Object ID:
2016.86
Description:
This is the third wife of Andreas Loos. It has been very difficult to find who is the blood relative to who on this line.

Andreas' first wife was Magdelena Heiling back in Austria-Hungary. She passed away before he came to the United States.

He then married Katherina Tischler about 1876 right before they came over. She passed away shortly after in 1881. She is buried in St. Mary's cemetery just south of Fran Sommer's old farm in what was known as Dakota City.

To this point, who's child is whose is an issue yet.

Then came Theresa Thuringer in 1882. I do know since my Great Grandmother Amelia Loos (Fuhrman) was born in 1886, that Andreas and Theresa (Thuringer) are her parents.

Date taken:
circa 1890
