In Reply to: Re: BALLERSTEIN, WILHELM AUGUST 1856 GERMANY by Edwin N Ballerstein of 14

Our Ballerstein's came from Gladau, Germany. Wilhelm married Dorothea Dittmar they had 5 children. Wilhelm Jr. Gust, Otto, Emma and Herman. They got divorced and Dorothea met Adolph Bornowski Sr. They got married on the boat in 1894 and arrived with the 4 smallest children. Wilhelm came over later. My Grandpa Gust was 7 years old at the time. He was born 01/27/1887. He married my Grandma Alice Eggebrecht from Wisconsin. I have a brother Thomas Ballerstein in Stratford WI. And sister(s) Jo-Ann in MI. and Lois in AZ. I am in OH. My neice Tracy is putting together the family tree, a big job. Do you think we're talking same Ballerstein's?
