Basic descendent tree.
I had to re-create the Oelberg tree from collected material, personal knowledge, online data,
census, burial info so there are speculations and best guesses.
The tree can be added too or corrected should anyone want to copy/paste/email info.

Do not trust as totally valid any tree/report data.  Often World Connect or Ancestry trees/data was utilized as a foundation upon which to add material gleamed from obits, articles, histories, biographies, stories, burials, censuses and other data collected.  My primary interest is generally the pioneer history and includes linking village and neighborhood surnames together for  several of the early generations.  Family connections, locations and other data may have to be speculated in order to continue a complex series of inter-related projects.  My web pages are primarily personal study projects for note keeping, but can also jump start others.  I have a huge number of projects started and rarely return to edit/update material unless interest is rekindled.  Any web pages online are usually linked off the 'Index Page.'  Numerous projects are not put on web pages but are in draft form or in the form of photo albums on the 'Photo Hosting Site.'   I may have material for research use in storage, plus will/can upload other people's material if appropriate.
