I have just started researching the Sontag's (or Sonntag's).
My Great Great Grandmother is Maria (Mary) Helene Sonntag born 1821 in Lommersum, Germany. She married Gottfried Peil born 7/1809 in Lommersum too. I have no evidence that they ever came to America.
I have information that Maria's parents were John Sontag and Anna ?. She may also had 4 younger brothers: Heinrich J. b: 7/30/1826 in Gross-Bellsen, Rhine, Germany. He died 7/29/1904 in Mankato, Blue Earth Co, MN; Englebert J. b: 8/28/1829 in Gross-Bellsen, Rhine, Germany. d: 12/27/1895 in Mankato, Blue Earth Co, MN; Matthias J. b: 5/22/1832 in Gross-Bellsen, Rhine, Germany, d: 6/24/1913 Eagle Butte, SD Jacob J. b: 1837 in Gross-Bellsen, Rhine, Germany. , d: 1/24/1898 in Mankato, Blue Earth Co, MN.
I have a lot of information on Maria and Gottfried's descendants.
I am requesting information on her ancestors, especially confirming her parents and brothers are as listed above.
I grew up in Wisconsin but now live in Indiana. One of Gotfried & Maria Peil's sons, Joseph,immigrated to Hewitt, Wisconsin in about 1900 - 1902.
