I'm fairly certain there is a connection, but am not positive of what it is.
The information I have is that a Charlie Eichholz
was born in Pinckneyville 5/10/1885. He m
Lillian A. Benedict who was b 12/1/1889. They had
at least 1 child, Andrew Harrison Eichholz on
5/9/1910. He is my husband's grandfather.
He died in June of 1973.
Andrew Harrison had 2 sons, 1 named Charles Edward.
This name has been passed on for 3 generations.
Andrew H's other son was Doug.
With the names places, there is certainly a
connection, we just have to find out where!:)
