Bertha Jasdrow….related to Herman from yesterday?

It appears that both wedding photos were taken in the same studio, with the same tiny fur pelt and the same basket of flowers in the background.

  5. There is a connection between the Jasdrow and Schauland (Photo 1601) family.

    Note the "Mr. August Jasdrow and Mrs. Wilhelmina Schauland" part:

    "Mrs. Helmine Gollnick was born on the 11th of March, 1835, in Schoenwaldt, West Prussia, Germany. She married Mr. Jasdrow, who lived with her many years, but preceeded her in death at the age of 65 years . In 1892 the deceased immigrated to America and settled on a farm west of Hankinson with her daughter, Mrs. Julius Roeder, where she resided many years.

    On April 13th, 1896, she married Mr. August Gollnick, of Hankinson. Three children of the first union are still living, Mr. August Jasdrow and Mrs. Wilhelmina Schauland live in Germany and Mrs. Julius Roeder in Hankinson.

    Mr. August Gollnick also preceeded her in death on March 7th, 1928. The deceased became ill on the 26th of December and was given Holy Communion by Rev. Meier. Pleurisy was the cause of death on Dec. 30th, at 1 AM.

    Three children and seven grandchildren mourn her death. Funeral services will be held at 2 o'clock in the house and church with Rev. Meier officiating."

    2. Info on Mr. and Mrs. ROEDER in Hankinson, the daughter and the son-in-law of Wilhelmine/Helmine GOLLNICK, ? née SPLITTSTOESSER ?, widowed JASDROW/JASTROW referred to as GRANDMA GOLLNICK and to whom the photos probably were sent to from Germany (see photos number 1601 and 1602):

      They are buried at the United Cemetery in Hankinson, N.D., the names are on the same headstone for the grave. Find A Grave Memorial# 101914610

      Place of residence is referred to as Brightwood, Elma, Greenfield&Waldo Townships Hankinson village, Richland County North Dakota.

      A member of Find A Grave -NDTerri- seems to have family ties to the Medenwaldts. I left her a message informing her about this blog and the photos. :-))

    3. Photo Number 1597 may also be "in this family" Mueller - Muehler?
