Another ancestor that I lost track of when he immigrated to America. August Karl Friedrich Rohde b: Mar 21,1862, Teterow/Mecklburg, Germany. Married Ida Caroline Kieseler. Ida was born nov 17,1865,in Billwaider on the Bille, Germany She died October 2, 1892. (she was 27)in Hamburg of Cholera. Her husband, August was a sailor. He was out to sea when his wife,Ida, died. He never came back to Germany, leaving their daughter (my grandmother, Adele Marie Dorothea Rohde) an orphan. When my grandmother was older, she found out that her father had lived in Rondont, New York, Nov. 29, 1886. She never did find him. I think he had a wife in the US as well as Ida in Germany. My grandmother, Adele, was born May 26, 1884. Back to August....His father was Christian Christoph Rohde born Jun 23, 1818, Germany His mother Christiane Rode born 1832 (don't know where I got his mother and father's names) August had 2 brothers: Heinrich Wilhelm Siegfried b oct 21, 1857 who emigrated to US. and Martin Johann b: 2/10/1860. I would like to find out if "August" had a wife and children in the US and I'd like to know Ida's parents names, etc. this has all been so impossible for me to find. Hope you can!!
