My ggrandfather, (Otto Wilhelm) WILLIAM, b. Jul 25/1844, d. Feb 9/1906, came from Hanover in 1880-1881 with his wife (Agnes Auguste) AUGUSTA Brandt, b. Dec 14/1846, d. Mar 8/1944 and three children, EUGENE, b. c Apr 1873, OSCAR FELIX, b. Nov 24/1874, d. Jan 18/1928 and MARGARET, b. Dec 9/1878, d. May 25/1956
I also have what looks to be a French-German dictionary inscribed "Dictionnaire fur Robert Bergere, Hanover 25 Dec, 1862".I can't find a connection to that.
Also what looks like a German prayer book with a bunch of first and middle names and dates, all in German and hard to read: Ferd. Gustav b. 1876, possibly d. Nov 12/1876 Emil Otto b. Sep 28/1877 Otto Richard Franz b. Jan 6/1882 Charlotte Wilhelmina b. Sep 3/1883, possibly died Dec 19/1884 Antonie Rosa b. Oct 9/1885 That's all I can read.
