My great-great grandfather, Joachim Mahn, along with his wife Sophie, sons Joseph and John, and daughters Marie and Sophie, arrived aboard the Ship Oder on June 9, 1862 in New York from Hamburgh. They initially settled in the Watertown, WI area. My great grandmother Marie was confirmed in the Luther church in Watertown, WI on 5 April 1868. By 1871 the family had moved and settled in Harrison township, Kandiyohi County, MN.
I am looking for any other family in WI that they may have settled near when they arrived.
Does anyone know if the the Lutheran Church in Watertown in 1868 still exists and what the name of it is? I am also interested to know if there were any other Mahn's in Watertown at the same time? Any information would be greatly appreciated.
