Hello,
I found out that my great grandfather Alexander Eberhardt had 20 siblings and that someone of them emigrated from Russia to the US but I never found one.
I know that they were Catholics.
I would appreciate if someone would answer.

Try looking for the family name in or around St. Mary's KS. My great grandmother's maiden name is Eberhardt but I do not know what the first name was. There were Eberhardts living in St. Marys, Pottawatomie, KS. According to a census (sorry, I cannot remember which one) they lived next door to my grandmother's brother Michael Martel & his family. Most of the people in St. Marys were Volga River Germans (Germans whose families went to Russia under Catherine the great to farm in the Volga River valley.

The Germans who settled there were primarily Catholic from Russia. This could be the area to look.

Good luck & best wishes!

The car had not been used all winter and it took a great deal of force to loosen it. The rest of the section gang saw the engine coming at such a high speed in order to jar the floor loose, and all had time to jump but Mr. Eavenhardt. The shock knocked him down between the two cars which ran over him. As soon as they reached him they saw at a glance that he was dead.
