I am searching for information on Alexius USSELMANN who married Margareta KESSLER (or STOLZ?) in the village of Selz and went to the Dakotas with their children in the late 1880s. Their son Johann (John) married Marianna (Mary Ann) DETLING (or HEILMAN?), originally of the village of Mannheim, around 1895 and they went from South Dakota to Kansas to Alberta, Canada, to Oregon and back to Alberta where they both died. Other siblings of John's went to Saskatchewan. I am descended from their son Jacob Thomas USSELMAN and his wife, Doris Annie LEA of Shropshire, England.
I'm interested in getting in touch with descendants of this family and exchanging information. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
