Leisa, I just read your post of 23 Aug 2017. I do not check Ancestry posts very often. If you would like to contact either me or my wife Judy you could write emails to Judy at email@example.com
or myself at firstname.lastname@example.org
. We check emails daily. We would like to have the stories that you spoke of written up to include in our local genealogy club journal.
I suppose that you are aware that there is no sign of a settlement being at the site of old Hamburg. Dale Tracy
