My maternal grandmother was Josephine Ehlert, nee Zubcack. She and her twin, Kathrine (my Aunt Kat died recently) were one of 9 children of Ida Zubcack nee Schmidt. My great-grandma Ida died in 1983 at age 100. She was an amazing woman! The last of her nine children is my Aunt Helen, who still lives in Price County, WI.
This is an old posting, so I hope you find it! Feel free to e-mail me if you need more info. I've always wondered about the Pries side of the family and would love to hear anything you know about Walter Pries or his father (also Walter I believe).
