My great grandparents were Charlie and Frances Ellerbrock from Glandorf, Ohio. I would like to find out more about Charlie's parents. My great grandparents and my great great grandparents I believe are buried in st. John cemetery in Glandorf.

Quick check: Yeah it looks like they emigrated from Glandorf, Hanover, Germany to Glandorf, Ohio. I stumbled across this book as well.

Welcome to WikiTree! I was able to find a Ellerbrock from Glandorf here on the site, though I'm not sure if this is one of the people you are referring to because its Glandorf, Germany and the place in Ohio is Ottawa. Maybe they named a new place in Ohio after their old town in Germany?
