Corky, I do not have any information on C.A.Emile Gantert, but if I come across the name I will definitley contact you. My Gantert Family is originally from Germany, settling in La Crosse, WI and then filtering out from there. If you have any information, Id love to read it! Thanks, Kristen

Kristin,
Thank you for the reply. I'm sure if my family came from Germany too. When is the question. Do you find a Carolus Gantert in you family tree any where?
I am guessing that my Gr. Grandfather had to have some Aunts and Uncles some where.
I live in WI. now. Ever heard of Antigo?
Thanks for the help, Corky

Corky, I have found much more information. My great,great,great,great grandfather and grandmother were Michael and Magdelene (Hoehr or Hoche) Gantert. They had five children Stephen Henry (my ggg grandfather)Agatha (Groman), Mrs. Frank Madar, Mary (Peters) and Philiphine Gantert. All of which immigrated from Baden, Germany. Stephen Henry immigrated in 1857 into New YOrk ( I have immigration Papers) and it is believed he helped in the immigration of his sisters to the USA. All of his sisters lived and died in Wisconsin. Stephen married Sophia Wagner in 1861 in LaCrosse, WI and they had 9 children: Louise, Mary, Henry, Sophia, Josephine, George, Frank, Helen and Carl. I have dates on all of Stephens siblings plus the complete lineage of Henry Gantert up to me. If this helps, great, let me know.

Hi Kristin,
Well, you have been busy. From what you sent me, there is a possiblity that Carl could be my GrGr.Granpa.
Carl should have married Elizabeth Kurrus.
They had 2 kids Agatha Hulda Gantert and Carl Anton Emile Gantert. Does this sound familiar?
This has been the best info that we have gotten from anyone.
I'll be waiting for your reply, Thanks again, Corky

Hi. My great-grandmother was Wilhemina Gantert
from St. Louis Mo. Her siblings were: Anton, Therese,
Margaret, Magdalene, Matilda, Joseph and William.
Their parents were: Martin Gantert and Agnes Mulanphy.
Martin was a private in the Civil War (in Mo.) and lost
his life in the war (Lyons Massacre). two of his sons were also killed in
the civil war. Neither Martin nor Agnes were originally from St. Louis. After
Martin was killed in the war, Agnes and the kids resided at
1243 S. Broadway, St. Louis Mo. If this helps
let me know and if you have any other info please let me know.
Thanks

Dear Marcie,
I was intrigued by your message. My Grandmother was
Tula (Gantert) Clifford, she was named Wilhemina at birth but changed it when she was young.
I was wondering to myself if she may have been named after a relative.
My Gr. Grandfather was Carl Anton Emile Gantert. When I saw the "Anton", once again I wondered,
if the name was given to him after an uncle or some relative. (They loved to do that in those
days!) Do you have any more info on Anton? I have very little info to go on due to my Grandmother
being rather tight lipped about the Ganterts. We have been trying to find any thing and trying
to piece things together.
Please write back if anything sounds familiar.
Thanks for the info! Corky

Dear Corky,
Thanks for the reply. Here is everything I know
about my Gantert relatives:
my great-great-grandfather was Martin Gantert
who was born about 1815 and was in the St. Louis
census. He was married to Agnes Mulanphy. They
had 8 children:
Anton - born 1846
Theresa - born 1848
Margaret - born 11/24/1850
Magdalene - born 9/26/1853
Matilde - born 9/1/1855
Joseph - born 4/18/1857
Wilhemina - born 3/8/1859 (aka Wilhelmina)
William Herman- born 7/18/1861

Papers from service in 1864 show Martin Gantert was
a private in the army in Mo. He lost his life
in the Civil war (he was killed in the barracks(?))
His 2 sons also lost their lives in the war and
are supposedly buried in Jefferson Barracks

Wilhemina was my great-grandmother and one of her
sisters lived in O'Fallon Ill. She married my
great-grandfather John J. Readey in St. Louis, Mo.

Apparently the Gantert family was originally
from Ill. but moved to Mo. when they were given
a land grant or inheritance when Martin died.

We also have some conflicting documents that
list Agnes' children as Margaretha (instead of
Margaret) who was married to artin Kroen,
Magdelena (instead of Magdelene) who was married
to John Tenbusch, Anton and John Roos (which
makes us think she was married previously),
Matilda and Wilhelmina Gantert.

That is all we know right know. I hope it helps.
I will keep you posted if we find out anymore.
Thanks
Marcie
