Interested in the Hegners who attended this funeral in Fond du Lac WI. Does anyone know the date, and whether the Hegners were related to Margaret O'Brien?

My great aunt, Florence O'Brien (Margaret's daughter) married William Hegner.

I have not only the date of their wedding but the newspaper article. My father was an altar boy in the wedding.

I've traced this line down to the youngest living Wm (Billy) Hegner in Wisconsin.

If you'd like me to send you the Hegner article and dates, please contact me at

Hi Kay,

I was wondering why you posted this obit. Do you know these people? Margaret was my great grandmother and I'm having a heck of a time finding any of her family.

Florence O'Brien was my grandmother. She had married George T. Hegner (not William Hegner), my grandfather. She was one of Margaret O'Brien's daughters. William Billy Hegner is the name of my father and William Hegner is also the name of my great grandfather who was married to Mary Ann King. So, the Mrs. William Hegner referred to in the message board must have been Mary Ann King Hegner.
I would love to receive the Hegner article (if it's about great grandmother O'Brien's funeral) and dates. I already have
an article on my grandparents (Florence and George Hegner's wedding.)
