I am looking for members of the Ilg family who grew up in St. Louis on Pennsylvania in 1940. My great grandfather's name is Joseph Ilg, married to Margaret Ilg nee Buer and had a daughter, Ruth (My grandma). He had a brother named John Ilg, married Leona Ilg nee Duever and had two children, Anna Marie and Joseph. Anna Marie married an Edward Schmidt. I don't have any record of children, but I know there are some. I went to take pictures of their headstones and noticed Edward & Anna Marie's (Along with John & Leona's) headstone was decorated for Christmas. I've have pictures of the headstones at Mount Olive Cemetery for viewing on Findagrave.com. My grandma, Ruth and her cousin, Anna Marie, grew up together. If you are related, could you please contact me? I have pictures of the family I want to share and need help identifying some faces. Thank you!!
More info about Joseph and John Ilg. They were the only two children that survived into late adulthood, of Pauline Ilg (Baumgartner) nee Kimmerle. Her burial plot, along with two brothers (Otto & William) are buried in Mount Olive Cemetery right by John, Leona, Edward & Anna Marie.
