1000 Emigrants To America From The District Of Harsefeld

 These emigrants (from the 1850s to about 1939) came from the former administrative units called “Amt Harsefeld” and Himmelpforten, i.e. the area more or less constituted by the parishes of Bargstedt, Harsefeld, Ahlerstedt, Bliedersdorf , Neukloster, Apensen and Mulsum. 

Sources for the names and data are the state archives of Stade (especially the applications for emigration), the passenger lists and last but not least all those researchers who have made the result of their research public on the internet and whose names are far too numerous to mention them all. Thanks a lot!

Much is still to do to complete the emigrants´ curricula vitae and I would appreciate anything that can help me do so including corrections.

(From:http://worldconnect.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=schlue_jahns&id=I08351)

The following is from "Past & Present of Platte County, Nebraska - Volume II" (pp 611 - 612), published by the S. J. Clarke Publishing Co., Chicago, in 1915:

"HENRY ALPERS - Henry Alpers is conducting a growing and profitable business as a painter and decorator at Columbus, the excellence of his work insuring him a liberal patronage. Laudable ambition has prompted him to put forth earnest and persistent effort, while a courageous spirit has enabled him to overcome all difficulties and obstacles in his path.

Mr. Alpers is a native of Hanover, Germany. He was born February 3, 1878, and is the fourth in order of birth in a family of five children, whose parents were Henry and Rebecca (Pape) Alpers. Ere leaving his native country he learned the cabinetmaker's trade and in 1901, attracted by the business opportunities of the new world, he came to the United States, making his way at once to Nebraska, where he worked as a carpenter near Columbus. He was then about twenty-three years of age. Subsequently he was employed as a carpenter on a hospital at Columbus, while for nine months he worked in the Columbus Planing Mill. He afterward spent five and a half years in a furniture store as salesman and repair man and on the expiration of that period turned his attention to the painting and decorating business, in which he has since been engaged. At first his patronage came largely from the surrounding country but as the years have gone by he has developed a large city business which has been steadily increasing and is now one of very gratifying and desirable proportions. Most of his previous experience constituted the preparation for his work in these lines and that the results of his labors are highly satisfactory to his patrons is shown in his constantly increasing trade.

In 1901 Mr. Alpers was married in Germany to Miss Emma Albers, a daughter of Henry Albers, and they have become parents of three children, Hugo, Werner and Arthur, The religious faith of the family is that of the German Lutheran church, while in political belief Mr. Alpers is independent, voting according to the dictates of his judgment, based upon the demand of the time. The family occupy a large and attractive modern residence and in addition Mr. Alpers owns a well equipped shop. He has never had occasion to regret his determination to come to the new world, for here he has found the opportunities which he sought. He brought with him no false idea that success was to be had for the asking, but he recognized the fact that in this country industry and diligence are not hampered by caste or class and that the road to advancement is open to all. Accordingly, he put forth earnest, persistent effort and has won for himself a creditable position in business circles of Columbus."


Henry, Emma, and their boys can be found in the 1910, 1920, and 1930 censuses of Columbus City, Platte County, Nebraska. Henry and Emma became naturalized citizens in 1914, according to the 1920 census record.

Henry registered for the WW I draft on 12 September 1915. On the registration, he gives his birth date as 3 February 1878, states that he is a naturalized citizen, that his wife is Emma Alpers, that they live at 18th & North in Columbus, Platte County, Nebraska, and that he is self-employed as a painter - contractor.


The following two paragraphs are from "The History of Platte County, Nebraska" by Margaret Curry, Culver City, California, 1950:

(page 258) "The history of the Immanuel Lutheran Congregation dates back to the summer of 1883, when the Reverend Herman Miessler, then a young man of twenty two, arrived in Columbus, Nebraska. He had been called by a small group of families to serve as their pastor."

(page 260) "The 1947 - 1948 officers of the Immanuel Lutheran Congregation included A. H. Guettler, Pastor; Henry Alpers, Roy Bargmann, Herman Cattau, Otto Clausen, Lorenz Loseke, and Herman Meyer, Board of Elders; W. P. Schelp, Treasurer; Dick Becher, Henry Flesner and E. T. Miessler, Trustees; Albert Inselman, J. H. Moeller, and Paul Nyffeler, Finance Committee."

(Personal communication from Lois Alpers, July 2007): "Yes, I was aware that grandpa Alpers had applied for the patent .... Grandpa 'improved' every tool he ever had. At least, he felt that he did. He could pick up any musical instrument and play it. His training in Germany was to be a cabinet maker ... He started a papering and painting business in Nebraska. My dad was sure that the paint roller was something a paint salesman copied from grandpa ... He made his own with pieces of carpet many, many years before they were known. I spoke with my brother. You should have heard the question in his voice when I told him that 'cousin John' sent the patent information. Sometimes I think the rest of the family think that I am just a little off my rocker. But, I really do enjoy the searching."

(From Gayle Kenfiels's Dammann genealogy on the internet)

THE FOLLOWING IS AN EXCERPT FROM A LETTER WRITTEN BY RUTH DAMMANN MARR, DAUGHTER OF JOHN HENRY DAMMANN

My father, John Henry Dammann, was born in Mulsum on the Elbe River in Germany. He was one of five children, Carston, Claus, Metta, John Henry and Mary. His mothers name was Metta, but I never heard him speak of his father, only to say that he was a farmer. All the people lived in the village, and walked out to their "farm" or small patch of land. He often spoke of the beautiful forest, which were preserved and never cut, but the villagers would keep them free from the dead vegetation and branches which were used for firewood. In winter he used his skates on the river Elbe to get to school. He wore wooden shoes mostly.
Carston, the oldest in the family was nearing the age of 18, at which time he would be conscripted into the German army, which he did not want. So he came to America before the government got him. He settled in Nebraska, a farmer--I think he took up land from the government. Later when his children were nearly grown he and his family came back to Michigan and bought a section of land a short distance south of Fowlerville, not far from my father, who owned a farm to the east of Fowlerville.
A short time after Carston left Germany for America, the rest of the Dammann family of Mulsum came to America. My father was 12 years old at that time. The family stopped at Bright, Michigan, as there was a settlement of German families there, and in the Township of Genoa. My father, at age 12 got a job working for the Dorr family, on their farm. During the winter he went to the country school, when there wasn't farm work to do. His mother and father, with the younger children, soon decided to go "out west" where Carston had settled in Nebraska. John liked it so much as he was situated that he wanted to stay, and let the family go on without him. And they did--and he never saw his mother and father or his sisters again. His brother Claus came to Michigan on a visit to Carston and his family, and I remember being at Henry Dammans to meet him. That would be about 1917.
That family, like my fathers' were farmers.

Biography (from: www.rootsweb.com)

Dankers, Diedrich (page 465), now living retired in Lake city, is a man who has had an active career as farmer and public official, and is well and favorably known over most of the county. He was born in Hanover, Germany, November 15, 1848, son of Peter and Anna Dankers, and was educated in the common schools in his native land. There he grew to manhood and was married April 18, 1869, to Marguerite Martin. For 10 years longer he remained in Germany, and then, in 1879, with his wife and three children, he emigrated to the United States, coming directly to Wabasha County, Minn. Here he at once turned his attention to the cultivation of the soil, renting the Thomas Morrow farm in Mt. Pleasant Township, which he worked for 15 years. In 1894 he bought of Mr. Morrow an improved farm of 120 acres, with fair buildings, on section 32, which he operated until 1906. He then retired, buying a comfortable residence in Lake City, at the corner of Dwelle and Sixth streets, where he has since made his home. On February 2, 1911, Mr. Dankers suffered a paralytic shock, as the result of which he has since been helpless, but otherwise enjoys good health. He was a very active and capable farmer, and very successful. He was also a prominent citizen of his township, serving as chairman of the town board for six years, and also for a number of years as assessor and on the school board. In 1901 and 1902 he built the first macadamized road in Wabasha county, extending from the foot of McCahill Hill to the boundary of Lake Township. His prosperity has been self-acquired, with the aid of his wife and children, as he had nothing when he arrived in this county. Moreover, during his early years on the farm, he hade little, owing to the low price of produce, having to sell his barley at 17 cents, eggs at 5 cents, and butter at 8 to 10 cents. He and his wife have been the parents of nine children: Anna, Marguerite, Katherine, Henry, Charles, Peter, John, Fred and William, of whom the first three mentioned were born in Germany. Anna is now the wife of John Isendorf of Goodhue County. Katherine is the wife of Deidrich Klintworth of Chester Township, Wabasha County. Henry is a harness-maker at Glenwood, Minn. Charles, born April 9, 1881, is a farmer in Belvidere Township, Goodhue County. Peter, born March 18, 1884, and John, born March 29, 1886, are farming in the same township as John. Fred is operating a farm in section 33, Mt. Pleasant Township. William, born January 19, 1898, was a grocer and musician in Lake City, but died from influenza November 11, 1918. His wife and three children are now residing in Lake City near the home of Mr. Dankers. The Dankers family are members of St. John's congregation (Lutheran) in Lake City, of which the subject of this sketch was a trustee for many years.

