About Our Family Research

The Wadekamper Family in Minnesota have had an anual 4th of July ,Family reunion in Rice County,Minnesota,for over 100 years,but we,re the only ones and its gotten a lot smaller.Our Herman Wadekamper came over from Germany in 1855,and settled in Shieldsville,Rice,Minnesota.As far as I have been able to find out,we have no other relatives this side of the Atlantic.Herman and his wife Mary Oels and 3 children arrived 19 Feruary 1855,aboard the Bark Wilhemine,from Dissen,near Osnabruck.Herman and Mary were married 14 July 1850 in Worburg.Family tradition says Herman was a Military Officer.Hopefully someday I will have the time and finances to research further,but if any body can tell me anything furthur,that would be great.
