- original list of names was submitted by Charlene Barnhart from an unknown source
- note: comments found in [brackets] were added by the submitter; comments found in (parenthesis) or not enclosed, are from the WPA records


*submitted corrections & additional notes from Barbara Bates (Nov. 2003)

1. Luense, Burdette should be Wessel, Burdette E. - He was my mother's twin brother.
2. Luense, Edward should be Wessel, Edward F. - He was the father of the twins Burdette E. and Bernice Wessel.
3. Luense, Flora is correct. She was married to Edward Wessel until his early death & was mother of the twins. Flora later married John Luense.
4. Luense, Lucille should be Wessel, Lucille. She was the wife of Burdette E. Wessel.
