Note: The following is email received from Maurice Ness regarding the Wernke/Ritz Family: Hi, I finally downloaded both files and put each into Family Tree Maker to read and view. It worked like it is suppose to, it went perfect. One of the first things I looked into was my great grandfather Fred Ritz that went to Blaine Co. Oklahoma with Bernard Heying from Salem, South Dakota. I have the township where they settled there. I noticed that you have Fred's death the same date as his marriage to Mary Heying in Iowa. I am hoping it was a typing error and that you actually have it. Also you have Joseph Heying who is Bernard's son listed as dying Jan 18, 1957 but no location. He was with his parents in the census in Blaine Co. earlier. I am really interested in the Oklahoma branch of Heying's that vanished. Fred Ritz had to leave Luxemburg, Iowa because of a debt. The court was after him. Mary Heying had been married to Wernke and the will left everything to the two Wernke children. So when Mary died Fred lost the farm and had the debt for it so he had to run. Bernard, his brother in law, took him up to Salem then in a few years they went to Oklahoma. That is when they fell out of sight. So I am interested in Joseph death info you have and Fred's death date. It is going to be interesting to go thru your work. If you come across anything let me know, Thanks again, Maurice Information regarding place of death and burial was obtained from a letter from Marie Wernke.
