These people settled in Creston in 1873 or 1875.They were immigrants from Germany. They lived at 603 Oak in Creston.The men were upholsterers by trade. This property was purchased from the Burlington Railroad by Adolph and Maria DUNST. The DUNST families were 2 of the original 13 families who built the St. John's United Church of Christ
(St. John's Evangelical and Reform Church). If anyone can help me obtain church records or newspaper clippings (Births,deaths,marriages) I would truely appreciate the help. Sincerely, Lynne Boykin

Adolph Dunst was married to Charlotte I. Fischer. Maria Dunst was his daughter and she married Michael Elftmann.
We are descended from Michael and Maria through their daughter Bertha. I have a link to the church; if you are interested, I can send it along.
Nice to have someone in the family to share info with. We are the lost branch of the family because they left out Bertha's son Walter Theodore Frank and have her listed as married to WGFrank instead of WC Frank. Trying to correct whatever we can.
Do you happen to have any info on the ship they came over on? It was called the Columbia and it came to Philadelphia in 1871. I once had the ships passenger list right in front of me and the computer crashed. Lost it all. Any help is appreciated. Your Albert Dunst is listed on there too but cannot remember how old he was.
