Dear Nancy, How very interesting to meet up with a relative of Emil Mix. He and his wife became dear friends of my parents after returning to Eureka at age 80, I believe, for the first time since leaving at age 16. I accompanied them as we toured the country side, visited his childhood home still as it was with the well and all. My parents visited them in New York and communicated until their deaths. My father made a scrapbook of his visit and things he had done and it was given to the daughter,Gana, whom they visited with also in New York. My father writes in his autobiography that his parents home was bought from a Gottleib Mix and my father played basketball at the Eureka Luth. College with a Milbert Mix. I have to find out from my uncle or sister what Mix they were married along with. I see no record of it in this book. There is a bio in the Eureka 37 Jubilee book about Charles Mix. His brothers are listed:John, Fred, Gorrlieb and Christ. They first settled in Douglas County in the Dakota Territory, In 1888 they located sW of Bowdle, SD. , Christ came to Eureka and opedned a tin shop.Charles followed a year later. This Charles must be the one married with my grandparents it shows him married the same year as my grandparents. Charles passed away and his wife remarried to John Lauck and lived in Iowa. My uncle may have more information for you. He is 87 and still very much alive. Still working as a mortician. If you want I can get you his name etc, or see what I can find out for you. What a pleasant email find. Margaret
