I am looking for additional information on my great-great-great grandfather. The only information I have is from the 1880 census listing Michael, his wife Magdalena and children Caroline, Frank (my great grandfather), George, Mary and Lewis.
They were living in Indianapolis. Michael was about 57 (born around 1823), and according to both the 1880 census and family stories, Michael emigrated from Germany.
I have a handwritten note from my father that lists Michael's wife as Amelia Cartheusen (Cartheuser?), also being German born, as well as other references in family Bibles, etc listing Magdalene as his wife.
I have not been able to find any more information.
Anyone have a connection that might help?
