I am in desperate need of assistance from sks in the Putnam County area. I am trying to put together a Christmas gift for a very dear friend and I cannot find out anything about one of her family surnames. This is about all that I know.

Anthony Yacklin was born in or around Putnam Co on 2 Sept 1899 to Joseph Yacklin and Christina ? Anthony and his brother and sister, Henry and Magdalena, all ended up as Orphans in orphanages around the state of Ohio. According to the 1900 ohio census father Joseph born Aug 1842 in Austria/Germany and mother Christina born Dec 1869 in Ohio. Family stories state that Christina was alive many years later and that they were all from the Putnam Co ( possible Ottawa area) area and that no one ever knew what became of Joseph Yacklin. The 1900 census does state that he was naturalized. Can anyone assist me in finding out more as I do not have the option at this time of visiting Putnam county. Thank you very much.
