Hello Jim, Sorry I am so slow getting back to you but I wanted to double check with the Holstein Centennial book to make sure my memory and the dates worked together. I was excited to see this picnic picture of the Goettsch family. I don't remember my parents talking about all the extended family.
I can add a few names to faces in the picture. I am #64 Donna Goettsch Willems sitting on my mother's lap. #65 is Lois Goettsch Fouts daughter of Walter and Lillian Goettsch. Her husband is #7 Harley Fouts. #59 is Alan Kuchel son of Winnie and Lowell Kuchel who is #7. Alan was born Sept. 21, 1947. His sister Linda was born April 29, 1950. I too believe this picture was taken in 1948. #66 is Bruce Klotz son of Lois and Clifton Klotz. He was born December 6, 1947. Sorry I can't be of help in identifying more of the people in the picture.
I guess this would be a shot in the dark looking for a living relative of Edward B. Goettsch. Have you tried to find a living relative of Ralph's wife Hilda Henry whose parents were listed in the obit. as Laurent Henry maybe from Dixon, Ill. A relative of hers might know what happened to the rest of Edward's family.
Let me know if this has been any help to you.
As Always, Donna Willems
