The information on this web site has been gathered from many different sources over a 40 year time period. I have most of the original letters from ancestors of Karl Frederick and Charles August, these letters were personal letters to myself or John Otto Tinius.  A number of letters have information that I will not publish on this web site as it contain dates and other personal data. If you would like copies of these they will be provided upon request. Some of the data was gotten from the National Archives and is on legal size paper.
