Yost / Jost in 1890's Inzenhof

Yost / Jost in 1890's Inzenhof

Posted: 31 Oct 2010 2:46AM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Yost, Jost
Greetings, I am trying to determine the parents of Cecilia Yost, born 6 December 1892 in Inzenhof. She came to the Lehigh County, Pennsylvania area of the USA in 1909 and died in California in 1931. Her children never knew her. I am trying to help with that now.

Cecelia's death certificate lists her father as John Jost. She was Catholic.

I would appreciate any information you may have on this surname, or Austrian research advice for finding a birth record for Cecelia Yost / Jost. Thank you!

the name is correct written Jost. Yost would be an americanizing.
Inzenhof has a houselist for the year 1858! Jost to find at house-nr. 2, 6, 7, 11, 24, 29, 42, 44, 54, 73, 80, 85, 89 and 109. a Josef Jost was at house-nr.29 and 54, so possible one of them her home: http://www.austriasites.com/austria-4u/orte/bgld/i/inzenhof....

possibility Nr.272 in list: http://www.ellisisland.org/search/matchMore.asp?order_num=19...
possible this would be the brother-in-law (my guess). he went to his friend Franz Jost! who was also from Rabafüzes. i must look again if can find out on shipmanifest if Cecilia came with Johann´s wife, which was then her sister. so possible both came in same year after him in June and Franz was of sure a relative i think, maybe their brother or cousin.....now, it looks like she traveled with others from Rabafüzes, as right side of shiplist shows, but it´s a pity left side where are the persons listed is no name only the line-number. but the line nr. 15 shows that a person from Rabafüzes went to friend Anna Jost, Atiles? (Allentown meant?) PA, Lehigh County like all others.

i just have seen after looking again on the Inzenhof-hous-list
that there also Köppel and Köppl to find.

and found out more of interest - the phonebook for Germany shows 6128 hits for the name Jost.much more then Austria AND there is a place in Germany named Walleshausen. their homepages says, that people from there settled in old times in Rabafüzes! so my guess that the orgin before centuries for Jost maybe in Germany to find.
"Raabfidisch – Rábafüzes
Aber was hat das mit Walleshausen zu tun???
Geschichticher Hintergrund:
Die Einwanderung der ersten Deutschen erfolgte um 1000, als deutsche Ritter in Begleitung der Königin Gisela Herzogin aus Bayern, in das Karpatenbecken kamen. Gisela war die Frau des ersten ungarischen Königs St. Stephan."
Raabfidisch – Rábafüzes
which connection with walleshausen(Germany)???
historical background:
the immigration of the 1st germans was nearly at year 1000, when german knights in company with queen Gislea, countress of Bavaria, came into Karpaten-area. Gisela was the 1st wife of the 1st hungarian king St.Stefan.

Until 1789 Inzenhof belonged to the Parish of Heiligenkreuz and from 1789 on to the Parish of St. Emmerich in Oberradling (Felsö Rönök) - you should find the birth record for Cecilia on the LDS-film from Rönök 1789-1895.
I do have some headstone pictures for the name Jost from the cemetery of Inzenhof (birth dates starting 1862)

Hello!

I know the JOST from Inzehof...because they´re the brothers and sisters of my greatgrandmother. she was born as Jost. My GGM buyed a ticket and want to went to America too but she felt in love an married Alois Köppel (Koeppel). They have got my greatgrandmother Angela Köppel in 1904. Angela Köppel married Julius Ecker, maybe between 1920-1924. They have 5 (?) children. The youngest Child (Maria) is my grandmother and was born 1938...
We also have Fotos in our Family with the JOST and KÖPPEL.
