I have information about Casper Walkenhorst of Cincinnati, Ohio. In researching my great-grandfather, Frank Henry Walkenhorst (went by Henry), I have copied a lot that I have found about other Walkenhorsts as possible relations. Here is what I have about Casper H. Walkenhorst:

(These are from the list of Walkenhorsts buried at Vine Street Hill Cemetery. The man there said that if the grave sites are the same, then the people are part of the same family. All of these people have the same site [4 296], as Casper.
I think that Casper may be Frank Henry Walkenhorst's father, which would make him my g-g-g-grandfather.
Frank Henry was born in Prussia in 1851. I am trying to find information about when he migrated and who his parents were.
Frank Henry Walkenhorst married Elizabeth (Lizzie) Kuhn. Their children were Maggie, Clara, Mamie, Edward, and Albert.
Albert Walkenhorst married Josephine (McGraw or McGrew). (They are also buried at Vine Street Hill Cem.) Thier children were Elizabeth, Margaret, and Albert Jr. (Bud.)
Elizabeth H. Walkenhorst married Edward Gross. Thier children are Nancy and Roger.
Roger is my father.
If you think there may be a possible relation, or if you are interested in some of my research, just let me know.
