Wilhelm Frederick Ernst
My great grandfather was Wilhelm Frederick Ernst. He married Anna Katherine(sp?) Hof (only one f on her boat ticket) who sailed from Bremen to Baltimore on her way to Cleveland, Ohio (also listed on the ticket). They had three children I am aware of. They were a Walter Jacob Martin Ernst (my grandfather) born 7/8/1888, an Adolph H. who might have gone by the name Otto, and a William. I only vague memories of meeting my grandfather's brothers. Walter married a Sue Morgan, Adolph married Lydia Clark, and William married Ruby. Most of this info is from my grandmother's bible which listed mainly deaths in my Grandfather's family. My grandparents in lived Cincinati, but my Grandfather from Cleveland.
Wilhelm went back to Germany after WWI, lived in Potsdam, and died in the russian zone in December,1948.
Anna Katherine Hof died 12/6/1931
