A couple dead ends, so to speak

+1 vote
I've run into a couple dead ends, which might be related to Surame spelling. One of those is

Ernst Ludwig Glasnapp (Glasenapp, Glasnap, Glassnaub or possible GlaBnapp). I can't seem to find much on him other than the 1860 and 1870 US Census. The 1860 census spelling was way off, but the family members all matched up. He's from Poland (really Pomerania/Prussia) where there are a few Glasenapp's or Glasnap's. Anybody have any good database sites for that area? Thanks

It looks like Ludwig arrived at the 'Port of Bufflalo' in May, 1854. Source: "Wisconsin, County Naturalization Records, 1807-1992", database with images, FamilySearch (https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:8CLJ-FPMM : 25 August 2020), Ludwig Glassmab or Glasenal, 1856.    IMAGE:  https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QSQ-G93Z-8JFJ?i=113&cc=2046887&personaUrl=%2Fark%3A%2F61903%2F1%3A1%3A8CLJ-FPMM

This appears to be Gustine (Widow) and the children in Wisconsin in 1880 (again locations are off)  which is not uncommon when people had strong native accents)
