Helpful link -izn-AIDA online Gemeinden Göhrde und Röthen

Today I only have a simple link to share about our Roethen. It should serve as a helpful link. I suspect there were many workers, where they all lived is unknown. But Oldendorf bei Nahrendorf was one place.

Blogger from 'Applestone Cottage '-- Shares Her Trip to Galena Illinois

~~~ Her Trolley pic. I have a thing about Trolleys.~~~

I have made the most wonderful discovery about Applestone Cottage blog, which is not only pretty to view, but it is informative as well. What I found, was a blog full of pictures about a little tour in Galena Illinois. I am sure by now you all know my Fritz - Fred Meyer went there in 1869 to live with a blacksmith family who may have been working with Lead mining. We are not sure how long Fred stayed, because he was found across the river in Jackson county Iowa in 1870 census. [And we don't know much at all about Leise, and Mary].
According to Applestone cottage's account the President Grant's home was in existence already in 1860. To think they lived by my Three Meyers, Ahrens, and Mollemann. Check out the Applestone Cottage link below now and see the visit to Galena and more
.
Feel free to enjoy her blog. She is also an empty nester from the northern Packer state, Wisconsin. I am amazed at how many visitors she has had, and she has only had the blog less than a few months time. But then it is beautiful. See here for yourself.


From Blog--Applestone Cottage:
"The town's people built this home for Grant and his wife after the war for
2,500 dollars. The state of Illinois was deeded this from the Grant family and
the city of Galena." She says population is about 4,000.

Note: The sign said 1860 on one of her pictures. The war was over a few years before Fred came to America. After 1865 or so. Hmm, I wonder if Mr. Ahrens or Mollemann were in the war.

I am so grateful for Cynthia's post. It is nice to know too how close it actually is for a visit, but I wouldn't be able too for Quite awhile. With her blog, I feel as if i might have seen it for myself. I got the general feel for the city. She has another one on Galena. I also found her Lake Pepin/ Ingalls blogs of interest. Thank you, Cynthia.


Note: There has been mention of a connection with a Grant family, somehow??? Anyone in the know?

Seil familien namen - family name

~~~~~~~~~~ SEILs ~~~~~~~~~












August W. Seil

1---Annie Seil, granddaughter of August William SEIL from Dahlenburg and Uelzen. [ She was also a Child of Lizzie Seil Jaeschke]


It's time to discuss further the SEIL family from Dahlenburg and Oldendorf, bei Nahrendorf.


Besides the SEIL from Dahlenburg, many other Seil names and locations have appeared in documents. Already at one point or another I have mentioned the familien namen Seil from other locations:

11--Heinrich Seil geb. ab. 1859 bei Oldendorf.
[ oo - Mary Ahrens from Bleckede] Below here is a son Carl Seil on our left. Carl Seil and Dwight were fishing friends. Carl came up from
Iowa to fish at the southern Minnesota lakes with Dwight.

Evidently a card received at Sunnyslope Farm in Watowan county one christmas from Carl Seil's family.

111- Juergen Friedrich Seil a farmhand from Lueben oo 30.04.1822 Catharina Maria Luhmann marriage at Eichdorf / Nahrendorf. [Hers -*1794- +1848]

lV-- The Juergen Christoph Heinrich Seil of Breese oo 16.11.1810 Margaretha Magdalena Luhmann marriage at Eichdorf / Nahrendorf [ Hers - *1791 -]

V--- Marg. Dor. [neeSeil] Meyer. Her name came to me from the church. Here is a portion of my past post where she is mentioned. " This was the most important question to ask. It was the god parent of our Juergen Heinrich Friedrich Meyer geb.1851. Who was he. The brief explanation did not help much to supply meaning to any reading between the lines.Juergen Friedrich Meyer, schulze of Oldendorf oo- md 18. april.1834 with Margaretha Dorothea (Bausch) Schroeder widow of Juergen Heinrich Schroeder of Oldendorf. Juergen Friedrich Meyer's parents were Hauswirth Johann Heinrich Meyer of Sueschendorf and his wife Marg. Dor. Seil."

Not much more here

1---Lizzie Seil [Dahlenburg and Uelzen > Hildesheim connection of her mothers forefathers familiennamen KORN] > her father - August Friedrich Wilhelm Seil of Dahlenburg

More will follow shortly. I would like to spend more time on August Friedrich Wilhelm Seil of Dahlenburg. Family names of Brookmann, Schmidt, [Korn, Culemann, Lietz, Hofmann from Himbergen Uelzen]

Several Breese villages in the Goehrde area get confusing. I think this is not the one refered to by my families' church records from Nahrendorf.
