I have the information from Victorin J. Ruhland's Early Settlers of St. John's Parish at Union Hill in 1867. I got it off of the internet. However, you must have access to a more complete piece of his work as what I have does not include birth and death dates for Katherina. Mine doesn't show her name that way. Where did you find your copy?
I have visited the cemetary at Union Hill several times. Here is some additional information to what you sent. Johann Huss died March 25, 1884 (according to the headstone). Elizabeth (Neisen) Huss died April 9, 1908. Stephen Huss married my great grandmother Katherine Michels. Together they had 14 children. Math Huss married Elizabeth Lenz. John Huss married Louise. Anna Huss married Math Michels. I believe Math is short for Mathias which is German for Mathew? It was pronounced "Matt" though.
You had an infant, Johann Michels, in there. Do you know how he fits into the Huss family? Was Elizabeth caring for one of her siblings infants?
Do you have any idea of how the Lindenfelser families of Wright County met to marry the Gansen and Tix families of Union Hill? Margaret Michels(son of John of Union Hill) married my great Uncle Reinhold Lindenfelser of Albertville. Also there was a Lindenfelser girl who married a Tix of Union Hill. I know that Margaret Michels (also mother's name was Gertrude Gansen) was a first cousin to my grandfather, Peter Huss. But still, LeSueur County to Wright county is a long buggy ride?
