I found Emil G. Woellner in the 1920 census, St. Joseph, Missouri. It lists him as age 68 (makes him born 1852). It also shows date of immigration as 1875, date of naturalization 1880. I do not have birth or death certificates proving this one way or other and there is no family Bible that I know of.The census lists Emil age (68 from Saxony), Augusta (age 68 from Saxony) Louis (age 31, a baker)Louise (age 26, a stenographer).I knew Uncle Louie, one of the children, and he was abaker. The other children, Albert, Emma, and Minnie are not listed as they were no longer living at home in 1920.
In the St. Joseph Directories, 1887-1890 it shows Emil as a butcher which matches family stories and a picture of the butcher shop.
Other memories say that he came from Erfurt, Germany and met Augusta in St. Louis, Missouri. She was from Erfurt also. This matches your location right?

I have a marriage certificate that says George Emil Willner (love how they spelled on official documents back then) married Auguste Roenike (it is spelled Roencke on her daughters death cert) on June 16. 1877 in St Louis, Missouri.

You did not state when the letter was sent to your family. Let me know what you can add to this. Are we talking of the same Emil?
Thanks for another spelling of Woellner.
