I am trying to put together my son-in-law's family tree for a Christmas present. His ggg-grandfather was Anton Egle. Here is what I have:
Anton EGLE, b. abt. 1830, Wurttemberg, Germany, married (abt. 1856) Anna Maria FRANK, b. Dec 1833, Wurttemberg, Germany. Anton arrived in the New York on 5 May 1854 on the ship, Diadem. Traveling with him was "Cajetan" EGLE. I am unable to find anyone by the name Cajetan anywhere in the U.S.!!!
Anna arrived in 1853 but I have not found her ship yet.
Anton and Anna first settled in Lucas County Ohio where three of their children were born. They moved to Monroe, Monroe County, Michigan where they remained until their deaths. They had 14 Children, but I could only find the following
Mary A, b. Feb 1857 - OH
William H, b. abt. 1858 - OH
George, b. 10 Jun 1860 - OH
Elizabeth, b. abt. 1862 - MI
John, b. Oct 1863 - MI
Frank, b. abt. 1866 - MI
Ida, b. abt. 1868 - MI
Rose M, b. 9 Jun 1869 - MI
Anton H, b. Jul 1870 - MI
Louise Therese, b. 9 Mar 1871 - MI
Susan, b. 18 May 1879 - MI
Edward J, b. Jul 1881 - MI
In the 1900 Census, Anna states she had 14 children but only 11 were living.
Does the name "Cajetan" sound familiar? Could it be German and if so, what would be the American name?
Any help would be appreciated.
