Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! I can't tell you how exciting this is, you are confirming things that I have guessed at but have not yet been able to validate. WOW! I have been corresponding with someone, who is related to Josepha Stephan Zeller (Zoeller) and has a beautiful family tree on Roots Web. I had told him that I believed that my great grandmother, Magdalena Zipperle Stelzer, whose mother was Christine Stephan, was the niece of Josepha and Anton Stephan. You have given me facts that coincide with his family history showing Lorenz Stephan as the father. I am very new to geneology and have not yet tried my hand at the microfilms of LDS but hopefully I will order some and view them nearby. I live in Lombard, IL and my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
, I have some wonderful old pictures of Magdalena. I hear she was quite a gal from what my aunt, Marie Stelzer told me.
