I'm looking the ancestors of a John/Johann Roper that immigrated to the U.S. in 1856 on the ship Saranak departing from Ireland. He travel with three children, David, age 14, Eliza, age 7 and Ellen, age 5. No last names of the children on the manifest, but I believe the children may be John's siblings. All I know is he was born in Dec of 1834 in Mecklenburg. He settled in the Goodhue County, Minnesota area. I have no other information.
I'm also looking for the ancestors of Ludwig Thimijan/Timijon/Timiyan also born in Mecklenburg abt 1795/96. He married a lady name Mary/Marie/Maria before 1830. He also immigrated to the U.S. sometime before 1867. Ludwig also settled in the Goodhue County, Minnesota area. Ludwig's daughter, Anna Mary, married John/Johann Roper in the U.S. -- probably in Goodhue County. Can anyone assist in finding the ancestors of both families? Thank you.
