Shelley, there were some Ottenbreit families that I ahve documents on from Grayson. I have a document entitled, "St. Mary's Parish, Book of memories" dated 1982, and in it are various Ottenbreits. One of the links between my family (mother's side) is that my mom's aunt, Sophie Rieger, married George M. Gelowitz. One of their sons, Johnny married Annie Ottenbreit.
Also, my great aunt (mother's side) Mary Zaleski married Anton Ottenbreit. I'm still working on their family.
I have lots of gaps. With mom dead, it is tough, but my various cousins out west are starting to work out that end of it. I used to chuckle each time I was in Grayson as it seemed the entire town was related to us.
I have from the earleir referenced document, the following Ottenbreits (appreciate that there are lots of descendents mentioned in this document (either way, i.e., parents and children):
Adam & Violet (Stradeski) Ottenbreit
Bev & Lorraine (Dycer) Ottenbreit
Colin & Denise (Ottenbreit) Ottenbreit
Alois & Victoria (Mayer) Ottenbreit
Allan & Maine (Ottenbreit) Ottenbreit
Denis & Celine (Ottenbreit) Ottenbreit
Edward & Mildred (Desrosiers) Ottenbreit
George & Mary Ottenbreit
Mike & Rose (Douhanuik) Ottenbreit
Roderick & Irene (Exner) Ottenbreit
William & Anne (Magerl) Ottenbreit
It is a bit of fun sorting the horde out, but eventually I will. My mom knew the entire pciture but did not get it all down on paper. My dad, born in 1920, knows some of it, and I will get the time to sort it out, as well as go through the various pictures.
Keep in touch.
