I hope there's a connection somewhere (well, isn't there a connection with everyone from Friedrichstal?!?! Sometimes it makes my head "swim" to work on those records!)
My husband's grandmother was Christina Stefania/Steffanie Gorenflo, her mother was Steffanie Hornung whose 2nd husband was Ludwig Heinrich Barie. Per LDS records, his father was Peter Wilhelm Barie and mother was Christina Maurer. I had been told Steffanie and Louis had Pauline, Amelia and Otto but thru searching the LDS site, someone has Paulina, Emma, Otto Ludwig and Elise Luise. I have Charles Hesse as husband of Pauline. I would love to know if there's any way to obtain German army records, because Otto was killed during the war.
I would also appreciate knowing more about the 4 above mentioned children. I've been told Pauline came to America and even corresponded with one of my husband's aunts.
I'll be glad to share any information that might be helpful to you if I have it. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
