~Even though I have a lot of people in my family tree, I also have a lot of "holes" that need more research. Over the next few months, I am going to attempt to patch up those holes by doing research one person at a time- starting at the beginning of the list~

Her parents were Stainslaus Weis (1818-1858) and Magdalena Studer (1819-1914). She had 6 siblings: Magdalena (b. 1842), Louisa (b. 1844), Joseph (b. 1846), Sarah (b. 1849), John Aloysius (b. 1854), and Leodegarda K (b. 1856).

Barbara married Johann "John" Houdick and they had at least one daughter- Anna F. Houdick (1870-1933). Anna married Gerhard Bernhard Jackering (1845-1922).
I wasn't able to find too much on Barbara- just that she was born on 04 Dec 1844 and died on 20 Feb 1910 in Germany. She married Johann "John" Houdick (1839-1912) and they had at least one daughter- Anna.

I wasn't able to find too much on Barbara because it appears that she is still living- findings are limited. I did find out that her middle name is Florence and she was married on 10 May 1971 in Polk County, Minnesota.
Barbara was born in 1849 in Germany and died on 11 Jun 1915 in Dayton, Ohio. She married Constantine Schreck (1851-1931) and they had at least 1 daughter- Clara E. (1888-1946)- she married Elmer Louis Fenelon (1888-1970).
I wasn't able to find Barbara's maiden name (Yet), but I did find out that she was married in 1875 and her and Constantine had 5 children:
