Re: Nortman(n)s - Iowa origins to WWW soon.
I know -- I promised to load data online, but delayed.Here are the 3 primary reasons (meaning I need help):
1) George's wife Anna Otten Nortman 'disappeared' sometime between 1890 and 1894. I need a death date, or something.
2)George went to Davenport, IA, in March 1894 and married Anna Hinrichs Breer.They returned to Quincy, IL, in time to have a daughter, Margareth Caroline in December, 1894.Beside a Baptismal certificate, there is no other record of this child. I need a death date or something.
3). By 1896 George and Anna Hinrichs Breer Nortman were back in Davenport, IA, and had a daughter Tekla.(One record book in Davenport, IA, lists her as Margaretha Thelka Nordmann.Last trace of this ancestor is the 1931-1933 timeframe when she was living with her sister Rose in Denver, CO.Presume she is dead now, but would like confirmation.
