Kuhlman family from Lippe is related to AHREN, NAEFKE, GROTE, and SEIL

I was contacted by others interested in my information on Ahrens, Seil, Grote, Naefke surnames in the Calhoun county Iowa area. So this blog topic is aimed towards those interested in the Ahrens, Naefke, Seil, Nahnsen, Meyer families. If your going down that path one would not be able to eventually ignore the surnames of Schroeder, Saucke, Carstensen..

As you read this blog, you might want to check out this other blog about people from Oldendorf. Especially for the names Grote, and Seil. I still do not know exactly what their village was in area of Oldendorf. If I had stopped blabbering long enough on the telephone during our conversation, I might have learned more.
Right Mark [Kuhlman relative]. The Grote and Ahren families who attended the St. Peters church near Farnhamville church location is said to come from Oldendorf. If not from Oldendorf, I wonder what little village did they really come from.
Anyway here it the one important blog's address. http://genealogyofoldendorfundnahrendorf.blogspot.com/
Later on, I hope to get into various series about villages with names of residents at various separate pages in this Oldendorf blog. In mean time you will note that on my first page you will see the names where I mention. Raetzman, Licht with Meyer at Uelzen. Sure the Raetzman family are not exactly from Oldendorf, but the extended Meyer family is. You will have to use the search and the archives on the right side of the page to find more information on a particular name. In this case, Grote, Ahrens, Naefke, and William Meyer, Adel Grote Carstensen. That will lead you to this blog again to the various pages of information kindly provided by Christi Chance. Her extended family leading to Jungck and on the other side of the family going into Lau, Joachim, Joachimsen and the extended vast family of Carstensen from Clinton county, Iowa. [ Most of that is not yet covered here]Some names are just not labeled or tagged, and you will find them by reading the blog. Sorry.

So family we are definately related to Elmer Kuhlman family of Lewisville area. The Elmer Kuhlman family. With more correspondence I will learn much much more, which I can share with you. [After I hung up the phone with further thought, I now suspect that I saw something of it at Ancestry trees or public trees, but forgot about it.] I suppose I had intended to spend a little time on it later and I still do.

Relevant links and not so relevent links
For pictures of ancestors one can always check this blog
http://whatchamacallum.blogspot.com/
For further reading on Henry Seil and Mary Ahren see it at their link which is same but more exact address.
August Grote link Were all the Grotes of that family from the same place? Gutting and or Goedingen.?
Marsala ship link.
I shall sort my information and notes on the relationship of Kuhlman, Ahrens and Seil and relate it here. Sorry you have to wait.

One more answer to the riddle. I sure hope I can remember those details that he told me.

Note: Mark told me that Seil use to own a gas station in Lewisville. That was news to me. I know our families owned all of them at one time. As well as one at the ten mile corner. I thought William had one in Lewisville too, until he moved to Fairmont and ran the one under the Poppe name.

Note: Mark also told me that the Grote family lived only a year or so in Iowa and then went to Arkansas. I knew that Adelia had lived with Naefke there. I wonder if she married there? Did Naefke move there as well. See this is maybe why Herman and Annie gave some thought to living in Arkansas. In one letter from Annie Bennett there was a statement she made to Herman. She said, I see you decided you did not want to pick rocks in Arkansas. Meaning living and farming there and picking rocks. Instead he chose to live at Sunnyslope farm at Minnesota.

Note: I must ask him [Mark] if he knows where William lived in Fairmont. Was it North Park near the Hamlins.

Note: Were Grote from Gutting or Goeddingen? And where were Naefke actually from In Hannover?


I really have a few things to hunt up for him. I had better get busy.


*A personal Note to Mark Kuhlman:
If you read this or other pages- your really have to read about the Luhmann family of Eichdorf. Because there was another Seil family involved which was told to me by those who married with the Bluhm family.
You can correspond online with the Nahrendorf church, I can make it easier for you by hunting up the web address for you from my older emails. Your correspondence only confirms that I have to ask Herr Bock about the various Seils that I have found in records. Including my Anna Seils gr. great grandparents. I will find a linkage for you.

