I'm looking for info on the Spitzmesser's from the Elwood area. My grandmothers second husband was William Alvin Spitzmesser and she was Vivian Spitzmesser. They lived in Elwood in the late 1940's .I have been told that Alvin had alot of family in that area. I know very little about him but I was told that he was a carpenter. He also walked with a very bad limp due to one leg being shorter than the other.
