Surnames: Lorf, Geimer, Spindler, Wurster, Eisenhart, Shain
I am searching for descendants of my Great Grandparents Balthasar Geimer and Maria Katharina Spindler who immigrated to Detroit in 1854 from Schifferstadt and Waldsee, Rheinland Phalz, Bavaria (Germany). They had six daughters born in Detroit 1855 to 1866. Rose Geimer married Christian Frederick Wurster and had 2 Wurster sons and a daughter who married Frederick Shain. My grandmother was Ida Barbara Geimer who married Gottlieb Lorf.
Please contact me:
