One thought on “ALEXANDER A. MAASS

  1. Alexander was my great uncle. His mother’s sister was a keutemier or kutemeier. Also spelled kutemeyer, so he would be related to them and they are still in the area. Most of his siblings and parents are buried in the heusing cemetery in rural grant park. One brother, benjamin and his wife are buried in beecher cemetery. He is also related to the rasche family in the area as his brother William married a Rasche sometimes spelled with original spelling of rascher. Thank you for your work on this
