Uehlein Family Missing Links

edited by Mike Reilly

Family Connection?

A family story tells of a 'Rich Aunt from America'  who used to visit her family in Marktzeuln, Bayern-Oberfrankau, Germany, around 1900.  She is supposed to have connections with the Schlitz brewery.  Her name is possibly Ruppert, or Stocker, or Stettner. 

Do you have any information that could relate to her?  This is a bit if a long shot on a family trail!!!
