William & Minnie Ernst - Iowa

  of 998

William (or Wilhelm) Ernst was born in Germany, June 1831. He came to the U.S. in 1857. 6 years later he married Minnie (or Wilhelmina) who came from Germany in 1858. They settled near West Branch/Iowa City in Johnson County. I believe they farmed. They had 2, possibly 3 children, Jerome, Mary & ??? Mary was my great-grandmother. Mary married Humphrey Shay & they had 2 daughters, Mina (named after her grandmother) & Irene. Mina married Edward Teslik and Irene married William Wolfe. I have a photo of William & Minnie Ernst. I would like any information that anyone might have that fits this family's history.
