Hi I have a real mystery on my hands, I am trying to find the names of the parents of:
Maria Elizabeth (Duschen) Gottleib Meis
Born: About 1837 in Westfalen, Prussia
Married: About 1855 Bernhard Meis
Died: 29 June 1863 in Dubuque County, Iowa
Buried: St. Boniface Catholic Cemetery, New Vienna, Dubuque County, Iowa
Maria had two sons
William Henry Meis, born: 19 January 1856 in Iowa
Henry Ernst Meis, born: 12 July 1858 in Iowa
I do not know where or how the Gottleib name comes in, not sure if she was married once before she married Bernhard Meis or not?
I know it is not much to work with, but my great great grandmother (Clara) is a Ducheng/Duschen from Weiler-la-Tour, Luxembourg, and I am wondering if she might be related to Maria?
Any help would be appreciated!
Thank you, Keith Lawrencek79lawrence@gmail.com
