In Reply to: Re: LEDDIN-GERMANY PRIOR TO 1886 by Nancy Schleuter of 37


My husband's Father was Walter William Leddin of Benson, Minnesota. His Father was August Leddin of Holloway, Minnesota. I believe some of your family attended my Mother-in-law's funeral, Anna Leddin, in Benson, Minnesota a few years ago.

My husband Donald Walter Leddin and I live in Melbourne, Florida. We have a son Gregory Donald Leddin who lives in Kennesaw, Georgia.

We visited Leddin, Germany in August of 1995 and found some interesting inscriptions on the west side of the church. I have posted the inscriptions on my home page if you desire. Leddin is located about 70 KM northwest of Berlin.

Our brother-in-law, Eugene Hokanson of Chatfield Minnesota has down a Leddin family tree and many generations back. If you are interested I can put you in touch with him.

We are planning to go back to Leddin Germany in a few years and do more research. When we were there the church was closed as the wall between east and west Germany had just come down.

Best regards,

Karen Leddin
