States: New York: Bronx
We now know that John Asmus Asmussen came over on the SS Gellert Jul 25, 1888 from Hamburg when he was around 12 (born Jan 26, 1875 or 1876) He was living in Flensburg, Germany. I can't find any information on this ship sailing on this date to Port New York. He lived in Hoboken, NJ at one time and Bronx, NY - supposedly he came over with other family - possibly a sister - we have no names for any brothers or sisters he may have had. His parents were Andrew Asmussen and Margaret Rheder Asmussen and I don't even know if they came over with him since he was only 12 years old. Also I don't know what other census dates there are from 1888 to the 1930 one which might finally give us some other family names - of course if he had a sister and she married I would also have to find out to who - John's oldest son William was only 12 years old when John passed away so the information was lost with him.
By the way, many thanks again Bob for your help on the 1930 Census.
