I have a feeling we may have a connection here. The Blinde family also came through St.Louis, MO. to Concordia, MO. they belonged to the MO. Lutheran church in Concordia, MO. where I found these records so far. If you want to email me direct it is email@example.com
I am very interested in what you have and where to search. because I do not know what happened to them after the second child was baptized except I know they still lived in Concordia, MO in Nov. 12,1897 as there was the article in our home paper stating a visit to August Blinde at Johnson, NE. from Concordia, Mo. by Marion and Pauline Scharnhorst. not sure who Marion is unless it was sister Mary or a husband of Pauline. If I knew the source in Iowa to check maybe I could find the connection. and we also are related to the Schnackenberg family of MO. who married into my Hahn family. they were also of Concordia, MO. too many connections here.
