My name is colleen lightfoot, my grandmother was Anna (Wersal) Mahoney. She was born in Sleep Eye, MN on Feb. 21, 1893 to George and Mary Wersal. Mary was a (Saffert). Seifert is how my grandma always spelled it. As I check records I see that in the begining when Mary(Maria Saffert) first arrived in the USA in 1888 it was spelled Saffert. I wonder if it was just a miscommunication. I also have the names Stephen Sellner, who maried my great grandmothers sister Anna Saffert. Sister Barbara Saffert married Anton Fleck, Elizabeth to Johann Rothmeir,Theresa to George Peter Piehl and George to Magdalena Ziegler. Would love to hear from you.
