Side Note: I have been working on the Krepsky family and have lots of additional information. An August Krepsky moved to Colby with his family in 1892 and ran a hardware store there. I have not found very much on this family and I am looking for someone to take pictures of the gravesites in Colby Cemetery. I do know they are related to the Holtzhousens in the area. Carl was married to Gusta and they had a son Alvin who had a son David who had a son Daniel. I believe David and Daniel are still living. Is there someone I can contact who will research for me or take pictures. I am willing to pay or donate. I live in Dearborn, Michigan and when I do get to Wisconsin I have only mad it to Kohler and Sheboygan where the rest of the family lived. Linell Krepsky Jenks