*Not only that, but Grotes did show in the Uelzen book at Hohenfier that Heinrich Porth wrote of in his book on Himbergen OFB. There is a Christoph Seil in it.
Also, I would like to mention that some of my Heins and Seil lived at Breese and that is where some other Grotes lived. Including Graf von Grote. One of those descendents has contacted me. !!!

* Third thing to note. On our Passenger list of the Marsala ship, was there a Puffahrt or Putfahrt? I thought I had seen it. Is anything known of that gentleman. He was in the area of Dannenberg which could be any of those villages by Oldendorf which belonged to Dannenberg. Also there were Puffahrt living at the Hitzacker villages.
*A man by name Puffahrt is researching many specific surnames in our area of Oldendorf, Hitzacker area of Elbe river area and Dannenberg area. He can be found on the Kingdom of Hannover mailing list courtesy of rootsweb. What is particularily wonderful is the information he throws back to the list on surnames of the region that we might find interesting.

* Fourth. I should have said Luhmann moved to Ottertail, Minnesota. The other Meta Luhmann was at the area I told you. Quast, Dirk, Banit and others from Dahlenburg Jonas tree.

* I made an error. Dorothy Seil of the Henry Dohrman tree settled Joliet Illinois and then later to Iowa with Farmhamville connections. Tasler, Vogel Tree. [Roper related to Tasler]

* I need to find out if any of the Grote and Naefke and Ahrens lived in Illinois prior or after the others went to Iowa. Although ship passage said Iowa. Who did they know who had gone before them to there?
* Fifth. I have had a particular interest in Ahrens, since I have also seen the name spelled Arens.
1. There were some Arens involved with Heins. Otte, Brookmann and various other surnames at Bergen Celle.[ Some mentioned before.......Drewes, Bockelman, Mueller,Drogemueller, Meyerhof, Hohls,Holes, Dagefoerde, etc.
11. There were Ahrens in the Genzel tree of Oldendorf. Hof 30. And the Sueschendorf hof tree which were surnames of Reinecke, Schroeder, Meyer, Schulz, Michel, or Michael and Ros[s]eburg. There were immigrations of this family tree to America.

just me Jo.

Genealogy - Johann Fr. Wilhelm BILL August Rasche

Many times now, you have seen that I have written about various information from a Mystery man in Fairmont, Martin county Minnesota. He lived on South Park or the back of his house was on Cambridge ave [ally] in the middle and late 1970's. If I recall right, he did mention as relation the person I knew who lived above Edies Restaurant by the name of Dick or Richard Rasche. I think he said that he was his brother. Or someone else said it. Either way he was in our family somehow. It is up to me to uncover more about Dick Rasche. It may be easier if I use this information to check first. He also mentioned being related to Jorgensen Jorgenson.



Johann Fr. Wilhelm BILL August Rasche
Born: 08 MAR 1872 in: Kankakee Co., IL
Baptized: 04 MAY 1872 in: St. Peter UCC, Grant Park, IL 5
Died: 31 MAR 1965 in: Fairmont, Martin Co., MN 1
Buried: 03 APR 1965 in: Lakeside Cemetery, Fairmont, MN
Spouse: Louise Matthias (1878-1957)
Daughter of Heinrich Otto Matthias from Ohndorf, Germany


More on the Rasche family At Karensgen.com

World connect contains more than one tree pertaining to this family tree with various branches. [Steven Kamm], Miller.

More information to come at later blog posts about the St James Cemetery burials pertaining to Northrup, Minnesota.


I know!. I know this is not the way one does genealogy. One starts with oneself and goes backwards. But I have been given clues. Now the big problem I have is finding out which of the Rasche's who carry the first name of Richard or Dick Rasche in Fairmont is the correct I am not sure how I can go about narrowing this down. I know he was living 1970- 1980 in Fairmont, while I was still there. Perhaps, I can locate a obit of one or the other.

Note: Surnames in connection of interest to me. Malo, Rettke, Janssen. Miller, Jorgenson, or Jorgensen.

