I was born & raised in Granville, Iowa, the same as your father Urban, your siblings & your grandparents Joseph & Anna Weiskircher. I've been researching the Weiskircher name as my husband's grandmother was Catherine Weiskircher married to John L Sauer. Catherine had a brother Joseph (your grandfather) who was married to Anna Jemming. Catherine & Joseph's parents were Peter & Catherine (Kreer).
There is another family (Peter & Elizabeth Kreer). They had a son Peter Jr married to Mary ? who had a daughter Elizabeth who married Herman Ahlers who also lived in Granville. I'm trying to find out if/how they two Peter's are related. Years ago, the family named so many children the same name that it is hard to figure out who belongs to who. My father, Arnold Muehl was a good friend of your uncle Ambrose (I think his nickname was "Bush")
My husband's parents, Joe & Emma Sauer, talked a lot about Salome & Hildegard.
I'd be happy to hear from you. Maybe you would have some answers. If you would like to contact me by e-mail, my address is email@example.com
