This is the information which I have researched so far on my Schwiesow - Schulz line.

m. 1848 Rolofshagen, Pommern

+Sophie Dorothea Friederike SCHULZ, b. 1821 Hohenbarnekow, Pommern, d. after 1880

1.   Carl Heinrich Wilhelm SCHWIESOW, b. 1847 Rolofshagen, Pommern, d. 1898 SD

m. 1876 Denison, IA

+Charlotte Louise WESSEL, b. 1857 St. Louis, MO, d. 1938 Chamberlain, SD

2.  Caroline Maria Friederike SCHWIESOW, b. 1849 Rolofshagen, Pommern, d. after 1880

3.  Johann Friedrich Martin SCHWIESOW, b. 1852 Rolofshagen, Pommern, d. 1924 Tacoma, WA

  +Anna C. SCHULTZ, b. 1862, m. 1881, d. 1927

4.  Frederick C. SCHWIESOW, b. 1855 Rolofshagen, Pommern, d. 1917 Midland, WA

  +Fredricka Margaret SCHULTZ, b. 1856, m. 1883, d. 1934 WA

5.  Maria SCHWIESOW, b. 1857 Rolofshagen, Pommern, d. 1896 SD

 +August STECKELBERG Jr, m. 1880 IA

6.  Wilhelm SCHWIESOW, b. circa 1864 Rolofshagen, Pommern, d. 1874, Jefferson Co., WI

In the church books of Rolofshagen, I have found the marriage record of Joachim and Sophie, [giving the names of their parents] and the baptism records of the oldest three children.

Joachim and Sophie [SCHULTZ] Schwiesow with their 6 children emigrated from Rolofshagen, Kreis Grimmen, Pommern, Preußen, [Pommernia, part of the Kingdom of Prussia] to the USA in 1867, leaving from Hamburg aboard the ship Palmerston.  They arrived at Castle Garden in New York on 26 Nov 1867.

By 1870, the family was living in Jefferson County, Wisconsin.  [1870 Federal Census for Wisconsin] 

Caroline Schwiesow, 21, from Prussia, was living as a domestic servant with the John D. and Mary Bullock family in Town of Farmington (P.O. Hebron), Jefferson Co., Wisconsin. This is most likely their daughter Caroline.

About 1875, they migrated to western Iowa.  In 1880 [from the Federal Census] Joachim [J. J.] and Sophie lived in Fairview, Shelby Co., Iowa.  John, Fred and Lena were living with them.  Carl was married to Louise Wessel, living near Denison, Crawford Co., Iowa, with two sons and a daughter.  Maria had just married August Steckelberg and was living in Shelby Twp., Shelby Co., Iowa

I have not found anything more what happened to Joachim, Sophie or their daughter Caroline after 1880. Family stories say that Joachim and Sophie came to Tacoma, Washington, with their sons, John and Fred, and their families, but there is no documentation.  I have been told that Caroline did marry but no additional information.  Wilhelm died in 1874 in Jefferson Co., Wisconsin.

Carl and Louise (Wessel) Schwiesow (married in Denison, Crawford Co., Iowa in 1876) and their first six children migrated to West Point Twp, Brule Co., South Dakota, about 1885, homesteading there. They had four more children in South Dakota. Both died in the area and are buried in the Norwegian Lutheran Cemetery near Pukwana, Brule Co., SD.  Carl was also known as Charles.

John and Anna (Schultz) Schwiesow were married in 1881 in Iowa. Their first three children were born there in 1882, 1884 and 1885. They migrated to Nebraska and had one daughter there in 1891. Then they migrated to Tacoma, Washington, and had their last child there in 1902.

Fred and Fredrika (Schultz) Schwiesow were married in 1883 in Iowa and had their first child in 1884 there. They migrated to Nebraska about 1885 and had three children there in 1886, 1888 and 1889. Then they migrated to Tacoma, Washington, about 1890 and had two more children there in 1892 and 1900.  

Maria and August Steckelberg were married in 1880 in Avoca, Iowa. They had some children there before also migrating to West Point Twp., Brule Co., South Dakota.