Schlaphof, Schlaphoff and Mr(s) Anonymous indicates there probably was no wedding dress for Dorothy, the mail order Bride

There is a mystery Anonymous Schlaphof[f] relative who stopped by to my blog to comment a few weeks ago. Had I not been so involved in getting another level at Farmville, I just might have noticed it and replied sooner than today! Gosh, some days I get so mad at myself that I can neglect what is so important to me. This is what he said:



I stumbled on this blog doing a search for the roots of my mother's maiden
name.John Schlaphoff that you note in this story is my great uncle. I have
visited our cousins in Germany and I have a little bit of insight to the story
as I have read a hand written account of it and how my great grandfather Carl
Schlaphoff came to work for his aunt Dorothea. According to the story I read,
both women were very poor and only had one wooden tool chest (a small hand
carried woodworkers kit) between them to pack all their belongings, since they
could not fit much for clothes in the box other than their unmentionables they
each wore a number of dresses to the harbor. I would certainly hope they had
someplace to disrobe the extra ones on the ship. I do not know whether a
wedding dress was among the dresses that either wore, but it must have made quite
a site if it were.


So it was a hand carried woodworkers tool kit.Would it have a lid or be open. A friend from Germany says she thinks it may have been a closed tool box.



Honestly, what would you pack in that wooden tool box?

I would wear as many clothes as I could too, so I could get more into that box. I'd probably look like a tinckerman and be so weighed down, I could barely walk. Maybe, I would have to remember that Nebraska has stores and orders items from the east. Would you be thinking that more things could be sent to you or purchased once married. Or would you be thinking, we may be too poor to get some of these things, so I had better bring it with. I am sure you would consult someone who would know what for sure was needed to take. Perhaps the future groom sent a list.



And all the practical wants and needs does not account for anything sentimental from home or reminders of loved ones. What sentimental item could you get into the box.

1. And the essential, your bible for daily reading,

2. My families recipes unless I had them memorized. [ Check the census to see if she can read or write].

3. I am sure I would try to bring some all important seeds.

4. Things to eat might have been very important.



And lastly, I wonder what I would have forgotten to bring, that I should have. [ An extra pair of shoes, or my thimble, etc. [smile] Shoes can be made in America so nix to the shoes, I am sure supplies like thimbles etc were at the general store. I think, if I knew my parents were coming later for a visit, I certainly would mail them a list of special requests!



Most of all this Mail order Bride story encourages me to think that since Dorothea was very poor and that she still refused to marry the older gentleman, she was a very brave young lass. I would say maybe more romantic, and wise on top of practical thinking in one way and less in another. Unless she knew she could find something for employment. Had she made friends there to help her. Surely she consulted someone before refusing his hand to know the whys and hows to proceed. There always has to be a plan b in times of a gamble.



I remember reading in a letter a year or so ago,sent by one of the other Schlaphof relatives, who told me that there was a relative who had gone to this area prior to her arrival. I think the name was Ruge. So there was at least someone there for the two girls they knew.



Wouldn't you still love to know more of the story. I sure would.



Note: [I'll have to see if I can give ourselves a few more mental pictures of the times in regards to Cass county Nebraska. Dorothea Schlaphof was Daughter of my second-great aunt sister to my second-great grandmother who married Jurgen Friedrich Meyer . Just click on Dorothy to read more on her, if you like.



It is sad that I let so much time fill between this post and his posting. The good thing is that his finding of my blog means that my blog is drawing in the right readers. It is doing what it is suppose to do. It's brought in Luhmann relatives and Schlaphoff relatives. I am still waiting for Seil and Meyer descendants to visit here and contact me.I sure hope this a Anonymous returns so I can ask more questions. [Note to self: Write to Cass county Nebraska for more details on the area ways of pioneers settling into this frontier area.]

A birthday tribute In HONOR of Sylvia






Sylvia Meyer's birthday is this week, so I thought maybe a little post would be nice. It's funny, but not really, that I have been thinking, so heavily these days of her and Dewey Meyer. I bet all the pictures I had placed on the puter are gone, I'd have to scan a few again. So I borrowed these from Sunnyslope Farm[http://genealogyoflifeatsunnyslopefarm.blogspot.com/2009/05/genealogy-of-meyer-siblings-visit-tSunnyslope Farmo.html]
In this photo above you see mother Sylvia holding Sissy, and Dewy is holding Sonny.
Here the visitors of the family we find the Pauline Nahnsen and Carl Seil from Calhoun county Iowa. They came in company with their Parent who was Herman Henry's sister. Two of his sisters Frieda and Mary married Nahnsen brothers.
Also visiting this evening was Amanda and Lyle Meyer. I am not sure where their little Mary is instead of also being in the picture. Mary was born three days after Sissy on the seventh. I believe the photo was taken in December 1950.

