Surnames: Wiggers Ahlmann Frellsen
My gg grandfather was Henrich Carl (Henry Charles) Wiggers and he married Anna Maria Ahlmann (twin to Anna Ahlmann) April 26 1839 in Columbia Caldwell Parish. The twins were from Denmark. Anna Maria worked for Henry Frellsen and they came on a ship together in 1836.
Wiggers (believed to be from Denmark) bought land from US Government in 1839 in Caldwell Parish close to Copenhagen. Wiggers ultimately moved to Franklin Parish around 1842.

Any information on where historical records are kept for Caldwell Parish would be appreciated.

Historical records for Caldwell Parish, LA would be in the Clerk of Court's office located in the parish courthouse in Columbia, LA. Marriage records, land transactions etc. should be there. Any U.S. Government land either homesteaded or purchased can be found in the U.S. Bureau of Land Management and can be accessed via their website (free) and from there you can print out officical land transaction documents or send for official copies for a fee. You can search the website by state and parish for Louisiana and counties for other states.
