  • Notes 
    • Confirmation: 1883, Eckheim, Samara Province, Russia.

      Family arrived in New York City, New York May 18, 1922. Departed Bremen, Germany May 6, 1922 aboard the "SS Seydlitz". Family listed as: Georg Herdt, age 55; Jakob Herdt, age 22; Marie, age 19; Marie Margarethe, age 17; Katherina, age 10; and George, age 8. Note: Jakob Herdt, age 22 was crossed off the manifest with the notation "Failure to join". He did not sail with the ship for some unknown reason. Information found on the Ellis Island website by Cindy Herdt.

      It appears that the mother Mary Katherine Kuehn was not alive when this trip was made. Family story has her dying at Frankfurt am Main, Germany on her second trip to America.

      The family's first visit to the USA was in 1907 and they settled at Garden City, Finney County, Kansas. Mary Katherine Kuehn Herdt was unhappy with life in the USA and the family returned to Russia in 1911.

      Was in the Russian Army 1889 to 1893.
