About German Casualties in the Franco-Prussian War, 1870-1871
This database contains 248 lists of German army officers and soldiers who either died, were injured, or went missing during the Franco-Prussian War. These lists were published in Berlin on a nearly daily basis during the war. They were later compiled into a single volume and represent nearly a complete record of German casualties from this war.

The Franco-Prussian War (July 19, 1870-May 10, 1971) was a war between France and Prussia, Prussia being supported by the German Confederation and other German states. The war resulted in the unification of the German Empire, the diminishment of French influence throughout Europe, and the territory of Alsace-Lorraine becoming part of Prussia.

This database contains 248 lists of German army officers and soldiers who either died, were injured, or went missing during the Franco-Prussian War.

I did know Juergen Hch. Wilhelm Meyer's military standing. I have to find the paper in my boxes. However, some of it has been remembered. But not exactly and it is frustrating for me at the moment. About four years ago, I asked about it online several times, I still have failed to run into that again. So, I will have to find the original source.

Wilhelm was taken prisoner and held at Metz France at Christmas 1870. He had typhoid fever or probably typhus and lived, which was not always the case, when one had typhus fever in those days. If your helping me look the word you might look for is the word for typhus. Flecktyphus

So far what I remember is that he was either fifth or sixth captain of fifth or sixth company. The infantier regiment was in the hundreds. Like maybe 136, 137 or 138 or 126, 127 or 128. Something close to that. So I will be frustrated awhile or I will just keep looking under all the Wilhelm Meyer names I am given, when I search.

It takes a lot of time and patience.
Do I have that?

Brothers and sisters of Janecke and Wolter frau.

More to come on these surnames for sure.

The Name WOLTERS from Oldendorf in Naturparks ELBUFER-DRAWEHN

In the Farnhamville St Peters church group there was some Wolters. I first noticed them because they were godparents to some children of my families of interest at the time. I had wondered why that could be the case. As I was searching over the churches cemetery listings, I noticed their name and the data entry on their tombstone. It merely said Mother and Father instead of a name.

Later, when I learned of some Wolter names in my Meyer Oldendorf church records, I was curious to know if they could be the same family. Often times it is shirt tail relation of someone else that the people are related to that immigrate. I guess for our people in a community, these people become close to them and they reperesent people from back home.

After I receive records from the church, I try to follow up with questions about those people who were in the records. I can't tie up the researcher too much, so I try to narrow down my question times. This answer came in regards to the name Wolters who was in another answer to a question about a sponser to My Jurgen Friedrich Meyer born 1851.

Don't get confused because it is another Jurgen Friedrich Meyer. And Yes, I wonder if he is relation. Since he is a babtismal sponser for our Juergen Hch. Wilhelm Meyer.

Wolter, Marie Elisabeth Wolter was born at Oldendorf. At the time she was married to a Schmidt, she was a babtismal sponser to one of the twins of Juergen Friedrich Meyer in 1859.

Note: I haven't covered that babtism of the Meyer Twins here at the Blog of Oldendorf yet. Which I should.

At this time I will mention that there was another Marie Elisabeth Schmidt mentioned once who was an Anbauers frau. Or Farmers wife in Oldendorf. This Marie Elisabeth Schmidt was sponser in 1847 to Meyer, Marie Katharine. Child of my Juergen Friedrich Meyer in Oldendorf. One of the two other sponsers was Katherine Marie Rohrs of Oldenorf? [She could be anyone] And a Katharine Dorothea Elisabeth Meyer a hauswirths daughter there. ??

When I saw the Marie Elisabeth Schmidt name I wondered, if she could be Juergen Friedrich Meyer's sister. His sister was born in 1804. Juergen Frd Meyer married in 1838. He moved to Oldendorf in 1845 when he became a landowner there by the Uncle Wilhelm Friedrich Ries family that married into the Luhmann family.

Wolters, Katharine Dorothea from Oldendorf.
In 1849 the name Wolters pops up again as sponser to Juergen Friedrich Meyer and Catharina Margarathea Luhmann's daughter. Again they are living at Oldendorf.

