My Grandmother was Estella Boehm b. 1897 and her father was Joseph C. Boehm, grandfather Lorenz Boehm. Estella WAS FROM Chicago Joseph b.was born in St. Louis. The census says that Lorenz b. abt 1830was born in Germany - Bavaria. He was married to Elizabeth Nuemerich b. abt. 1845 who was born in Hessie Damstadt, Germany. Looks like she was born in the same place as your ancestor. She and Lorenz were married in the US.
