Valeska Louise Drishaus was born 9 Nov. 1891 in Omaha, Douglas Co., NE.  She died 30 Dec 1969 in Cincinnati, Hamilton Co., OH. Valeska married Joseph Edward McGlynn in St. Mary Magdalene Church, Omaha.  The marriage was performed by Rev. Father Sinne, 6 Oct 1919.  Witnesses were Daniel McGlynn (father of Joseph) and Ernest A. Drishaus (relation unknown). Joseph Edward McGlynn was a Corporal 62nd Balloon Company, Omaha.  He was born in Johnstone, Renfrew, Scotland and died in Pleasant Ridge, Hamilton Co., OH

I have been trying to find information on the parents and siblings of Valeska Louise Drishaus.  I believe her father may have been the Ernest A. Drishaus who witnessed the marriage although she appears to have had a brother, Ernest as well. I have found the following information regarding Drishaus, but do not know the relationship to Valeska, if any.

Ernest - b. abt 1897 Douglas Co., NE m. 15 Jan 1920

 I am looking for my great uncle, Patrick Donaly.  I have found him in the Adams Co. 1900 census, but not later.  According to my grandfather's obituary in 1924, his widow, Bertha and daughter Iris Jane (born 1902) were living in Fremont then.  Patrick was born in Illinois in March, 1863.  Bertha was evidently married before because the 1900 census lists a stepdaughter, 9 yrs. old, named Cora Bates.  I am pursuing this collateral line because I can't find a birth record on my grandfather, Frank Donaly, and am hoping to trace their father, Cornelius, back to Ireland.  I would appreciate any cemetery or obituary record on any of these ancestors.

 I am trying to find information about my father.  His name was Roger McCampbell.  I believe he is buried in Ridge Cemetery in Fremont, Nebraska.  He and my mother divorced when I was an infant, so I never knew him and did not know tha t he had died until the social security administration contacted us about benefits.  I would appreciate any information anyone may have, especially about the cause of death at such a young age.  Thanks for your help.

I'm looking for 3 or 4 brothers of the TRAULSEN family from Tating and St. Peter, State of Schleswig-Holstein, Germany who immigrated in the 1880s:

1. Claus Henning Traulsen (born May 30, 1860 in St. Peter, Germany). In May 1885 the carpenter Claus Traulsen emigrated to America and first went to Shelby, Iowa where he was married to his cousin Louise Catharina Ipsen about in 1887. Louise Catharina Ipsen (born May 10, 1866 in St. Peter, Germany) came to Shelby, Iowa in 1886. Probably the couple moved to Dodge County, Nebraska before 1890. Claus and Louise Traulsen returned to Tating, Germany in 1911 where they died in 1933 and 1941. I don't know if they had any children that stayed in America.

2. Johann Hermann Traulsen (born March 22, 1858 in Tating, Germany). He emigrated to America about 1880 - 1883. Most probably he was a photographer. About 1890 - 1900 there was a "H. Traulsen" who had a photo studio in Dodge, Nebraska, I think this was Hermann Traulsen. On Hooper Cemetery there is a grave "J. Herman Traulsen, 22 Mar 1858 - 6 Dec 1910". I don't know if he was married and had any children.

3. Peter Wilhelm Traulsen (born September 13, 1863 in Tating, Germany), a painter. He emigrated in May 1887 together with his parents Johann Hermann and Catharina Traulsen. His parents returned to Tating where they died in 1909 and 1917. There was a photographer in Hooper, Dodge County, Nebraska named "P. Traulsen", which must be him. On Hooper Cemetery there is a grave "Peter W. Traulsen, 1862 - 1926" and "Wanda A. Traulsen, his wife, 1872 - 1954".

4. Most probably there was also a brother "B. Traulsen" in Dodge, he is listed in
Nebraska State Gazetteer Dodge County Farmer list for 1890-1891. On Hooper Cemetery there is the grave of his wife "Catharina Traulsen (Nee Martens), 13 June 1862 - 17 Apr 1890". Maybe B. Traulsen ran a business together with his brother Claus Traulsen (the carpenter). In the Nebraska State Gazetteer Dodge County Business list for 1890-1891 there is "Traulsen Bros, furniture, undertakers".

I'm writing an article on emigrants from the town of Tating, Germany (my home town), which will include the TRAULSEN family. I'm still looking for further details on the Traulsen family history after they had emigrated to America.

If you have any further details on the TRAULSEN family in Dodge County, please get in touch with me.

I also found a cousin of Johann Herman Traulsen, Claus Henning Traulsen, Peter Wilhelm Traulsen und Andreetta Catharina Sievers nee Traulsen who emigrated to Dodge County. His name was Uede JACOBS, he was born 1846 in Witzwort, Germany, and he emigrated in 1872. On 26 January 1874 Uede Jacobs was married to Christina E. EHMPKE (age 16 yrs) in Dodge Co. According to the 1890-91  NEBRASKA STATE GAZETTEER - DODGE COUNTY
BUSINESS LIST, Uede Jacobs had a saloon in Hooper at that time. Is there any further information on Uede Jacobs and his wife? When did they die, and did they have any children?
Thank you very much for any help you can give me.

I am looking for information on Peter Karstens and his wife Henriette Krohnke (umlaut over "o")/Kroehnke who
lived in Hooper, Dodge County, Nebraska during the 1880's.  I have a letter written by "Jette" to her sister Bertha
dated 30 May 1886, which gives her mailing address as Hooper.

Peter and Jette were originally from New Holstein, Calumet County, Wisconsin.   Jette was born 15 Oct 1839
in the Duchy of Holstein.  Her parents were Johann Oelerich Krohnke and Margaretha Roegener.  I don't have
any information on Peter Karstens. Does anyone know where I may find some information on them?  It seems that once they left Wisconsin, contact was lost with that part of the family.

Any ideas, leads, suggestions will be most appreciated.

Am looking for details on J. D. H. Bowyer recorded in the Purple Cane Cemetary as 10/21/1845 to 5/25/1899. His wife, Agnes E. Bowyer Johnson, as well as his daughter Josephine M. and son, Forrest M.  are also recorded as resting in this cemetary. My data would indicate he lived  at least until 1910.

John D. H. Bowyer, a miller, lived in Dodge County from 1880 until 1899. Buried in Purple Cane Cemetary. Does anyone know if his son, Forrest, married ? It appears his wife, Agnes E. remarried a Johnson. Does anyone have any info on this ?
What was Forrest BOWYER's connection to the William L. HATCHER family ? What JOHNSON did Agnes BOWYER marry after her husband married. ?

P. S. : apparently lived in the North Bend area Does anyone have any historical info on old flour mills in Dodge County that operated around 1880-1900 in the North Bend Area ? Thanks
