My Grandmother Annette ROEHM was born in Wishek, North Dakota to Lydia (HERR) ROEHM. Lydia HERR was the daughter of Jacob and Christina HERR who once owned the HERR Merchantile Store in Wishek. I am just curious if anyone has information on my Great-Grandparents Lydia and George ROEHM, or better yet, Jacob and Christina HERR. And if anyone has pictures, it would be even better. You can just e-mail me with info for I probably will have a hard time checking on here.
I do have a photos page at Webshots- if you put in the name ROEHM or HERR in the search, you'll find pictures of my direct descendants.

Elizabeth Delzer Tue Feb 26 03:08:29 2002
Christ G. DELZER is my great great grandfather. He was born on February 27th, 1865 in Johannestal, South Russia and then he located near Menno, Dakota Territory. Later, after getting married to Miss Friendericka LANGE they traveled to Eureka, then to Ashley and finally after an Indian scare which ended up being false went back to thier little home in McIntosh County. Mr. and Mrs. DELZER were the parents of twelve children. I have all thier dates and thier spouses dates.
My query is that I would like to learn more about my great great grandfather side of the family, his siblings and his parents. The information that I have aquired from my family source is quite a bit, but I am trying to go with the DELZER surname. Anyone with any information would be appreciated.
Sincerely, Elizabeth Delzer from Campbell, California

Thomas Manson BUCK, 1887-1952, lived in McIntosh or Sioux county around 1918-1924 on a spread called Dirt Butte Ranch. Also, references to Swastika Ranch, probably owned by the Angell's. His wife was Franklyn C. (BAXTER) BUCK, who purchased 160 acres from BLM in 1920. Can anyone tell us where these places might be and if there are any remaining relatives today. Thanks.

Peter MITZELL settled in the Zeeland area of McIntosh County about the same time as my Wendelin MATERI, who homesteaded there in 1885. His wives were named Magdalene MIZLE (possibly MITZELL), and Magdalena GESI ( possibly GEISE).
I noticed that Peter's wife was named Barbara GESI, d/o John GESI and Katherine WAGNER.
Could Wendelin's first wife have been Magdalene GESI?
Could she have been related to Peter MITZELL' wife, Barbara GESI??
Anyone who is related to these MITZELLs might know the answer to this important question.
I have an obituary for Magdalene MATERI and it states that she is survived by two brothers, one was a John GESI, of Zeeland.

Wendelin MATERI and wife Magdalene (MAGDA) MATERI came in 1885 with son Martin. Wendelin bought a 500 acre farm in the McIntosh County in 1895. Looking for Wendelin's descendents. It has been reported that he had 13 children with his first wife, Magdalen MISLE and five children with his second wife Magdalene GEISS.
Some of the names which I have connected to him are;
Martin born 1885, in Josephstal, Russia.
Joseph, born 1887, who married Florentine JOB. He moved to Medicine Hat, Sask., Canada and is buried in the Hilldside Cemetery in Medicine Hat.
Peter born 1898, who moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin,
and Sebastian born 1890. who lived in Emmons county.
Who are the other 10 children???????
Any info most welcome.
Check my URL address for the whole MATERI family dating back to Alsace, (France) in 1700.
The Peter (Joannes Petrus) MATERI family went from Neiweiler, Alsace in 1808 to Franzfeld, Russia ( now Ukraine). Wendelin was my great grandfather, Joseph's brother. He settled in
St. Joseph's Colony, Balgonie, Sask, Canada, in 1886.
I look forward to any info.

I am interested in any information about the BAUMSTARCKs, descendants of Anton and Margaret BAUMSTARCK of Neeweiler, Germany, and Kutschurgan area of Odessa, Russia. I have the family traced back to the mid 1700s but have none of the later members of the family. My great-grandmother was Magdalena BAUMSTARCK married to George ABERLE of Strassburg, Russia. Anton BAUMSTARCK came to America on the same ship as my great Aunt, Magdalena ABERLE Schumacher in October 1885. I am especially interested in finding any relatives of Regina (THOMAS) ABERLE, wife of Michael ABERLE who came to the McIntosh County area of N.D. in October 1885. Her father is believed to be George THOMAS of either Selz, or Strassburg, Russia.
I am willing to share any information I already have about the families mentioned.

nikki hermann Tue Mar 13 13:21:07 2001
I am researching my husband's side of the family. His grandfather (Emil Gottlieb HERMANN) and grandmother (Florence Estella GRUEBELE) were both born in Ashley ND. Emil was born in 1902 (i think) and Florence around 1921. The only piece of information i know for sure is that they had a son, Fredric Edward HERMANN, in 1939 in Eureka SD (that's my father-in-law). His birth cert says that Emil was 35 and Florence was 18. but my father-in-law told me Emil was born in 1902. The numbers don't quite match though. Florence died young but that's about all i know of her. If you come across her death cert i would be interested in details about that too. my father-in-law was young and doesn't know much about it either. Any information you could give me on both of them would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
