Hi Betty,

Just curious if you ever found additional information on the original Hargrafen family from Germany. My Gr-Gr-Gr Grandparents (Henry & Elizabeth Holdgrafer and their four sons) also originally settled in Jo Davies County about 1846-7). I have not had any success tracing the Holdgrafer family back to Hanover/Germany, and I'm guessing that our last name possibily changed spelling at some point. It might be coincidence that both families settled in JoDavies County, IL, but maybe there is a family connection here too. The four Holdgrafer son all eventually settled in Iowa (around Clinton and Haverhill) and there are now decendants around the U.S., with concentrations in Iowa, Minnesota, Califronia, and Texas. Please let me know if you have any more information that you're willing to share. Thanks.
