Family memories:The Meeting of August Rauf and Minnie Meyer
Posted by: Emily Lemming on Dec 23 2008 16:22
According to stories passed down by family members (in particular Claire Henry, youngest daughter of August and Minnie Rauf, and Phyllis Scherra, a grandduaghter), August and Minnie met on the ship as they traveled from Germany to the USA. However, according to the passenger lists of two different ships traveling from Bremen, Germany to Baltimore, Maryland, an August Rauf and a Minnie Meyer were passengers on different ships that arrived in Baltimore within 4 days of each other in early May, 1888.
