I was born and raised in Crawford Co.,Iowa.
My father's name is LaVern Wessel,m. Irma Goslar. Grandpa's name was Ernie Wessel, m. Verna Michialson. Great grandpa was Henry Wessel.(thought to be from So. Dakota and had married an native american...not too certain from which tribe).....Grandpa Ernie use to play the drums for Lawrence Welk, Ernie was the only boy born to Henry.
We grew up in Ute. Dad has one other living brother, Richard (sons of Ernie and Verna).
Am very interested in any follow-up to this message.....feel free to e-mail me @ anytime.
p.s......Ute is only 6 miles from Charter Oak.
Sincerely,......Jan Wessel Blunk
