Melissa Hardie posted "my great great grandfather was Henry F. Obermann - in his obituary I found he, his mother, 3 sisters and 2 brothers arrived here in the U.S. from Westphalen, Germany about 1881 but it may have been 1880 - he arrived and lived in Lincoln, Nebraska with his mother 3 sisters and 2 brothers. One sister I know was Charlotte who married a Charles Schmale and they lived out their years in Lincoln, NE and had 2 children Arthur & Freda. Henry & some other members of the family moved to Snyder, NE early on - and I believe Sophia B. was the name of another sister who married a William A. Schoeneck and they had 4 children, also lived in Snyder and at one time mother Louise or Louisa (Louise Obermann 1844-1925 # 69153886 is buried in Snyder, Nebraska. In 1891 and 1893 Lincoln, Nebraska, Louise - wid Frederick, rooms at 619 L - so does William, a lineman for the Lincoln Gas Co.In 1899 Lincoln, Nebraska, Louisa Obermann, widow of Fred., rooms at 229 N. 11th.) lived with her daughter Sophia and her husband & family (according to census records). I am looking for anything I can possibly find about the other sister or 2 brothers. Also, Henry married Minnie Hoth (pronounced Hooth) in 1890 and they moved to Kit Carson County, CO for about 6 years before returning back to Snyder, NE. They had 7 children. I am just trying to fill in the missing names of the family. It would be really great if I could find the missing maiden name of mother Louise, but that is probably very wishful thinking!"
