If you look at the data in the 1900 census, there are more kids beyond those listed with the family, likely older. I do see an August that could be theirs living in Cedar County, IA. Do you have a list of all of their children? August was born in Germany, and he matches with the ship record. Assume you have that ship record, correct? There are 2 other children on that ship. If you do have the names of the other two children from your research and you haven't seen a passenger list yet, this could 100% confirm that this is indeed the correct Henry. Census states the couple had 10 children, and 10 living at the time of the census. Census shows 7 with the parents, August would make number 8, and these other two kids on the ship would add up to....10!

Author: RobAlbert63 Surnames: Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.behrend/56.3.1.1/mb.ashx Message Board Post: Not a problem. If you have definitive proof that the Henry born in 1846 in Gadebusch is 100% your ancestor, and you didn't get him in the same manner as you did the earlier folks, then all you would need to do is continue doing what I was doing, which is to dig up the tree using the german records available on microfilm. This will work for Henry backwards, but you show the son you descend through as being born in Hamburg and those records might be harder to find. There are great many records that could show where your Henry was born if in fact the Gadebusch record was just one that matched the date of YOUR Henry, and you didn't have a document prior to that stating that Henry was born in Gadebusch. Church records in Cedar County might be helpful. Obituaries sometimes list towns of birth. Death certificates possibly (although if he died in 1907 they might not have one on him). Also if you know the name of the ship and date of arrival that they came over on, that can be really helpful if they sailed out of Hamburg port. I was at the FHC today doing research for several clients and did not have time, but next week, if time permits, I will try to check to see if the Henry born in Gadebusch married in that church possibly before moving to Hamburg (matching that up with the data you posted where he has a child born in 1880 in Hamburg). I did check the records for this parish that are online from 1876-1880 and no children were christened in this parish, so he may have met his wife elsewhere or even in Hamburg and married her and started a family there before coming to America. But if he did live in Hamburg, odds are fairly good that is the port he would have left from in 1881 (according to the 1900 census).

My grandfather only had one sister so we are talking a small family here as far as what I have to go by. my guess, his sister Cecil had photos and documents. someone had to have. my grandpa passed away two years before I was born so I only know him by stories from my mother and some cousins. It would be nice to get some help and be able to connect the dots. my guess, someone has done my Behrend line and I just need to find who did it. hopefully we can continue to discuss this. Thank you for your input and help. it's a direction. :) Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.

Author: RobAlbert63 Surnames: Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.behrend/56.3/mb.ashx Message Board Post: Thanks for clarifying the town and that it was in fact in Cedar County, IA!!! I guess my first question about this information, is how did you prove that the Henry Behrend born in Gadebusch in 1846 was in fact YOUR DIRECT ANCESTOR??? I noticed that his tombstone in the cemetery in Lowden only gives year of birth and death (if that is him of course). If you have something that say his exact birthdate and can confirm that this is truly your ancestor then I would concede that you have that generation correct. But from what I am seeing in the church records themselves that is where the information appears to stop being correct. I went to the marriage for Henry's parents. Although he and a few children were born before 1853, the parents did not marry until then, and so the children are initially listed as illegitimate, including Henry. In his parents' marriage record it states that his father is from Holdorf a small village nearby, and HIS father was from Kasendorf, another town in the area. I am not sure how you got the Henry's grandfather as Johann Christoph Behrend born in East Prussia in 1800. He for sure died before his son's marriage in 1853 in Kasendorf. You have the mother of Henry b. 1846 name correctly but date of birth about 1828. The marriage record states that she was born on the 10 Aug 1819. The earlier generations you have boucing all over the map of what is "Germany", and I would say that none of it is correct at all based on my observations of the church records beyond Henry b. 1846, and I am still not sure if you have corroborating evidence to completely prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that Henry is the one born on 23 Apr 1846 in Gadebusch. A person who has the name Henry Behrend being born in 1846 is not enough to tie this individual to your line. Now, because we are talking about Cedar county, IA, he VERY WELL COULD BE the one. Mainly because tons of folks from around Gadebusch came to Cedar and nearby counties in Iowa. My great grandmother was born in Othensdorf near Rehna, which is a stones throw from Gadebusch. Hopefully this will at least let you know what is fact from what is likely not. Not trying to burst your bubble, but I know my Mecklenburg duchies and with just Henry's birth record and his parents' marriage record, the earlier data is incorrect, as long as this is YOUR Henry! :) Robert Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.

He died in Westminster, California. His father was William Henry Behrend Sr. and was born in Hamburg, Germany and came to America at the age of two.
