a question: Ebersdorf with Bremervoerde? Hadelner Land ( Hadelner country )? Between Bremerhafen and Cuxhaven ?
An ancestor of me was a mason Geselle from the country Hadeln. His name was Carl Stelling. He had a child with a Mette Thalmann. They were not married. The Mette Thalmann has emigrated without child into the USA. Since I have no further information over the Carl Stelling, I wonder whether he has not also emigrated. It must have been about 1850. Do you have further information over your Stelling predecessors?
Greeting from Germany.
