(Given the small size of Temmels, and the fact that both families were Catholic, it is likely that the Kohn brothers had been acquainted with the Mich family prior to their emigration.)


In Jan 1883, when Hubert was 24 and Anna was 18, the couple married at St. John's Catholic Church in Rochester, Minnesota. The photo is presumed to be their wedding picture.   They lived in Hyde Park, Wabasha County, Minnesota where they raised ten children.   Matthias and Bernard Kohn  also settled in the area and raised large families.

Hubert and Anna and other family members are buried at the cemetery of the former St Clements Catholic Church in Hammond, Minnesota. 

Anna's father Heinrich, who died in 1888, is also buried in the same cemetery.  It is probable that Anna's mother Maria (Wegener) Mich is also buried there as she died in Hammond in 1897.

Grinolds Family

Hubert came later in 1877 at age 19 with his older brother Matthias Kohn, then aged 28. Hubert and Matthias traveled in steerage on the S.S Weser from Bremen, Germany to New York. Their younger brother Bernard, joined them in Minnesota in 1880.

Hubert Kohn and Anna Mich came separately to the United States although both were from the same small town of Temmels, Germany. 


Anna was only five years old in 1870, when she came with her parents (Heinrich and Maria) and six siblings (Matthias, Maria, Margaret, Elizabeth, John and Nicolaus) on the SS Java from Liverpool to New York.