Wolter, Heinrich Friedrich a Musicus dasedbst.
In 1851 when Juergen Frd. and Catrina Margarethea Meyer youngest son Juergen Friedrich Meyer was babtised in 1851 we find that this Wolter was a godparent. Along with him the other two others. One was Johann Juergen Heinrich Saucke, a Hsw. in Oldendorf. The other was Juergen Friedrich Meyer, schulz in Oldendorf. [I sure would like to know more about him.]

Now is a good time to mention another family with connection to the name Wolters.

Daetz, {Wolters,Saucke}, Marie Dorothea Eliszabeth of Oldendorf. Survived Wittwe of the deceased Johann Juergen Gustaph Wolter of Oldendorf.
Church Marriage record Nr. 4/1846. Nahrendorf. She married Johann Juergen Heinrich Saucke. A young associate service farmhand with Roethen * and a beginning Hsw. In Oldendorf. He is the son of the Hsw. Johann Friedrich Saucke in Boitze and the deceased wife the same *Anna Elisab [get. or geb.] Fable.

Now if I go into this, it is another huge can of worms to be opened. Just note that I will return with and more on Saucke. There is the Saucke name in Oldendorf and in Farnhamville. As well as in Tosterglope along with Luhmann.

Wolter, Johann Friedrich. In 1881 he was a god parent to Hch Frd. Herman Meyer. [ son of Juergen Hch. Wilhelm and Maria Dorothea (Heins) Meyer] Nr.24/1881. The other one was a beekeeper at Breese, Johann Hinrich Heins.

Wolter, Johann. A Hsw. in Oldendorf was God parent to Heinrich Wilhelm Meyer. Nr. 3/ 1884. The other god parent was Wilhelm Klug a Kothner in Oldendorf. Little Heinrich died that same year as wilhelm Meyer's family emigrated to Amerika.

The Meyer families Church Seal, [Siegel.]

I made a major mistake yesterday. I suppose with my luck it will circulate forever! I never should have recreated the church of Nahrendorf Seal. I was uneasy all night.
The word difference was Kirohensiegel and Nahrendorf. That was all.

Now, even though I have to go into work early today, I am going to show you the best copy I have of the original copy. I found it in the Meyer/ Luhmann binder. I regret that the right side is cropped too close. If only I had adjusted to make up for the left side margin being so wide. But for now it is something we have to put up with until I can find the original. I only hope it is in a safe place. Which, I suppose was the original intention. But at least now we have the original view. The folds had gotten so bad that I did make a major error. I glued another paper on to the back of it to make it more secure. I suspect it was not the right kind of glue. I don't know what to do about it any more. I think the damage has been done. I am very sorry.

So now, here is the body of the document with a scan done years ago. Again, Sorry about everything cropped too close. At least the entire right side is there. Nothing is cut off. I will find the original while I finnish my filing of my many boxes of papers. [I am sure you get the picture.]
The document is actually a yellowed paper. This scanner program really sucks. I can not usually get a parched look nor sepia. This is just not the true color. It shouldn't be pink. but then it is better than lavender or green tones.

We do see the name Anna Maria and then something that looks like johanaus and then Henke or Hencke.

A copy of a enlargement. The side are shortened even more, but we can see most of the words better! Now lets see, if we can understand the words better.

We need to see the names of Johan Heinrich Heins, Juergen Heinrich Wilhelm Meyer [ born *1843] and Anna Maria Henke, Maria Dorothea Heins [born *1851] or even Heinss. Possibly Juergen Friedrich Meyer and Cathrina Margarethea Luhmann,

Wendland - Breeser Grund 09 - Little tree, little tree........

Breeser Grund 09
Originally uploaded by thoguenther

Little tree, little trees, please get out of the way. Don't block my view. I would like to see all of my lovely beautyful tree! Oh how pretty it could be, if you would just get out of the way. Yaaaah! Obstacles, please get out of my way. While, I try to see the whole complete tree.

Gunther has really found the most beautyful tree. I wonder, if I could edit out those little shrubs obstacles in front of my view.
Isn't that the way it is though?. Sometimes we have to search other family trees. After we do that it seems that it enables us to find more information for our own! Had we not looked at that one tree, we would not have found that important piece of information that we needed. There is the old quote "We can't see the forest for the trees."

