(as Grandpa Kenow might have told it)
I remember my Grandpa, Albert Kenow Sr., as a hardworking but very quiet man. In asking my dad and his brothers and sisters about Grandpa, no one remembered him telling about life in the ‘Old Country’, his trip to America or what his life was like in Minnesota when he first came here in the 1880’s. No one seems to know the whereabouts of a family Bible or of other documents that may have belonged to our ancestors. I have searched other sources of records and found information that I have been able to incorporate in the following account. Information from various sources is only as accurate as the records themselves. My account is based on stories I have read about other immigrants who did tell their stories and from the records of the church in Roggow. I am sure our ancestors would have had similar experiences and have used this in writing Grandpa’s Story. More information about our family is found in the Kenow Family History published earlier and on the web site: . This site also provides links to pictures and maps that may be downloaded and printed if you like.
