Helping hands helping one another with our family history & genealogy research.
I am looking for Christian Schroeder.
He came to America from Germany in 1854 with his daughter Augusta. His wife had died in Germany.
They settled in Freeport Ill and Augusta, born May 5, 1835, married Friedrick Bearman 11 Mar 1856 and they lived in Mt. Morris.
I have no idea what happened to her father. 2 families have Christian Schroeder and Dorothea in thier tree but they are too young.
Augusta listed Christian Schroeder and Dorothea Sutters as her parents when she married Fredrick Lohafer in 1898.
Any ideas would be appreciated
Her death cert lists Christian Schroeder and also her marriage register to Fredrick lohafer lists Christian Schroeder and Dorothea Suthers. I can not find him anywhere. Not in census, death records, SS Death Index, passanger list nada. He got off the boat and apparently vanished.
