I am wondering if someone can help me or direct me in the right direction. I am searching for records on my Great Grandmother Emma Hermann/Hermanns. I am having a hard time finding records on her and her family from Germany. Any ideas or help would be appreciated. I have heard that she traveled to the United States with a small child when she was about 15. I have asked family and they are not sure if she traveled with anyone other than a small child. I know when she met my great grandfather "Frederick Barnhardt" he made her give this child up for adoption. Not sure if I would ever find any info on the child that she gave up for adoption.
DOB was abt 1893 in Germany
The year of Immigration was 1908
She lived in Pocahontas, Iowa for awhile and also Big Stone City, South Dakota. She is buried in Pocahontas, Iowa.
She married my great grandfather Frederick Barnhardt
Frederick was born 1879 and died in 1959
