Is anyone rersearching the FROMKE family in North Dakota? My branch is from northeastern South Dakota, but some relatives were in Richland County. I am looking for the brother-in-law of my great grandfather Albert FROMKE. He marrie Augusta LENTZ. Augusta's brother, obviously named LENTZ as well, married one of Albert's sisters, maiden name FROMKE. I am trying to track them down.
I am trying to search family history records from the United Cemetery in Hankinson ND.
We visited in 2009 and found a family headstone in the Emmanuel United Church of Christ in Hankinson.
The headstone is marked Anna M Behnke July 15 1906 to Sept 10 1906. I would like to confirm that it
is one of my grand fathers children . The parents would be Paul and Elise Behnke who lived in Hankinson
in that time period before moving to Beiseker, Alberta , Canada shortly after this time.
Do you have any records or who I can contact for the information I seek.
I am seeking information about my ancestors John H. Ahrens (1862-1944) and his wife Johanna (1866-1944). They were born in Germany and came to Lidgerwood, North Dakota in 1894 from Goodhue Minnesota. They had quite a few children including daughters Clara, Mable and Dorothy. Their sons are Jack and Arthur.
Their oldest daughter, Clara was born in Minnesota on Jan. 1889. She married Wilber Ezra Smith (1890 Wright Co., MN) about 1912. He was of German and English descent. They move to Kulm, LaMoure Co., ND at age 11 with his parents. I do not know their names. They lived in Bossko, Roberts Co., SD on 1920 Census and they moved to a farm north of Williston in Williams Co., ND
Thank you for your help!
