My Waidelich family are from the town Besenfeld Black Forrest, Germany and they came to America in September 1887 from the port LeHavne, France. They travelled by foot to reach the French port and the ship the travelled on was called La Bretagne. The father was named August Waidelich (b 10/16/1842 and he was married to Anna Maria Braun (b 11/28/1847). They brought with them their children named Rosina (b 2/24/1868), August (b 3/21/1872), Christina (b 6/25/1873), Louisa (b 7/25/1879), Wilhelmina (b 10/14/1880), Conrad (b 9/18/1881), Johann George (b 9/2/1882) Christian (b 6/3/1885). They came to New York City and settled in Newark, NJ. Some of the names changed when they lived in the US ex. Wilhelmina to Minnie and Conrad to Andrew, and Johann to George. Finally, I believe August Waidelich was originally from Schomberg, but met and married his wife in Besenfeld. If you have any information about the parents of August Waidelich and Anna Maria Braun I would appreciate it or anything you think might be useful to me. Thanks
