"I do have information on Ottilda Stoll (her given name). The family did refer to her as Ottillie and spelled it every way imaginable! She was born 10 Oct 1880 in Alma, Lafayette County, MO and died 27 Jan 1925 and is buried at the Idlewild Cemetary in Hood River, Hood River County, OR. Her father was August Stoll, born 11 Jan 1843, in Brumburg, Germany. He died 19 Mar 1925 in Higginsville MO and is buried in Concordia, MO. Her mother is Henrietta Bessert Stoll, born 5 May 1845 in Brumburg, Germany. Henrietta and August married May 1870 in Brumburg. She died 19 Dec 1924 in Higginsville, MO and is also buried in Concordia, MO.

Fritz Zweigart was actually Fred Phillip Zweigart but was called Fritz most of his life. He was born 17 Oct 1867 in Cedar Hill MO and died 3 June 1957 in Cleburne TX.

Linda sent this scan and description:

The two children in the front (left to right) Dewey's daughter Marge and his youngest brother, Clarence. The middle row (left to right) Dewey, his sister Gertrude who is holding Dewey and Gertrude's youngest sister, Marianna. Next to Gertrude is Robert. (Robert is Dewey's son who died at age 11). To the right of Robert is Ottilda Stoll Zweigart and her 2nd from the youngest son, Henry. Behind the middle row, left to right is Sherman, the middle son of Ottilda, and Fred "Fritz" Zweigart. The photo was taken in Oregon.

Terresa Stoll wrote that she is a granddaughter of Ottilda Stoll Zweigart’s brother Ed and his wife Meta Holke Stoll. She made some corrections to the information above where it says that her Grandpa and Grandma’s dates of death were unknown. Edward Stoll died on August 2, 1978 and his wife, Meta Holke Stoll died July 22, 1974. They are buried in the Blackburn, MO cemetery. Terresa tells that although it has been said that Ed was born in Alma, actually he was born on the family farm outside of Concordia, MO. She tells that between Concordia and Alma there was an area called Stollville. It was on or near Great Grandpa’s farm where most of the children were probably born. Since there is not a trace of Stollville any more, she says that either Alma or Concordia could be named the place of birth. Edward had bought a farm northeast of Alma and that was where Meta gave birth to their 8 children.
