I'm glad you answered, I knew Jennie had daughter
but she had said you were in Germany.(?)
This was a few years ago before Jennie's
father died. We knew he was ill, and my sister
Dorothy and I visited him, and also went to
church with your mother and father.
I will be glad to help you all I can with the
Stephens records that I have. e-mail me at

Surnames: Bezold, Betzold
Do you know the name of your grandfather or great-grandfather. A 1918 a Barbara Betzold (Bezold) Zapf died in Montgomery Co., IL She had no children. Probate records listed many nieces & nephews, one being listed as: John C. Bezold, nephew (son of J. L. Bezold) Chicago, IL 526, Ins. Exchange Bldg; Jackson and South Wells St. I've been trying to locate this individual for my family tree. All are descendants of Leonard Bezold (Betzold) who landed in the Madison Co. area from Germany around 1850's.

My grandfather's name was William C Bezold. He was born 21 June 1921 and died 19 May 1999. I think he was an only child, but I am not sure. He married Jean E Jurek(?).

Do you know the name of your grandfather's parents? Where did they or your grandfather live &/or die? I have a William C. Bezold in my database, but he was in WWI in 1918 which would make him too old to be your great grandfather. See below.

Probate Record, E.100 was located at Hillsboro, IL, Montgomery Co.
A copy of the Probate record listing all the heirs of Barbara Betzold Zopf was in a sealed envelope addressed to the following. All were returned, undeliverable. John Bezold & C. Bezold, West Frankfort, IL; Margaret Henney (??), 210 West 2nd St., Muscatine, Iowa; Sophia Metzger, Pana, IL; Julia Bezold, Denver, CO.
Among the heirs was William C. Bezold. He had a letter stating he was in the military service of the U.S. and appointed Myrtle B. Wood, City of St. Louis, MO as his Power of Attorney in all matters of the estate of Barbara Zopf. He signed in on Sept. 5, 1918.

My grandfather was William C Bezold Jr. He was born in 1921 and lived in Chicago, Cook county, Illinois. The 1930 census lists 2 William C Bezolds living in Cook county, one of them 8 years old and the other 32. I am pretty sure that the other William C Bezold is my grandfathers father. That would make his birth year to be in 1898.
