I think I remember seeing the surname Engelke posted on the board.

I had cone across the news tidbits because I have a Pieper line in my family who lived in Madison County, Illinois from Worden, Omniphant?, and later Edwardsville.

I remembered seeing Engelke on the list. Also seems like I hve seen the surnames of Engelke, Berendt and Meyer in St. Louis, Mo. and Edwardsville, Illinois not a great distance from St. Louis,..

I thought what the heck... maybe will be of interest to someone.
