Request for Info from USA

I received a request for assistance from the USA last week.
A gentleman looking for information on his Grandmother Helen Trattles.

This sparked me into action, following a log absence from my Trattles research. Helen was the wife of Laban Trattles....who you will see I was attempting to look into back in 2012. I have now managed to link Laban back to a line in Staithes Yorkshire.

Request for Info 2018-08-08 Helen Trattles (nee Reimer)

Query in relation to Trattles family in USA

Helen Trattles was German speaking but was born in Nebraska. Her parents migrated to USA from Russia, though there is some confusion about their actual nationality. 

The following appears to be a record of Leroy Lebans marriage to Helen in 1932. Her maiden name is Reimer:

1900 USA Census
Helen Reimer - age 1 - Date of Birth (DoB) 5/9/1898 - Place of Birth (PoB) Nebraska -
Leabe Reimer - age 36 - DoB 1863 - PoB Russia
This census tells us that Leabe & Nicklaus (on previous page) have been married 12 years… so they married in 1888 - with it also telling us that Leabe arrived in the USA in 1874/9… so the marriage must have taken place in America. Though I cannot find any records on line.

1910 USA Census
Nick Reimer - age 45 - PoB Rus. German (this means, born Russia, German speaking)
Helen Reimer - age 11 - PoB Nebraska
Leabe Reimer - age 47 - PoB Ger. German

1920 USA Census
Nick Reimer - age 65 - PoB German - Language German
Helen Reimer - age 22 - PoB Nebraska
Liabe Reimer - age 67 - PoB Poland - Language Polish

Clearly between the census' there is a discrepancy in places of origin and Dates of Birth.
Could it have been just a misinterpretation at the time the census was taken?
Personally I believe this to be the case - and they should have been aged 55/54 respectively. So could that mean that the enumerator stated the incorrect places of birth? However it seems odd to have entered Poland instead of Germany?

1930 USA Census
Nick Reimer - age 65 - PoB Rus. German
Helen Reimer - age 31 - PoB Nebraska
It appears that Leabe has now died and that Nicholas has re-married.

1940 USA Census - Sacramento, California

I have located other family trees that have Helen's family recorded, and they have concluded that her mother Liebe was born in Germany in 1864 and has the parents: Friederich Proboll & Anna Navzitsky, but I cannot find any evidence to prove this.

In regards to the Hebron/Trattles family that emigrated to USA from England - there is a collection of many letters from Jane Hebron (nee Trattles) (your Great Great Great Grandmother) that she wrote back home to relatives in the UK and replies she received... about their new life in America...please look at:

Trattles ONS Update 2012 November

I have been busy - but just not writing in my blog ;0(
Further names/descendants have been adding to the database - There is currently 3760 individuals recorded.
2 people have enquired in the last months about potential links to the Trattles, which I have provided information about and I have been able to clarify a few more descendants.
I am daily tidying up the Trattles individuals, trying to find info about them and double checking sources recorded against them... still trying to link lines to each other... ONE BIG JIGSAW

ONS Update - Spreadsheet for BMDs (2012 June)

I have been Trattling the last couple of weeks - just not blogging.  I have now established a spreadsheet listing all entries that I find for Births, bapt, chr, marr - some deaths and burials.  Tis list includes the variants TRATTLE, TRATTEL, TRATTLES, TRATTELS, TRATLE, TRATLES, TRATTELL, TRATTELLS.  I was amazed at the number of TRATELs in the South in late 1700s and wonder are these linked somehow.  Some of them were merchant seamen.

The old parish records have given me much new info to work on.

Also just come across the Merchant Seamen index for 1845-1854 :
