Looking for information concerning my great-grandmother Anna Sieders Wenzel who homesteaded 160 acres of land at Section 26, Township 15N, Range 10E in Perkins County, October 11, 1911. She was the widow (of Ben Wenzel) at the time and the mother of two step-daughters and five children of her own. Only one child, her daughter Albertha, was with her at that time. Her address on the patent papers was Wyandotte, Perkins County.
Looking for any information to allow me to reconstruct the family history. She later married a Mr. Willem DeWit and by 1920 had relocated to Sheldon, Iowa. Anna's father's name was probably
Harm Sieders and he may have been born in the Netherlands and came to South Dakota via Illinois.
