Looking for family who have lived in Carlinville, Macoupin, Illinois. Descendants of Henry and Christina Schapp Schwerdfeger. I have seen that some of their children were born there and remain there while others moved to Kansas. The children are Elizabeth, Frank, Carrie, Henry P., Charles (alternate spelling Charlie, Chas,) and possible one other son George. I am just trying to trace the genealogy of the family and it seems to go back forth between Kansas and Illinois in particular Carlinville, Macoupin, Illinois. I have articles from Macoupin County Enquirer indicating that at least Charles and Henry P.. There is indication Henry P. children moved there and stayed and later his wife would move their living with her daughter and son in law. As their is article detailing a surprise birthday for her. Of particular interest is one marriage between Louis Fricke and Elizabeth Schwerdfeger who would move later to Wichita. I have not yet found a copy of their marriage license or record of marriage except in 1880 census in Wichita. The Schwerdfeger family was shown to be living there in 1870s census and several of the children are born their. The census taker however spelt the name Schwertfeger. And the names of the children in the Enquirer is also spelled Schwertfeger.