Thank you, Guenther for allowing me to use your great pictures. He doesn't live in Oldendorf area, but for some reason he has some photos of Duebbekold and Goehrde.

I wonder if Flicker would have a program for Sepia tones. I wish I could find a way to change the black and white photos I have posted on this blog into the Sepia tones.

Breeser Grund 13- Dropped Branches of the Great Tree

Breeser Grund 13
Originally uploaded by thoguenther

Just as the branches have fallen from this beautyful great big tree, I too have family branches laying apart from my family tree. They are the fallen undiscovered branches. Unseen by my eye. They are like Orphans. If I could find them, I would adopt them in my family tree. I would nurture, and love them and share them.

I have undiscovered families of the daughters of Juergen Heinrich Friedrich and Katharina Margarethea from the Oldendorf village. Doris Meyer, who married Koenig, Magarete Meyer married Stille, A daughter unknown married Schmobel [?} Mary married Fehring. I have two unknown Meyer brothers. One stayed in germany and the other immigrated to Oregon. A unfound family of Henke. And many many other fallen branches of many other surnames of the family tree.

Will I find these people. Only time will tell. If you have clues or hints to help me find them, please comment.

In the Meyer Family Book there is a mention of Schmobel under the ? Heading of daughter of Friedrich and Catharina Margaretha Meyer. It mentioned that this daughter married a Schmoble, who was in the Shipping business. I think in Germany.

I went to my other blog on Meyer and Luhmann familien names and sort of copied the tree of Juergen Heinrich Friedrich Meyer. This way there is dates of birth for you to see. I hope that it will help you understand everything I am trying to tell you at the moment. The churchs' responses to my question about the kind or children is that they have nothing further in years time about them.??

The 4 names - Koenig, Schmobel, Fehring, Stille has not been on any of Juergen Hch. Wilhelm Meyer and Cathrina Luhmann Meyer's childrens birth records. The sisters might have been godparents before their marriages. And they may have been married more than once. That is possible. I just am not sure if they have been godmothers to any of Williams children. If so, the married names do not match up with the names listed in the Meyer Book. As far as I know this Meyer family book is the only place the married names are mentioned.

The obituary of Juergen Hch. Wilhelm Meyer states that two sisters came to america. One brother went to Oregon. GermOne brother stayed in Germany. When the other known brother Juergen Hch. Friedrich Meyer left Hamburg in 27 - 28.April.1869 he was suppose to have sister Maria, and Leise with him. Leise Or Liese maybe is Elisabeth.

LIESE could be Elisabeth. Nearly all the girls except one have the name Elisabeth. It could also be a girl born after little Fred Meyer, if the Father remarried.

SCHMOBEL = 00 Marries an unknown daughters name. I have looked the name is practically nonexistent. What else could it be. Schnabel? Schnebel?
Any suggestions?

Note 1. I have no idea where the original information came from FOR THE MEYER BOOK. WHERE DID THEY GET THE INFORMATION which would mention the names of the unknown brothers. The only document in the book that mentions the unknown brothers is in the obituary of Juergen Heinrich Wilhelm Meyer. That document was shown in the Meyer book. The Meyer book was a compilation of information submitted by many relatives in the basic Meyer tree from Oldendorf, Nahrendorf. There was no footnotes used and no documentaion, other than photos. I suppose the obituary was submited at the time of his death to the local newspaper by one of his relatives. He did keep some journals. No one other than Lois Carter has mentioned them. She has not said, if she even peeked into them. She does own them. [She Denies that she has a Diary. But at one point in life events, she did tell me she had/has the journal.]

Note 2. I suspect that this information might pertain to William's Mother's family. The Luhmann immigration. Perhaps somehow the information was misinterpreted. But, I have not proven a Luhmann descenant in Oregon. There is one there from Michigan.? Those are not from Eichdorf. ?? Maybe more on this at another time.

Note 3. Schmobel Schmoble. Verl Matthews told me that one of the children in the family [Meyer/ Nahnsen I think] went to visit this family while her son was in Scotland at that time. I wanted to contact that persons daughter from the Nahnsen family, but I was told there was Alzeheimers involved there. At that time Verl was really sick. So he didn't check into it for me. I should see who there could be to ask in the Nahnsen family. Verl made a statement after the other one, that William was so unhappy about the change of life in germany from what Germany was before it became Hannover Kingdom. Then especially from that to the Federation of German states under the second King william and Bismark. [Prussia] I can see why.

