Notes: from article in Summer 2006 issue of CARING, newsletter of LCMS WORLD RELIEF, St. Louis, MO, page 10: "Tornado Response - Reaching out in 'cradle of Lutheranism': "Koenig said that 'growing up in this area (Perryville) instilled a deep sense of our Saxon-Lutheran heritage in me; coming back was like getting a 'booster shot.' His father, Robert Koenig, served as a teacher at Perryville High School and pastor at parishes in rural Perry and Cape Girardeau counties and was the author of a novel based on the Saxons' 1839 immigration to the United States, EXCEPT THE CORN DIE.
