Research that we received from Germany in 1979 has his name as being Amschler Johann Georg, 3rd legitimate son, born 4.6.1824 in Menchau, christened on 10.6.1824. He was the son of Amschler Andreas, shepherd in Upper and Nether-Menchau, and of Anna nee Held from Thurnau (the last-mentioned died on 27.3.1832, Aged 47 years, in Berndorf).
Johann Georg Amschler emigrated in Sept. 1850 to St. Louis, North America. This is noted in the church records.
The translation of his bible pages that I have gave his name as John George Amschler from Memhau, Landgericht Thurnau,Kingdom of Baiern, of Upperfranken was married July 10, 1853 to Anna Lang, bor in Wissenfels, Landgericht holfeld, Kingdom Baiern in Upperfrank, born April 28, 1834.
Our John Georg was forn June 4, 1824 in Memhau,Landgericht Thurnau, Kingdom Baiern Upperfrank.
Our John Georg raised his family in the Lutheran Faith. Several of his children and their families are still members of the Lutheran Faith. However, there was one son and one daughter that married Catholics and in later years both of them joined the Catholic Church.
I have never been able to find out if our John Georg has siblings, if there was any and who they where. Does this information fit with anything in your's mother family? My husband is the one with the surname of AMSCHLER.
I just found your post as I have not been out here for a few weeks. I like to hear from you again.
