Hello everyone. Here is what I have. My grandfather Raymond Frederick McKinley (adopted name) was a Keiderling. His father Fred died of a huge flu epidemic. Fred was married to Blanche Jolls. Of course they lived in Waterloo/Blackhawk Iowa. From what I have researched Freds father was Nick Keiderling and mother was Kate (no maiden name) It looks from the messages on here that my Nick was one of the brothers born in NJ that moved on to Iowa. Do we have any more information on our German heritage and does anyone have any more on the family as I would love to make sure I am on the right track.