Note 4. If I could have some luck with the vital records of Marriages. Maybe I could find something more on this through that means. Standesamt. Civil Registration
Of Births, Deaths and Marriages. Local offices and maybe through census at the Morman records. I have found 1925 records at these areas in Germany.
the downside is that economy these days does not let me enter much money for the cause. Requesting Records could get expensive. Also from the church.
Note 5. I learned recently they would probably need more than I was sending to them. Because of the cost to cash in a check and the inflation of our dollar.

MY SPECULATION: I suspect after Katharina Margaretha Luhmann died; the husband Juergen Friedrich Meyer remarried. I have no proof yet. If that is the case, I find it very strange that nowhere in the Meyer Family Book is a second marriage mentioned. Unless that is the only way the family wanted to sort of mention it was with the obituary after Juergen Hch. William Meyer's death. As mentioned above that he mentioned two unknown unrecorded Meyer brothers.

William immigrated 1884. After his father had died. His death was 1879. His mother died 1856. When Fred jr. was about four or five years old.

Fred Jr. himself emigrated from Hamburg in 28.april.1869. So both sons would have been there during the remarriage years of the father, if he had done so. If the father had decided not to remarry there were older sisters to help care for little Fred jr. and his young sisters. I am sure there were cousins, who were very helpful. It is just strange that nothing was mentioned. It must be the reason that William states he has two other brothers. Either they are illegitimate from ealier years or they were born after Fred. Maybe they just were not recorded among the records that I had requested from the church archives. Perhaps, they could be recorded in another church archives?

I find nothing on the two extra brothers. !!??
More still on the information about his sisters at another time.

If you have any suggestions here. I'd love to get some hunting hints.

Genealogie of the Colonist Mosel From Boitzenburg

Since I have developed and interest in the eight colonists who went to Farnhamville; [The county of Calhon, Greene county and the county of Webster.]I decided awhile back to research the family Mosel. Since my dad always included the Mosels into that group. I thought it was best to start in Iowa.

I was lucky to find a person who had already done this. Herr Slotten was kind enough to write to me and give me some information, which I then shared with the Mosel family. I understand that Norma also wrote back to Mr. Slotten.

The Mosel family came from Boitzenberg, Mecklenber-Schwerin which is on the Elbe river in the Hamburg Germany area. It was part of East Germany after the war, The Elbe river was the dividing line.

Laura, Paul, Carl, Alfred, Frank, Ernest, ?, ?, ?. This is what I think
it might be, but have never asked and Wife does
not know all and her mother has no interest. The only one to stay in
Iowa was Henry. Henry did go up to Minnesota
and see the other members. When Henry died in 1985 only Laura, Carl and
Paul were alive according to his obit.

Emma died in 1900 in Dawson Twp, Greene County, Iowa (Near Paton).
Final citizenship papers for 1901 are also
located in Geene county at the court house in Jefferson. I have a copy
that was made by one of the sisters for me.
The data from Germany was translated by one of the German professors
from Wartburg College, Waverly, Iowa.

Hanover Germany at one point.

I have only started working with this family, so organization is still in
progress. I was working on my side of the family
and only pulled data for this side because I was in the tapes. I did my
research on Calhoun County at the
Rockwell City library since that is where the geneological data is
located. If you have data that is for 1925,
the state census lists the parents of individuals if they filled it in
correctly which is not allways the case.
The library has tapes for 1870, 1880, 1885,1895,1900,1905,1910,1920, and
1925, They also have the plat
maps and cemetary data plus obituary index plus newspaper tapes. The
Lusmann's are still in Farnhamville
but I have not talked to any of them in a couple of years. Not home long
enough to see everyone unless a scheduled activity since both families are located there. Hopefully this will get some things clear. The answers
to some of your questions will have to be done by the Henry Mosel
sisters, but my mother in law has no interest
in this. I need to find the correct one and probably can get other
data. Still working on updating Family Tree Maker to put all notes in. This is the first effort put into the family so is
taking time to compile. I do know the cousins that
are my age who are the grandchildren of Henry Mosel.
The data for the Seil, Nammany and others will have to wait until I can
view a tape at the FHC if it is still here.> --

Emigration 1889 schiff Marsala Passengers were August Grote, Heinrich Schroeder, David Naefke vom Oldendorf nach Iowa


Click on the Images for a larger view.

