I am looking for information on Johann and Christina Zoller Schwenk. They arrived in Zeeland in 1904. Johann died 11 or 19 May 1910. Where is he buried? Christina was naturalized on 8 November 1911. She was residing in Venturia at the time. When did she die and where is she buried? She may have been related by marriage to Jacob Trautman of Zeeland. Does anyone know more about them or their families of origin. They both were born in Worms.

Dear Sir;
Looking for information on Adam Delzer who emigrated to this country in late 1800. Have heard he entered via Baltimore and came after his son, also named Adam Delzer. They were of German/Russian decent. One of them arrived on a ship by the name of Wilhelm DeGroot?
My husband Francis Xavier Rheinhold Delzer wants to add his family name to the Statue of Liberty monument but needs to prove it should be there. A one hundred dollar contribution is required and I plan to make this rememberance in honor of his birthday Dec 6th of 1999.
If you can help me it would be greatly appreciated.

Several of his family have done some genealogy but it was not specific about the actual entry...they do say however that the son and father were named the same name and came to North Dakota. My husband was reared in a small town called Zeeland. He is a mining engineer and left North Dakota years ago when he went to work for Anaconda and U. S. Steel in South America. He was a Fulbright Scholar in Germany at 14 and graduated UND at the age of 18. He never voices any need for material things and I think this family thing would be something
that would really make him happy. Thanks, Eloise Reynolds Delzer....

Hi, I am looking for info on my great Grandfather and Great grandmother.
Aksel Petersen Vinge came to America in 1882 and according to the Police records of Trondhjem he was heading to Sioux Falls. In 1887, he paid for a ticket to bring Gyda Marie Ottesen over. The police records show she was going to Dell Rapids, S.D.
They were married in 1888 (March) and their honeymoon was spent moving to Ashley N. D.
Aksel had a brother, Peder Gerhardt and a sister Anna Marje who also came over to America. I do not know when. I am thinking that they were in the same vicinity as Aksel (he was the oldest - b. 1864). According to an great aunt (in a tape recording) Peder was killed by steam engine that blew up (when?) and Anna passed away from 'running tuberculosis'. I do not know if they died in S.D. or did they go to North with Gyda and Aksel?
Any directions you could tell me to go in, would be greatly appreciated.
Thank-you for your time!
Sincerely, DAVID Vinge

Hi! In a note regarding my great grandfather, Daniel Huber, died Sept 28,1905, it said " see also 5 Oct 1905 ZEELAND NEWS page 7, col. 1." I have looked at the Heritage Center at Bismarck and they have no record of that paper. Does anyone know what happened to the old files or even when it ceased printing?
I would love to have the obituary that was in that paper. Thank you! Wanda

Can You Help? I am trying to locate information about my Great Grandfather Andreas F. Lehr. He married Christine Meyer in Kassel, S. Russia and came to the U.S. in December 1858. They had the following children: Fredrick, Sam, Andrew, Mary and Albina. They migrated from Tripp, Hutchison County, S. Dak. in 1885 and their homestead was just south of Lehr, ND. If you can me help locate information please e-mail me @ WWAKEFI@prodigy.net. Need help with records of any kind.

I am not very computer savvy, but I did managed to find the McIntosh County Families Page. I am doing research into the Lehr Family, who migrated to McIntosh around 1885 from SD. Andreas F. Lehr was my Great Grandfather. I believe he was part of the establishment of the City of Lehr about 1898. I found information about this in the Lehr 1898- 1948 Golden Jubilee book.
I have not been able to locate his burial information so far. Mrs Lehr Andreas wife (Christina Meyer) remarried a Leno after his death. She may have been living Lehr about 1938 as I found her name in the Ashley Golden Jubilee book from 1938. She may be buried in or around Lehr, but I have not found that either.

Mr. and Mrs. August Sukut

June 7, 1887, marked the milestone of a great experience in the lives of Mr. and Mrs. August Sukut when their boat docked in the New York harbor. Here they found the beginning of a new and vast land that offered much to those who were ready to prove themselves worthy of its riches and blessings. Leaving New York, Mr. and Mrs. Sukut began the seemingly endless journey to Bowdle, S. D.

Here they were met by his brother Wilhelm, who had come to this country three years earlier, and was at this time settled in the Beaver Creek area. Thence began the search for land upon which to build a home and make a livelihood. A covered wagon, a team of oxen, and many days of driving, brought them to a place about 20 miles northeast of where Wishek now stands, on section 12-134-70, in Logan county.

In spite of many reverses and hardships, this place offered a home and a good living for a family of 13 children. The first house was built of virgin prairie sod. The closest railroad was Ellendale, N. D. From five to six days were required to make this trip with the streamlined Oxen Mobile. Food was at a premium. Buffalo bones were gathered and hauled into Ellendale and this provided a little cash with which to purchase flour and a few necessities.

Meat was almost unknown for the first winter and great rejoicing was in the home when on one occasion they were able to catch a wild rabbit. In 1889 a prairie fire razed the country and destroyed their home. Penniless, homeless, and courage sorely tried, but not defeated, Mr. Sukut went as a laborer and worked for one dollar a day on the Martin Young Ranch. On Saturday night the trip home was made on foot, so that he could visit his family. The luxury of a mail service amounted to, not daily service, nor twice a week,, but twice a year, until Kulm, was built. On one occasion Mr. Sukut carried a small bag of flour 30 miles for his family.

August Sukut, son of Wilhelm Sukut, was born June 17, 1862, in Paris, Bassaradia, South Russia. In the year 1884 he wed Juliana Bogner, who was also born in Bassaradia, South Russia, and to this union 9 boy and 4 girls were born: Edward, of Napoleon, N. D.; Daniel, Kidder, S.D.; Marie ( Mrs. Karl Zimmerman), Napoleon, N. D.; August, who served in the first World War and was killed in action on Armistice Day: Wilhelm Ellendale, N. D.; Julius, Wishek, N. D. ; Mileta ( Mrs. George Scharf), Wishek, N. D.; Gottlieb, of Lehr, N.D.: Emma ( Mrs. Arthur Bender), Accampo, Calif.: Aaron, Wishek, N. D.; Gideon, Aberdeen, S. D.; and Ester ( Mrs. Andrew Boschee), of Lehr, N. D.

Mr. August Sukut passed away on February 10, 1929, and Mrs. Sukut passed away on March 6, 1947. A young son, Ferdinand, died in 1897, at the age of 7 years. Not only did the old homestead provide a home for the living, it is also the family resting plot.
