      Thanks Matt and Rosemary,

      Honestly I missed this one.  I didn't read down and see Berkenhoff, and Louise's first name on my family tree is Dorothy.  So I kind of just eased by.  THANK YOU FOR THE HEADS UP.

      The Mitchell surname for this family has been spelled Mitchel, the original spelling, and Mitchell. Elenore Berkenhoff was the daughter of August "Gustav" Berkenhoff and Antoinette Moeller/Moller/ Mueller. Her sister Fredericka is the direct ancestor of Cullis Holub and Rochelle Bubenik Kinter.
