J.F. Rolf was born in Holstein, Denmark in 1795 and married Catherine who was born in 1798, at Hansfold, Denmark. They accompanied their son Joechem (James) Rolf to the United States from Hamburg, Germany. They had another older son, Henry. J.F. was 60 years old and Catherine was 57 years old when they made the trip to the US.

Joechem (James, Jochin, or Joachim) Fredrick Rolf was born in 1824, at Holstein, Denmark. James married Abel Huch, who was born in 1829. They settled near Davenport, Iowa. Their children were Jochin Fredrick Rolfs born March 12, 1852, Claus Henry Rolfs born March 30, 1854, Christian Theodore Rolfs born July 10, 1856, Peter Louis Rolfs born November 20, 1858, and Whili Mina (Wilhemina, Minnie, Mena) Rolfs born June 8, 1860.

If anyone has any information about Joechem Fredrick and Catherine Rolf's lives in Denmark or other ancestors, I would great appreciate the information.
