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.

Please check back, there is More to come.
