Hi Lonny,
My name is Mary Jordan. We are 2nd cousins; your Grandfather (Friedrich) was my Grandfartherís (Edward) brother. Georgette is my sisterís daughter.

I am hoping you can solve a mystery for me. At
http://pixel.cs.vt.edu/library/ships/link/halifax.txt
I found the following:

SHIP: SS Lake Champlain
DEPARTURE: Liverpool DATE: 14 April, 1903
ARRIVAL: Halifax DATE: 25 April, 1903
NAME AGE DESTINATION

Erdmann, Wilhelm 40 Winnipeg, MB
Maria 38
Jacob 18
Benjemin 16
Michael 15
Bernhard 12
Edward 5 (my Grandfather)
Friedrich 3
Who is Jacob? I know Wihelm and his brother Friedrich came to
America. According to Maria Seeger, her husband, Friedrich, came to America June 18, 1901. And Friedrich was 17 years older then Wilhelm. So who is Jacob?
I would like to compare my information with yours. Most of mind is extrapolated from the Odessa site. I have zero information on Janke. Hope to hear from you.