I found this photo of her mother at Ancestry.com I am so pleased to show you the resemblence of Sylvia's mother to herself. Especially the hair. I had only seen her as an older person. Actually all photos I have have been of her in the older stage of life. { I would love to find something of her father, pics of William or even his brothers to see those facial features particular to her maternal family.] I see the resemblance perhaps in the face shape
Picture of Josie Lodes - Sylvia's Mother.


It is hard to believe that she has been gone from our life for six years now.
I remember Sylvia as usually full of laughter and teasing, usually when in a group of those she felt comfortable around. She really liked to spread her talents and help others in need. Like baking a cake for other people's occasions. Or one by making some little girl some curtains out of her fabric scraps. Lots of times it was just giving away many vegetables from her garden to friends.





Sylvia was mother, a hard worker, a chicken raiser, a gardener, a scrapbooker, collector, and quilter, among her other talents.
I have to rescan the photos I have of Sylvia in her youth. So I hope to do that when I can.
Please stop back and see it.

If anyone would like to comment on Sylvia, please do.

Genealogy: Webcams at our Ancestors locations.

A work associate and I were discussing names with the ' dorf" ending,. Well, if you know me, you know I just had to look up her name to see if it was an actual place name like I thought it probably was. . And it is. It is often the case that our names reflect where they were from. It could be Switzerland, maybe, Germay, Russia, and Norway. {I am not sure about Sweden, because they often use nature as inspiration for a name. [Though Husby is a farm name and a surname.]}

I might add that though there is a village the same as your name, that does necessarily mean that your family came from there. I have talked to several people who have the name Nahrendorf, and they are not from there. The same for some with the Dahlenburg name. I am not sure why this happens. If anyone knows, you sure can tell me. It might have something to do with a Herzog or count, who names a place he is in charge of, but doesn't live there.

Well I was off into looking up the name Follendorf. I ran across one hundred sixty five entries for the name at rootsweb world connect. One entry was this one takng the family to Germany, but no specific area mentioned. Most settlers were in Wi. i suppose I could have gone into other family members to see just where they came from, which is my usual trick for hints of origination of my ancestor.

But I didn't. So I went on to my next best bet which was the Google tool. Indeed it was not to let me down with 19,700 entires for the name.
I was distracted by the various search engine accounts that exist everytime one enters a surname or what resembles a surname. You find not only the english, but the german ones as well. I often find 123 xxx search coming up. I did click on one or two. I couldn't resist to see what comes with the name Follendorf.
http://distantcousin.com/SurnameResources/Surname.asp?Surname=FOLLENDORF
http://www.linkpendium.com/genealogy/USA/sur/surc-F/surc-Fol/sur-Follendorf/
http://www.cousinconnect.com/p/a/0/s/FOLLENDORF
Often the lutheran church search shows it self here and there.
http://feedjit.com/news/RU/follendorf/10/

I already had seen the linked in names of peoples private business. [ What ever that is.] As well as entries at face book.

The very first entry was this one. Which contained main heading of Flandorf Austria.
Follendorf Map Russia Google Satellite Maps
Follendorf google map. Satellite

So I hastened my result with the inclusion of the word map. I could have made other specifics google categories, but I chose not to make the location so easy. The result was ninty one of a hundred of the 19,700 entries.

I already know google has it's maps of all sorts. Satellite, and regions and other various categories at the click of your fingertips. Adding the umlaut for 'o' i narrowed 300 entries to ten from 5, 300 entries for map Follendorf. I could hop to wikipedia or any other encyclopedia including a Britanica set on my shelf.
I settled at Nona.net for the information.






(( Follendorf )) is a populated place in Kaliningradskaya Oblast', which is a
region of Russia. An overview map of the region around (( Follendorf )) is
displayed below. Aairports close to (( Follendorf )), Russia. The closest airport is KGD - Kaliningrad Khrabrovo, located 57.7 km north east of ((

Hahhhh! I can;t totally rule out germany as this site claims it has it in their book of german cities. Perhaps there were border changes and all that involved. I didn't read it all, just searched for the name for verification.


http://www.genealogyblog.com/?p=4603&cpage=1


And now why the google webcam link. I thought it was a good place to stop. Possibly I can add more to read links about genealogy and webcams. I think it is really a fun idea to add to your genealgy blog about ancestor and descendent information on places.


