Not that I know of. Here's what I have:
Herman Martin Blank born Germany 3 Oct 1860
married abt 1880/81 in Germany to Mathilda Rogenbach b. 20 May 1863 in Germany
They immigrated to the US from Bremen, Germany arriving at New York on 13 May 1890 with their 3 small children and a 22 yr old male called Franz Blank who I assume is a brother or cousin of Herman. Herman & Mathilde can be found in Chicago in 1893 & 1896. By 1898 they were in Marion Twp, Juneau Co, Wisconsin. They later lived on farms near Lyndon Station, New Lisbon, and Elroy, WI.
A descendant said he remembered Herman showing him on a map that they came from Friedrichshafen near the Austrian border, but we have no independent evidence to corroborate that. Another descendant said their son Herman Jr, b. 1887, was born in Hamburg, Germany, but we have no independent evidence for that either.
Is Blank your Hedwig's middle name or her maiden surname and she married a Brandenburg?
