The Little Men and the Little Women of Meyer Family from Eichdorf und Oldendorf, Nahrendorf

Meyer Little Men and Women in America

The picture on the left is of the children of Juergen Heinrich Wilhlem Meyer and Maria Dorothea Heins. They came from Oldendorf, Nahrendorf in 1884 on the ship Frisia. They are- front row - Mary and Herman. Second row - William and Anna. You may remember little Henry William was only a baby and did die that same year.

I have wondered, if the names are reversed. I think in the front row that the child on the left looks like Herman. There sure is no telling the girls from the boys. Unless someone else can.???
Email me for sure, if you can. arootdiggeratgmail.com

The second picture on the right reminds me of the girls in the novel Little Women. So, these are the Meyer Little Women. Front row - Anna, Lilly and Mary. Second row - Emma, Minnie, Louise and Frieda Meyer. She is so sweet. [ Spouse surnames are Bennett, Carter, Nahnsen, Cain or Dean, Stolley, and Nahnsen. Louise died young without marriage.

I wonder why there was not a picture of just the guys?

Wilhelm's brother, Juergen Heinrich Friedrich Meyer emmigrated to America 1869. He did not marry until 1882 at Maquoketa, Iowa.[ I still have not found that marriage online.]

  1. I have found the marriage of Juergen Hch. Friedrich Meyer. His name had and 's' on the end of it. I also found his death record which can be see in the new part of Latter day saints material.
    By the way their father also had the name Heinrich just like Freds. It was just rarely used. His brother [And their Younger uncle[1817]] lived in Weste, Uelzen, died young and his son never lived long. Daughter's unknown life as of yet [lol]I have not found his older brothers life history. Only his birth details which you will see if you check my archives. Nor have I found their sister Maria Elisabeth life.
    You can google search here above at right for more information blog detail here about Fred's marriage to Schenk and her family if you wish. Family surnames: Schenk, Schoop, Rieckens, Wiese, Michels, Schroder, Schultz, Ahrens, Wiegert. good luck
