This last name ties my families together: Wyburn, Fishnick, Eberle, and Blaul.
I cannot leave out the name of Thomas Jordan because without him and his wife Mary AnnWhiteside there wouldn't be an Indian Kate, otherwise known as Catherine Jordan Eberle. If he hadn't been there to take "Katie" in she would have either died in the massacre at Bad Axe, or been captured along with other family members and taken to a reservation to live out her life. Perhaps marry another Sauk Indian, have many children, and fade into the annuals of time.
