A correction to Howard's information needs to be made. You have Howard's middle name as *Carl and it is *Earl. Howard and Edith lived just 3/4 of a mile from where I grew up on a farm in Sherman Township, Sioux County, Iowa. Howard lived on the farm where his father George lived. It is my understanding by Albertus "Bart" Van Roekel purchased farms for all of his sons and they all lived close to each other in Sherman Township of SIoux County. I think that Dennis and my brother are the only Van Roekel relatives still living on Van Roekel farms purchased by Bart. Howard and Edith's son Dennis now lives on the farm. My brother Robert and his wife live on the farm where I grew up, where my mom was born and where her parents lived. Howard and Edith oldest child, Sharon Van Roekel Plendl and her husband Lee live a little over a mile from my she now lives only two miles from where she grew up.
