Re: Ernst Family in Switzerland
Mindy, I'm new at using this but I e-mailed
you about two weeks ago concerning Rudolph
Ernst and Eliza Basler Ernst from Holzikan,
Switzerland.I had wondered if Holzkan was
really your town.I don't have any information as to who Rudi's parents were.
They immigrated to the U.S. in 1889 with four
of their six children.My grandfather Charles and his sister Sophia were born here.
The rest were all born in Switzerland.He
eventually went back to Switzerland and died
their in 1926(?)We don't know if Rudi had any relatives that also came to America.He settled around Ridgeway, Iowa, most of the family still lives there or in Cresco, Iowa.All in the same area.I am in the Kansas City area now.Could you let me know either way if you think our two Ernst families might
be connected.Thank you.
