Carl Brech and Elizabeth Wachter Brech

Classification: Query
Surnames: Wachter, Brech, Prech
I'm seeking obituaries for this husband and wife:

Carl Brech (alternate spelling: Karl Prech)
Born Feb. 1850 in Welschbillig, Trier-Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany
Died: est 1926 in Hutchinson County, South Dakota or in Davison County.

Elizabeth (or Elisabeth) Wachter Brech
Born Feb. 1852 or 1855 in Bavaria, Germany.
Died ca Dec. 24, 1942 in Davison County, South Dakota.

Both are buried (I think) at Sacred Heart Cemetery, Parkston, Hutchinson County, South Dakota. I found what could be their memorials at findagrave.com.
Memorial# 13337135
Memorial# 15463226

They were married Jan. 24, 1884, in Plain, Sauk County, Wisconsin. They had 7 children all born in Wisconsin: John, Margaret, Steven, Elizabeth, Andrew (died in infancy), William, and Christina.

I'm interested in knowing the parent's names for Elizabeth and whether or not she was a sister, niece, or child of Johann (John) Wachter who died in Plain, Sauk County, Wisconsin on Dec. 5, 1895. I'd like to know where the Wachter family came from in Germany - so am hoping an obituary might say where. All other searches turned up nothing.

Thanks,
Debbie
