I would be interested if anyone would have information about the Ehlert name that lived in Big Stone County-Ortonville and in Lac Qui Parle.
My Great Grandmother was Ernestina Ehlert who married William Ladwig in Grant County SD in 1899 her marriage cert states she was a resident of Lac Qui Parle. Ernestina's parents were William and Caroline (Tulowetzke) Ehlert.
They are recorded in the 1920 census as living in Ortonville. Her brother August died in Ortonville MN in 1964 and brother Fred Ehlert died in 1961 in Ortonville as well. I do have some info on the family but am always searching for more. Please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org
