"... Mr. Salzwedel had resided in his community fifty-two years. He was born near Greifenberg, germany, Nov. 8, 1834. In 1857 he was married to Wilhelmina Gust. A year later the young couple came to America, first settling in Wisconsin at Milwaukee. Here they resided two years ..."
That time period would match the years when a letter addressed to a Hermann Saltswedel in Milwaukee, WI arrived from Neustad, Canada - but it likely missed him by a year or so. It was held at the post office until claimed or returned to the postmarked location.
