Sharon: I'm seeing this post after I responded to your email responding to mine. It seems the divorce took over two years to finalize. Meanwhile, Peter and Bertha had had at least two and possible three children out of wedlock.
One point of confusion: Emil? Is that the same child I see in the records as Louie or Louis? I'm seeing him on 6 May 1894. Are we talking about the same person?
I covered other details in my email to you.
