John Julius and William Julius are common names in my lineage which I can trace back to 1780 in Province Posen, Germany. I am wondering if there are others out there with some common relatives.
My great-grandfather was John B who was born in Guttenburg, Iowa, on Jan. 6, 1862 and died September 10, 1944, in Storm Lake, Iowa.His wife was named Bertha and they were married for over 60 years, being married December 17, 1882. She was born September 1, 1864 in Prussia, Germanyand died November, 1946 in Storm Lake. Their children were William J. Julius of Storm Lake,Etta Grant of Rolfe,Mayme Ellinger of Manson, Alydia Eell of Palmer, and Leo Julius.
My great-great-grandfather was John Julius, who was born in Provence Posen, Germany. He was married to Wilhemina Seeman. They moved to America in 1854, settling near Guttenburg, then moving to Lizard Township. They had 14 children. His brother William moved to the Palmer area to raise his family.
His father was also John Julius and was born in Provence Posen, Germany in 1780.
I can't find more specific birth/death records than that. If anyone has more information, please contact me. Thanks. Also, if you are descended from that familybut from brothers and sisters, tell me about them! Thanks.
His father was John Julius who was born September 20, 1821 in Province Posen, Germany.
