I am trying to track down more info on my great-grandparents who seem to have a similar trajectory to yours; wonder if anyone can help.
My great-grandfather is Ernst Johann Raatz, born in Grabionne, Wirsitz, Posen, Prussia in 1831. He immigrated to US in about 1863, settling first in Ripon, WI (Fond du Lac County) and marrying Augusta Louise Krienke, who was born in the same town in 1840 and immigrated to Ripon area about the same time as Ernst. In about 1869 they moved to Augusta area, near Fairchild, and farmed there until their deaths in 1907 (Ernst) and 1921 (Augusta). I have not been able to find church records in the Augusta area about their deaths, though obituaries for both say they were buried from 'the Evangelical Lutheran Church' in Fairchild. Any help would be appreciated.
