I just found out that my Nehls originally were from some island off the coast of Norway or some Scandanavian island Aland? Aeland?
The earliest ancestor I have is Herman Nehls died about 1938 and supposedly buried in Marcellon Cemetery near Pardeeville Wisconsin. He was first married to Rekka Chimmel? and she died after the 2nd set of twins dying at birth. Apparently he married for a second time but no information.
The children are: Will Nehls lived in Seattle, Washington; Gustave born 1878 died 1953 lived in Wyocena Twp, Columbia, Wisconsin; Herman Nehls never married; Otto Nehls born 27 Oct 1883 lived in Morrisonville, Dane, Wisconsin; my great grandmother Wilhelmina Nehls born 10 Dec 1887 lived in Pacific Twp, Columbia, Wisconsin; Anna married to Fred Beier.
