Surnames: FREEMAN, BARFKNECHT, PARKER, VANDERWITTERING
Looking for any PARKER, FREEMAN, BARFKNECHT, or VANDERWITTERING in Rusk Co. I know that the FREEMANS and VANDERWITTERINGS were in Brown Co as well.
Anything is appreciated!
Thanks!

Barfnecht

Recently ran across a obit from the Ladysmith News, regarding an Emil Barfnecht. This may help you in your search. The Ladysmith News has an Internet Web Site (unbelievable for the size of the town), which is easily accessible. Hope this helps. Incidently, the Parker name appears in my family tree. I haven't looked lately, but the name is either Ida or Martha.

Emil Barfknecht's wife, Laura (nee Hall) Barfknecht, was my great aunt. She wrote a family history of her mother's family (Lexia Earl Hall.)

Thanks for the message Nicole. We are related through marriage -- that is, through your great grandfather, Paul Barfknecht. Paul's brother, Emil Barfknecht, married my great aunt, Laura Hall in 1905. Since your great grandfather was Paul Barfknecht, what was the first name of your grandfather -- was it Wilson, Glenn, or Walter?

My father, Herb Tonnell (1907-1987), was a life-long friend of Floyd Barfknecht (1906-1984), Emil & Laura's oldest son.
