Braasch in Nebraska

I'm looking for descendants of Wilhelmina BRAASCH, b. 4 Jul 1843, d. 5 Feb 1907, and William DUHRING/DUEHRING, b. 17 Sep 1848, d. 1 Jan 1916, her husband. They originated in Prussia, moved to the Ixonia/Lebanon area of Wisconsin and then moved to Norfolk, Nebraska in 1866. They had three daughters, Emma, Martha and Mary. They attended St. Paul's Lutheran Church, Ixonia, when they lived in Wisconsin.
Wilhelmina's father was Herman BRAASCH. He was one of three men who traveled to Nebraska to search out a place to live. When they returned, they packed up everything they owned and traveled to Nebraska with about 42 other families.

My great great grandfather was Wilhelm DUHRING/DUEHRING, b. 24 Oct 1838 in Prussia and moved to Lebanon, Wisconsin. Wilhelm married Wilhelmina BUENNIGN of Lebanon, Wisconsin. If my suspicions are correct, William & Wilhelm are cousins.

I'd appreciate any information. Thank you.

Surnames: Duehring Braasch
I have that Wm Duehring is the son of Martin Duehring & Sophia
Perscke.

I have most of the descendents of Herman Braasch. My gg Ferdinand Braasch is the brother of Herman. I have 4 generations of ancestors of these men.

There are many documented stories about the trip from Ixonia, WI to Norfolk, NE in 1866.

Thanks much for the info on William Duehring. Hopefully I'll be able to make the connection with my family.

Would it be possible for me to obtain the descendents of Herman and Ferdinand Braasch? I have a good friend, Roger Braasch, who would love this information. Roger's father was Edgar Braasch, his grandfather was William Braasch and his great grandfather was Friedrich. Roger's family lived in the Town of Lebanon, Dodge, Wisconsin. They decided to stay in Wisconsin instead of travel to Nebraska.

I would also be interested in stories about the trip from Ixonia, WI to Norfolk, NE. Are these on a website or do you have copies of them.?

I'd appreciate any assistance you could give me. Thank you.

Lori - I too am a descendant of Herman Braasch and Alwina Wille. I was in Norfolk, Nebraska over Memorial Day 2008 and took digital photos of their graves along with several other family members at St. Paul's Lutheran Cemetery. Please let me know if you are interested in receiving digital copies of the photos.

Best, Diane Moore

Wm Duehring 1843-1916 is the son of Martin Duehring and Sophia Perscke.

Shouldn't Wilhelmina BUENNIGN be Buenig/Buennig?

Are you interested in genealogy? There is a lot of info on the Hermann Braasch and Friederika Jaeger family. Hermann is the brother of my Ferdinand Braasch who stayed in Wisconsin on the orginal Braasch homestead. Friederika is the sister of my ggg grandfather Karl Jaeger I. The Jaeger farm was across the street from the Braasch farm in Ixonia, WI.

We are 4th cousins and 4 cousins once removed.

If interested you can reach me at moondreamers6565@netscape.net
