Milwaukee's German papers also picked up the 1928 obit. for Sophia Hillebrand Potthast. A Friedrich Potthast (very likely her husband) received letters in Milwaukee from Bremen and Neustad on the Rhine River in the 1860s. The German papers reported them being held at the post office pending their being sent back to the sender.
