Karch/Paltzman from Dobsina, Hungary (now Slovakia)

I have a Laurentes Burger who came from Vienna as a Bell Caster. He and his wife Maria Kohler had three children that I'm aware of but I only know the one daughter's name. Her name was Juditha Burger and she was born in 1832 in Dobsina, Hungary. She married Andreas Paltzman who also was born in Dobsina in 1832. His parents were Samuel Paltzman and Maria Karch.

They had three children as well. Eszter, Samuel, and another daughter who's name I haven't located yet...but soon!

Samuel died a single man in Dobsina. Eszter married Jacob Ruby and they had several children. Eszter came to America with her children after her husband died.

Her daughter, Elisabeth Ruby, was my Great-Grandmother. She married Joseph McKenna and they had three children before succumbing to breast cancer in the prime of her life.
Stansbury (my Grandpa), Elizabeth, and Arden (still living) were her legacy.

Any help on this family would be wonderful.

I don't know exactly where the Paltzman family came from but know it was from Germany. In the 1700's they came to Dobsina. Two brothers, Samuel and Leopold Paltzman, came to Dobsina as businessmen. They brought in a high temperature furnace to process the ore brought down from the mines.
