I am looking for my great-grandfather, Adolphus Mittelstaedt who was born March 12, 1826 in Germany.
I don't have any idea where in Germany he came from. He imigrated to a USA port about 1943, somewhere near Buffalo N.Y. I was told he spent 1 -3years there learning the craft of "wagon maker/carraige maker", before he came to settle in 'Stonebridge', Ontario, Canada. (now known as Port Colborne) He opened a shop of his own and ran it very succesfully until the year before his death in 1906.
Anyone with any info.on him or where to start looking in Germany, please get in touch with me.
Linda Shoup nee Mittlestead
