Thank you for your interest!
Yes, the previous poster contacted me off-line about Albertine. And there is a contact name. But she also had a brother, and there is a tree out there for him, and I have contacted that person, and am waiting for a reply.
Yes, Eugene is the father of Elsa, who is my cousin's grandmother. You got my interests about a probate item! Can you let me know what I have to do to see it?
I received two marriage licenses for Eugene yesterday from New York. (I am assuming they got sent before the snow started.) It shows Eugene, a widower, married a second time a year before Elsa's marriage, and was not really in her life after that point. Oh -- I just did the math. Since the casualty list was January, 1915, and Eugene got married after that, he cannot be the one on the German casualty list.
Thank you again -- I look forward to learning about the probate.
