Surnames: Drews (Draves), Harvert (Harvard)
I am trying to research my Great Grandmother. Her Name was Augusta Emma Drews (Draves). I have the Marriage Cert. from 1887 when she married my Grandfather, Charles Stark. On the Marriage Cert it list her father's name as Julius Drews, and her mother's name as Henrietta Harvert (Harvard). Augusta was born in Prussia in 1867. I can't find ANY immigration records or German records that pertain to her and her family. I know she lived in Tomah WI. when she was married to my Great Grandfather. I found that out in a newspaper clipping. I have been researching her for 8 years now and I am stuck....... I have been on the Monroe County Historical Society Site many times. I also have a subscription to Newspaper Archives. I have found nothing. Even on FamilySearch. She passed away in 1910 and I have not found an obituary that lists relatives or family. Do you think I should order a Death Cert? I am not sure if the names of her parents are even correct. I just can't imagine a young woman would travel across the ocean by herself. Does anyone have suggestions?
