Nebraska Wohlfeils: Herman and William

My great grandfather Herman immigrated from Prussia/Germany (according to his WWI registration card) in 1873. He had 4 children: Fredrick WOHLFEIL (28 MAR 1882), Bertha WOHLFEIL (born DEC 1883, but may not have survived), William WOHLFEIL (21 MAY 1885), and Otto John WOHLFEIL (15 APR 1893).

My grandfather was the middle child, William Wohlfeil. William and his wife Hazel had Lorell (in 1917) and Norwyn (in 1919) in Idaho. Hazel passed away (on an unknown date) and he married Edith Dorsey. With Edith he had two children: Elizabeth and Herman (in 1945) in Oregon.

Herman Wohlfeil married Melody and in 1983, ta-dah, I am born.

(I have left out step children, and extended family from this list. Family names seems to run Herman, William, Herman. So I think that Herman's, the original from Prussia, father was named William. This could be misinformation, however.)

I would like to know if any of these people are related to any of you folks that post on this forum. I'd like to know more about any of my relative (living or dead), even if they are from a line I haven't mentioned here. Any information would be wonderful as I know very little about this side of my family.

Thanks so much for your time in reading this, and any replies.
