I read your posting of 17 Jul 2003 while looking for the family name of Reh. I noticed that your Gr.Grandfather had married my Grandfather's sister( Wilhelmina Reh ).
I had been doing a lot of research on that side of the family and have found quite a lot of info from Louis C. Herig onward.
In brief, Louis C. Herig married Wilhelmina( Mina) Reh in Canada on 28 Jun 1892. It was her second marriage( the first was to Gustav Fanslaw on 15 Nov. 1882). Mina and Gustav had four children- Emma Bertha, Muriel, Anna Jane and Marie Augusta.
Mina and Louis Herig had six children.
*Niemond(Raymond) F. Herig. b: 12 Jun 1893
d: 18 Dec. 1968
(for some reason I havn't found out yet, he changed his last name to Fanslaw).
*Clarence E. Herig. b: 9 Apr 1895
d: 13 Dec. 1957
(Clarence had a twin brother that died at birth.)
*Clara Augusta Herig b: 13 Feb 1897
*Arther William Herig b: 27 Nov 1898
d: 28 Jul 1958
*Helen Mary Herig b: 10 May 1902
d: 7 Dec. 1976
I also have info. on the children of all the above but there is so little space here. If you like, I can e-mail the listing to you.
I also know the cemeteries where the above are laid to rest.
My information shows Louis C. Herig in Elmwood cemetery, not Evergreen. Wilhelmina Reh Fanslaw Herig is in Evergreen with her sister Maria Reh and three daughters from Fanslaw.
While searching through the censuses, the only spelling I've seen is Herig. If you have proof that it was changed earlier, could you send it to me for my files?
By the way,since you're a decendant of Clarence, He's in Acacia Park Cemetery, Birmingham, Michigan. He married Florence Yates and had one boy (Donald L.) b:29 Nov 1927.
Donald married Dorothy Brownfield. Their children were Craig, Kimberly and Kelly. (Or , that's what my records show.)
I hope I've been a help to you and your search.
