I am working on this family as well, but I'm kind of new to all of this. My Father is Ward Freese. His parents were Alfred Freese and Claire Estelle Dahmer. Claire's parents were Charles Dahmer and Eliza Ward. It sounds like you know the same info I know going back from here. I received a copy of the same info on the Ward family from my Aunt Delores. Good Luck and let me know if you have any breakthroughs!
