I am looking for information on a Wiliminia "Minnie" Rittmeyer. I just recently found her death certificate and the information was given by her son so hope it is accurate. Her Father's name was Henry Rittmeyer born in Germany, and they came to this country in 1856 she was 2 as she was born in 1854,but the month and day are blank. She died December 05, 1911 in Fornfelt, Scott County, Missouri according to the death certificate.
According to a census she came to the United States in 1856 at 2,but the Mother's name is unknown by by grandfather when she died.
I would like to find anything on her or her father and the mother who is unknown so far. I wonder if they came in through Ellis Island or somewhere else will be looking for that too and any cousins I meet along the way would be great :) . If you canhelp please do, and I will help anyone out anyway I can also. Thanks
