I have been nosing around the Clark Co genealogy website and found cemetery listing for my g-g-grandparents August Theodore Lehrman and Friedericke Emilia Lehrman. Your notes showed one source for both as the Neillsville Court House record. Now that I know her first name is Freidericke, I have found the obit on the website for  the woman I have known as Emilie. Do you have a copy of the Neillsville court house records for the two of them or can you tell me where I can find it?  Janet Cuneo
