Sympathy Saturday - John Drees

On February 8, 1910, John Drees died. He was married to Agnes Anna Meyer, daughter of Heinrich "Anton" Meyer and his first wife, Elizabeth Decker. Agnes was a half sister to my great grandfather, Joseph Francis Meyer.

  1. The German part of my family comes from the former Duchy of Oldenburg in northwestern Germany. The surnames you mention in this post are ALL from that area. Are you aware of their roots?

  2. Thanks, Kathy. I did know the Meyer family was from there. I'm not that concerned with the Drees line going back.
