I seem to have such a dead end in my geneological research....no name
for the Germanic/possible also Russian origins. I feel I have to just
keep posting in Germanic research areas until something clicks. This
is all I have:
Schwarz family or Schwartz or formerly longer?
Andrew or (Andrea) m. Carolina Magdelina Steiner (Stirn or Weiny)
Must have arrived US or at least in Iowa 1860's cuz not on earlier
Mike, Wilhelmina Augustina, George (1868-1874) Magdelina (1869)
Catherina Maria and Ludovica Magdelina (1871, twins), and John Peter
Andrew remarried Catherine Steiner (Katharina Sweeny?)
Lidy (Caroline) Rosina (1875) my grandmother
William and Anna Barbara
(unsure if related: cuz Father is listed as Frederick Schwartz and
Katharina Seeny..) Jacob (1878)
Dated records from Catholic Church in Lansing Iowa, originally in
Latin, translated. Allamakee county Iowa.
I know only that there are Germanic origins, Russian. Andrew was
supposedly in the German servide and died in it.so must have returned
to Germany? No documentation other than these baptismal records and a
gravestone for George.
Not listed in 1850 or 1860 Allamakee county census.
Later the family (after death of father?) must have relocated to
Minneapolis MN, that is where my grandmother married her husband
George Waters. And I met her sisters Mary and Louise (twins
americanized) and Barb and Lena as a child.
I am from Nashville TN. Originally raised in Mpls. MN.