The 29.03.1889 Passenger list of ship Marsala says clearly they were from Oldendorf on their way to Iowa.

August Gradt = Grote age 40.
David Nafke or David Naefke age forty, [should be Diedrich]
wife Dorothea age 35.
Wilhelm Putfahrt
Heinrich Schroeder 50 years old laborer
Wife - frau Maria Instead of Kate. age 40

The USA Federal Census of 1900 says that Dick Naefke,
Heinrich Schroeder were residents of Reading township
in Calhoun county, Iowa.

August Grote went to Dawson in Greene county, Iowa.

Iowa State Census, 1895
Census & Voter Lists

Name: August Grote
Age: 46
Race: White
Birthplace: Germany
RESIDENCE: Dawson, Greene

This is August Grote provided to me by Mark Kuhlman.
the source is the
1982 Calhoun county Iowa book. Taylor Publishing company.
By Historical Society of Rockwell city Historians.

There was a Henry Schroeder at Calhoun. However, I do not think it is the same one.
That Henry Schroeder was born Oct. 1855. His wife Kate was born Oct. 1865.
Mary Schroeder wife of Fred Schroeder was born Jan 1848. I have been told anyway that Fred Schroeder immigrated around July fourth 1883 and went to see his friend Fred Meyer at Churdan swamps and stayed the winter with him. [ Imagine how glad Fred would be to see an old friend.]

Census Henry Schroeder was age 50. The wife mentioned was age 40. There were several children. Even a little Henry.

These surnames were entwined in America.
Note: For update explanation on the PUTFAHRT or PUFAHRT,PUFFAHRT see the link.

Note: For More about Schroeder immigration see those from Mucklingen and Dahlenburg with Warnecke and Seil. May 1883.

Ernst Mahnke on Schiff mit Luhmann, Mosel.

I just thought you might want to know. I should tell you that when blogging our old blogs fall to the bottom. Then each new blog rises to the top of our page. It makes sense.

[Note: So the older blog which states that I found a surprise name linked to my Luhmann immigration to America is a bit lower than this blog. I took out a draft in order to add this in.]

Heck, I was surprised to see Heinrich or Heinerich Mosel family on the same ship. His 1st wife Emma was from Bleckede, I hope I recall that correctly. And Heinrich Mosel was from Hinterhagen, Boitzenburg. Herr Christian Friedrich Luhmann [frau] wife was probably from the Bleckede area as well. Her familien name was Schmidt. As for Ernst Luhmann, his spouse information was a bit unclear.
{Note: see the Luhmann chart [further in a post or in archives] given to me by Herr Frd. Burmester of Bleckede.]

Ernst Luhmann's spouse may have been Grothe. Or it may not have been Grothe.
The August Grote family at Farnhamville, Iowa came from Goeddingen. His wife Hagemann came from Niendorf. His Immigration 1889.

Any connection to Herr Ernst Mahnke is possible. I just had to look him up.
His geb. or birth *1878. His destination was New York and he was from Berlin. Which was different than the others listed together in the brackets.

Luhmann Schiff Columbia passage on Hamburg Passage list, 15-25.april.1892

I thought you might like to see the ships passenger list of the Luhmann family.

At the source we do find the same record of the Luhmann family on ship columbia 25 april.1892. But I should warn you that it is listed under Lukmann.

I would not be surprised to see that the Mother's family Schmidt came along.
[A family Schulz was also on the ship. Note to myself]

Note: It is a surprise name included. Ernest Mahnke. When I get time I will check the census for Ernst Mahnke. Isn't this fun. Maybe some of you already know.!

