Nebraska Kamraths

There is much to suggest that the Nebraska Kamraths, who are descendants of August F. Kamrath were closely linked to the North Dakota Kamraths. Johann Friedrich Wilhelm von Kamrathís son, Christian Friedrich Gottfried von Kamrath, who was the progenitor of the North Dakota line left his native Naugard district in Hinter Pomerania in 1867. He settled with his young family in Dixon County, Nebraska to be near members of his wifeís family the von Rakows, who had immigrated previously to America. In 1885, the below August F. Kamrath left the same district of Hinter Pomerania as had Christian Friedrich Gottfried von Kamrath and settled in the same Nebraska county as Christian had. Additionally, August was familiar with the von Rakow family, members of which acted as godparents to some of his later children. While, Christianís only son to survive to adulthood left Nebraska to homestead in North Dakota in 1907, Augustís children remained in Nebraska and in neighboring Iowa for many years afterwards. August may have been a nephew or younger cousin of Christian.

August F. Kamrath was born on 9 October 1859, in the Naugard district of Hinter Pomerania, Prussia and died on 9 December 1944, in Dixon County, Nebraska. He married on 6 October 1887, in Hinter Pomerania, Prussia Anna Mathilde Auguste Zuge. Anna was born on 6 February 1866 at Massow in the Naugard district of Hinter Pomerania, Prussia. She died on 21 May 1942, at Ponca in Dixon County, Nebraska. In 1885, August immigrated to Nebraska, where he spent the rest of his life as a farmer. August and Anna were the parents of:
I. Friederich Wilhelm Kamrath born on 8 July 1885, in the Naugard district of Hinter Pomerania, Prussia and died on 19 February 1959, at Plainview in Pierce County, Nebraska. He married on 15 February 1911, Martha L. Schram.
II. Carl August Kamrath (twin) born on 14 September 1888, in Dixon County, Nebraska and died on 26 March 1973, at Sioux City in Woodbury County, Iowa. He married on 28 October 1930, at Martinsburg in Dixon County, Nebraska Hazel Henrietta Stark born in 1909.
III. Ella Lousia Kamrath (twin) born on 14 September 1888, in Dixon County, Nebraska and died in January 1970, at Ponca in Dixon County, Nebraska. She married in 1924, Earl Leroy Conrad.

V. Anna Albertina Maria Kamrath born on 30 March 1891, in Dixon County, Nebraska and died 24 January 1964, at Ellensburg in Kittitas County, Washington. She married on 21 February 1912, at Ponca in Dixon County, Nebraska Clarence Manford Jones.
VI. Frank Wilhelm Carl Kamrath born on 1 May 1892, in Dixon County, Nebraska and died on 3 April 1955, at Sioux City in Woodbury County, Iowa. He married on 21 February 1923, Elsia Dora Albertine Harder born 4 May 1901. They were the parents of:
1. Wilfred Joe Kamrath born 23 January 1938 and died 19 January 1973.
VII. Alma Emily Kamrath born on 13 August 1893, in Dixon County, Nebraska and died on 14 November 1973, at Ponca in Dixon County, Nebraska. She married on 14 January 1914, Jesse Crofoot, born in 1888 and died in December 1971.
VIII. Ida Bertha Martha Kamrath born on 24 January 1895, in Dixon County, Nebraska and died on 10 September 1988, at Selah in Yakima County, Washington. She married sometime after 1920, Roger Arms.
IX. Martha Minna Lousia Kamrath born on 5 February 1896, in Dixon County, Nebraska and died in 1966. She married after 1920, Henry G. Wendte born in 1890 and died in 1952. He had previously married her younger sister, Meta.
X. Meta Emma Maria Kamrath born on 5 July 1897, in Dixon County, Nebraska and died in 1920. She married in circa 1916, Henry G. Wendte born in 1890 and died in 1952.
XI. Clara Gertrude Margaret Kamrath born on 19 September 1901, in Dixon County, Nebraska and died in November 1980, at Ponca in Dixon County, Nebraska. She married after 1920, Virgil Dittmann.

XV. Emil Robert Herbert Kamarth born on 23 October 1908, in Dixon County, Nebraska and died on 16 December 1908, in Dixon County, Nebraska.

I am unsure how the following Kamrath is related to the above family members.

Doris Kamrath born 1904 and died 1975 in Dixon County, Nebraska. She married Clarence G. Stallbaum born in 1906.

The point of contact for this Kamrath line is:
