Thanks for letting me know about Rudolph Rogert. It seems that we are somehow related. Rudolph's father August was my great grandfathers brother. I have very little information on Rudolph other then he married Polly and had one son Don. Can you shed some more light on this? Would love to know more about Rudolph and Polly.
I just recently received the ship manifest from the ship that the Rogerts came over on from Germany. August, Rudloph's father is the only one not listed which brings me to the assumption that he came over before the rest of the family to estatblish a place of residence here in the US in Nebraska. John, August brother, my great grandfather, was older then August and married with three small children and one on the way - my grandfather - so it would seem logical to send the unmarried son here first. Anyway, would love to hear from you regarding Rudolph and Polly and am more then happy to share what I have on the Rogerts.
