Hi Alice. I checked my records further and found that Herman Fred Weidauer emigrated to Iowa in 1898 via New York. He married in 1905 in Iowa I believe. He was accompanied from Germany with a brother by the name of Ernst who was b. 15May1882 and d. Sep1965 in Fonda. He had a son by the name of Oscar. he had another brother or a cousin by the name of Alvin who married and Ida Coon. Herman also had a sister, Freida Kaufman, who decided to stay in Germany. Does this sound familiar? You can email directly if you want to. Look forward to hearing from you.
