Joachim Prigge - 1000 Emigrants To America From The District Of Harsefeld

This post is pretty far off my normal subject matter, as in not related to me. Instead, Joachim Prigge (1823-1910), is connected to the Brassfield surname by his 3rd great grandson marrying a Brassfield. According to this source, Joachim and his family arrived in New York 7 May 1868 on the steam ship Allemannia. They settled in Utica township, Winona County, Minnesota before 1880. His son Johann Nicolaus Prigge (1858-1943) had a daughter named Mathilda Prigge (1889-1964). She married Hugo Dorn (1885-1972). Their daughter Meta Dorn (1915-1994) married Herbert G. Gensmer (1914-2003). Their daughter, then had a son that married a Brassfield.

Also, there are many members of that family buried in the cemetery at Silo Immanuel Lutheran Church (LCMS) north of Lewiston, MN. Founded in 1862, Immanuel Lutheran must have been the home church for that group of German immigrants.
