If it's helpful to your research, I've indexed the following Podewils names in my index since 2007: August, Fritz, Amanda, Anna (née Buening), August, Fred. Sr., Henrietta, Wilhelmina, Mrs. Ida Franz (née Podewils), Isabel M. (née Boldt). The spelling in the German papers is consistently Podewils, with one Podewihls.
Contact me directly for specific entries from "Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items" (1844-1950).
