Christina (Rann) (Mohr) (Selken) Bahde 1864-1943

Ok, Here is the problem, she was married to:
Husband #1: John Mohr died in 1914 at Remsen;
Husband #2: Will Selken in 1935 he died;
Husband #3: Gus Bahde who survived her but died in 1947.
Husband #4: Peter Moeller born a b.1860 Husum, Germany found by Kerstin.

I tried putting all of those names in her last name but then it would not allow searches for any of the last names so, I put her last married name and connected her with her three husbands. Hope that helps. I'm open for suggestions.


Christina Bahde, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jess Rann, was born August 4, 1864, in Schleswig, Germany. In infancy she was baptized and later was confirmed.

In 1862 [1882] she moved with her father and brother to America. She was united in marriage to John Mohr in Lucerne, Iowa, in 1883. They adopted one child, Gustav Mohr.
