My Grandfather first came to America at age 15 from Germany. He farmed and met my German Grandmother in Nebraska. They went back after they married to see their families back in Germany. On the return trip Grandma was pregnant with the first child. The baby boy was born on the ship and sadly he died. They had a burial at sea for the baby.

They farmed until their deaths in Nebraska and had 7 more children: one was my Mother.
