I am looking for ancestors/decendants of John Bernard OSTENDORF b. 1844 Oldenburg Provice, Germany. He came to the US in 1867. He met Elizabeth HEIDGERKEN in Jackson County, IA, but travelled to Ramsey County, MN to be married about 1869-1870 I found them in the 1870 Census. They lived in Ramsey County until 1876. They had two children in Ramsey County: Herman b. 1873 and Benjamin b. 1875 when they moved to Jackson County, IA and had my ggrandfather : John Henry OSTENDORF. I must assume, John Bernard had relatives in Ramsey County, which is why he lived there so soon after his immigration to the US.

Don Trudeau
I have been trying to locate my great-grandfather's father and mother along with my great grandmother's father and mother. Their names were Traugett SAUER and Caroline SCHOENIG. They both were from Neukirk, Germany (of which I can't find on the maps) and they had the following children: Ernest, August, and Henry--all born in Germany and then came Paul, William F., Elizabeth Olga, Clara R., and Emma. I believe Traugett came over from Germany with Ernest and August in 1869 or 1870, His wife Caroline and Henry came over about 1872. I thought maybe the 1900 Census might show the names of their parents. Perhaps I'm wrong, but maybe you can steer me in the right direction...... Many thanks, Don R. Trudeau--formerly of St. Paul, Mn--graduated from Central HS in 1945....

My paternal great grandfather, Percy Paul ROBY (DOB abt. 1883 and DOD 2/12/1941) married Francis Aurelia DOHERTY (DOB 6/28/1887 and DOD 4/21/1917) on 10/28/1904 in Ramsey County, but they left St. Paul several years later and settled in Dayton, OH.

Percy and his father, Robert ROBY (DOB 6/4/1849 and DOD 1/13/1917) were both locksmiths by profession in St. Paul and Dayton. Percy supposedly played AA baseball for the St. Paul Saints but I haven't confirmed after calling the Saints or the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Francis or Frankie as she was known by was shunned by her family for marrying a Protestant and I therefore don't know much about my Minnesota relatives.

I found a letter from Percy's first cousin, Charles ROBY stating the following line of ancestors of Percy and you'll notice that ROBEY became ROBY sometime in the mid-1800's. I'm looking for any information, pictures, living relatives of any of the below:

My great grandmother (mormor's mor), Maria DANIELSSON Ledholm, born "Sweden" ca. 1845, emigrated to USA after Jan 1868 with a daughter, Dorothea LEDHOLM. She appeared in Minneapolis at the time of her marriage to Nels SWANSON (born 31 March 1839, Södra Rörum, Frosta Härad, Malmöhus, who emigrated to St. Paul, MN in May 1869) Their marriage took place in the First Swedish Evangelical Lutheran Church in Minneapolis 12? Nov 1872. They lived in St. Paul until Maria's death on 10 February 1880 connected with the birth of her fifth child with Nels SWANSON, (a daughter given for adoption "to a wealthy couple from Chicago"). The children were dispersed to neighbors of Nels' brother, Pehr/Peter SWANSON who farmed NE of Grove City, Meeker Co., MN. Step-daughter Dorothea was raised (from her then age 12) by another brother of Nels who lived with his wife in Glenwood, Pope Co., MN. Dorothea married an older man when she was 17 and never had children. Nothing traceable with her.

I've searched for ten years to identify Maria DANIELSSON Ledholm, supposedly married in Sweden to a Samuel LEDHOLM who died before her emigration to MN. No birthdate and no parish in Sweden make this difficult.

I would like to identify her arrival in St. Paul/Minneapolis area 1868 - 1972 era. Did she travel with family or friends? Where did she live? Was she connected with a church? I've found no such connections in MN.

17 March 1998; Charles W. Jones
Looking for relatives of Charles DEWEY (1880-1978), resident of St. Paul, Ramsey Co., Minn. I believe him to be the Charles Dewey listed in the US census of 1900 as the son of Eli DEWEY and Mary Ann HUNTER DEWEY of Buse, Otter Tail Co., Minn., who moved to Minn. from St. Lawrence Co., N.Y., in the late 1860's. If I am right, then his maternal grandparents were John and Elisabeth HUNTER, and his great grandparents were William and Mary HUNTER, all of whom immigrated from England sometime before 1840. Another Charles DEWEY (1929-1996), also a resident of St. Paul, may have been his son or grandson. Elisabeth Hunter was widowed in 1852 and remarried George W. Jones, my great great grandfather.
