Research Notes (source comments, unreliable information)

Selma likely arrived aboard the ship "Stuttgart" from Bremen on 3 Jul 1895 in Baltimore, along with her brother Oscar (age 1) and sister Clara (age 14). Their ultimate destination was Good Thunder, Blue Earth County, Minnesota to meet their uncle. (New information from "History of Clay and Norman Counties" suggests this was probably their father, not uncle -- need to resolve this.) In Germany the children had lived in Lochoro, Pos(?). (ship's record, but see the census record for William Parnow)
