My grandfather Gerhard Johan Hendrik Fischer was a Dutch immigrant, came to the USA about 1883. He was born10/11/1861 in Groenlo, Gelderland, Netherlands. d. 4/10/1944 Pella, Adams, Neb. USA.
His family was as follows:
Father: Johan Hendrick Fischer d.abt 1880 HOL
Mother: Hendricke Ten Caate b.11/9/1829,D. 2/11/1914, Holland Neb. USA
Bro: Herman Bernard Fischer b.d. Holland
Bro: Carl Fischer b.d. Holland

Bro: John Fischer b. 12/1863 Groenlo, d. 1951, Hickman,Neb. USA
Sister: Reka Fischer b. 3/24/1866 Groenlo, d.5/24/1928 Lincoln, NE. USA
Sister: Dena Fischer b. 1877, Groenlo, Holland, d. 1946 Bennet, Neb. USA
Sister: Johanna Fischer, b. Groenlo, d. Holland Neb. USA
I am looking for information in relatives that remaind in the Netherlands and am interested in were the family originated. The name is probably German, we have speculation the family came from souther Germany and were Jewish.
I have a 90% complete family tree of the USA Fischer's from this group and am willing to share.
