Re: Family Zueger / North Dakota
Information that was collected by Sharon Christensen for the Emil Zueger Family was incorrect and should be updated.
Casper Benedict Zuger, born 1857 in Wagnen, Switzerland.Married on February 9, 1889 to Genevieve Koch, born August 29, 1860 in Switzerland.She died 10 miles North of Mandan, No. Dakota October 18th 1909.
Casper took the entire family back to Switzerland where all themost of the girls lived the rest of their lives.All the sons moved back to America. Casper married again, but I do not have the records in front of me.
Emil Zueger (no middle name) was born in August 13, 1897 in Mandan, North Dakota.Emil served on in the Swiss Army during World War 1 (as Emil Zuger) and after that married Emilia Elsener (born April 4, 1911 in Reichenburg, Switzerland. (died in 1958 in Mandan, North Dakota.
Emil and Emilia first had twin boys in which one died shortly after birth. Arthur survived (born in 1932 September19). Then came Emil, Paul, Sonja, and David (born Nov. 05, 1948).Records can be furnished if requested.
Emil Zueger's brothers were Bennidict (b - 1884),Herman, John, Anton (b-1895).Sisters were Rose (b-1893), Anna (born in 1900) and Bertha (b-1899).
My sister Sonja would have more information and My brother Art has documents showing accurate information.
