|Henry Lincoln Kuck|
Recently, based upon discovering new to me information about another relative using google search, I thought I might do a little research into this brick wall and see if I can't rattle a brick or two loose. I have done exhaustive research on one of her surviving two sons, George Kuck who is my 2nd great grandfather and I have done quite a bit about the other surviving son, Henry Kuck. However, George Kuck was a proprietor of a grocery store and Henry Kuck moved out west becoming a noted saddle maker, mayor, councilman and state senator. I figured if anyone had something written about who his mom's parents were it would be him. So I googled him.

Anyway, the google search led me to this book on Ernie and I quickly had it ordered via Amazon and it should have arrived two days after I wrote this entry. I'm sure I'll write more on the subject after reading the book. I immediately started searching for the author and found out that Ernie was an uncle through marriage to her which is why she wrote the book. Already I'm thinking of all the stories I might learn if I could get in contact with her. I searched for an address, email, phone number but wasn't having any luck until I pulled up one more link, her obituary. She died 363 days earlier. I just missed her by less than a year.
The book has another author listed as a co-author whom I am guessing helped her write and edit portions of the book and I haven't given up the thought of perhaps trying to contact her. But I think I will at least wait and see what information I might glean from the book and see if perhaps there is any information about Ernie's grandmother Mary, my brick wall ancestor and the only 3rd great grandparent whose parents I can't identify by name.
