I am looking for any information about my grandmother's family. Her name was Alfrieda (Frieda) Antonia Sophia Beckman, born 11/5/1888 in Schleswig-Holstein area of Germany. Father was Johann Beckman, mother was Matilda Nielsen Beckman. Nielsen grandparents (Niels Jens and Anna (Thomsem?) Nielsen emigrated to Clinton County, Iowa in 1901. Frieda married a Richard Cole in February 1911 in Clinton, Iowa. Ellis Island records show that a Johann Beckman, age 40, Frieda Beckman, age 11, and Amalia Beckman came to US in 1898. Please contact me if you know anything about this family or the Nielsens.
