I believe my second great grandmother was Anna Sophia GAUS, and was likely born in Gifhorn, Hannover, Lower Saxony, Germany about 1826 give or take. Is anyone out there who can examine records from Gifhorn, Germany and tell me more about her family (parents, siblings, etc.) and her early life. Anna emigrated to the USA in about 1852 and I have some information about her life here, although I cannot find her death record. I have no definitive information about her life in Germany. She married Christoph Zimmerman in Germany before she emigrated and had three children in Germany. If you can add to my knowledge of this person I would be GREATLY appreciative.
