I have a little bit of info for you if you would like it. William Pophal fits into my family tree like so:

William Pophal married DOROTHEA GRUETZMACHER on September 21, 1929 in St. John Lutheran Church in Mosinee, Marathon County, WIsconsin. She was born on August 20, 1900 to August Albert Paul Gruetzmacher and Emilie Augustine Ernstine Wendorf. (I have further info on her parents and grandparents as well if you would like it). Dorothea died in January 1987 in Park Falls, Price County, Wisconsin. William was born June 25, 1906 in Merrill, Lincoln County, Wisconsin. He died April 22, 1989 in Merrill.

A newspaper clipping:
"Merrill Couple Married 50 Years - MERRILL- Dorothea and William F. Pophal, Route 2, Merrill, observed their 50th wedding anniversary Friday with a family get-together at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Bauman. A dinner party in their honor had been held on Labor Day at the home of their son, Harold, Route 6, Merrill. Louise Gruetzmacher and Mrs. Paul Ahrens, both of Marathon, were in Attendance. The former Dorothea Gruetzmacher was born in Mosinee and Mr. Pophal was born in Merrill. They have lived in the Merrill area since their wedding September 21, 1929. Besides Harold, they have another son, William H., Route 2, Merrill and three grandchildren and a great grandchild. Mr. Pophal, a former town board member in the town of Scott, was employed at Anson and Gilkey Co. in Merrill before he began farming. Now retired, the Pophals are members of St. Paul's Lutheran Church in the town of Pine River."

HAROLD POPHAL was born in 1930 and married to Bonnie (don't have a last name)

I don't have much info on this family yet, but I am planning a trip to Merrill within the week, so I may have more soon.
