    Land 01 Apr 1862  Warsaw Township, Goodhue, MN Find all individuals with events at this location  [8
    • George and his brother Edward each acquire land that is registered on April 1, 1862. Another researcher notes that by 1877 a plat map shows the land owned by someone else.

    • Company I, Minnesota 1st Heavy Artillery Regiment, enlisted 13 Feb. 1865, mustered out 27 Sep 1865.
    Cen-Head 01 Jun 1865  [11
    • 1865 State census at Warsaw Township, Goodhue, MN shows George Brokman (indexed as George Berkman); Lelista, William, Charles and Fremont Frits. This census gives only gender, no age or birthplace. By 1865 I would expect to find Frances and/or Eliza with the family and given that George is supposedly born this month, a wife. Therefore the person listed as Lelista must be a wife, although it does not fit either of the first names other researchers have provided. Frances appeared in the 1860 census and then never again so perhaps she has died. There is an Eliza Brockman enumerated with another family (D. McNeil) in Lillian, Goodhue, MN.