So further interest go ahead and click to see what they offer.

Hohenfier, Is located at both Himbergen Uelzen and Flatow

I thought I should do a little post about Hohenfier in Uelzen. Just in case some people are looking for a name or two.



I found the surnames and numbers in the book kindly written by Heinrich Porth.



But first I should address the name of the village Hohenfier location. If you punch in the name at rootsweb world connect search you may receive surprising results; if you were actually expecting it to be about the area of Uelzen.

There is another area with the village name of Hohenfier. Just as one finds the name of the village Husby. One finds it in South Trondelag and Sweden and North Germany as well. The other village Hohenfier , Flatow, Grenzmark, Prussia.
So be sure you know which you are really needing to look to find.



The Himbergen area of Uelzen is located up near the Elbe river which flows north. This area. Is often called Lower Germany. The people often speak Low German Or Low Dutch, or Plattedutsch. It is on the west side of the river over still a great deal. Hohenfier is close in kilometers to Roethen. You will find many websites about the forestery of Hohenfier. In my research of those who resided there often had the occupation of forester.



If you like you can look over some of my links about this area.

http://de.local.yahoo.com/Landkreis_Uelzen/Hohenfier/Banken_%2526_Sparkassen/de100000030-s-20166952.html

And the other area at Flatow.

Note: I did note a difference in spelling from time to time . Hohenfier was Hohenfuer.

German's - Lowlands-L • a discussion group for people who share an interest in languages and cultures of the Lowlands

Maybe you don't realize that the northern part of germany is low in topographics scale. The rivers run north. Maybe this is why the area of north germany is called the Low Lands. I should see if I can find a map that outlines these low lands. I had forgotten that my family and others in this north region by the Elbe river speak " Low German or Platte Dutsch. I am hoping that I reveal this all correct. Recently I googled a few sites to learn more since someone recently as far back as January mentioned that our families of Luneburg regions speak this Low German. I have been using the translators blindly forgetting that little piece of advice.
I am sure you would like to learn more. Clicking my link will bring an adventure to a lot fun and serious reading about the use of Low german.

Lowlands-L • a discussion group for people who share an interest in languages and cultures of the Lowlands: "What are “Lowlands languages and cultures”?
“Lowlands languages” are those Germanic languages that developed in the “Lowlands” the low-lying areas adjacent to the North Sea and the Baltic Sea. These are primarily Dutch, Zeelandic (Zeeuws, West Flemish), Frisian, Limburgish and Low Saxon (Low German). Also included are those languages that descended from autochtonous Lowlands languages and are used elsewhere; for example, Afrikaans, Lowlands-based emigrant languages, pidgins and creoles, and also English and Scots. “Lowlands cultures” are those cultures that utilize Lowlands languages or are clearly derived from such cultures."

Looking for Luhmann, Germany - Luhman - Family History & Genealogy Message Board - Ancestry.com

~ I thought I would show a post of a fellow researcher of the Luhmann name. The first time, I ran into Andrea Lang online while she and I were separately researching at Ancestry.com Later once again through the Rootsweb Hannover Kingdom mailing list. Here is an example with herpost and mine. Notice how I used to babble on and on, trying to throw everything out there.

We may have something here. I am frantically looking for my notes or Luhmann history. I do have ? Ann Meyer Or Ann ? Meyer marrying a Luhmann. But Nothing was said where this Meyer came from. I take it that she was a widow, and so was this her maiden name. Or was it her name when widowed.

I will definately find those papers so I can check dates and places.They start very early 1700's. It was done by a local man, who did have a Meyer there not related to me. Perhaps she could be related to yours.

I have a Meyer marriage with Margarethea Catharina Luhmann which happened later in their history. We have Valentine Luhmann and Henning Luhmann. There are many branches off of Luhmann tree. Pagel, Mueller, Schulz, Reinecke, Schlaphof etc. They were shepherds and cattle herders. In the early years, they intermarried amongst other shepherds and cattle herders. I have been wondering if the Ann Dorothy was maybe a branch of the Johan Juergen Meyer family. Ann and D"


I know, I should have shut up already. So I will now. I have to find another post of Andrea Lang's which explains that she found family in Missouri. I think with Mennerich or Menke name.

