Hi, I am searching for info on the Martin GERIS family. Martin GERIS (actualy KERIS) was born in the Netherlands in 1854 and came to America with his family in 1862. First to Minnesota, than to South Dakota and ended up in Union Twp in Sedgwick County, Kansas. In the book Colwich Sacred Heart Cemetery there is the following on him: Martin T. GERIS Jan 26, 1851-Aug 11, 1917, his wife Margarete Nov 26, 1866 - Oct 19, 1954. Also their daughter Susan is listed 1895-1933. Would love to have a copy of the obit of Martin and Margarete
Geris. All other information is more than welcome. Many thanks in advance, Irma Lommen -
Salden, the Netherlands.

Hello Jim,
I am sorry to say so but this Geris family is unknown to me.
The Martin Geris family I am searching for came from the Netherlands (as KERIS), to MN, than SD and Martin ended up in Kansas. The rest of his brothers did stay in MN as far as I know. When ever I come accross any of your Geris's I will surely pas it on to you.
Good luck with your search, Irma

You mentioned "Geris brothers in Minnesota". I have a Nicholas Geris b. 1842 who owned 120 acres in Alexandria, MN in 1870; married a Elizabeth Marie. But I know nothing about Nicholas' parents or siblings.

Do you have any information on my Nicholas Geris?

Joseph Geris in York County,NE 1880

I have a Maria F. Geris who came to America in 1848, was b. in France in early 1800's. She brought with her 3 daughters - Mary Teresa, Mary Catherine, Mary Josephine and son John. They settled in Ohio. Son John lived in McCool Junction,NE (York County)and never married. The daughter Mary Teresa married a Henry Julian whose father was born in Belgium and lived in Ohio and Illinois. On a land deed after Maria F. Geris/Jerris' death there is mentioned a Joseph Jerris/Geris and John Jerris/Geris. Could there be a connection? Hope, so. Judy

Yes, I think we have a "hit"! The son of Mary L, Joseph GERIS married a neighbor lady in Brown county, OH, named Catherine THOMPSON. I have identified 9 of their children.
John B Geris, s/o Mary L, did not marry but must have talked Joseph into moving to York co. Nebraska, and sold Joseph part of his homesteaded land.
Marie Geris, d/o Mary L, married a BERNARD. I have one child of that marriage identified.
Margaret J Geris d/o Mary L, married John B GOEURY. I have 3 children in that family.
Theresa, d/o Mary L, married a TERRY. I have 3 children identified.
Mary, d/o Mary L, married a JULIAN. I have 5 children identified.
My descendants from the Joseph Geris & Catherine Thompson family remained in Nebraska and eventually moved to Red Willow county. Most of Joseph & Catherine's family moved to Prince William county Virginia, near Bristow & Manasas, shortly before 1900. I have a few of their descendants in that area.
I was "led astray" into thinking that they may have been in Sedgwick Co. Ks.

I do not have the first name for the husband of Mary Geris and am guessing at a birth year of 1830. What I know about this Julian family comes from a probate record.
Mary (Geris) Julian had the following children: (I do not have dates)
Mary, Ermanza, Julia, Henry, Anthony.
Some of these children were shown as living in Monmonth, IL in 1918. Henry is shown as married & living with wife Dollie in Moline, KS in 1918.
Hope this helps. Jim

I was told that g-grandad Julian made up his name, but just in case he didn't I thought I would look up "Julian". Samuel Jesse Lester (Luster) Julian was b Feb 12, 1866 in KS I belive (?). He married Margaret "Maggie" Suvina Bristow in Belton, Bell Co., Texas on March 18 (8), 1886. All I know about Samuel is that he had a sister who died in "The Chicago Fire". Could you please tell me the children of Mary L. (Garis)& ---Julian! Thanks Linda Faye
