Thank you for your reply. Your Conrad Waldschmidt seems to be a different person. Mine was born about 1852 and immigrated in 1866 from a residence in Wohra (Gemunden), Germany through New York to Eden Township, LaSalle County, Illinois. Then his parents and two brothers moved to DeKalb County, Illinois and the brothers eventually moved to Minnesota. I was not aware of a third brother until recently when I found an obituary for the father and immigration records for the family.
