Frederich Christian Pothast is my GGGrandfather. He married Caroline Wedeward (Wedewart). I was in contact with the Wedeward whose Father owned the Jewelry store in Baraboo, Wisc. I believe his or his son's name was Oliver Wedeward. I have the information at my home in Colorado.that he sent me. I didn't know Wilhelmine (Schroeder, Schrader)Pothast remarried. I thought she died and I was looking for where she was buried.
Caroline Wedeward died 10 Aug. 1906 in Waverly, Iowa. I have pictures of their grave at St Pauls Cemetery. I have the Wedeward's back to 1742 in Prussia. Maybe you can help we and I can help you. I see one of your responses was from Kathie. She is a cousin of mine.
