Johanna Lucke was born 29 Nov 1861 in Hannover, Duetchland. She came to the USA Apr 1881 to New York. She married William Brose (not sure if spelling is right) who was born 1862 in Germany. He immigrated to USA through Chicago, Illinois July 1876 and applied/received his naturalization 20 Sep 1888 when they lived in Moyer Township, Swift County, MN. This is as far as I can follow him. They had five children: Mary b. Aug 1885, William b. 01 Feb 1887, Helena b. 18 May 1891, Martha b. 30 Apr 1893 and Bertha b. 18 Mar 1895. Mary was born in Benson MN and the others were in Moyer, Swift MN. Johanna married August Pust 17 Aug 1895 in Appleton, MN. They lived in and around Appleton in Swift County and did reside outside of Danvers Village until 1902. August Pust was born 20 Jan 1867 Germany (Prussia). He immigrated to USA 1891 from Swinemaude, Germany to New York. Received his naturalization papers 20 Jan 1892. Johanna and August had 3 children while living in Minnesota; Otto b. 1996, Alma b. 1898 and August (my father) 1900 before immigrating to Big Valley, Alberta, Canada. Augusta Johanna was b. 1904 and Alfred 1906 in Stettler, AB.
I have been able to find out much about William Brose but would like to know what happened to him. August and Johanna came through the northern states to Montana and then north into Alberta. They crossed over the border several times visiting family in Montana , Idaho and Washington. It would be nice if I could find the families. If you could help me it would be much appreciated.
