Yes, I definitely think this is my husbands ggrandparents, etc. I remember Gramma Hornbaker talking about Ott- who must be the Otto you list, and he was in California. He was a baker by trade. I remember going to Gramma Hornbaker's house for dinner, and afterwards when I was washing up dishes and some baking pans, she told me not to scrub the pans too much as she had had this advice from Ott who told her such treatment would ruin the pan. I think Otto must have been dead by the time I joined the family in 1973, though.
I also remember Gramma Hornbaker telling me that she had converted to Catholicism when she married Joseph so that they could be of the same religion. I did the same when I married Steve, her grandson.
You are right about checking with the church regarding information. Eventhough I have been Catholic these many years, I don't know how forthcoming they are in such matters, but it is certainly worth a try.
I will give the parishes in Owensboro, KY a try first. If I find out anything, I will let you know.
Thanks very much for your help.
