KONRATH,  RUFFING,  SERRES and  WASSERBURGERS posted by LaVerne Catanzarite , daughter of Helen Theresa Konrath Reuter  1 Jun 2000
I have many roots in Sioux Co., especially Montrose where my mother was born.  My husband and I traveled to Montrose in 1993 to find the graves of my grandparents.  Several families came to the Montrose and Hat Creek area from Wisconsin, Konrath, Serres, Ruffing and  Wasserburgers.  They inter-married and so all are connected.  The Mormons have not filmed the records for the church at Ardmore or Montrose and I am wondering if you would have any clue as to where they ended up.   I would greatly appreciate any info you could uncover on this.

NIELSON,  DIDRICKSEN  posted by BC Rogers    Tuesday, May 30, 2000
My husband and I are going to be coming to western Nebraska later this summer.  I have been trying to do some research into my family line.  Some of my ancestors used to live in Glen and my great-great-great  grandmother is buried in the Danish cemetery.  The surnames that I am researching are Nielsen and Didricksen. Can you please give me some driving directions to find this cemetery if we are driving from Harrison? Does Sioux County have any marriage and/or census records dating back to the early 1900's? Looking forward to seeing your part of Nebraska.

I am seeking information regarding naturalization of my grandparents, Lenhart & Marguerite Woit who homesteaded in Sioux County from 1908 to 1913.   If my history is correct didn't they have to be naturalized in order to obtain homesteading priviliges? The best I  can figure out is that they were not naturalized until they went to Neb. Any help, suggestions, ideas would be appreciated.
