Juergen Martin SIEH, b. 28 Oct 1782, had son

Juergen SIEH, b. 15 Mar 1813
Hans SIEH, b. 11 May 1815

were at least three daughters--Christina,Wiebke who

It appears your Johann SIEH b.25 Apr 1818 is brother to my GGGrandfather Claus SIEH. I have no info about his wife nor daughters, but there was supposedly a son, John, who came to USA in 1864 to visit his Uncle Claus SIEH. I have learned this via another descendant. I would enjoy further communication with you to continue comparing notes and records. Please contact me via email at Toothfairy1011@aol.com

Jeanne Sieh Posten,
I believe we are related through Hans Sieh, a brother of your great, great grandfather. Hans is my great, great grandfather. When my son, Madison, was in 8th grade he looked up some information on his great, great grandfather Peter. Below is the information.

Summary:
My great-great grandfather Peter Henry Sieh was one of seven sons of Hans Sieh who lived in Flensburg, Schleswig-Holtstein. This part of the world was owned by Denmark, then Prussia and now Germany. The seven Sieh brothers immigrated to America in 1880. He was 28 years old. They sailed from the Flensburg Fjord to England then on to America. Three of the brothers came over first to America. They came to America before Ellis Island was open so they went through Castle Garden. Since they spoke some English, had enough money and had a destination in America, Iowa, they went through the immigration process quickly. They traveled by train to Iowa. They established themselves in small businesses in a small town in Reinbeck, Iowa. Peter lived in Reinbeck for almost sixty years and was considered one of the early pioneers. The land my great-great grandfather brought in America was first owed by John A. Roebling, the architect of the Brooklyn Bridge. Roebling was paid by the US government, instead of money, this land in Iowa. Roebling sold it to my great-great grandmother’s relative who then sold it to Peter Sieh in 1894. Although Sieh sounds German because Flensburg has been part of Germany since 1920, actually we are Danish. The land was owed by Denmark and the town was established in 1284 as part of Denmark.

All the best to you. My husband and I live in Lake Forest, IL. As I mentioned we have one son who is a senior in high school. Years ago we lived in New Jersey, while there we met a distant cousin of my father who lived in Flensburg. Her mother was a daughter of Hans. She didn't immigrate to the U.S. with her seven brothers. She stayed behind to take care of Hans. I don't know if she is still alive. Her name is Christa Sieh.

Best regards,
Rebecca Sieh Gordon

I believe we are related. My Great Grandfather was Jacob Peter Sieh. The story I was told was he and a brother came to America. There was a brother left behind in Germany that was gassed in one of Hitler's gas chambers. If you have any information about this please email me at nwheaton@email.phoenix.edu. I have a copy of the family tree from germany that was obtained by a cousin when they visited Germany some years go. The information on the tree is verified by the Burgermiester in Schleswig, Germany. When they got to Germany they couldn't find anyone that spoke English. They went to the schoolhouse and the teacher spoke enough english to know what they were looking for and called for the Burgermeister. The Sieh family is supposedly the oldest family in the Schleswig region.

Hi

My father's grandmother, born Maria Wilhelmina Riecken on December 14, 1862, was apparently the "illegitimate daughter" of Christina Riecken and Jurgen Sieh, son of Joahnn Sieh, the resident at Henstedt. I would be grateful for any information on Jurgen Sieh or his family.

Kind regards

Peter Cramer
