The ancestors of the Dahlheimer family of Minnesota emigrated from Germany, via Ohio, to Dayton, Hennepin County, in 1855. The ancestors of the Bebeau (Bibeau) family of Minnesota emigrated from La Rochelle, France in the 17th century and settled first in the province of Quebec, Canada. In the mid-1800’s they immigrated to Minnesota (to Little Canada, Ramsey County and Dayton, Hennepin County).
Hoisington/Horsington Family. This web page is an attempt to gather all information on the Hoisingtons in America in one place and to foster further research. The Hoisington Family has been in North America for almost 350 years. The earliest documented Hoisington in North America was not named Hoisington, but John Horsington. Other early Horsingtons in America have been found in Virginia and North Carolina and we believe there is a connection, but as yet that connection has not been found
The BETLACH family originated in Czechoslovakia. Several of the family members settled in Hennepin County after coming to Minnesota. Betlach Jewelers started by Frederick Betlach is still in business today. Frederick was the son of Frank and Jenny Litera. Frank and Jenny's other son Jesse Betlach was a commercial artist in Minneapolis, having done the Land 'O Lakes Indian Maiden painting that is still used today.
Irma Lommen has
been researching the Limburg, Netherlands immigrants to America.
Not just any immigrants, but those who left from a certain part
of Limburg in the 1860's, especially the years 1860 to 1863. In
that period, hundreds of people from the center of Limburg left
their homeland to find a better living in America. Most of them
settled in Minnesota. "This project is taking a lot of my
time but is such great fun! During the years I have met many
descendants of those Limburg immigrants from all over America
through the Internet, but also in person in Minnesota and over
here in Limburg. I Have made many dear friends this way. Although
those immigrants went to several other States too, Minnesota has
become a special place to me. During the years I have gathered a
lot of information and on this page and I'd like to share some of
this with you. I hope it will give some a start and point others
in the right direction".
Some of the information on Irma's pages include:
Passenger list ship Chase, from Antwerp to New York, arr. May 15, 1862
Passenger list ship Germania, from Antwerp to New York, arr. Apr. 23, 1863
