Richard and Carol, and anyone else who cares to look,
I was reading your letters on this message board. It is
great to find more Hackert relatives. My name is Leon
Henry Spors. My mother was Mary Elizabeth Hackert, daughter
of Peter Herman Hackert and Martha Semrau. His father was
Peter Hackert, Sr., born in Germany. My mother married John
Andrew Spors. Our family w/6 children grew up in the Rosen,
Minnesota area, close to the towns of Bellingham and Nassau.
I married Mariann Louise Meyer from Revillo, SD, we left the
area to live in Calif, Denver, and now Ft Collins, CO. We also
have 6 children. I recently retired, and spend much time on
genealogy. As you know, Richard, I am currently working on a
tree of Peter H Hackert's descendants for distribution to those
families, after they check and complete each family's info. I
have done it in my own format in MS Word for easier distribution.
I also have Family Tree Maker, and have some Hackert and Spors
trees. However, Carol, my Hackert tree is scarce on your (John
Hackert/Martha Semrau) family. Thanks for the info you have already
posted. Maybe we can exchange more info. Do you know the relationship
of our grandmothers, both Martha Semrau's? Also, if you have some
questions about the people in the Rosen/Nassau areas, I may be able
to help, as I grew up there. Anyway, my email addr is: email@example.com
if anyone wishes to contact me directly.
Enough for now, I have rambled on.
Leon H Spors
