Zelda Zeuge Dubel had ancestors named Toedt(mann) who lived in
Holzhausen-Externsteine and worshipped at the Evangelical Reformed
(protestant) church at Horn. Archives are in nearby Detmold. Her ancestor
Johann Toedt (1800-1873) married Sophia Schaefer who was the widow of Johann
Christoph Brehe. In accordance with the custom of that time and location,
he changed his name to Conrad Brehe. They emigrated to Franklin Co, MO
about 1847. By coincidence, another Conrad E. Brehe emigrated to Gasconade
Co, MO about 1843 and he was probably related to Sophia's first husband.
Other relatives who retained the surname Toedt came to Illinois and Iowa.
Zelda's research covers the genealogy of all these branches as known to her to the
present time. Information came from the church record books in Horn and the
archives in Detmold. There are 2365 names. She spent 32 years in research.
