Kathryn "Catarina" (EHLERS) Kroeger came to America on 29 April 1868 with her husband, Hartwig KROEGER, and six children, aboard the ship Cimbria, from Hamburg to New York.
"Katie" Kroeger's obit of 8 Nov 1906, Moline Daily Dispatch, states that she had a brother, John Ehlers, and a sister, Mary (Ehlers) FORBES, who lived in Davenport, IA. Katie and her family lived in Rock Island, Rock Island County, IL, for 33 years, until her husband's death when she moved to Moline to live with her daughter, Mrs. Peter Langbehn Sr. (Anna Kroeger). AM SEARCHING FOR THE PARENTS OF KATIE, JOHN AND MARY Ehlers. In checking the Davenport City Directories around 1906, there were many Ehlers residing there. Do we have a match?