MR. AND MRS. JOACHIM DEDEN ARE HONORED AT GOLDEN ANNIVERSARY
It was 50 years ago Thursday that Mr. and Mrs. Joachim Deden drove to a little church in Hay Creek to be married and then returned to her home for the wedding reception. On Thursday, in company with their children and a few friends they celebrated their golden wedding anniversary at their pleasant home, 617 Potter Street.
The event was marked by a chicken dinner, which was followed by an information program of short talks with the couple's pastor, the Rev. J.R. Baumann, acting as toastmaster. Days of long ago were recalled and the time spent in a general social manner.
On behalf of the children, the Rev. Mr. Baumann presented Mr. and Mrs. Deden with a purse containing $50 in gold. He praised the couple for their interest in church and community affairs and extended to them wishes for many happy returns of their unusual anniversary. Both Mr. Deden and his wife responded.
The Deden's, following their marriage, farmed successfully in Hay Creek Township, but for several years past have resided in Red Wing.
Both are active members of St. John's Lutheran Church, Mr. Deden being a deacon of the congregation. The couple are enjoying excellent health and greatly enjoyed Thursday's event.
Present at the celebration were the following children: Miss Clara Deden and Mrs. Maynard Vollmers, Red Wing; Mrs. Ed Schilling and Ed Deden, Hay Creek; Henry Deden, Belvidere; and Rudolph Deden, Hager City, Wis. A daughter, Mrs. Maggie Kletzke of Fessenden, N.D., was unable to attend.

J. Deden, 80, Pioneer Dies
Farmed Successfully for Many Years in Hay Creek

Goodhue County has lost another of its hardy and highly respected pioneers in the passing of Joachim Deden, which occurred Thursday evening at about 6:30 o'clock at his home, 617 Potter Street. Death was due to complications of old age.
Born on Jan. 3, 1856, at Hanover, Germany, he came to this country in 1870, settling in Hay Creek Township, where he farmed successfully for many years. He was united in marriage to Miss Wilhelmina Harmon in 1880.
Mr. Deden was active in affairs of the Hay Creek community. He was a faithful member of the Hay Creek Lutheran Church and for many years was a member of the church council. He acted as supervisor of the Hay Creek Township board for two terms.
Upon retiring from farming 22 years ago Mr. Deden took up his residence in Red Wing and until a few years ago was caretaker at St. John's Lutheran Church. Of a kindly disposition he made friends with everyone he met and his death will be mourned by many.
He is survived by his widow, four daughters, Mrs. Herman Klitzke, Mrs. Ed Schilling, Mrs. Maynard Vollmers and Mrs. Herman DeRemee; three sons, Rudolph, Edward and Henry Deden and a brother, Diedrich Deden.
The funeral will be held tomorrow afternoon at 1:30 o'clock from the Edstrom Chapel and at 2 o'clock at St. John's Lutheran Church, Rev. J.R. Baumann officiating. Burial will be at the Hay Creek cemetery.

