Jacob Juelfs and his wife Marie Elise Dirks
came to the US in 1857 from Hohenkirchen,
Oldenburg, Germany. Their children were Marie Elise,
Rudolph, Jake, Hilbrick, Albert, Anson, Julius,
Christian, Mary Dorothea, Eva, and Herman. Maire
Elise and Rudolph were the children of Jacob and his
first wife, Anna Onnen. Jacob settled in Dixon,
Lee Co IL. His descendents spread around the US and Canada.
They settled in IA, KS, MO, SD, MT, IL, MI,
MN, NE, British Columbia, and elsewhere. I believe that some
of the JUELFS submissions to the Family Tree on Ancestry.com
are descendents of him.
