My ancestor, Regina Litzo Nagel, lived in that area in the 1880's-- marrying Christopher Heckenliable circa 1880. Looking for any info on this marriage or this Heckenliable family. They did not have children together, but believe Chris' descendants still live in the area. The pictures depict how beautiful Hutchinson county remains today. Thanks for sharing!
