My grandmother was Minnie Kreger. Her husband, Emil, was my grandfather. Does anyone know anything about them? Are there relatives still living in the area?

If you go to this link . . .http://earlyeatonvillewa.blogspot.com/p/chapter-1-shepherds-and-settlers-deans.html
you’ll find some information on the Kreger family. Just scroll down a bit. It starts after the picture of the little girl sitting next to a bear. (It’ll make sense when you go there.) I hope this helps a bit. 🙂
