I am looking for anyone who may be researching or has researched the lineage my 2nd great grand parents:
Friedrich Gottlob Schmidt b. c 1796/7 in Frankenhausen, Schwarzburg Rudolstadt and his wife Wilhelmine Christiane Ullrich, b. ca 1798 in the same location. I believe they married sometime around 1829 in that area.
They immigrated to the United State through Indian Point on the Brig Elisa Charlotte
Family #: 3402 in the Galveston Immigration Database -
Ship: ELISA & CHAR. Date: 10/20/1846 Destination:
Port of Departure: BREMEN Date Departed: 03/26/1846
Family Last Name: SCHMIDT Origin: FRANKENHAUSEN
Name Age Sex Occupation
1 GOTTLEB F. 0 M na
2 CHRISTINA 0 F na
They settled in Texas and died sometime after 1870 in Comal County, Texas.
If anyone has any suggestions to further my research on this line record wise I certainly would appreciate any and all advice. I am not familiar with what is available around Frankenhausen that might be able to help me take this family back another generation of two.
Thanks for any and all help,
