Re: Hermsen from Germany/Henrietta Hermsen
I'm sure my mother came from the area of Appleton, Wisconsin. While I never did to that part of the country, she made trips there to visit family and her mother. She often mentioned Neenah and other nearby communities. Her maiden name was Seibold and I'm certain there are other Seibolds living in that area. Theodore married rather late in life and had no family of his own but more or less adopted Joseph's kids, my family. We were the largest recipients of his estate at the time of his death. He had disposed most of his real estate holdings except for the "home" place, where he lived with his mother, my grandmother, until her death. After marriage, he moved to Omaha and built a house there and lived there until his death.
