Dena- My great grandfather was Johann "Conrad" Kyriss, born 14 June 1835,Nordheim, Wurttemburg, Ger., died 11 Sep. 1899, Creighton, Knox Co., Nebr. He was a son of Johann Conrad Kyriss & Susanna Margaretha Mueller. His wife was Caroline Kristine Wenninger, born same place, 19 Nov. 1847 & died 26 Jan 1911, Venus, Knox Co., Nebr. both are buried in Greenwood Cem., Creighton, Nebr. Their children were:(12): Louisa Friederike/ Rudolph Carl Gabler; Catharine Karoline/ Jacob Bloom; Wilhelm Frederick (1870-1949); Karl Christian aka Charles Carl (my grandfather) (1872-1941)/wf Frieda Edith LAMBERT; Ernest (1874-1946) single, died Escondido, CA.; Christian Friedrich (1876-1898); Wilhelmine "Caroline"/William Alburn Haskins; Christiane (Nona)(1879-1919)died Spokane, WA, buried Grandview Cem., Marcus, Stevens Co., WA/ Donald W. Wilbur; August (1881-1919), bur. Grandview Cem also, wife Dartha Roselia Gardner; Franz Louis (1884-1977)/ Mary Minnie Taylorl Adolph Hugo (1886-1968/ Lena Burkhardt; and Arthur (1889-1924/Alvina Louise Ickler.
My uncle Lawrence Kyriss, deceased, formerly of Troy,MT. told me that, I believe a William Kyriss visited him many years ago, and that Anna Berg was related to him. Lawrence went to call upon this Kyriss, but a neighbor told him that he had moved and didn't know where too, so I decided to see if I could locate this family, and really appreciate you contacting me. My line of Kyriss are descended from Johann Michael Kyriss (1697-1735). I have a Kyriss record from him,and his descendants, researched by Dr. Ernest Seiter and sent to me in 2004, 13 pages.
Can you tell me who your grandfather and great grandfather are?? I hope to learn how your line and mine are related. So nice to hear from you.
