Hi,

I found your tree here, and I see that maybe you overlooked the 1915 South Dakota State Census - it lists her maiden name, ["Rep"], and the year they were married - 1886:

You see on the passenger list for their arrival that they claim they were destined to see "Uncle Christoph Kahn/Hahn/Kuhn" (?) in what appears to say Kulm, ND. I looked it up - yes, there is a very small town called Kulm in ND.

[They claim they were all born in Leipzig, Russia but were German (race). And Elizabeth was blind in left eye.]

So, there's a possible hint - an Uncle with the surname Hahn/Kahn/Kuhn. Now, whose uncle, his or hers? Well, I see you have Sam's mother listed as a Kuhn.

And here might be that Christof Kuehn they were coming to see in Kulm in 1910:

BTW - here's where Sophia Wruck died; now you her have her full birthdate (if it's correct) and where born - Kiev (if that's correct):

Hope this helps some,

Kat
