DIETZ family: I'm looking for the family of Rena (Rene?) Dietz (b. 1868) in Ill. Her siblings were Rhoda, Anna (Foster), Lida (Mitchell) and Verda (Verdella Morel). I believe I found Verda in the Praire Farmer's Dir. posted on this site. Verda married Edward Morel and lived in Somonauk. I believe the rest of this family lived in and around Somonauk. Before joining her husband, Clarence HUNE in Forest,Hardin County, Ohio, Rena had a child, Myrtle, who was raised by Anna Foster. The patriarch of the Dietz family is rumored to have committed suicide upon his wife's death. I am looking for information that will lead to the discovery of the identity of Rena's parents. Thanks!
