Please help me find out who my grandfather was. Joseph Wagner owned a restaurant in Mpls in 1905 (not in city directory). He married my grandmother there on Oct. 12, 1905. Her name was Jennie/Genevieve Stearns. They built a houseboat and sailed down the Mississippi in the spring of 1906. He died in Iowa shortly afterwards. His obit tells me nothing of his German origin. I've gone to Ft. Wayne, IN, searched ship records, written to the Mpls Court House for naturalization records as well as to the Nat'l Archives. My only hope is the unindexed 1905 census. If there is anyone who has access to this, please let me know. Thank you!!
