Descendants of Wilhelm Friedrich Rosenow


Wilhelm Friedrich Rosenow and his wife, Albertine Ernestine Marquart, were born in Prussia in the early-1800’s. They and their son and daughter emigrated to America and settled in Adrian Township, Monroe County. The children married into the Westpfahl and Schicht families.

It is possible that Wilhelm was a brother of Ernst Rosenow and Michael Rosenow, who were also born in Prussia. Ernst and his wife and daughter emigrated to Monroe County in 1892. Michael and his wife, Dorothea Sophia Ratzlaff, were the parents of four sons who eventually emigrated to Monroe County.

Wilhelm may also have been related to (Unknown) Rosenow, who was born in Prussia in the mid-1800’s and was the father of Anna Louise Marie Rosenow; of Wilhelm Rosenow, Sr., who was born in about 1851, and was married to Wilhelmine Bergmann; and of Wilhelm Rosenow, who was born in 1841 in Prussia and was married to Christina Birkholz.