From the Greene county History book, see link.

~~~Robert Holm~~~~~

From Past and Present of Greene County, Iowa by E. B. Stillman,
1907
Pg. 643

Robert Holm
[There is a picture of Robert and his wife .]

Robert Holm, who carries on general farming on section 10,
Dawson township, is a native of Schleswig-Holstein, Germany,
born on the 16th of March, 1870. His parents were John C. and
Bernadine (Jensen) Holm, who were ikewise natives of that
country. The father, whose birth occurred in 1834,
died in Clinton, Iowa, in 1901, while the mother is still living there. In
the family were five children, of whom four are yet living: Philip, a
resident of Clinton, Iowa; Robert; Morris, who resides in Dawson, Iowa;
and Julius, who is a minister of the German Lutheran church, now
located in Texas.

Robert Holm was reared on his father's farm in Germany, and
had the advantage of good education in the public schools of his native
country. He was a youth of sixteen years when in 1886 he came to
America, his home being established in Clinton county, Iowa,
where he worked at farm labor for a few years. He then made a
visit to his parents in Germany, but was told that he could not
remain for he had left the fatherland in order to avoid serving in
the army. He then induced his parents to sell their property in
Germany and come to the new world with him. This they did and
the father purchased one hundred and sixty acres of
land, up which Robert Holm now resides. The son remained with his father and
assisted him in improving the farm until the latter's death, when he
purchased the place. He now has a fine property, on which he has
put six miles of tile, thus pr"............................Mr. Holm votes with 
          the democracy, but has never had desire forthe honors and emoluments of office.
          He and his wife hold membership in the German Lutheran church and 
          are well known in the community as representative young people,
          interested in all that pertains to progress and advancement in the
          community. Mr. Holm has led an active and useful life, industry
          being oneof his salient characteristics and the basis of the success 
          which he has  achieved.

That was the rest of the article about Robert Holm.
Would you like to see the picture? I will see if I can hunt it up.

Note: Made possible by google reader. You can read nearly all of this book.

See the privacy policy at margin on the right.

Genealogy with Lena B. Carstensen and Robert Holm surnames in Greene county Iowa.

It is amazing how one can over look a few little facts. Check out who else was from Jackson county Iowa and belonged to the Farnhamville area St. Peters Luth. church by Webster, Calhoun and Greene county Iowa.

Note: You remember Carstensen was second wife to our J.H. Williams son, Johann [first born ] William Meyer. And I think this is her family. His first wife was A. Grote. And yes J.H. Fred had a William as a son also, but he was born after 1882. And this is the same Carstensen family. Also relation to Nahnsen who did come from Clinton county, Iowa. Most of those from Sch. Holstein germany did come from Clinton county.From the Green biographie book of Greene county, Iowa


On the 7th of March, 1893, Mr. Holm was united in marriage to
Miss Lena B. CARSTENSEN, who was born in Jackson county, Iowa, on the 1st of January, 1873, and is a daughter of Godber and Dorothea (JOCHIMSEN) CARSTENSEN both natives of Germany. [The text is blurred here. The date '1st of January, 1873, and the names may not be spelled correctly.] On emigrating to the new world they became early settlers of Greene county, Iowa, and the father died in Dawson township in 1891, but the mother is still living. The marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Holm has been blessed with five children: George J.; Bertha; John H., who died at the age of four and a half years; Bernard T.; and Theodore J."


My mind is doing a little happy dance. Robert HOLM and CARSTENSEN are not new to me. But I happened to read my notes in my special book and saw that Robert HOLM was in Jackson county Iowa. According to this little clip from the Green book of Green county, Iowa, the CARSTENSEN family was from Jackson county or at least Lena was born there. Years ago, when I began searching Farnhamville, I had read a clipping given me by our special helper Christi Chance about her family's' Carstensen from Clinton county Iowa role as a founding father in the development of St. Peters church in the area of Farnhamville.
I assumed they were from Clinton county and no where else in United States, which one should not do in research

