In Reply to: Dorothy Louise Kottke, NY 1923 by Kelly Lewis of 30

Dear Kelly, George and Mary(Klatt) are my grandparents. Mary died in Florida. George died about 1937 when I was one year old.The family story is my grandfather died by working himnself to death. He was a farmer in Clear Lake, Wisconsin and he came down with rheumatic fever resulting in heart damage. He was advised to move east to live an easier life. He moved to Schenectady, NY with his wife and eight children.There he had to work two jobs to keep up with expenses. This was during the great depression. I, also, am looking for my aunt Dorothy's (your grandmother) address and phone number.I last heard she was living in Tennessee. Along with Dorothy, Mildred the second oldest daughter and Alvin the second youngest son of George and Mary are still alive.Mildred is in her nineties.If I can be of any more help please ask. Ted Kottke
