Long story short, Friedrich fought in the Franco-Prussian war, and after the men on both sides of him were killed, decided he didn't want his sons to endure that, so he immigrated to America, bringing his first wife and children and his (I assume widower) father. I have heard from family that Friedrich chose to immigrate to Calumet County, Wisconsin because he had other family here (possibly your Helene).

So here are my thoughts on the information you and I have... if the dates that you have for immigration and age at time of immigration are correct, and if Anna and Helene are in fact the same person, that puts Helenes birth date around 1825; Given the fact that they are from the same area, and immigrated to the area, I might guess that Helene and Friedrich could be siblings, or possibly cousins (Hopefully siblings, then we'll both be researching the same parents!). I have heard from family that Friedrich chose to immigrate to Calumet County, Wisconsin because he had other family here (possibly your Helene), and given that he took his father with him, I imagine no one was left in the old country.
