Marianne Burczynska Schmidt from Koparzyn, Prussia enlisted the help of Edward Hohl (Beaver Dam, Dodge Co.) to find her husband Christoph Schmidt in 1869. Christoph was known to have been in Michigan, and the request includes calling for newspapers in Detroit, Buffalo and throughout Michigan to publish the request for help to locate Mr. Schmidt. The clipping does not identify a relationship between Edward Hohl and the Schmidt family, but many similar notices indicate some sort of family connection (brother-in-law would be fairly typical).
