I am a descendant of Christopher Frederic Uthe who was born in 1811 and died during the Civil War in Warren, MS. I have read that there were four brothers who came to the America about the same time: Christopher Frederic Uthe who settled in Chicago, Johannn Christopher who settled in Iowa, Henry Martin who settled in Ohio, and a fourth brother of which I have no information but also supposedly settled in Ohio. Does anyone have any info on the fourth brother?
While researching New York Passenger lists, I found a Henry "Uhde" with his wife Eva Justina and children Wilhelm and Wilhelmine who arrived on the brig "Helene" on June 3, 1844. This seems to fit with known information on Henry Martin Uthe. Apparently traveling with them was the Christopher "Krebs" (sp) family. Henry's wife Eva maiden name is listed as "Kreps" in other records. I am wondering if anyone has researched if Eva is the daughter of Christopher, perhaps by a first wife. Both families are listed as being from "Wulfeis(?)edb". I've tried various letter combinations for the "?" but no luck. Does anyone know of this place as it would like provide an answer as to where the Uthe family originated in Germany?