Peter Engelken Family. Peter Engelken, his second wife Margareta Oelers, and their children Hinrich (b. 1868), Peter (b. 1874), Maria Katharina (b. 1877), Meta (b. 1881), and Engel (b. 1884) set sail for America on January 28, 1885. They arrived in New York Harbor on February 22, and proceeded directly to Independence where relatives, including their daughter Katharine (b. 1866) awaited them. Their nephew Johann (b. 1868) also came with them.

Peter Engelken was born in Apensen, in the K
önigreich Hannover, on January 1, 1831. He was the son of Friedrich Engelken and Elisabeth Völkers. He died in Independence on February 17, 1908 and became the first person buried in the Lutheran Cemetery. Margareta Oelers was born in Apensen, in the Königreich Hannover, on March 4, 1844. She was the daughter of Hinrich Oelers and Susanna Burfiend. She died in Independence on April 15, 1926 and is buried next to her husband. The family left Deutschland in order to avoid having their sons serve in the army of the Kaiser who had defeated Hannover in 1866. In Hannover the family had been masons and bricklayers. In Independence, they took up farming.

One by one the children of Peter and Margaret married. Katharine married Claus Fienen of Meinstedt, Deutschland on March 23, 1890; Hinrich married Katharina Ehlen of Weertzen, Deutschland on December 16, 1894; Peter married Agnes Petershagen of Williamsburg, Iowa and Maria married Johann Lange of Boitzen, Deutschland in a double wedding on January 17, 1901; Meta married Jacob Richert of Ontario, Canada on September 17, 1907; and Engel married Frank Hinrichs of Illinois on May 28, 1905. Each of the children were married at Zion Lutheran Church in Independence. On March 3, 1907, Peter Engelken was presented with his first grandson that would carry on the Engelken name. Ludwig Peter Hinrich Engelken, the son of Hinrich and Katharine Engelken, is the grandfather of the author of this article and presently lives in Alva, Oklahoma with his wife of sixty years, Ella Kletke.

The family of Peter and Margaret Engelken has grown to nearly 370 descendants as of the end of 1993. What began as six children in 1885 became thirty-five grandchildren, fifty-four great-grandchildren, 131 great-great-grandchildren, 136 great-great-great grandchildren, and several known great-great-great-great grandchildren so far. Their descendants have been born in eighteen of the fifty states, as well as in Canada. Many of their descendants stayed in Montgomery County, while others are spread out from Pennsylvania to Hawaii.

Peter and Margareta Engelken's children have since passed away. Katharine Fienen died in 1923 in Independence, Hinrich Engelken died in 1939 in Alva, Oklahoma, Peter Engelken died in 1955 in Independence, Maria Lange died in 1933 in Independence, Meta Richert died in 1951 in Ontario, Canada, and Engel Hinrichs died in 1961 in Independence. August Fienen, Louie and his wife Esther, Minnie Marie, Marie Anna, and Ernestine Magdalena Lange, all grandchildren of Peter and Margareta, currently live in Independence, continuing a presence begun one hundred and nine years ago.

MRS. CLAUS FITSCHEN PASSES AWAY FRIDAY MORNING

Maria Prigge was born in the Province of Hanover, Germany October 24th, 1845 and after spending the greater part of her girlhood days in the city of Hamburg, came to America in the spring of 1872. On July 12th, of the same year she was united in wedlock to Claus Fitschen and together they
established their home in Hay Creek Township, Goodhue County, Minn., on a
farm, where they resided until they came to Lake City in 1911. Mrs.
Fitschen experienced the many hardships incident to near pioneer days, which however became the builder of a character such as we find in our older settlers.
She became a devout Christian early in life and was very active in leading a good life. During her later years her health began to break down and which condition was hastened by the death of her husband, which occurred Sept.21, 1922, when she began to look forward to a happy reunion in that EternalHome with those gone on before and her Lord whom she loved, brought her earthly life to a peaceful close on Friday morning, May 23rd, 1925 at the home of her daughter , Mrs. Edward Wiebusch, where she was visiting for a short time.
She leaves to mourn her death, three daughters and one son. Mrs. Anna
Gilbert, Mrs. Peter J. Schafer of Lake City, Minn., Mrs. Edward Wiebusch of
Hay Creek township, Goodhue County, and Albert Claus Fitschen also of Lake
city. One sister, Mrs. Cord Fitschen of Pasadena, Cal., and a number of

=========================================

BOOK - HISTORY OF GOODHUE COUNTY, MN. PUBLISHED IN 1909.

