8.  Email from Patrick Strabala:
My Spenner family emigrated through New Orleans - St. Louis - (and my line) to Iowa. I believe the Katrine Spoener is a sister of my ancestor, John Spenner.

Katharina Spenner, daughter of Johannes Adam Spenner and Gertraud Diehl [Diel] was born 2 Apr 1825 Todenhausen, Hessen-Kassel; she emigrated in 1841 with her parents.
