My name is Ernest Dean Rothgarn of Camarillo, CA. son of Donald Rothgarn, son of Walter & Alma Rothgarn of Zumbro Falls, MN. Eric Rothgarn, on staff at UC Davis, CA., son of Roger Rothgarn, Wanda Hayes of Red Wing, MN., grand daughter of Vera Rothgarn and I are doing the Rothgarn family. All Rothgarns in the USA are directly related to Claus H. Rothgarn, born 1822 in Germany.

Following are three files created by Eric Rothgarn. One is of the Albert/August P. Rothgarn chain, one is of the Claus H. Rothgarn chain and one is a color chart, all with photos which makes it very easy to see the relationships.

We are trying to verify the Albert/August connection (number 4 below).

1 Claus & Elsabea had the following children:
2 i. Claus J. (1852-1927)
3 ii. Andreas “Andrew” (1854-1938)
4 iii. UNNAMED---IS THIS ALBERT/AUGUST P. ROTHGARN?
5 iv. Hans Hinrich (1862-1931)
6 v. Katharina “Kate” (1867-1957)

We are making this information available to anyone who wants to share it, so please pass it along and let them know how to contact me, Eric or Wanda. We have much more info and photos to share and we are hoping we can receive some in return.

Mildred Rothgarn of Rugby, ND., daughter of Ted Rothgarn, is a wonderful source of info, but she dosen't have a computer yet. Contact me for her phone number.

Thank you. I'm looking forward to meeting you online.
