My great grandparents Carl and Marie Sandrock immigrated from Germany in 1880 and lived in various Henry County Communities (Annawan, Hooppole).  Carl Sandrock died in 1892 and is buried in Goble Cemetery in Hoopole. My grandmother then lived in Geneseo from 1899 until her death in 1931. I have attached a newspaper article about her, along with the transcript of the article. The article is from 1929 (she was born in 1849 and the article says she is 80). I've attached a 2nd picture of her, ca. 1930. Also my grandmother Lena Johanna Sandrock's confirmation picture, ca. 1903.
