I am desperately looking for my husband's family.Family history has the first US immigrant, Karl Ernest Kuester b. 1832, coming from Hannover about 1860.I believe that he entered in New Orleans, married a Dorthea Rodawald, and had a daughter, Mary Kuester (m.Wagner), in 1861.Mary might have returned to Germany and immigrated back with a brother(?), William H. Kuester (b.1855), in 1875.Karl (Charles) served as a soldier in the Civil War and settled in Northern KY, Crittenden.He died in 1923.My husband is a direct descendant of his son, Edward (m. Mana Durr) and his son, Lloyd Kuester. I have been unable to figure out the exact relationship between Karl and William H. Kuester (father/son?, brothers?) and the exact date, location, and ship the family immigrated on, or if my supposition that Baby Mary traveled during the turmoil of the Civil War is correct.
