the US in 1853.
What is the "New Jerusalem" movement? I've nerver heard of it before,
I second this question! My ancestor and his brothers came to WI in
1853, as did his future bride's family. Where can I find more
information about this movement?
My ancestors were Catholic, if that makes a difference.
