I do remember meeting Jennie Viders once or twice as a small child. I mainly remember her because she was called Schprintzy, an unusual name-- and because she wore a thick black wig for religious reasons. I think she was considered old-fashioned by her sister Ida and my uncles and aunts. I'm willing to be contradicted on any of that. However she's the one I most remember of the Viders family, because of these qualities.

I actually spoke with Julie Schreiber last night. She is the great grand daughter of Jennie. She is going to add some info on our Geni site and I'm going to add our tree to the Ancestry.com site. Pretty neat!

So, Fransesca, do you know why they called her Schprintzy? Was that a nickname or something?
