This may be a "far-fetched" idea but in working on the Abels-Anderson family I have an old old letter written by a family member excerpt reads as follows" Mother had an aunt Mary Ann Rader that lived at Ravenswood. Dad had an Aunt Sarah Landfried that lived at Ripley. I think was Grandma's sister. There are several Landfrieds at Ripley; all nice friendly people." Have you any Abels-Andersons in your family line? Would appreciate any help you can give.
I will be back in Ravenswood May 2008 still digging up family roots. My e-mail is FJPotts@aol.com