Henry Fitschen, a scientific farmer of Belvidere, was born in-Germany, June 22, 1852, son of Jurgen and Kate (Hoeft) Fitsehen, both natives of that country. He received his education in Germany, and later attended school in America for three months. He came to America in 1869, took up farming and in 1869 came to Minnesota and located in Hay Creek, where he worked for his brother Cord for seven years. In 1876 he purchased eighty acres in Belvidere township, where he has since made his home, improving his land, adding more gradually, until he owns over 400 acres, of which 300 are under cultivation. He carries on general farming and makes a specialty of raising fine stock and horses. He was married March 22, 1876, to Margaret Ohlhaber, daughter of Claus and Christina (Gerken) Ohlhaber, natives of Germany, who came to America, where the mother died in 1884. The father is still living with a daughter in Featherstone township. Mr. and Mrs. Fitschen have had seven children, of whom six are living: Annie W., married to Cord Kohrs, living on a farm in Belvidere; Claus, now of Belvidere; Eliza C., married to William Betcher, a farmer of Hay Creek; John C., Louis J., and Albert W., living at home. Mary died in infancy. Mr. Fitschen is a Republican and has been treasurer of school district 34, which office he held for five years. He has been pathmaster for four years. The family faith is that of the German Lutheran church. Mr. Fitschen is a fine example of a farmer whpse heart is in his work and who performs his duties intelligently and with a knowledge of agricultural conditions. He has fed stock since early boyhood and carries on farming not only for the purpose of making a living, but for the pleasure he derives from watching the sprouting and maturing of the harvests and the development of the animals. His stock receives the best of care and each animal on the place realizes that it has a friend and thoughtful caretaker in its owner. Since Mr. Fitschen commenced farming all the straw raised on his place has been returned to the land for fertilizer; thus the land grows richer year by year, instead of becoming worn out. It is such farmers as he who add to the dignity of what is one of the noblest callings in which man can engage."

=============================================-Biography of Henry Peter Juers, a son of Peter Juers and Katharina:
(from: www.rootsweb.com/~mnwabbio/2j.htm)
Juers, Henry Peter (page 430), a successful and well known farmer of Mt. Pleasant Township, whose farm and residence is located in section 29, was born on this same farm, December 23, 1883, son of Peter and Catherine Juers. His parents, who came from Germany, were early settlers in this locality. He acquired his elementary education in the district school, and during the winter of 1902-3 attended the Lake City Business College. He then entered the employ of Kemp & Roschen, general merchants of Lake City, and was with them until 1912. Then returning to the home farm, he took up its operation and has since made good progress as a general farmer, working hard and having the satisfaction of seeing his bank account grow from year to year. The farm contains 240 acres, 210 acres of the land, which is very fertile, being under cultivation. It also possesses a fine set of buildings, the house being a substantial frame structure of two stories, and in addition to his operating equipment Mr. Juers owns a fine Cleveland touring car. His cattle are of the Shorthorn breed, the herd numbering from 30 to 35 head, and he milks on an average of nine cows. He has also a good herd of 25 to 30 swine. Aside from his interests in the farm, he is a stockholder in the Oak Center Creamery, the Farmers' Elevator at Lake City, the Farmers' Terminal Packing Co. of St. Paul, and the Goodhue County Co-operative stores. He is also a member of the Lake City Shipping Association. On September 4, 1906, Mr. Juers was united in marriage with Anna M., daughter of David and Anna (Thomford) Holzworth, of Brownsville, Houston County, Minn. He and his wife have one child, Elmer Peter, who was born November 28, 1907, and is now helping his father on the farm. The family is members of the Lutheran congregation at Belvidere, Goodhue County. Politically Mr. Juers is a Republican, though of broad tendencies, as he exercises his right to cast his vote for the best man, regardless of party.