Bleckede- Schmiebrecht Luhmann, Kruse, Jacobs, Grothe, Brese, Brockman,Mueller, Steinbach, Blank, Meier, Tippe

Welcome to my blog site of my Genealogie, Genealogy of Surnames from the Nahrendorf Church bei Oldendorf, Goehrde, Sueschendorf, Eichdorf, Dahlenburg, and Bleckede. I have information on Luhmann, and Meyer, the Seil's many branches. Of particular interest to me are my families of Oldendorf. And that involves so many other family names!!.

I would like other people with relatives from this area to please let me know. Perhaps you would like to add them here.??. It would be so nice to see a collection of names growing. Wouldn't that help us all.

I would like to learn more about the people of this place. You will see my various questions I have about the people, customs, land, history, relation. If your here to read, I hope you can contribute, share, and comment, correct me, and ask any question about my information. You can comment or email me.

It will become obvious to you that this is a work in progress. Some of my work on one day may be more involved two weeks later. So you will need to check back to see my changes. If you wish to subscribe to my little blog, let me know.


All surnames familien names of the Ernst Luhmann family. Ernst born 1811 at Eichdorf and probably babtised at the Lutheran church of Nahrendorf.
We have here also the locations of Bleckede and Dahlenburg.

Anna Brese was from Nahrendorf.

THIS IS YOUR LUCKY DAY. THIS IS THE FIRST SHOWING OF THIS DOCUMENT OF THE ERNST LUHMANN BRANCH OF SCHWIEBRECHT LUHMANN family tree that came from the Bleckede area near the Eichdorf family LUHMANN. It is a copy of the original rough sketch. Handwritten in german.

Note: Friedrich Burmeister an eighty three year old man at the time of his research for me stated the name was Schmiebrecht. In the other information on the Luhmann family members at Eichdorf that I received from Hans Kregel, the name was stated as Schwiebrecht. Also make note of the information given in Heinrich Borstelmann's book for the orts area of Eicdorf. I would tend to go along with that spelling

I will spend more time on this chart above of family history. I will give you links to my Luhmann family records at

A Rootdigger: July 2008.

There is a bit of repeating of some of the church documents. You can go into august or go back to June for more of the family. There is plenty on the Meyer family at Oldendorf. There you will find Saucke.

If you look here you will see that they are right next to Heinrich Mosel.!! What an amazing discovery. I wonder who else?. My grandmother - Annie Seil came that same year.

Notice: There was that rough sketch of ancestors of Ernst Luhmann family that emigrated to Lohrville. Some of this family later moved to Goodhue county, Minnesota. One sister lived in Murdock in Cass county, Nebraska. Several people still live in the area of iowa by my other relatives in Greene and Calhoun county, Iowa. One Living member, who I have written to lives in Oregon.

Note: Research by Friedrich Burmeister. His stamp is at the bottom of the page.
There are a total of three pages of his research. Handwritten in german. Would anyone care to help me with translation.


Picture of ship Frisia.
I might have another one stored somewhere.

My family journeyed to Hamburg in February. This was written in one of Annie Bennetts letters in the round robin packet in the 1960's. I have found the date they left Hamburg for Amerika. I believe I did find it in the Hamburg list. It was22.02.1884. I have to find the source again for you. Sorry. They arrived in New York on April 8, 1884, It seems nearly a months passage doesn't it?

This page has the Henry Meyer age 18.

Meyer Emigration from Hamburg 08.04.1884 on ship FRISIA to New York

They arrived on 08.04.1884 at New York port. Lets take a look at the first page of the passenger list.

There were two other Meyer passengers on this ship.
Heinrich Meyer age 18 - laborer.
Herrman Meyer age 17 - tailor

My father said they were not our Meyer.

Also on board the ship were members of the Dagefoerde family from Bergen kreis Celle. The spelling may be Dagefor. At times one finds the spelling Dagevor. This family also went to Illinois and to Calhoun Iowa. Dagefoerde was pastor from Manson, Iowa. The church was near Pomeroy. Jolley must be noted. All of Butler of Calhoun county. | Pomeroy, IA Tornado July 1893

Rockwell City Map | United States Google Satellite Maps

Note: See the Calhoun county, Iowa history book. Google book search. One can view this. The page speaks of Dagefoerde and a Pastor Heinrich Meyer, who took over this parish. He might have some connection to the Heinrich Meyer on board the ship with them. However, the pastor Heinrich Meyer was born around August 1863 and Immigrated around 1887 or 1890's. There was an error in census with correction. ?? If I recall correctly his wife was a Schulz or Schultze. She had died before 1915. The son Erich married a daughter of this pastor Dagefoerde. For a time they lived in Bruning Nebraska. See: for Heins information and many links to Dagefoerde information. Hohls and Meyerhof[f].

