Verify emmigration year of Jean & Henrietta Senechal
Need to verify the year of emmigration. I have 1880 census of my great Grandmother Louise Menard that say 1869. I believe that she is the daughter of Jean & Henrietta.
1910 Minnesota, Todd County, Long Prairie Township, ED#181, Page 152A, 4/19/1910:Ferdinand L. Menard, 73yo, M2/--, Germany, Imm.1868/Na, Proprietor/HotelLouise A., wife, 56yo, M1/40yrs, 10 children/4 living, Germany, Imm.1869, Landlady/HotelSeveral servants and boarders listed
Info from a Senechal family web site states the following:
Jean and Henrietta lived in Prussia at the time of King Wilhelm I and Otto Von Bismarck. The country was gearing up for war. Their eldest son Johann served in compulsory military training for three years. At the close of the Civil War in America, the couple gathered their family and moved, in 1866, to Minnesota, USA. They settled in Atwater, MN.
Thanks for any help,
