Thanks for this valuable info. I can't check the online tree you cite w/o paying Ancester.com some $$. Perhaps I should just bite the bullet and do that b/c I am very curious about this.
I feel confident now that we are talking about the same Peter Meyer, although I acknowledge that the info in the 1900 census is confusing. I think Bertha had a couple of kids from another husband before Peter and Antonie's marriage hit the rocks. According to that theory, Beatrice and Ruth would have been children from her first marriage and Lillie and PJ junior would have been Peter's biological children. Make sense?
