We are researching the FIGGE family. They immigrated to Schyler County in 1851 from Hessendarmstadt, Germany.
Christian Figge (known as C.) md Katherine Heinze in Germany and had 5 children:
1. Catherine (b 1834 in Germany), md Henry Wilhelm in MO and settled in Lewis Co., MO.
2. Christian (b 1838 in Germany), md Mary Francis Cowgill in Schyler Co, and settled in Lancaster.
3. Mary (b 1841 in Germany), md William Smith in Schyler Co, and settled there.
4. John Henry (b 1845 in Germany), md Elsie Irene Baker in Schyler Co. and settled on his fathers farm. They lived there until 1902, when they moved to Washington (state). This is our direct line.
5. Elizabeth (b 1855 in Schyler Co.), md John Figge (son of William Figge - no relation) in Schyler Co, and had a farm there.
We would appreciate any information regarding this family.
