Herman Ellwanger would be a second cousin two times removed (maybe??). Herman is the grandson of Joachim (1817-1904)and Mary (1827-1915)Neubauer. Joachim and Mary Neubauer are my great-great grandparents. Their three children were Fredricka Sophia Neubauer Ellwanger (m. Andrew), Christina Elizabetha Neubauer, and Frederick C. Neubauer (my great grandfather. Joachim came from Neuenkirchen in Mecklenburg-Strelitz. However someone in a genealogy society in Mecklenburg checked marriage and could not find anything on my Neubauers. If you can be of any help, please contact me. I live in Minnesota.
