I would appreciate hearing from anyone researching the same family:
Some background information:
Julius Kreklau (b. March 22, 1851 @ Posen, Poland/Germany) married Annie Jentz or Yadereskie (not sure right now) (b. October 1, 1851 Poland/Germany) in 1878 in Poland/Germany.
They immigrated to the USA in 1881.
Their children were Frederick, Richard, Louis, Adolph, Joseph, Grace, Selma, Augusta, Charlie and Anna.
1885 Census has them in Mooresville, MN; 1895 to 1905 Censuses in Daggett Brook, MN; in 1910 moved to SK, Canada; and then 712-5th Avenue, Brainerd, MN by 1930 Census. Julius died on April 9, 1944, Annie on March 20, 1941. They are both buried in Evergreen Cemetery.
My family lineage is as follows: Me>Gordon Gladwell>Rose Kreklau>Richard Kreklau>Julius Kreklau>???.
Interestingly, there are two other Julius Kreklau's with close birth and immigration dates, but definitely not my (direct) family:
Julius Kreklau (b. 1848 @ Posen, Poland/Germany, d. 1943 in MT) married Louise Marie Marquardt in 1883 in WI.
He immigrated to the USA in 1880.
Their children were Emma, Otto, Antone, Robert, Julie, Allie and Viola.
Julius Kreklau (b. 1855 @ Poland/Germany, d. 1920 in MI) married Wilhelmina Nemtz/Nintz/Hientz in 1881.
He immigrated to the USA in 1879.
Their children were Lilly, Irene, Earl, Herbert, Augusta and Lena.
