- Did your Michael Jonen die in 1925 in Fussville (west of Granville)? There were multiple death notices for a Michael Jonen in local German newspapers. A Michael Jonen also received a couple of letters postmarked from Cöln (aka Köln, or Cologne, Germany) in 1864 and 1865. They were listed in the German papers prior to being returned to the sender (or picked up by the addressee). There are about 30 occurrences of Jonen indexed in "Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items" (1844-1950). But there's no current match for an Anna Cremer Jonen.
- No entries for the surname Schicker.
- These papers have death notices, obits. or other biographical clippings for a Johann Behling in: 1881, 1892, 1897, 1898, 1899, 1900, 1904, 1911, 1915, 1923, 1925, 1927.
