Osterhoudt Family References and Other Data

NOTE: This is a collection of documents I found or were sent to me while investigating Elmer Osterhoudt. Details such as names, dates, and addresses can be gleaned from them. It is not a complete record of the Osterhoudt family, nor is it meant to be.

NOTE 2: On July 12, 1973, a fire at the Military Personal Records Center in Overland, Missouri, destroyed 18 million files. Elmer's WWI and WWII records seem to be among the missing.
