I am the granddaughter of Duane Schellhouse and Janice Johnson They both reside now in Sioux Falls, SD. My grandpa was born in Hills, MN to Olga Salmonson and Harry Schellhouse. Olga and Harry had three children: Donald Schellhouse, Janyce(Schellhouse) Richardson, and Duane Schellhouse (my grandpa) I never met my greatgrandpa. He died when my grandpa Duane was about 18 or so.
I went to Ellis Island about 2 days ago and saw the names on the wall. I couldn't find a Schellhouse.
I don't know if maybe they immigrated here as Schellhas or what. It would be so cool to trace it back to then. Maybe they immigrated here through California? Was there a port there as well? does anyone know? any information on my ancestors would be great! Thanks!
