I have been researching the Kresser family in America for some time and have been able to take the line as far as Anton Kresser whose death certificate shows that he was born on 15 Nov 1850 in Filakink, Tyrol, Austria. I have no information on parents. It appears that Anton Kresser emigrated to America in about 1876 according to the 1900 census, however I have yet to find an immigration record.
Anton married Mary Agatha Leber (or LaBar) but I have no it determined if it was in Austria or somewhere else...she appears to have been born in Germany.
I am desperate for information!!! I do not speak German and that hinders my ability to research...but I am hoping someone here can help me!!!
Thank you very much!!
