I am looking for info on a Margaretha Nickel/Nikkel born 1868 and married Abram Janzen in 1889 Cottonwood Cnty., MN. I found a Margaretha Nikkel born to Margaretha Siemens and Peter Nikkel on the Grandma3 CD is this the same Margaretha? It stated that Peter & Margaretha had 4 children; Margaretha b: 10/15/1868, Katharina b: 3/16/1867, Sara b: 8/18/1871& Maria b: about 1873 (died young).
Hello! My grandfather (not gr. grand) Johann Plett's, second marriage to Katherine Nikkel, was in 1881 in Cottonwood, MN. They were Mennonites from Molotschna, Ukraine & moved on to Oregon & Washington, where they had 7 more children, my father being the youngest.
Could be that we are related. I'm very interested in learning about Katherine's ancestry.
Do you know who Katherines parents are?
