Surnames: Kleinhaus, Keunhous, Stahl, Siegel, Blanck, Schmidt
Henry or Heinrich Stahl had 2 children Harry and Helene, who were cousins of the Kleinhaus family who departed from Brenen Germany in 1883 on the ship OHIO. The Stahl family also were in the poorhouse in Muscatine, IA for about 10 years 1900-1910. The 4 Kleinhaus boys were in the "Home" in IA also. Somehow, they are cousins, as they appear in the 1930 Census for Henry Lewis Kleinhaus in Chicago, Cook Co, IL, living together with George and Carl Kleinhaus. The 1st 3 children of Ludwig Kleinhaus had a different mother - have not been able to find her name. She probably died in Germany about 1882 giving birth to daughter Martha, then Ludwig Married Dorothea (I think Siegel) and brought his new wife and 3 children from 1st wife to US, arriving 1 may 1883 in New York. They settled in Lee Co., IL. Ludwig became ill, or had an accident about 1890, and the step-mom sent his 2 girls, Maria and Martha away. Story goes they were taken in by a Doctor and his family, where Martha ws treated like a queen, and Marie a servant. Trying to connect the Kleinhaus' and Stahls -perhaps Ludwig's 1st wife's maiden name?
