Great Grandpa Fromke invites cousins in Wisconsin to rent the farm next door


This is a snapshot of a genealogical notebook made by my cousin Jannik and his grandmother in Buxtehude, Germany. These notes were made by another relative, Delores Bryan, thankfully. I have to study the family tree to identify their precise relationship.

“They wanted their own place so when he received a letter from a friend by the name of Fromke telling Fred there was farm for rent next to his, Fred and Emilie took the train to South Dakota.”

I wonder what has happened to this letter. Delores died in 2014 and I don’t know if she had any children.
