My great grandmother was Mary Amelia Florin. She was born Dec. 1, 1869 in Highland, Illinois. She married William Howard, son of George Howard, on Oct. 25, 1888. They later moved to Kansas. Mary Amelia had two brothers, Joe and Peter Florin. I don't know what happened to the brothers. Mary Amelia's mother was also named Mary, but I don't know her maiden name. I don't know if Florin is spelled Florine or Florin. Mary Amelia's mother later became a widow, for some reason I feel her husband was killed in the Civil War. Then Mary Amelia's mother married a man named Jacob Geppert and they had 3 more children, Jac, Josie and Ella. I think Josie married a man named Baer and had two children named Elmer and Laura, but Ella never married. If you have an information, please email me.
