I am excited to read the information that you have found on Friedrich Hauptreif. I have researched the Hauptreifs on and off for many years and have never heard of the "Der Irontoner Post". After receiving your post I called Briggs Library in Ironton, Ohio and to my shock they had some of this paper on microfilm, including the obituary that you mentioned. No one had ever mentioned this newspaper before.
I would love to correspond with you about our family and also discuss with you about our connection to the Hauptrief family of Texas. My grandfather was John Carl Hoptry, son of Fred & Anna Hauptreif. How are you related?
Thank you so much for this wonderful information.
