Re: Anna Grumm mar. to Arend Zimmerman
Mrs. Arend Zimmerman had a sister Angeline Grumm, who first married Henry Jacobs on August 12, 1861. Later he died and she married Arend Hanken. Angeline was born August 13, 1841 at Wiesederfehn and came to America in the Spring of 1857 with her parents, possibly her sister who married Arend Zimmerman. She reported in a birthday celebration in August of 1932 (August 18, 1932 Monticello Express) that 72 relatives were in the group of passengers who were bound for America. The trip, exceedingly long even for the standards of the day, took six weeks and four days. They sprang a leak in the ship when out on the open sea, probably requiring them to drop sails so not to stress the hull and make the leak worse.Her father died in October of 1857 and her mother only survived two more years before passing away as well.