Obituary (thanks to Marv Lemmerman):

JOHN LEMMERMANN

John Lemmermann was born December 31, 1864, in Ahrensmoor, Hanover, Germany, and baptized the following 8th of January. After being duly instructed in the Lutheran faith he was confirmed in 1879 in Ahlerstedt. As a young man he emigrated from Germany to America, coming to Morris, Stevens County, Minnesota. At this place he lived for about 20 years. During this time in 1889 he was married to Johanna [sic] [Albertina] Asmus. For the last twenty-one years he lived with his family in our vicinity and congregation.

Having a strong constitution by the Grace of God, he remained free from serious sickness till about five years ago. Attacks of the same which recurred at intervals did not cause him special concern. During the last nine months, however, his condition grew more serious, till at last he succumbed to a complication of diseases, his death occurring last Thursday, the 17th. inst.

In Morris he was instrumental in the forming of the congregation which is still flourishing in Johnson. Amongst us here, he was an active Christian and worker. He died in fervent faith in his Lord and Savior, after having received Holy Communion a few days previous to his death. His age was seventy years and sixteen days.

He leaves his bereaved widow, twelve children, August, Albert, John, Oscar, Carl, Theodor Lemmermann, Mrs. Art. Mueller, Mrs. Anton Mueller, Mrs. Henry Bruhn, Mrs. Francis Bruhn, Mrs. Walter Lange, Mrs. W. Kettenacker and twenty-six grandchildren, as well as a brother, H. Lemmermann of Stevens County, Minn.

The funeral took place January 20th, 1935, in the St. Peter's Lutheran church conducted by Rev. Karl Rudolph.

PETER MERKENS (sic) DEAD

Once more the hand of the Supreme Ruler has been laid upon an old and honored citizen and the place that knew Peter Merkens will know him no more.

Shortly after harvest Mr. Merkens complained of a severe pain in his stomach and it grew worse until he went to Wabasha and entered St. Elizabeth hospital for treatment. His attending physician decided it was cancer of the stomach and as a last resort Mr. Merkens concluded to have an operation performed, which was done by Dr. Milligan on Thursday of last week, and Mr. Merkens died the following Tuesday, November 28, at 10 o'clock P.M.

On Wednesday the remains were brought to Lake City and taken to his home in Mt. Pleasant where the funeral was held at 10 o'clock Saturday, Rev. Mr. Ferber officiating. The remains were then taken to the church at Belvidere where a short service was held and the remains laid at rest in the cemetery near by.

Deceased was born in Hanover, Germany, on May 30, 1840, hence was 65 years, 5 months and 24 days of age at the time of his demise. When eleven years old, in company with his parents he came to Bellville, Ill., where he resided on a farm for nineteen years and then came to Minnesota, purchasing a farm in the town of Belvidere in Goodhue County. He later purchased a farm in the town of Gillford, Wabasha County, and again purchased one in Mt. Pleasant where he resided at the time of his death, although he owned both of the other farms he had owned so long. Mr. Merkens was a kind, loving husband and father, an accommodating neighbor, and will be greatly missed by his host of friends. About thirty-five years ago Mr. Merkens and Miss Adelaide Bruchorst, of Brownsville, Minn., were married and his beloved wife and nine children survive him. The children are: Mrs. Anna Gerkin of Gillford,, Mrs. Mary Holst of Belvidere, Mrs. Lydia Fick of Lake, Mrs. Lizzy Dankers of Mt. Pleasant, and Misses Lena and Lavina (Leona) Merkens and John and Henry who reside at home to comfort their mother in her deep sorrow.

The funeral was one of the largest ever seen in this part of the country and the large circle of friends extend their sympathy to the bereaved family.

man to shun hard work. So well did he get along that in time he found
himself the owner of 600 acres of land in the township, which in 1909 he
divided among his sons. He was a man of strong and rugged physique, and as
a citizen was useful and respected. He died July 15, 1919, having been a
widower for somewhat over 14 years, as his wife passed away June 15, 1905.
They had in all seven children. The first, Margaret, who, as already
mentioned, was born in Germany, is now the widow of Fred Dose, and resides
in Lake City. The other children, all born in this country, and all now
living, are: Emma, now Mrs. John Brinkman of Zumbrota, Goodhue County,
Minn.; Henry John, a prosperous farmer of Mt. Pleasant Township;
Elizabeth, wife of John Vollmer, of Lake City; George, a farmer in Mt.
Pleasant Township; Adolph, who is farming in the same township; and Freda,
now Mrs. Herman Nibbe, of Gilford Township.

