MICHAEL & HENRIETTA Oertwig SASSE
For Photos, see Michael and Henriette Sasse Family
Michael was the son of Friedrich Sasse, and was probably born in Nahausen. His mother was an Oertwig, perhaps Martha or perhaps Dorothee Louise. Henrietta and Michael were cousins. Because Nahausen church records are not available after 1835, we haven't been able to clearly identify the parents of either Michael or Henrietta.
They immigrated in 1868 on the Borussia. They lived first in Fayette County, Illinois, and then moved to Marshall County, South Dakota. Later they moved to Yellowstone County, Montana. After Henrietta died in Montana, Michael lived with daughter Hulda in California, and that's where he died.
