Sophia Elizabeth Derle 1808-1877
This is just to see if I can post a picture without any difficulty. This picture is taken from an oil portrait done of my 3rd great-grandmother, Sophia Elizabeth Derle Trautvetter (1808-1877). She was born in Thuringen, Germany and died in Walker Township, Hancock County, Illinois, in 1877. I'm always happy to hear from anyone researching the Trautvetter or Derle families.
