Classification: Bible
Surnames: Berger, Getrost
I am searching for the ancestry of Michael Berger(b.1825 - d bef. 1880) and his wife Benedicte (...?...) Berger (21 April 1841 - 6 Jun 1905) and their daughter, Sophia Berger Getrost (16 January 1841 - 13 September 1901) Sophia was supposeddly their only child. Sophia married Adam Jacob Getrost (19 December 1843 - 9 March 1916) on 10 October 1865. The four emigrated to the USA, in November 1866, with baby Karl Johan Getrost, settling in Bellaire, Belmont County, OH. where all four died. In the 1870 Belmont County Ohio Census, Michael, Benedicte and Sophia all list Switzerland as their birthplace. Adam Getrost was born in Germany. I have Sophia's German language Bible with Adam's and Sophia's birth, marriage and emigration date, the names and birthdates of all twelve of their children (in German script). The birth and death dates of Benedicte (...?..)Berger and the death dates of Adam and Sophia are entered in English script. I would welcome any additional information!!! and will be glad to share the names and dates of Sophia Berger Getrost's children.
