Anna Sophia Bartels, known as "Sophie", was born 30 Mar 1837 at #2 Hülshagen (7 miles from Meerbeck) in the Schaumburg district of Niedersachsen (Lower Saxony),Germany. She was the 4th of 6 children born to Tönnies Heinrich and Engel Marie Eleonore (Böse). On 14 Jan 1855 she married her cousin, Friederich Christian "Fred" Bartels at the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Meerbeck, Schaumburg-Lippe, Germany. (The church was located directly across the street south from #9 Meerbeck, Fred's home.) To this union were born 11 children. Two infant sons died in Germany. The decision was made to emigrate to the United States, and thus they sold their property and sailed with their six children on the steamship "Hermann", arriving in New York City on 3 May 1869. They immediately went by train to the German colony in Beecher, Will county, Illinois where relatives welcomed them. Here, three more children were born; their son Johann Heinrich August was born 30 Nov 1875 and died there on 5 Apr 1878. Friends and relatives had relocated to Saline county, Nebraska south of the village of Tobias, and they followed by train to Friend, Nebraska and then by wagon in November of 1878. They were successful in their life there, and not only purchased other properties, but were founding members of the Zion Lutheran church, located next to Old Zion cemetery. After her husband died, Sophia lived with her son John until her death. Many of her descendants still live in the Tobias area.