=====================================
From Herb Grotheer (Rootsweb):

"From Carole RGF048, John and Anna lived at 1808 Fulton Street. The bottom store front was rented out and upstairs was the apartment where they lived.
!RESEARCH:
Here is what Caorle RGF48 knows about her Grotheer family:
-----Her G-GM was Anna Grotheer b. 1866. She died in 1962 at the age of 96. Her G-GM Anna Grotheer, died 6 Oct 1962 at 5 am. Carole has a copy of the death certificate.
-----Carole's GM died in 1969 in the USA.
-----Carole was born in 1945, so she remembers many stories told by her GM and her G-GM.
-----Carol was about 16 years old when her G-GM died, so she remembers stories from her about the family in Germany.
-----Carole has a candle with the birth date of 24 April 1866 for her G-GM.
-----Her G-GM, Anna Grotheer, immigrated to New York at age 17 in 1883. Arriving on the vessel Donau on 13.10.1883 from Germany (calculates a birth year of about 1866).
-----Her G-GM, Anna Grotheer, marred a Meyer about 1891, Carole does not have this marriage certificate.
-----Her G-GM, Anna Grotheer, named her daughter, from the first marriage to Meyer, after her Aunt Catharin in Germany.
-----Her G-GM, Anna Grotheer, married Peter Fink for the second marriage. Carole has a copy of the marriage certificate.
-----This marriage certificate lists the father as George Grotheer and the mother as Adelheid W
öltjen
-----Her G-GM, Anna Grotheer, had a brother Johann Grotheer in Germany.
-----The sister of Anna Grotheer, Adelheid Grotheer, immigrated a year later, in 1884.
----------She was sponsored by the Meyer family in the USA
----------Her immigration record is found on the passenger list of the ship Fulda on 6.9.1884.
----------She listed her age as 19, family stories said that she lied about her age, because she was under age (about 16). She would have been about 16 years of age when she left Germany. Maybe there is a confirmation record for her at age 14 in Germany.
----------The sister of Anna Grotheer, Adelheid Grotheer, died 11/3/1903 @ age 35 and is buried next to his sister. The burial records said that a infant child was buried with her in the same casket. The father is listed as Jürgen Grotheer. The mother is listed as Adelheid W
öltjen. It also states that she died age 66 and was born on 4/24/1866 in Germany and was a resident for 77 years.
-----There is a grave stone for Anna Grotheer Meyer Fink next to Adelheid Grotheer in the Grotheer family plot.
-----The Grotheer family plot is in the Lutheran Cemetery, Middle Village, Quens Co., New York.
.
OTHER NOTES:
Also, since the mother (Adelheid W
öltjen b. 1836) of Anna Grotheer b. 1866 died in 1870, Jürgen Grotheer probably remarried. It is not likely that he raised 5 young children by himself. (ages 2, 4, 6, 11, 12)
.
From family stories, her mother Adelheid W
öltjen b. 1836 (the GG-GM of Carole Hoskins Pravato) traveled to visit family/friends when she was 8
months pregnant and her daughter Adelheid was born 1868 where she was visiting.

!RESEARCH: Heike sent me a copy of the grave stone of Claus and Anna Roggenkamp. This stone said that Anna Grotheer Roggenkamp was born 9.4.1880 and died 31.8.1956. The picture of the stone is filled in the Heike Heins computer folder [RGF159]. The research from Dr. Müller [RGF160] said that Anna Adelheid [RIN3382 b. 21.4.1866] had married Claus Roggenkamp. The grave stone proves this research to be wrong. There was only one Anna b 9.4.1880 in the area, and it was the Anna Adelheid [RIN12079], the daughter of Johann Grotheer and Adelheid Wiesehan.
