I continue in my struggle to document our ancestor, Isreal G. Dodge, son of John Dodge of Kaskaskia infamy. I have just come to some old letters (1898) saying that many Dodge family papers, possibly on this line, were with :
Mrs. Jennie Dodge Fritschle of 6320 S. Sixth Street, St. Louis
Mrs. Rebecca W. Sire, now 79 years of age, at St. Louis
Any chance that someone out there has inherited and preserved the papers of these two ladies and would be willing to share the information, please?
