Looking For Clara Schardt's Family

Looking For Clara Schardt's Family

Posted: 17 Jul 2001 4:45AM GMT
I am looking for the family of Clara Aebi Schardt. She was most likely born in Cincinnati, OH. Her brother William Conrad Aebi was my husband's Grandfather. I am looking for Clara's family in hope that they may have Aebi family information. I don't know much, like her husband's name, but I believe she had a daughter and lived in the Cleveland, OH area. Any help is appreciated. I may be contacted directly at pooh.bear5@juno.com < Thanks!

Surnames: Schardt, Aebi
Clara married Conrad Adolph Schardt.
Conrad was born in Cincinnati in 1889, 1890, or 1891 -- depending on which record you want to believe. Conrad son of Frederick/Friedrich and Minnie Schardt -- which would make him the first cousin once removed of my father-in-law. Schardts in Cincinnati are almost all from one family which migrated from Kusel, Germany in the 1880s.

The Aebi family is of Swiss origin.
In 1900, Clara is listed in Cincinnati with her widowed father Charles Abei, older brothers Charles Jr. and William.
In 1910, 16 year old Clara is still with her father Chas. J. Aebi in Cincinnati; both brothers out of the household.

By the time of the 1917 Draft, Conrad and Clara were married and living in Cleveland. They eventually moved to San Bernardino County, California sometime after WWII.
They had what seems to be an only child Louise, who married Robert Boylan in Cleveland. I don't know where any of the Boylan children are today; perhaps still in the Cleveland area.

Charles J. Aebi died 11 May 1922 in Hamilton County. He had remarried sometime between 1910 and 1920, second wife named Adelaide. Charles is buried in the Vine Street Hill Cemetery. Death Certificate has the following:
Charles J. Aebi
Death date: 11 May 1922
Birth date: 23 Mar 1860
Birthplace: Berne, Switzerland
Cemetery: Vine Street Hill Cemetery
Spouse: Adalede Aebi
Father: Jacob Aebi; Berne, Switzerland
Mother: Mary Voeglow; Berne, Switzerland
(Handwriting on the mother's name a bit unclear, surname might be wrong)

There is an Aebi/Eby family association which has done a lot of research and could probably help you trace the family through Swiss records if you're interested in following that line.

Hope some of this is helpful to you.
Good luck,
Scott

A little more info. Looks like only Conrad Schardt moved to California. I just found Clara's Ohio Death Certificate showing she died in Cleveland in 1950. Her parents are listed as Charles and Mary Aebi, mother's maiden name not known.
