John Crispin Pecht and Amanda Melvina Stover
Valentine's Day seems like a good time to recognize the wedding of my great-great grandparents, John Crispin Pecht and Amanda Melvina Stover. They were married in Lena, Stephenson County, Illinois on September 6, 1859.
From Illinois, they moved their family to the area of Republic and Jewell counties in Kansas, across the state line from Hardy, in Nuckolls County, Nebraska.
Their children were Albert Blair Pecht, Cora Belle Pecht (Beal), Edmund Pecht, Sherman Ellsworth Pecht, Mira Estella Pecht (died as an infant), Leroy Pearl Pecht (my great grandfather), and Lottie May Pecht (Kiler). Another child died as an infant.
