Hi, I am trying to trace my family history and would like to know who Fredonia was married to. In my family there is a Bernhardt Brandt that was the child of Eliza de Nully. My mother's middle name is Salome and her sister's name is Anna.

I saw your post from a couple of years ago. Fredonia was married to John Brandt, according to her death certificate. She died Sept 15, 1924.
