Thank you for the correction. I have not looked on this website for a long time (obviously)and changed email address, guess I didn't update it at familyoldphotos. Joshua Spindler of Westminster, Colorado, shared several photos & other info on the Bartels/Spindler family with me. Joshua passed away in July 2010. He was a grandson of Chester Spindler. Did you know him? Would be happy to exchange the info/photos if you are interested. My great-grandmother was Emma Bartels Patterson, Maggie's youngest sibling.

Hope to hear from you
