52 Ancestors Week 49 - Margaretha Treimer

Margaretha Treimer was born on April 24, 1838 in Lemkendorf, Fehmarn, Germany.

At the time, Fehmarn was technically part of Denmark, though it seems only for tax purposes, they considered themselves either German or completely independent. The Schleswig-Holstein region rebelled against the Danish trying to take over and they tried to establish their own government. The Danish government fought back and occupied the region for 12 years. Then Prussia and Austria joined Schleswig in fighting off the Danes in what became the Second Schleswig War in 1864. At the end of the war, in 1864, the region was given over Prussia, now Germany.

Fritz and Margaretha were married in the early 1860’s. They had at least 8 children.

In October 1881 they left from Hamburg on the ship Australia going to New York. Except for the two oldest children, who joined the family a year later. They settled on a farm in southwest Illinois.

Margaretha died on April 19, 1910 in Illinois. On May 15, 1919, Fritz died in Campbell Hill, Illinois.
