Hi, Jim,

Have a great trip to AK! I'm going to NH for 9 days
beginning Tues. so will also be out of touch.

My sister Joanne Dyhrkopp Schar is returning to
Spencer soon. She just returned from Nairobi and is
in Minneapolis with our sister Carol now. She knows
Connie and Clifford better than I because she has
spent more time in Iowa. Hopefully she can join you
when you go to see Connie and Clifford. She can be
reached through her mother-in-law Alice Schar. ‎(She
lives in Spencer.)‎

Do you think there are any others in your Moeller
family who might know about the European relatives?

In Reply to: Moeller in Schleswig-Holstein by Tom Severn of 464

Hi, my great-great-grandmother Sophia Christina Arber ‎(Osbar)‎ from Harmherst/Lensahn ‎(a widow with several children and step-children from Durkop)‎ married Nicolas Moeller in the Sielbeck area of S-H in Feb. 1835. Together they had four Moeller children, all born in Sielbeck and baptized in Malente:
Anna Catharina Margaretha, born Jan. 13, 1836
Hans Hinrich, born March 14, 1838
Han Hinrich Rudolph, born April 18, 1840
Matthias Hinrich Wilhelm, born June 14, 1843.

They left Sielbeck about 1844. I think that the youngest two ended up first in Benton County, IA, then in Clay County, IA. I would like to know where they were from 1844 until c. 1869 when they emigrated to the US. They may have gone to Denmark because that is where my great-grandfather married in 1858, but I can't find them in the Danish census records ‎(online)‎.

My great-grandfather Johan Heinrich August Dührkoop, son of Klaus Heinrich Dürkopp, was born in Malente in 1831 and lived in Sielbeck where his parents ran an inn until his father died in March 1834, leaving 9 children, one not yet born. His father had come from Arensbok in 1802. His mother then married Nicolaus Heinrich Moeller, born in 1802 in Wermstorf.

Hope we find a connection,

Donna
