These are my Wisconsin ancestors.  Johann was born in the Electorate of Hannover (AKA Electorate of Brunswick-L√ľneburg) which was part of the Holy Roman Empire.  Except that one year before he was born, Napoleon Bonaparte's armies had occupied it.  So technically he was born under French rule.  Anna was born in the independent Duchy of Oldenburg.  Both places are now parts of Germany.  No idea yet when or where they married.  It was probably somewhere in Germany before their oldest known son was born there.  They came to America some time between 1841 (when their daughter Hannah was born in Germany) and 1847 when John Fredrick was born in WI.  The family first settled near West Bend, Washington Co., WI, then later moved to Sheboygan Co., WI.

Some time between 1880 and 1884, John Fredrick moved his family to Charles Mix Co., SD, where Mary Elizabeth met and married William Frederick OGDEN.
