Harm and Gesine Kettwich (travelling 1924 and 1928)

Harm and his brother Heere crossed the Atlantic Ocean for the first time in September 1924 on the steamer “Stuttgart” from Bremen to New York. Both were single and wanted to join their cousin Frank E. Kettwich in Titonka, Iowa. It seems that Harm later returned to Ostfriesland, Germany to marry.