Members of the Eight Colonists - Meyer, Heins, Seil , und Luhmann emigrated to Lohrville, Iowa

Welcome to my site about the Colonists from Oldendorf, Nahrendorf who settled around the area of Farnhamville, Iowa.

Some of our ancestors came to America from Eichdorf and Oldendorf. While they lived at Oldendorf, and worked as park rangers in Roethen. They attended the Luth. church at Nahrendorf.

They emigrated to Lohrville, Calhoun county, Iowa. Four years later they moved. In Calhoun county Iowa they attended a church near Farnhamville, Iowa. The church was St. Peters ev. Lutheran church. This picture is of the main street in Farnhamville, Calhoun county, Iowa.

The street looks like any other small town street.

My father said there was a "colony" of eight members, who came from germany to Farnhamville, Iowa. Most of the eight people of the Colony came from Oldendorf.

1. Ernst, Friedrich Luhmann - Eichdorf und Bleckede. Bargmoor- Emigrated april 1892 (Frau Schmidt.)
2. Hch. Saucke - Oldendorf.Emigrated 1883. [Frau - Wolters und Daetz familien name.]

Our family became so involved with this area of Iowa through the marriages with the family Nahnsen. I will have more on that at another time. I can give you links if you like. email me. arootdiggerat

I will come back and add more about all of these colony members from the church Nahrendorf. Some may have history still to be found through Dannenberg, and the Darchau archives.
Some of the people from Oldendorf, Nahrendorf first went to Joliet, Will county, Illinois. Fritz Schroeder and Wilhelm Seil.

The family of Heinrich or Henry Dohrmann also went to Joliet, Will county Illinois.

Farnhamville residents --- This picture taken in 1916 at the Bandshell in Farnhamville has descendents of some Ancestor members from Oldendorf and other villages surrounding Nahrendorf. Nahnsens were from Schleswig-Holstein, but they married Meyer women from Oldendorf. Mosel go back to Boizenburg, a municipality in the district of Ludwigslust, in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Germany. However, their wives were from the west side of the Elbe. Some Mosels were said to live in Bleckede. Vogels were from Bohemia. Kanning from Nienburg and or Heemsen. [ Minnesota Kanning and Iowa Kannings connect.]

Farnhamville, Iowa is a city located in the county of Calhoun and Webster county, near the Greene county border. That is why you find that Greene county settlers attended this church. Many of our relatives lived at Webster county, which is also located near the corner by Calhoun county, Iowa. Fort Dodge, and Guthrie are often mentioned hey are in the county of Webster.

Source: These pictures were taken from a little book about the little town of Farnhamville, which I used, when I was at their county library, which was at Rockville. I wish I could find this book to keep for myself. I will try and see if I can round up the name of the book about the celebration of Farnhamville. It may have been called " Then and Now".

Note: Boizenburg - It is situated on the right bank of the Elbe, 53 km west of Ludwigslust, 25 km northeast of Lüneburg and 50 km east of Hamburg. Old GDR.

Oldendorf, Nahrendorf, Colonists to Joliet, Will county in Illlinois

Some of the people from Oldendorf, Nahrendorf first went to Joliet, Will county, Illinois. Fritz SCHROEDER and Wilhelm SEIL.
At some point, Wilhelm Seil's mother joined him. They later lived together in Greene county, Iowa. Her name was Ilse Marie (BROOKMAN) Seil. From Dahlenburg. Her husband Johann Hch. SEIL may have come along or maybe he died in Hannover kingdom.

The family of Heinrich or Henry DOHRMANN also went to Joliet, Will county Illinois. He was married to a Dorothy Seil.* They married at Hamburg. No documents have been found on this family. [source of Dohrmann family information - I have only a letter and his published tree from Tom Vogel.] They settled at Farnhamville, Iowa.
