I have found this mystery to be tied to My Juergen Friedrich Meyer [geb. 1814] second marriage. His first wife died 1865 Around 1867 He remarried to Cath Dor. Ahrens sister to that Mary Ahrens married to Mollemann. After Galena the Meyer family moved to Jackson county iowa. Instead of Molleman or even Mohlman one find them in the 1870 census a Holman or Hollman. Living with them is the son of Juergen Friedrich Meyer mentioned above. In the same neighborhood is Riecken and Schenk. A Michels also lives nearby as a laborer.
Missing are the sisters of Friedrich who were suppose to have come as well.
In 1880 he is living with someone else.
The statement that Anna is too young means one of the twins that were born to the second marriage. One of the twins died.
I am assuming that the Maria that came is the one born 1847. I also have spouses listed for nearly all J Friedrich Meyer's girls. Just as Meyer book suggests. Margarethe married Stille and I found that she lived in Domitz Mecklenburg. The Dorothea did marry a Koenig and she lived by Barskamp. And a Mary is suppose to have married Fehring. I believe it is as I said the one born Oct 1847. Although the first Maria born to Fredrich spouse is not known. all the rest are. But she may have married the Schmobel. Most of the others married and lived by Oldendorf. Haul, Holdorf etc. The Margarete Meyer who married Stille was in the Doemitz census of 1867 and 1900's so she is probably not the one who came in 1869.
And one of the Elisabeths or Liese maybe went somehow to Jackson county or elsewhere. It might be that a spouse died and that is why this Liese came. As well as the Maria Fehring though her marriage would not be until 1872-4. His name is probably Johann D or B. Fehring. She could have just passed through briefly and so not in any census/ Maybe a brief church record. I wish we had photos, but we only have some of the Meyer men.
And I really think it is the Maria Meyer Fehring who died in Montana with Johann Fehring who died at Adler Gulch, Montana.
Mystery deepens somewhat because a Mary Fehring owns land 1909 and 1885 or 95 at greene county by the border of Calhoun and Webster county. It is the swampland title dispute that went to court. It says Fred was tenant and so I believe Mary did not live there then.
So that explains the mystery somewhat.
The family relation of the Ahrens / Mohlmann family consists of a lot of surnames.
Ahrens from Mucklingen around hof five. Schenk, Schope or
Schoop, [rosseburg of oldenforf hof 30 surname info.] Michels, Schroeder, schulz, sander, Rieckens, Koopman, Brockman, Schlicht, and other Meyer. many others.
