Looking for history...
By William J. Zimmer

I am trying to find out some history on my great uncle Albert Christian Kreidler, who left Kentucky in 1897 for the Klondike gold rush. He prospected for some 25 years and then settled in Ketchikan and formed a construction/sand/gravel company. He lived in Ketchikan until 1948 and then retired to Florida. I met him on two occasions when he visited his sister Mary Bueter who was my grandmother and who lived with us. I am writing something about his life because, not having any children himself, his remembrance might be lost in our family. I am writing to ask if you have any information or stories about his life in Ketchikan. I will appreciate any information that you have.

Cordially and Thanks,

William J. Zimmer
