Welcome to the Struve/Gruhn connection

Thanks to Glenda Struve Baker from Alabama for preserving and sharing these photos and information.

Please go to the next web page to find information provided by Kevin Struve.

Dora Gruhn married George Struve.
These are Glenda Struve's grandparents and Fern (Struve) Jensen's parents.

Note: there is another George Struve from that generation but he is not connected --- he would be Roy Struve's family.
