My search has suggested that my great grandfather John Gottlieb Baas (1848-1879), in Milwaukee, was from a Prussian vs. a Dutch family. The progenitor, Ernst Christian Baass, had several sons including Heinrich or Henry Baas, who I presume was the father of John Gottlieb. If there is any information to confirm or refute this connection I would be very grateful.

I have a Johann Gottlieb Baas ( b. 22 Jan 1798 - Wender Aut Wollin, Pommern, Germany d. 17 May 1874) who was the son of Johann Baas and Anna Maria Jancke. He married twice: to Regina Pluedemann (1 daughter Karoline Wilhelmine b. 1829 in Pritter auf Wollin) and later to Fredericke Charlotte Christine Karstaedt 3 children - Ernst Christian August b. 1851, Emilie Pauline Augusta b. 1852 (she married Johann Kohl and had at least 2 children - Anna b. 1886 and Adur b. 1890 both born in Milwaukee, and Louis Emil Henrich b. 1855.

Are these your people ?

This matches up as far as Johann Gottlieb Baas son of Johann Baas and Anna Maria Jancke. I have him married to a different woman than the two that you mentioned. My records show that he was married to Anna Jane Greutelaar. However, that is all the info. that I have. Perhaps he was married three times and the marriage that I have recorded was very short lived. Thank you for sharing your information with me.

I have Anna Jane Treutelaar/Freutelaar/Greutelaar [b Jun 1854 in New York] married to a different John Gottlieb Baas. He was born Jul 1850 in Milwaukee,WI and was the son of Heinrich August Ferdinand Baas b. 18 Mar 1825 Pritter, Wollin, Pommern, Germany and Louisa Frederica Jensen b. Abt 1812. In turn, Heinrich August Ferdinand Baas is the son of Ernst Christian Baas b. 1798 Wender auf Wollin, Pommern, Germany and Sophie Juliane Rusch. Ernst Christian Baas is the son of Johann Baas and Anna Maria Jancke.
This makes sense because the first Johann Gottlieb Baas [ I have him listed as a Jr.] was born in 1798 and would not have married Anna Jane Treutelaar/Freutelaar/Greutelaar [b Jun 1854] in 1873, he would have been 75 years old.
The two similiar names are confusing.
Johann Gottlieb Baas Jr. married twice 1. Regina Pluedemann > one child = Karloine Wilhelmine Baas b. 21 Aug 1829 Pritter, Wollin, Pommern, Prussia, Germany and 2.Fredericke Charlotte Christine Karstaedt of Coserow, Pommern, Prussia, Germany > 3 children = A.Ernst Christian August Baas b. 19 Feb 1851 Pritter auf Wollin, Pommern, Prussia, Germany died 15 Mar 1922 B.Emilie Pauline Augusta Baas b. 30 Oct 1852 same place d. 1912 C.Louis Emil Henrich Baas b.28 Mar 1855 same place.
I hope that helps.

I am forever in your debt. What you sent fits my facts and my speculation. These are my people. More correctly, they were my mom's people.

I have a wedding portrait of John Gottlieb Baas and Anna Treutelaar posted on my "Dick Haines" family tree with Ancestry.com.

Many thanks.

In case it's helpful to your research, there were family death notices published in the local German paper for an Annie Jane Baas, née Treutelaar in 1924. Other Baas names found in these papers include an Abram, Charlotte, E. C., Emilie, Ernst, Isaac Sr., & John G.

Indexing of these papers started in 2007 and continues today.

Thanks a lot. Anna Jane Baas was my great grandmother. I hope to take time digging into this source. Though my year's worth of German is over fifty years old now.
