Hi Pat,

I'm not related, though I do remember a Heather Hoptry from my days at Rock Hill. I was researching other families and came across this obituary. I knew it would be important to someone as it provided a town of birth for the deceased. I just wish that the microfilm run of this and the other Ironton German newspaper covered the years my ancestors died.

I am investigating the possibility that some of my ancestors came from Udenhausen or somewhere close by. Apollonia Kimmel Schäffer, my 3rd great grandmother, was born in Hessen, as were her probable siblings Peter Kimmel and Gertraud Kimmel Schug, all of whom emigrated to Lawrence Co in the 1850s. Perhaps the Kimmels were part of a larger migratory group from Hessen.

Regardless, I'm hoping to work with these newspapers more and see if anything else turns up, for me or anyone else. Hopefully Briggs will mail you a copy of the obit.

I would be interested in corresponding with you on German and Lawrence County research. You can reach me directly at

Looking forward to hearing from you again.
