Query: am looking for any information on the Delling family, Manoah (son) and Luther (father) are the men. Manoah married Marie Havre in 1909 in Brownsville. He had a sister named Rosebud who died in 1914. I don't know if she lived in Webb County or not. She would have been about 24 years old and I think she may have died in childbirth as the photos of her taken around that time show her as pregnant. Thanks for the help. Jean Cunningham.

Query: MY husband Robert Henry Wildt Jr's father Robert H. Wildt died in your city March 29, 1961. He was born in 1891 in Louisville,Jefferson Cnty,Ky. His body was shipped to Louisville,Jefferson.Ky for burial at Cave Hill Cemetery. Do you keep records of deaths and where a body was shipped for burial? There is mention of Miller Funeral Home, but don't know id it was in Laredo or if it was in Louisville. I would like to have copies if you do as I'm working on family genealogy and there is no one to ask. My husband didn't know much about his father, because the divorce was not friendly.and his mother wouldn't allow him to comunicate with his father. He also had a daughter named Mary by first wife Julia. If you would e-mail me direct if this is or is not possible I would greatly appreciate it. I am 74 and would like to leave some notes on Mr. Wildt for our gandchildren and great grandchildren. My husband Robert Henry Wildt Jr. died Dec 11, 2004 here in Ft.Worth,Tarrant,County, Tx.
