I am descended from Eva Mathilde Marschinke (born 1854), who emigrated to the St Paul,MN area with her brother Charles.I'm told that they were originally from Posen, which was Prussia at the time but is now in Poland again.
I'm looking for any info about the Marschinke family in Posen.(Jo Coombs of Apple Valley,MN has more info about Charles's family in America...)
Eva married Ferdinand Erdman(n), a Prussian / German man born about 1843 in Germany who emigrated to the St Paul area between 1865-1867.I'm told that they married in/near Warsaw,MN or Faribault,MN in 1869, then moved to St. Paul.They had at least 9 children, all of whom were born in Minnesota.
I have gathered info about their children from US Census and their obituaries, so I’m sure that the daughters are probably listed twice here: Adolph (Otto?) born 1874 Minnie ? born Feb 1881 Agnes born 1883? married Charles Hewlett Bertha born Mar 1884 married Mr. Elmer Johnson Albert born Apr 1885 Mrs. Fred Granstrom Willie born Mar 1891 R. G. (Robert?) Mrs. Jean Smith Lillian born 1892?
I am descended from their daughter Agnes and her daughter Eva Irene.My father is Eva Irene’s son.
