I am still stuck on the ancestry of Julia Scheel, my great-grandmother.Here is what I know about her: 1900 census: She and husband George Frederick Fricken were living in Nebraska (Dakota Co, Emerson Precint).Her birthdate was listed as January, 1855.They had been married 26 years. 1920 census: year of emigration listed as 1871 and naturalization in 1875 (I think).Living in Sioux City, Iowa. A widow by this time. 1930 census: birth place listed as Holstein, Germany.Her parents birth places also listed as Holstein.Year of emigration listed as 1832 (but that can't be right if she was born in 1855).Living in Sioux City, Iowa
I think that her mother's name was Henrietta.
Does anyone have a Julia Scheel in their records? Thanks for your help. Marilyn LaPlante
