Terri

It is interesting that my great granduncle (Michael Dahl, family from Oberotterbach Germany) migrated with my ancestors to Louisville, Jefferson County KY and Michael married Barbara Knobel. They lived in died in Louisville. However, this is the interesting part. I just found that Barbara came from Switzerland in 1864 with her parents and siblings, see info below, and the family moved immediately to Otter Tail County MN. Barbara ended up in KY and the rest of her family stayed in MN. Why did she come to KY and marry? Probably because she had family down in KY. Here is the info from Germans to America.
