This web publication is dedicate to my uncle,
Cletus Guenthner. After my
father died in 1954, when I was 14 years old, Cletus became like a father
to my brother and sister and me. A few years before his death, Cletus
encouraged me to gather Guenthner family information. Although I didn't
start it until years after his death, He will know it was done.
During the past years I have visited many of the family members, attended
small family reunions, funerals, and wedding anniversaries.
I have enjoyed the visits and meeting more of the family and
frankly I am looking forward to many more visits. I have visited many cemeteries to confirm the information we have gathered
from other sources.
Lucille Boehm Rose, and myself started working on the Boehm family
tree some time during 1985. Lucille had started her work some years before.
I want to thank all those that have taken the time to help me in gathering
this information. I also want to thank all those that have trusted me with
their treasured family photos, in order that we may all share them in this
I especially want to thank
William J. (Billy Joe) Guenthner
tremendous help during the research stages.

The Fine Pint
I have tried to be as accurate as possible when entering the data,
however there are bound to be errors, both from my data entry and
from the sources from which I got the information. Most of the information
has been obtained from family and published information as noted above,
none of which guarantee the correctness.
I am publishing this on the web as a tool to find others researching
similar families and maybe provide clues for others doing genealogical
research. Feel free to used the included information for you personal use,
however these pages nor the information included are not to be
copied and sold for a cost.
