I am reseraching two Hochadel families who migrated from the Trippstadt and Elmstein towns of the Rhien-Pflaz region of Germany to the Swormiville/ Williamsvile, Erie County, New York area. The migrations apparently all occured around 1852. My Hochadels married into the Daumen clans.
Specifically I am interested in the following folks:
Magdalena Hochadel (may have also been called Margaretha) who married John Jacob Daumen. She died Aug 18, 1868 in Swormville, Erie County, New York. Who were her parents? When was she born? They had a son John Daumen who married, as luck would have it, Elizabeth Hochadel (1833 - 1919).
Elizabeth's parents were Martin Johann Hochadel and Anna Maria "Mary" Fiecht (born between 1799 - 1803 and died in Erie County before 1880). When was Martin Hochadel born? Whe and where did he die? How about his wife Mary?
There were lots of Hochadels and Fiechts in Erie County, many with the same given names, I am having much trouble sorting them out.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
