My wife's grandfather, Theodore Jacob Freitag, came from Bavaria to Baltimore around 1870 and married Dorothea Ziemer. Her family lived on Lee Street, Baltimore and that is where Theodore and Dorothea settled, although they subsequently moved about six times in the downtown area of Baltimore. He was a tailor.
There was also a man named William Freitag, a tailor, who lived on the same street and is listed on the 1860 census. I do not know if he was related to Theodore but I strongly believe it to be so. William had a wife named Christina and three children. They do not appear on any subsequent Baltimore census so they must have moved west.
Theodore and Dorothea had six children, viz., Kate, Emma. Anna Mamie, William (died as infant), Charles, and my wife's father, William Frederick.
There was also anotlher Freitag family in Baltimore around the same time many of whom are buried in the Louden Park Cemetery, Baltimore. Also, some of them moved to Wisconsin. From the cemetery records I have names Carl, Charles, Katherine, Martha. Charles and Martha appear to be the parents. He born 1876 and died 1930. She born 1878 and died 1926. In 1954 a Miss Elsie M. Freitag contacted the cemetery saying "My parents passed away more tha 24 years and my brother, Wm. H. Freitag, also deceased, ...". None of the above may be important to you but, you never know. Many Germans, landing in Baltimore during the late 1800s,
eventually travelled west to Frederick, MD and beyond to Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Don Timmons
