I am looking for my great grandfather's family. My records say he was born Johan Carl
Meyer. I have found him listed as Carl, Karl, Chas or Charley. The 1880 census of
Clayton Co., Read Twp., says Chas Meyer born in Mecklenburg. His birthday is December 31,
1838 according to the momument at the cemetery in Clayton Center. He was married to
Elisabeth Wille, my great grandmother. They were buried as Carl & Elizabeth Meier.
I am coming to Elkader on June 30th to look in the library, court house, etc. to see what
I can find about this mysterious family. Any ideas?
