Hi, I believe this to be the answer to your questions from previous post.My great grandfather was probably the one referred to as Henry from first marriage.

I believe we are researching the same families. My great-great grandfather was Dietrich Harms b. 1804 Gross Heidorn, Bueckeburg, Hannover, d. 1877 Saline Co., MO. I do not know the name of Dietrich's first wife, but they had at least 2 sons: H. Dietrich "Dick" b. abt 1840 Prussia, and Henry.
Dietrich m. 2nd Anna Maria "Mary" Koopmann b. abt. 1820. They had five children: Friedrich August "Fritz" b. 1854 MO; Heinrich Friedrich "Louis" b. 1857 MO; Sophia Dorathea Augusta b. 1858 near Sweet Springs, MO; Emma b. 1861 MO; Dietrich "August" b. 1863 MO.
I have more on their descendants and would be glad to trade info.
