Anton Splieth (1846-?) Immigrant from Germany (b. 1846, New Tassalge, Konigsberg, Preussen (now Germany) - d. after 1920, Jersey City, Hudson County, New Jersey, USA) Anton is the son of Andreas Splieth aka Andrew Splieth and Regine Mede aka Rosina Mede. Anton emigrated to the US around 1875 and was naturalized in 1881 according to the 1920 US Census. Anton married Catharine Samsel (1856-before1920) aka Katie Sumser on April 30, 1876 in Manhattan in New York City. Together they had the following children: Charles Splieth (1877-?) who was born in Manhattan and worked in a laundry in 1920; Mathilda Splieth (1879-1910) who was born in Manhattan and married a Griffin and then died in childbirth; John J. Splieth (1880-?) who married Annie X (1884-?) and worked as an ironworker in construction in Manhattan in 1930; Anna Elizabeth Splieth (1882-1964) who never married and worked as an overseer at a factory in 1920; Elizabeth Splieth (1889-1978) who never married and also worked as an overseer at a factory in 1920 and was a head file clerk at a life insurance company in 1930; Katherine Splieth (1893-?); Andrew Ameroy Splieth I (1894-1978) who served as a private in World War I in the 310th Infantry and worked at a newspaper in 1920; and Walter A. Splieth (1896-?) who was born in New Jersey and served as a baker in World War I in the 309th Field Battery, and was a newspaper pressman in 1930. Anton appears in the 1880 US Census in Manhattan indexed as "Anton Spleidt". He is working as a longshoreman and his mother is living with him. She is listed as "Rosina". He is indexed in the 1920 US Census as "Auston Splieth". He lived at 72 Virginia Avenue from at least 1918-1920 and was working for a steamship company in 1920. He died between 1920 and 1930 and is most likely buried in Hudson County.
