I got four more obits for these folks from the Rochester library today. The obit for Otto Heyn shows that he was survived by Edith, "with five daughters, Mrs. Orin Hanson, Mrs. Lloyd Hanson, Mrs. Fred Scott, Mrs. Elmer Siem and Mrs. Leon Town, all of Rochester or vicinity. Eight grandchildren and two brothers, Walter Heyn of Marion and Albert Heyn of Viola, also survive."

The obit for Edith Heyn shows that her "Survivors are five daughters, eight grandchildren and nine brothers and sisters. Daughters are Mrs. Orean Hanson, Mrs. Leon Town, Mrs. Lloyd Hanson, Mrs. Fred Scott and Mrs. Elmer Siem, all of Rochester. Brother and sisters are Henry, Charles and Emil Teske, Mrs. Carl Groth, Mrs. Edward Heyn and William Wenzel of Rochester, Edward Teske of Minneapolis; Mrs. Louis Behnken of Viola and Mrs. Otto Baker of Pine Island."

The obit for Frances Groth shows that she was born in Haverhill Township (in Olmsted county) and died in Rochester, and was survived by husband Carl, "along with two daughters, Miss Dorothy Groth, at home, and Mrs. Howard Kruger of Rochester; four brothers, Charles, Henry and Emil Teske of Rochester and Ed Teske of Fullerton, Calif.; three sisters, Mrs. Otto Baker of Pine Island and Mrs. Ed Heyn and Mrs. Rose Behnken of Viola, and three grandchildren. Two sisters and a half-brother preceded him in death."

The obit for Carl Groth shows that he was born in Fillmore county MN, and died in Rochester, and was a WWI veteran. He was "survived by two daughters, Dorothy and Mrs. Howard (Mildred) Kruger, and two sisters, Mrs. Emma Martinson and Mrs. Thomas Donovan, all of Rochester, and four grandchildren. He was preceded in death by a brother."
