Charles Lickteig, my g grandfather, was born in Germany in 1840.
His Naturalization record, of 1861, in Louisville, mentions that he came to the United States in 1853, and entered through New Orleans, Louisiana. He was a native of Bavaria.
He was married to my g grandmother, Elizabeth or Louisa Kolb at St. Peter's Church in 1869. Her mother was listed as Christina Blaufuss Kolb; and her father as Adam Kolb, all of Saxony. Elizabeth Kolb Lickteig was born in 1849 and died in 1927.
Family Lore mentions that Charles Lickteig served in the Union Army during the Civil War.
He was a farmer, who sold some of his produce at the Louisville Farmer's Market.
He died in 1917, and is buried in St. Louis Cemetery.
I have a lot of information on the Lickteig family. My husbands line is through Hewelsepp, which is along the same lines. Charles' dad was Jacob John Lickteig who was a brother to Joseph "Hewelsepp" Lickteig. If you would like more info please feel free to e-mail me at the addy listed with this post.
My g grandfather, Charles Lickteig, sometimes known as Carl Lickteig had a brother Joseph.
Since there were several lines of Lickteigs, some with the same first names, I think my g grandfather's father was Franz Lickteig.
As far as I know the Lickteigs who migrated to Kentucky were a very small minority of the Lickteig family. Even though they were from the same region in Germany.
Even though there is a family connection with the midwest Lickteigs and the Minnesota Lickteigs, I don't know of a family name beginning with H. in the Kentucky group.
According to my records, Franz Joseph Lickteig b. 1810, married Anna Marie Wilhelm b. 1813, in Germany.
I have Charles George Lickteig b. 12 Feb 1840 in Donsieders, Pfalz, Bayern, Germany & d. 25 Aug 1972 in Louisville, Jefferson Co, KY. He married Elizabeth Kalb abt 1870 she was b. abt 1849 in Saxony, Germany & d. 8 Sep 1927 in Ky.. They had 8 children, all born in Jefferson Co, KY. Charles' dad was Jacob John Lickteig b. 11 Nov 1810 in Donsieders, Pfalz, Bayern, Germany & d. 24 Nov 1879 in Louisville, Jefferson Co, KY. He married Anna Maria Wilhelm on 13 May 1833 in Clausen, Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany. She was b. 1813 in Germany & d. 14 Jun 1904 in IA. They had 11 children. Jacob John Lickteig's dad was Johann George Lickteig. I go back to the Lickteig (original spelling Leckdeich) who was born in 1638 in Germany.
Dear Anita Lickteig
All of our Lickteig Genealogy is based on Father Adrian D. Lickteig's work. I looked up one of his old letters to my mother dated March of 1959.
From Fr. Adrian D. Lickteig O. Carm of 746 Miami St. in Leavenworth, Kansas. This was even before zip codes, and the total postage was 4 cents.
In this communication, he was interested in documenting the priests and Religious that were descendants of the Lickteig family.
He lists 52 in the United States, and 3 in Germany.
He was interested in adding my mother's brothers and sisters, and their families. As often happens this communication died on the back burner. But I did hang onto it.
He ends his letter by saying:
The stem of the Lickteig tree goes back to a John Lickteig 1740 - 1814. He lived in Burgalben, his five children make up the following five lines or family branches of descendants:
1. John, the younger 1766-1846 Father of Burgalben Line 1
2. Jacob, the tall 1777-1846 Fatjer pf Burgalben Line 11
3. Maria Anna 1781-1860 Mother of Landstuhl Line 1
4. John George 1784-1864 Father of Donsieders Line 1
5. Franz Joseph 1788-1861 Father of Donsieders Line 11
#32 on the lists of Priests and Religious is my mother's first cousin. Namely:
Bernard Henry Hartlage (1913) Rev. Bernard H., Secular from Louisville, Ky. Mother: Elizabeth Hartlage nee Lickteig (1871-1916) Don. L. 1, Son of Carl (1840 - 1917)
Father Adrian did a monumental work, and I learned about 10 or 15 years ago that it was in the repository at the church of Latter Day Saints, and can be ordered on microfiche. Which I did.
Father Adrian's work has been taken up by Mr. Sexton and Pat Hartlage.
One of my findings, within the past year or so, has to do with when my g grandfather Charles who came to the United States, and then to Kentucky.
I have found a record of his Naturalization, that indicateds he came to the United States through New Orleans.
I am told that this conflicts with Fr. Adrian's account.
He also lists my Grandfather as Carl Omer, who married my Grandmother Lena or Magdalena Lickteig. My grandfather's name was John Thomas Omer.
Do you know of anyone who visited in Germany in the Lickteigs area of origin?
Charles Lickteig married Elizabeth Kolb in 1869.
Thank you, I also have been referring to the works of Fr. Adrian and now Gus Sexton and Pat Hartlage. I had not known any one personally from your line to verify or prove otherwise. I am so glad that I can now correct my files on your side. My husband had 2 uncles in the priesthood, Fr. Dominic and Father Dion, He also had 2 aunts that were nuns, Sister Anastasia and Sister Florenitine. As well as lots of cousins, Fr. Tony (Anthony), Fr. Bernard Lickteig, Sister M. Fluerine, etc. Would love to get more on your family line.
I don't remember if we have been in touch before. I would be happy to send you a descendancy narrative for Charles Lickteig and Elizabeth Kolb. Not all of the dates are complete and if you have any information that might fill in I sure would appreciate it.
Line goes back as far as John Jacob Lickteig in 1702. If you want that much let me know.