You know of course this will bring more searching action with the name Holm and Carstensen. And of course I will have to check the book and other research areas for more about each name to see what else comes up for the home area of Jackson county. I guess, I will have to locate that article again, and some research by Merna Hansen on St Peters church members to review. Of course, I will share it. [lol]
I have been kind of searching here and there to see a common denominator among family and friends. What brought Fred Meyer from Jackson county to
Greene county.
***What brought Fred Meyer from Jo Daviess county Illinois across the river to Jackson county. And does it have anything to do with a Goose Lake?
** Soon, I should show you a map of Jackson county, Iowa.



Note: Something to think on: Where Fred lived in Jackson county Iowa, where some of his Schenk lived, where he got married at Maquoketa ; all of these places are a great distance apart in Jackson county Iowa. It will be important to know who lived exactly where in 1870 there. Verl Matthews has done a lot of research on the family Nahnsen from Sch. Holstein going way back, which I have not shared here.
I may need to review some of the Nahnsen information at Ancestry.com.

just little excited me, jo

***Note: Be sure to hit previous or check the archives, and the search box to learn more of new aquired information on Fred's activities in Galena, Jo Daviess and Jackson county, Iowa, Amerika.

Scam Email "Re: From Steven John, from ... I Your Business Partnership." from "stjohn142" in ScamdexDB

I hope your all being careful, there a few new kinds of scam letters being sent out. Usually they are worded the same way. The one I saw lately was from the person below. I suppose he took my email from the internet from some source that I had posted. I have to admire this guy for being creative. I have always said to hubby that if they used their smarts, I would be tempted to fall for it. by that I mean it because I do have shirtail relatives in Africa somewhere, somehow. If not there maybe New Zealand or Papa Neu Guinea. This one at least led me to believe there was a Meyer person in Africa. But the words "bank " and "get rich" discouraged me immediately.

Come on conspirators, and future prisoners, get more creative and more smart.

My Heins family [who connected with the Meyer] lived in the Bergen kries Celle area by Hermansburg. Many of Maria Dorothea Heins ancestors and distant cousins had attended Hermansburg to take up Missionary work to go where ever there was a calling. I especially have found the name with connections back to Bergen with name Hohls,who connect to Meyer and Dagefoerde. The scammer could at least do his homework.

But then children, if your reading this, That is why they are scammers.
They didn't do their Homework, when they should have while young and in school!

Bucher, Books I Want

Who is the god of graciousness. I wish he would come to earth with his arms brimming with antique books. Gosh I could make my wish list a page long. Is it bad to be so wanting? I always want more after I get some of the more. Just never content. I want what is around the corner. In the genealogy field of course. Sure as long as I am busy working,working, I bet I could live in a shack. Okay, I'll upgrade that to a cute cottage shack.

Romantic or Practicality of Sensible Dorothea Schlaphoff

I checked my blog today and discovered my updated touches had disappeared. I had lost my battery power on my laptop and did not get it back for almost a day. When it went suddenly I had been working on this blog. I have managed to recover most of it. Sorry for that error. I nearly died for fear of the puter not returning. but it did by some accident. It restored my faith in "If you wait it will come."



Today according to other bloggers is suppose to be wordless Wednesday. I am going to do the best that I can to make it less words this wednesday. We all know it can't be WORDLESS. I'd like to dwell a little today on the Schlphoff family member - Dorothea Schlaphoff the Mail Order Bride.


Dorothea Schlaphoff left Hamburg ariving in New York, amerika 31.Mai.1870 on ship Silesia.>

The family Schlaphoff had spread from Raven to Rehlingen, Westergellersen before emigration to america. Johann Heinrich Christoph Schlaphof left home to go to school at Tellmer. At some point while he was there he worked on the Luhmann farm at Eichdorf. He married the landowners daughter, Dorothea Luhmann. Dorothea's daughters birth is documented to be at 1847 Tellmer. It was this daughter, Dorothea, who was the first of the Schlaphoff family to settle at Nebraska. Other family at Telmer and Rehlingen] to came to Amerika.

As the ship Silesia came from Hamburg 31.May.1870 to New York both Dorothea Schlaphoff and her friend Magdalena Rueter exited the ship. The Hamburg passenger list is hard to read. I can not tell if Magdalena is far from Dorothea on the list.


Had Magdalena also been temporarily at Telmer, or even Eichdorf. Jonas of Dahlenburg has several names of Rueter and Ruther in his tree with the name Luhmann. Some of his names came from a western area by Hamburg.
