"I am looking for a Schoen (sp) family that included an Elsie ... I think she was born either in 1844 or 1852, according to census and death records. ... She lived in WI, near Milwaukee, after coming to the US and marrying my Brandt/Brent relative. Thanks for any info you may have."

Do you have more specifics since posting in 2007? There may be more information found in local German newspapers given more specific names, spouse, date range. There are no entries for the surname Brent, but there are some Brant spellings; and about 500 occurrences of Brandt indexed so far. (Schoen and Schön are also indexed.)
