Reverse those names
A Casefile Clues reader pointed out that Geske Fecht's husband Boede Heien is in the Macoupin County Coroner's Index at the Illinois State Archives website under the name of Heien Boede. It pays to search for non-English names backwards as well as forwards. If there is interest in what the records on Boede say, I'll get them from the Archives and include in an upcoming issue of Casefile Clues. Just post here or let me know.
