Hello. This message is for Helen Seacrist.
I realize your message was posted in 2004; however, I just saw it tonight for the first time.
I believe my great grandmother was also Fanny May Plude?!!! My grandmother remembers going to Oconto as a child, but her mother rarely spoke of her family. Besides using the name Plude, she also used the last name Maynard before marrying Jeremiah Harley Sample, with whom she and Fanny May had my grandmother and her brother.
Do you think this is the same family???
