"On one of Kathy’s visits home that fall, she asked her mother, “What is our heritage?” To which her mother replied, “Why honey, you’re a Texan!” I am not sure that was the answer Kathy was looking for, but, to my knowledge, she never questioned her mother’s response. However, at that time I decided that some day I would research our Kale Family history so Kathy would know her family heritage beyond being a proud Texan.
I hope she and her children, Julia Marie Routh and John Michael Routh, will come to appreciate their German heritage after reading about the Kehls who came to America in 1731. They and their descendents helped form this great nation."
