Surname: Schroeder, Becker, Broetzman, Leasette, Kreiser, Meyer, Myers, Westphal, Rasmussen, Bourassa, Elliott, Sellen, Cross

I'm researching this line for a direct descendant of this August H. Schroeder. The family lines noted below and the surnames noted above that link with this August Schroeder have either been born, died or lived in Oconto County, Wisconsin. It seems as though this August married a few times. I have a list of his children but it is unclear as to which wife they belong to, perhaps you could assist? I would appreciate any help in correcting this data and especially spelling of names. Thank You!
