I am looking for information on an ancestor of mine, Wilhelmina (or Wilhelmine) Manthey, born around 1867 in Minnesota. I know that in 1881 she married Gustav Frank, a German immigrant, in Iosco, Waseca County MN, and she was listed as Minnie Manthey. They went on to have five daughters and three sons together, and lived in the Janesville area of Waseca County. They divorced in 1903, though I cannot find a record of that, and it is believed that he remarried and had another family, possibly in the Mankato or Blue Earth County region.
I can not find any records of Wilhelmina before she started her family with Gustav. All I know is that she was born around 1867 and in Minnesota. I believe she was most likely raised in the Waseca area, but I cannot find any more to it than that. If you have any information, I would love to see it!
