Notes:
* I have extensive information on John Henry BLASE and his two brothers who emigrated from Prussia in 1848. His two brothers were: Ernst F. BLASE, and Gerhard H. BLASE, both lived in St. Paul, Ramsey Co., MN in the mid 1800s. Ernst finally settled in North St. Paul, but Gerhard lived most of his life in St. Paul. John Henry BLASE stayed in Dakota County on the homestead (Section 32 of Dakota Co.) that was obtained from the Government in April 1855.
