I am looking for information on my Great Grandmothers family of which I know very little. Here is the little I know about her:
Her name was Augusta Regene Hempel born March 26 1875 in Germany. She died June 19 1939.
According to her obit, at the age of 12 she came with her parents from Germany to locate at Wood Lake MN. In 1896 she married my G Grandfather Carl Wellnitz in Albee SD. They lived near Albee SD Grant County for the rest of their lives. Their daughter Alice Wellnitz-Ladwig is my grandmother.
At the time of Augusta's death in 1939 she had 3 sisters and 2 brothers living and 2 sisters and 1 brother had proceded her in death.
I would be interested if anyone would have info about her siblings and parents.
Through my internet reseach I noticed a concentration of Hempels in New Ulm I do not know if there is a connection to Augusta. The name Emil Hempel has census records that match the timeframe Augusta was to have immigrated and is in the same age range (3 yrs younger) as her.
Thanks for your time.
