To the listers who may be able to help:
My husband's ancestors came from the Oldenburg area. His name was
Johann Heinrich Joseph Gortemoller, born 18 May 1800, Kloster Lage,
Rieste ?. Married Elizabeth Tangemann Korte Gortemoller and came to the
United States 1836-37. Cannot find the name of the village they lived
in or when exactly they did emigrate. Do know that Johann Heinrich's
father was Johann Bernard Joseph Gortemoller nee Becker born 1768 but
can go no furthur back than that time period. Can anyone help? I wish
I had studied German for longer than two years since after 50 years I
remember very little. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
in advance.
Sophie Gottemoller
