I have an ancestor Elizabeth Bongard. She was born 1841 in Germany. She immigrated in 1886 to Norwood, MN. She married Henry Kroppen. Does anybody know who her ancestors are?

Angela,

It seems very unlikely your Bongard would come to Norwood, Mn. and NOT be related to MY Bongard in Carver Co.! ,Mn.,! Carver Co. has a town named Bongard. Have you found out anymore? Their town was Asterlagen and / or Schwalfheim , Kreis Moers, Rhineland, Germany. I haven't gotten more than that. Email : LADYTREKY@aol.com

I don't think I can help with ancestors going back into Germany. But, I came from the Carver/McLeod area of Minnesota and I have a Herman Kroppen on a tree I'm working on. He only had 2 children A boy also Herman and a daughter that married a Mueller and lived at Hamburg, then married a Molash and later a Stock. I believe Herman was the only Kroppen that came at the time he did, but I know there were several in the Plato area already. I'm beginning to think the ones the immigrated were all decendants of the Henry Bitters you mentioned. Please get back to me and we can work this out. You can email me direct at pannkass@yahoo.com or reply here.

Surnames: Kroppen Ehrke Hoof
What I would like to know is the name of the children of this Henry Kroppen. Did he ever immigrate to America or is he just the father of some of the Kroppens that did immigrate to the Plato and other areas. I know there was one Kroppen that married an Ehrke n the Lester Prairie area. My tree has Herman Kroppen on it and he immgrated to Plato MN in 1894 and I believe a Peter Hoof came at the same time he did (according to immigration papers) Then I found a Katherine Kroppen that married a Peter Hoof and lived at Bergen Twnship McLeod Co. Please get back to me. You can email me at pannkass@yahoo.com or reply here.
