I know there are a lot of Kruegers in Wausau, but the reason I noted this one is that Harvey Krueger had talked earlier that day about “going out to Borchardt’s” to visit Krueger relatives out there when he was a boy.  He watched the cattle for them during the summer.  No idea how August and Emily Borchard fit in to our family, or even if they do.  Just noting what Harvey said.  I got the impression from the discussion that these were Kruegers from the Carl Bertold Krueger side of the family.

Seeking to bring my ancestors out of the shadows of history and into the light. I have always been interested in history, and at a few different times I tried to do a family tree, but wasn't able to do it with the technology that was available then. On a business trip I visited the World War I Museum in Kansas City, MO and it was a very impressive establishment. While I was there I remember thinking, "Didn't my great-grandfather father fight in World War I? And wasn't his brother killed alongside him in some famous battle? I wonder if I can find out where he died." That's what started it all. View all posts by cthomas1967
