Took me a few days to get my notes together on what I have on the Piergues: Here goes:
Born: 17 Dec 1815
Birthplace: Luzelhausen, France (This is in the Bas-Rhin region near Strasbourg, France
Died: 3 Nov 1872, Ottawa, IL
Birthplace: Alsace, France
Died 1892, Marysville, KS
The information above was provided by:Thierry.Brand@wanadoo.fr
in July, 1998. He indicates the last name Strouble is very typical Alsatian name as "Struble"
Next on my list:
Piergue, John Lawerence
Born: 03 Aug 1844
Luzelhausen, France (known as Lutzelhouse in Bas-Rhin region near Strasbourg)
Died: 1 Dec 1930, Ottawa, IL
Born: 22 Dec 1849
Ffay Billot Ste, France
(Fayl-Billot region of Haute-Marne, France)
Date of death: Unkown She is listed on 1900 Census, though
Albert Emil Piergue
Born: 6 Sept 1869
Died: 20 Oct 1929
Buried in Ottawa Ave. Cemetery on 22 Oct 1929
His obituary listed the following relatives as survivors:
Father: Lawerence Piergue (aka Lon)
Mrs. Katherine Wadsworth of Saginaw, MI
Mrs. Louis Reed of Chicago, IL
Mrs. Lee Uhl of Ottawa, IL (could be Juhl?)
she was also listed on death certificate for providing information indicating Albert Emil was a widower and his wife was Marie.
Trying to work Ralph into the picture and not sure if he is the nephew of Albert Emil?
Do you know anyone named Charles Sanders in Ottawa IL? He is listed as somwone who may have Piergue listed on family tree. I have sent two e-mails, but no reply to date.
What relation would Juhl/Uhl be to Albert Emil? I think just by marriage. Not sure, though. Unfortunately, I do not live in that part of the country, or I would have this solved tomorrow! I live in the Pacific Northwest and my access to Ottawa is limited. I was hoping to make contact with someone who could go out to the cemetery where ALbert Emil is buried and look around for maybe his wife's grave; whom I suspect is my father's grandmother.
Let me know if this is helpful. I am encouraged by the contact we have extablished; maybe I can solve this before Dad's birthday! What a great present that would make! Take care.
