Is really late better than never? I don’t know.
I saw this inquiry after a search for the German suffix of “horn”.
Doris passed away this last summer 2009.
Doris Mechura was my great aunt who was preceded in death by her sister, my grandmother, Ruth Pulju.
I guess that means I am your husband’s second cousin.
Here is a wonderful story about her by the Faribault Daily News.http://faribault.com/news.php?viewStory=93689
Here is the last sentence: “Besides her two daughters, Mechura is survived by two sons, Anton Mechura of Farmington and Charles Mechura of Northfield; 10 grandchildren; 17 great-grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; and a sister, Ursina Kern of Glendale, Ore.”
The two daughters are: Alice Hopke, and Anna Bluhm of Faribault MN.
