I am looking for information on my grandmother's grandfather's arrival into the United States. I do have a little bit of information already, but just can't seem to find the correct places to go.

Are there any websites, that will be able to provide me with what I am looking for. Some of the sites that I have looked at so far don't go back as far as I need to go.

His name is "Meron SEMENOK", came from Antiverpin on Oct 11, 1901. Ported in New York some time later. Eventually settled down in Fredonia or Kulm, North Dakota, and became US Citizens in 1903.

Any more information, or where to go to find more information is greately appreciated. Thank you

I am looking for information on the Christ? KRUEGER that fathered a daughter Ottilia RIEBHAGEN with Mary RIEBHAGEN about 1902. Ottilia married John SCHWEITZER and lived in Alfred ND.

Ottilia was raised by the RIEBHAGEN grandparents, Jacob and Wilhemein until she married John.

Rumour was that KRUEGER was half Indian, which I think was just that. Cited black hair as evidence, I am sure amny Germans had very dark hair as well.


Marla Gray Wed Jul 14 07:22:05 2004
I'm trying to gather information on Ryder SCHIEFFELBEIN born March 11, 1908 in Ryder, ND.

I have found a Ryder J. SCHIEFFELBINE in the Logan County Cemeteries, page 78. Is it possible if someone can tell me if this Ryder has the same birth year?

Also in the Logan County cemeteries listing is a Lorriane Grace SCHIEFFELBINE, on page 77, which does not match the wife information I have for Ryder.

Just trying to determine if this is my Ryder SCHIEFFELBEIN / SCHIEFFELBINE before I ask the Genealogy Club to gather further information.
Thanks for any assistance,
Marla Gray

Jim Hauck Sat Aug 16 17:42:55 2003
Am searching for any information on Henry (Heinrich) SCHMIDT from Napoleon, North Dakota. Know nothing about his family background. Know that he married Mary Eve GLATT about 1915-16. Henry was buying eggs and cream in Emmons County when they first met. They had their first daughter in April, 1917; born at Anamoose, N.D. Henry and Mary Eve had three daughters and one son; Mary Eve died during childbirth of her son about 1922-23. Don't know if they were living in Anamoose or Napoleon when she died.

After her death, the children were placed in an orphanage for awhile, then they moved about five times to foster homes and finally they were "farmed out". The oldest was taken in by her uncle (her mother's brother), Tony GLATT and Agatha Materi GLATT who farmed in Emmons County. Sometime after the death of his wife, Henry moved to Washington state (I believe to Seattle) where he later died destitute. Word has it that he died as a result of his drinking. I need to connect Henry to his parents and other relatives and his wife, Mary Eve, to her parents and relatives. If anyone has any information about these two and their families and wishes to share I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks, Jim

This Russian Mennonite family arrived in Dakota Territory in 1875 and settled in Dakota Territory. I believe they moved to Logan Co. in 1896/1897 and then to LaMoure County before 1910. I would appreciate hearing from anyone who has more information on this family or other Mennonite families in the Logan and LaMoure areas. Thanks! Cindy Courtier [email protected]
