I have been looking for my ancestor Henry Bollman, born 1851 in Charleston SC. I found his father Ben Bollman in the 1880 census. Ben Bollman was born c.1824 (in Bremen, Germany) and lived in Charleston, SC. He was married to Louisa, born c.1833 (in Prussia). His children were Henry (1851), Annie (1860), Theodore (1866) and again Henry (1870).
My ancestor Henry was a sailor settling in Norway in 1873, but re-immigrated to the US in 1903. Do not know if he settled permanently, or where.
Do anyone know more about the relatives and ancestors of Ben or his wife Louisa?
Do anyone recognise Henry Bollman, born 1851, entering New York in April, 1903 - or his wife Thora Juliette, born c.1849, entering New York in May, 1905 ?
