 Elusive People

My Great Grandmother Anna L. Kleinfeldt 1887 - 1980 (maiden name Gerber)

She entered the United States in 1903, according to the 1930 Census. I have recently found a passenger list that may be hers. What is known from this list is that an Anna Gerber age 16, a German, sailed from Bremen, Germany to Baltimore, Maryland. Oct 22 1903 - 5 Nov 1903 aboard the S.S. Cassel. The ultimate destination was Chicago, Illinois. All of this would fit. Other data is that she sailed with Emilie Molebzkowski (spelling?) age 19 and Fritz Modell age 20. They were going to see Minna Wallies. Minna might have been married to Gottlieb Wallies (Chicago census data). Her maiden name might have been Budnoh (U.S. Naturalization Record Indexes). I've been unable to connect my Great Grandmother to any of these names. The first time I've been able to find her for sure is in the 1910 census where she was a servant for George Frisbee and family. This is important because the passenger list seems to infer that Minna, Anna, and Fritz were cousins. It also gives the city of last residence (which I've yet to figure out). Currently this line dead ends at my Great Grandmother Finding a connection here would be extremely useful! Update: Came up dry with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. Apparently she became a citizen by marrying my great grandfather who was U.S. Born. Therefore she had no records that would have been generated by applying for naturalization.

Nathan Lanphear Jr.

1742 - 1790, The book: The Lanphere and related families genealogy (available free at archive.org) lists him as having 19 children! A huge amount even for the time. If he had this many kids they need to be properly distributed among his three wives. If you have any information on this please contact me.

Isaac Butterfield 1742 - 1812

Most Internet sources have handled him poorly as he had two wives. The fact that both were named "Ruth" is the source of this confusion. He undoubtedly had a large family with both wives. Given lack of detail in the censuses of the era it is difficult to track this. If you have any sources that prove the children of these marriages I would love to hear from you.
