I am looking for information regarding Peter Polzin and Charlotte Louisa Radke. Peter was born on 5 Nov 1803 in Germany and died on 13 Jul 1884 in Penn Twp., McLeod Co., MN. Charlotte was born on 25 Jan 1806 in Germany and died 26 Aug 1884 in Penn Twp., McLeod Co., MN. They were married in Germany and are both buried at St. Matthew's Lutheran Church Cemetery in Penn Twp., McLeod Co., MN. They came from Germany on a ship called "Elbe" which sailed from Hamburg on 12 Apr 1856 and landed in New York. Known children are William (1833-1904), Marie Sophie Fredericka (1835-1923), Johann (1837-1926), Wilhelmina Louise (1840-1931), Caroline (1842-1880), Johanna (1845-1939), Bertha (1849-1872), and Herman (1852-1937). They may have had other children which stayed in Germany. Any information about Peter, Charlotte, their children, or their parents would be appreciated. Thanks!
