Frederick Moritz (b. 1840) HAN and Elizabeth Moritz (b. 1844) HAN
Posted by: Sam Sloan (ID *****8219) Date: November 06, 2008 at 07:46:45
  of 231

I have discovered that one of my distant inlaws was Ella Moritz Sloan (1876-1946), wife of Albert Sloan (1877-1958). Both died in Chicago. Ella was from Reedsburg, Sauk, Wisconsin.

This clearly matched with a family in Reedsburg, Sauk, Wisconsin in the 1880 Census. There were eight children and they all match with names and dates in her obituary.

The question is the parents and the two oldest children are listed in the 1880 census as having been born in HAN.

Where is HAN ? Is it the "Kingdom of Hanover"?

I have never seen a listing like this in the 1880 census. Can anybody answer this question. Here is the full 1880 census for this family.
