Hello Wanda,
I did a Google search for "Conrad Weis" and found your Genforum queries on both the Weis and Ehrlich Forums. It seems that you have 2 Daniel Weis families confused. Since these queries are 3 years old, you might have already figured out your mistake, and if so, then please stop reading. But in case you have not, I thought I would help you out.

My husband is a great-grandson of Conrad C. Weis who died in Friona, Parmer Co., Texas. Conrad C. Weis's father was Daniel and his mother was Marie Groff (Daniel and Marie died near Shattuck, Oklahoma and are buried in the Adventist Cemetery there and 2 of their grandchildren- not children by a
2nd wife- are buried beside them). Conrad did not have a sister named Emelia/Amalia. They immigrated to the US on the SS City of Berlin on June 26, 1876. I have a copy of the ship's manifest where he is listed with his parents and siblings. Conrad C. Weis did indeed marry Catharina "Katie" Ehrlich daughter of Johann Dietrich "Handieter" (his nickname) Ehrlich and
his wife/2nd cousin, Eva Margaretha Ehrlich Ehrlich. This Ehrlich family immigrated to the US via the SS Polaria on Feb. 9, 1891 and not in the 1870s.

Daniel (Conrad's father) had a brother named Conrad. This Conrad did not come from Russia to the US until 1890-1894 and settling in Lehigh, Marion Co., Kansas. He had a son named Conrad who did not come to the US until 1899 (per the ship's manifest I have) and also settled in Lehigh. Son Conrad had a son named Conrad, also. However, none of these Conrads had a sister
named Emelia/Amelia.

God bless,
