Ken Zubrod and family in their own words

Since the Zubrod family has more Templeton connections, I don't have as many Zubrod pictures or for some of the other children of Louis & Louise, but I thought at least what I feature here will help Manning connected people know who Ken is.

Megan & Matt are the children of Ken Zubrod & Diane Loeffelholz who was originally from Halbur, Iowa. Diane's parents were Walter Loeffelholz & Helen Halbur...she had 5 sibings.
Walt & Helen also connect to the Leiting and Steffes families of the area.
