My grandfather Hans came to U.S. in 1911 from near the Kiel canal that was then in N. Germany. Did he say it had been Denmark prior to World War One? He changed the spelling from Rode by adding the "h" when he came into N.Y. He was an master carpenter, married Katie Stang and they lived the rest of their lives in Nebraska. They had 4 sons: Herman, Erwin, George, and Clarence who was my father. Clarence was a minister and is retired, living in California with Ruth, my mother. Hans had a brother or two who came here from Germany also. One was a shoemaker in Oregon (Bend?) I can get more info. if anything seems familiar or promising.
