Update: new descendant info and notes for Ernestine
Posted by: Blair Barbeau (ID *****2973) Date: September 15, 2002 at 09:50:49
In Reply to: Ernestine Sommerfeld m Johann Noss, GER by Blair Barbeau of 99

Descendants of Johann NOSS

Generation No. 1

1. Johann1 NOSS or NASS was born Bef. 1841 in of Briesen, West Prussia, Germany. He married Ernestine SOMMERFELD.

Notes for Johann NOSS or NASS:

According to a newspaper article, there were an additional number of sons and daughters that remained in Germany, and were still alive in the early 1900's. These may have included August and Emil, who corresponded with the Noss's in Minnesota and Saskatchewan. One of them may have had a daughter named Marguerite (married name Eckwert?) as we have a photo of her dated 1944 or 47. Correspondence from August was postmarked Bahrendorf, West Prussia, and from Emil was Heilsberg in 1911, from Marguerite was Marienburg in 1923

Notes for Ernestine SOMMERFELD:

Karl Sommerfeld may have been a brother or nephew of Ernestine. There is an old picture, perhaps from the early 1900's which includes him and a son named Alfred, along with a wife and perhaps a sister or aunt of either parent. There are a number of letters written in German that were addressed to or from Friedrich Sommerfeld written between 1910 to 1948, but am unsure whether they were simply forwarded by Rudi Sommerfeld (perhaps name of Friedrich) in the mid 1950's. Rudi married Cathrin and had son Martin in Hannover, Germany, and moved to Saskatchewan in the 1960's? and then to Saskatoon. Augusta Noss sponsored their immigration.

Ernestine's name was listed as Christine in her son Gustav's obituary, but Ernestine is more probable.

Children of Johann NOSS or NASS and Ernestine SOMMERFELD are:

2 i. August2 Nass, born in of Bahrendorf, West Prussia; died Aft. 1937 in ,,,Germany.

3 ii. Emil Nass, born in of Heilsburg, West Prussia; died Aft. 1927 in ,,,Germany.

4 iii. (Unknown) Noss, died Aft. 1927 in ,,,Germany.

+ 5 iv. Gustav Noss, born January 29, 1861 in Kreis Briesen, West Prussia, Germany; died October 23, 1939 in Williston, North Dakota, USA.

+ 6 v. William Frederick NOSS, born May 16, 1864 in Za Radowisk, Kreis Briesen, West Prussia, Germany; died June 1927 in Eagle Bend, Minnesota, USA.

+ 7 vi. Emilie (Millie) Noss, born December 15, 1869 in Kreis Briesen, West Prussia, Germany; died March 04, 1949 in South Haven, Minnesota, USA.
