Fenske family in New Ulm/St. James, MN 1920s

Surnames: Fenske, Froehling, Willner
Looking for information about the Gottlieb Fenske family of Iowa and Minnesota.

Gottlieb Fenske: b. 11 Sep 1871, West Prussia
Immigrated with his brother in 1880 to Iowa
m. Marie Willner 27 Mar 1894 in Mankato, MN
Farm in Kossuth Co., Iowa - 1905-1920 censuses
1923 - moved to New Ulm, MN
1925 - moved to St. James, MN
Died 10 Jan 1926, St James, Watonwan Co, MN

They had 6 sons and 4 daughters listed in Gottlieb's obituary (1926):
Kurt (New Ulm)
Gustav "Gus" (Chicago)
Arthur (Chicago)
William (Saganaw, MI)
Hugo (St James)
Irwin (St James)
Mrs. Arthur Koritzke (Chicago)
Mrs. Ernst Vogelpohl (New Ulm)
Margaret (St James)
Frieda (St James)

Brothers:
August Fenske (Raymond, MN)
John Fenske (Minneapolis)

I believe there may be a connection between this family and the Harm & Anna Froehling family of St. James, MN.
