I am looking for any information about any of these families. My gr grmother was Mary Heim Funkhouser. She emigrated from Austria in Sept., 1882 and settled in W PA. Her father was John Heim, who may have already left for the states and she had sibs (Sophia) who remained in Tirol for a few more years.
Aboard the same ship (according to the story) was Mary's future husband Fred Funkhouser. Fred was originally a Heidocker who was adopted by a Mathias Funkhouser.( His mother's name was Mary) He also had a brother named Fred, a sister Anna, a sister Katherin and there may have been 2 sibs who were priests. I have old pictures of these people that were take in Tirol (Zell am Ziller by photographer Joh. Gredler) (Innsbruk by photographer August Wilcke and others. The pictures are about the size of a playing card and appear to have been popular in the late 1800's.
Mary was born 12/8/1875. John Heim (father) was born in 1844. His father's name was Joseph Heim. Other Heim children: Sufennia, Joseph, Fred, Tressie, John, Frank, Ralph, Charles. I believe the last 3 or 4 were born in the US possibly to John Heim and Elizabeth Korona Wade.
Any information, ideas, is greatly appreciated.
