Thank you. The photograph online of Henriette Splettstoeser's stone is wonderful and I appreciate it very much.
I am wondering if these families may have been related or have known each other in the old country. I believe my Splettstoeser family originated from Kolmar, Posen, Prussia. I have also found a Christian Friedrich Splettstoesser there married to Wilhelmine Redetzki. There are several Luedtkes in the same village.
Do your Ludtkes come from that area by chance?
