Looking for relatives, and/or information, concerning a German Lutheran family that lived on a large farm near the village of Karolinow, a few miles from Chelm. Most of the brothers emigrated 1880's to early 1900's to U.S. Several settled in North Dakota, via Wisconsin, and one in Washington state. Spoke High and Low German, probably attended high school, or equivalent, in Chelm. Believed to have one married sister. One brother, Gustav (August), died in a coal mine accident, in 1904, shortly after arriving in the U.S.
