Homer Stiwinter now lives in Franklin, NC. He is in declining health, so you should contact him as soon as possible. My mother, Ella Mae Leopard Stiwinter, is his cousin and stays in contact with him weekly. She thinks this son may have died last year, but you should verify with Homer, My mother is 79 this year and rememembers her grandpa and some of the tales he told to her of someone sailing over to America. A child, maybe his father, was caught by the overall straps to keep from falling overboard on the ship. Good luck with your search. If you cannot find Homer's phone no. contact me again and I will get it from my mom. She lives in Waynesville, NC and I live in Hendersonville, NC. We are just trying to find the town in Germany from which they came. My mom is interested and I feel I must help her while I can. She has looked at some of the children listed and has different information. If interested, contact me.
