Looking for the Zutter/Sutter Family of Holland or Germany
My Sutter's came from either Hannover, Germany or the Netherlands. As far as I know the family ultimately settled in Wisconsin. I do not know where they might have landed, but I'm guessing either California or New York would be possibilities. They came to the United States in
John Zutter was born in 1836 in Holland or Germany, married before 1870 to a lady who's name is Jacoba or Jacoby, and died in 1921. He nad his wife had at least 6 children, their oldest, Peter, having been born in 1870 in whichever country (Holland according to the 1880 USA census). The rest of the children, Heinrich (1871), Jane (1874), Adriana (1875), Cornelia "Nellie" (1878)*, and Jacob (1879) were born in Dubuque, Iowa.
*Nellie Sutter married Henry John Soule(i)n, also of Holland. They had two children, Ruth Nellie Soulen and Roger John Henry Soulen. Both married and had children who are still living. Both Nellie Soulen Jensen (married Clair Luther Jensen**) and Roger "Uncle Bud" Soulen (married Lousie Henrietta Howe)have since returned to their eternal homes.
** See my Jensen Journal for more on this family.
I have lots of research on the Sutter/Soulin families but am always looking for additional information to confirm my findings. In addition, I am searching for their European roots and to see how far back I can travel.
