Schnelten & Scheffel
I am trying to trace when Frank Julius Scheffel (1849-1909) came from Germany to the US.He came from Hannover, and his parents were Godfried (or Gottfried) John Scheffel and Christina Brummer.
Also, I am trying to trace Schneltens.I have that Bernhard H. Schnelten (16 Aug 1836-??) came fron Lachden, Kreis Hemmling (?), Hannover and settled in St. Louis by 1854.I am unsure who his first wife was, who died in 1870.He then returned to Germany after she died and married Maria Reumker.He became a US citizen on 2 Nov. 1892.I need the information about dates when he came from Germany each time.
If anyone has any information on either of these, I would really appreciate it!!If you have any information about Godfried John Scheffel or Christina Brummer, or the parents of Bernhard H. Schnelten, that would be really interesting to find out as well.Thank you in advance!