Note: I want to pursue this name Rueter again later. I tried to do some browsing on the name Ruther a few years ago and failed to find much of anything.

If I didn't already know why, I would be asking, why would Dorothea and Magdalena go to Cass county, Nebraska all by themselves? Did she or her friend in the Rueter family personally know anyone in Cass county, Nebraska?
The partial answer to that question as to why brings us to the family story relayed to me by Ms. Mertens. I find family stories fascinating, and even more so, if they are little community stories. I think think this is such a one. I took the excerpt below from July archives of my blog. Which comes from Ms Mertens at Ancestry.com and from some emails that I received from her a few years ago. I am so grateful for her help and response.

Dorothea Schlaphoff - a mail order Bride--
A Rootdigger: "ii. DOROTHEA SCHLAPHOFF, b. April 24, 1847, Germany; d. June 07, 1939, Murdock, Nebraska; m. FRED RUGE; b. February 05, 1847; d. August 08, 1919.



Notes for DOROTHEA SCHLAPHOFF:
Notes by John William Schlaphoff:
'The heroine of the family was Dorothea Schlaphoff who came to America in 1870 with her friend Magdalena Rueter. A pioneer by the name of Henry Oehlerking sent money for Dorothea to come and marry him. After she arrived she refused to marry him, saying that he was too old (by 20 years). She then married Fred Ruge and Magdalena married Henry. History does not record if Henry ever received a rebate.'"


I have always been a little fascinated by this story every since I heard it. There is something about Dorohea's courage that touches everyone. Perhaps it is too the little humor that Ms Mertens and her father had attached to it in the comment about the rebate.




Personal Speculation : I think my fascination lies in the courage of Dorothy that touches everyone.

As a woman I understand the biological clock that ticks. I understand that once a woman hit about age nineteen she is likely to be recorded as spinster. I don't know if it made a woman wince as it does in america?

As a woman who has the romantic child in me, I understand the need for romance, love, family relationships. I would think every bride has some in her. But in those days before nineteen hundred in Germany what she knew was that many marriages were arranged by parents. She has to be practical, but like our courageous Dorothea in those days of arranged marriages, she figured she could have somewhat of both. It seems to me to be practical, a adventurous and romantic notion all in one. As a confident lady, she must have known her parents would also help her; to do what ever they could to see that she was safe, even that far away.

Every bride wants a memorable wedding, I would think even in the west. Never frivolous. Practical, Sensible. When / how does it all get practical. Even now 2009 planning a wedding becomes both.

This million dollar question has come to mind.

Do you think Dorothea came with a Wedding dress?
We would each answer it with our own perspectives about life. Would it be based on your practical side or Romantic side of your mind / heart?

I think that if she needed her passage paid for by Oelerking, then she could afford the dress, or she maybe couldn't afford the dress. She knew she was getting married. She could very well have made room in that trunk for the dress. The dress could even be made over into something else or saved for her future daughters. It could have been shipped to her too at a great expense. But then one could be practical and put aside the dreams of a traditional Wedding gown and go with a beautiful special frock which could be used again and again at special occasions. Then she would have more room in her trunk for say books or something useful.

Was there a marriage in a church, a marriage outdoors, in someones home, at a legal establishment? It was at a time when many at first only had sod houses. I know Ministers covered a huge area. I would think no specific date could be planned. But I am not sure about that area of Nebraska.

Now, I assume that the groom made a special arrangement for her accommodations. Lodging somewhere other than his place while she had time to reconsider. I wonder if he knew ahead of time that Dorothea was coming with a friend.

I wonder too how aware her parents were of this arrangement during Dorotheas plans to become a Mail Order Bride. What would she have to do to get their consent, or was it their strong suggestion.



I tried to be short about Dorothea Schlaphoff this time, but with such a great subject as Mail Order Bride, it was impossible. I am feeling a bit sorry for those who wanted a short brief posting.

I would love to hear anyones thoughts and comments on the mail order bride.
