additional information:
Census records indicate that the three oldest children were born in Prussia (conflicting information regarding Herman). They must have immigrated c. 1845-1849 (they are in the 1850 census). Census records also say that wife Fredericka had a total of 11 children, of whom 8 were living in 1910. Johann was probably from Pomerania, somewhere near Tribsow. (Some of the Steffens who were members of Trinity Milwaukee c. 1850 were from Schwirsen.)
