~20 years ago Eldon and May Ringeisen compiled a family history book. Looking for whereabouts of this. And possible existence of family bible owned by son Michael.
My line is through daughter Katharina (b. 1840) who m. Carl/Chas. Layer 1860 Peoria); settled in Gilman/Iroquois Co. Children lived in Ford, Livingston, Woodford and Iroquois Counties. Happy to share existing research. Looking for anything about long lived widow Katherine Ringeisen, 1899, buried in Thawville, Iroquois Co. Died where?
Thank you!
