Kansas.

John (1859-?) b. Festina, Iowa.
Edward (1861-?) Festina,Iowa.
Henry (1865-?) Festina, Iowa.

Michael & Elisabeth lived in New Vienna, Dubuque, Iowa, in 1855, when William was born.

Michael & Elisabeth came to Festina after this time. They would move to Kansas between 1865
& 1869.

Elisabeth was alive in 1900. She lived at Keuterville, Idaho, Idaho, with her son, Edward.
