I am related to Sarah Ellen (Wheat) Brandt and i believe her husband is Rudolph Brandt i have searched many records but i cannot find an exact place of origin for him. Also i was wondering if there were any others in relation to him from that era, possibly that moved to Iowa besides his daughter, great grandmother Bertha (Brandt) Payne. If any information is known about the Brandt family related to the people above please post it as a public message or a comment on Sarah's (above) page
please. I would very much appreciate it.
Oops...August's father was also an August.

Well I am speculating we may be, there were a number of Brandts in MO before the Civil War I can't help but wondering if they were related. My ggg grandmother,Wilhelmina K., was born in Prussia and married August Brand(t), born 1828 in Detmold, Prussia, before emigrating to the US in 1857, they settled in MO. His immigration papers say he was a bricklayer. They were joined by Wilhelm Knierim, wife Wilhelmina, and his mother, Fiederike, who emigrated in 1862 from Waldeck, arriving in Baltimore with the destination of St. Louis, or thereabouts. If Wilhelm came over and settled by family I wonder if the Brands also met up with Brandts or Knierims that had preceded them. Both families left MO in 1866 and settled in Calhoun County, IA on farms almost adjacent to one another. They are enumerated in the 1870 & 80 censuses only a few farms apart. Yet I have nothing concrete to prove my Wilhelmina, b.1834, and Wilhelm, b. 1839, were siblings! Fiederike, Wilhelm and most all their descendants are in Trinity Lutheran Cemetery, and my Wilhelmina is buried in Greenfield Cemetery with the Brands a few miles away.
August's father was supposedly a stonemason and served in Napoleon's army.
Does any of this dovetail into your family history?
Hi, Are you related to the Brandts you have on this site that are buried in MO? We might have common lines. Please let me know- Kent Gebhard
