Frederick Bastian, lived in Redfield, South Dakota, fr. 1856-1922
I am searching for any information on my great grandfather, Frederick Bastian, born in Mecklinberg, Germany, 1838, immigrated to USA in 1856, farmed in Redfield, South Dakota and died there in approximately 1922. Frederick had three brothers: Henry, August, and one name unknown.August fathered Edith and Ferdinand, who fathered Ralph, Howard, and Kenny.
Frederick was married to Louisa Hubb (her previous married name Kubitz or Cruba). He had two sons, Walter, from a previous marriage, and Elias Dakota Bastian, my grandfather.Any info on Frederick's German ancestors, or any related information at all would be greatly appreciated.Many thanks!
