Re: Where or what is Kronjurinam (maybe wrong spelling)
Thank you! This is wonderful.
There is a family story. Anna Pohlman was meeting her husband in America. Coming off the boat, the oldest daughter who was only 5 years old, slipped and nearly fell into the water. Her mother with two babies already in her arms couldn't save her but a man behind her grabbed the little girls hair and brought her back up onto the gangplank. Quick thinking on his part.
Anna Pohlman's husband drowned while hunting soon after they arrived at their home in Nebraska. She married my great grandfather after his wife Anna (Engel) died three years later.
It looks like several connected families all moved to America on the same boat and all went to live in Nebraska.
