Thanks for the reply. Your information is very interesting, here's what I have:
Ida Boerner (born 1862 in Kreis Ueckermünde, Pommern, Prussia) was a daughter of Carl Boerner and Caroline Buckman. These people emmigrated around 1866 to America. The family shows up on the 1870 Federal census living in Wright County, MN, Rockford township, very near the "Frederick Boerner (Börner)" family of which this posting is the subject of. I believe that Ida's father, Carl Boerner, was a brother to my 2nd great grandfather, once again "Frederick Boerner (Börner), but I have not yet made the connection.
I have Ida Boerner as being married to Charles Plath and living near Delano, MN, Wright County. I do have an "Annie" Boerner as a sister to Ida and show Annie as being married to a Dyer.
Now, there is another Frederick Boerner in this picture that is shown living with the Carl Boerner & Caroline Buckman family in the same 1870 census I mentioned above. This Frederick was twice married, first to Fredericka Gotzlaff and then to Maria Gellert. This Frederick first settled in Wisconsin and was a Civil War veteran. Unknown why, but Frederick remarries and moves to Minnesota and stays there until his death in 1909 (He is buried only a couple of graves away from Caroline Buckman (Boerner) (above) and Ida Plath (Boerner) that you write of. This cemetery is west of Delano, MN, along US 12).
Frederick Boerner's parents are listed on his death record as "Frederick Boerner and Abertine Wolfe".
All of these Boerner's and the name Buckman emmigrated from the same part of Germany (Prussia).
I am very interested in any information that you may have, especially on your "GGrandmother Boerner" and the "Buckmann" that she was married to, etc.!!!
This is all very exciting and there is a Buckman descendant that I have recently been corresponding with whom only recently has come to light!
