Englehart family

I am researching my Grandma's Englehart line. Her mother was an Englehart before she married. Her name was Loretta Phoebe Englehart b. Oct. 24, 1881 in Waubay, SD. Her parents were George James Englehart and Mary Ditter Englehart. Loretta married Van Henry Groshong Feb. 12, 1896 in Crow Wing Co. MN. where they lived and raised their family.

Loretta's father James George Englehart was born Feb. 28, 1850 in Dane Station, WI. His wife Mary Ditter was born in Baden, Germany Sept. 14, 1853.James and Mary moved to Crow Wing Co. MN to be near their grandchildren. They were there til their deaths. James died Jan. 10, 1934 and Mary died Oct. 1, 1913. Both are buried in Crow Wing Co.

James George Englehart's father was George Joseph Englehart b. Jan. 2, 1818 in Steinford, Germany. He married Annie Elizabeth Schunart. Annie was born Nov. 12, 1832 in Thallfank, Germany. George Joseph Englehart died Jan. 15, 1894 in Waubay, SD. George and Annie had 14 children.

My gGrandma Loretta Phoebe Englehart Groshong moved out to Renton, Washington with my Grandma and some of her other children in the early 1940's. She lived there until her death in 1950. My Grandma, Loretta's oldest daughter, died Dec. 15, 1997 just five months shy of her 100th birthday. She is buried in the same cemetery in Renton, WA along with another of Loretta's daughters.

If anyone has any information on this Englehart line I would love to see it.
