Subject: Re: Sarah M Murrell> Hi Kari & Hi Jane, Guess we are cousins of sorts. Michael Augustine Busch is my Great Grand Father. From what I am now hearing from my cousins who knew the line Michael and Sara never had any kids them selves. This is a work in progress because I just discovered, Sat 9 Mar, that Michael Busch married again after Anna passed away. My dad is 94 and has never mentioned this to me so it was kinda suprised when I found them on the 1920 census. Fired off some email and sure enough they were married. Here is what I have so far and more is coming.

> Hi Kari,
> Love what you have on your site. Thanks for sharing. In the letters from Stella's daughter she says Alta Fern married George Leach first and then a man named Moore. Her and George had one son, George Francis. She died August 10, 1937, Wichita, Ks. Her obit says T. E. Moore was her husband.
>
> In 1945 Hattie was listed in her Mother's obit as Mrs. E. M. Abbett and in June 1953 in Grandpa Michael Busch's obit she is listed as Mrs. Hattie Huenergardt. Both have her living in Wichita, Ks. so I would assume she was married here. I'm not sure if we can still search the records but I will check. I know they said on divorce records we couldn't search unless we knew the exact date. That was what I wanted to find out on my Dad.
