Quincy, Illinois, Immigrants from Munsterland, Westphalia, Germany: Volume II


This series consists of two complementary volumes. The second volume of this work contains biographical sketches of the 1,456 known immigrants who came to Quincy from Munsterland. It includes individuals who were either born in or immigrated from Munsterland to Quincy; a few individuals not born in the district of Munsterland; and a handful of immigrants who lived in nearby communities, such as LaGrange, Missouri, or Brown County, Illinois.

Entries are numbered and arranged alphabetically by surname. Indices to names and places complete this volume. The first volume deals with the life of the emigrants in Germany, their voyage to America, and their life in Quincy, Illinois. It offers a detailed account of the history of Quincy from the unique perspective of a Munsterland immigrant. Numbers following names in Volume I refer to their enumeration in the biographical section of the work in Volume II.
