I am currently researching the following surnames found in my lineage. They are: Sorensen, Harman, Bartelt, Ulrich, Morr, Strous, Shipp, Urwiller, and Hanover. My family (Sorensen and Bartelt) originated from Denmark and Germany. They immigrated to the New World and orignally settled in Wisconsin (Milwaukee and Racine Area). The other side of the family (Harman, Urwiller, Ulrich, Strouse, Hanover, Morr) originally came from Germany and Switzerland. They immgrated to the New World and landed in the Philadelphia area. They settled in Pennsylvania before eventually moving west to Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, and finally Nebraska. The original family members settled in the Susquehanna River Valley of Pennsylvania from Muncy to Selins Grove areas.I have a particular interest in the family name of Strous (Strouse), since he (Cyrus)participated and died in the Civil War (Battle of Chancellorsville, VA). I am looking for any other decendents of his children that may have additional information on his life and military career in the 46th Penn. Vol Regiment. One of his daughters (Emma D. Strouse) married Thomas Deifenderfer around 1895. He died in 1944. Cyrus Strouses' widow ended up living with Emma and family until her death in 1912 in Shamokin, PA. Emma died in 1950 survived by a son, Melvin and one grandaughter. I am wondering if their are any personal effects from the Civil War with family members still alive. Please contact me via my E-Mail address. Many thanks!
