I am looking for any family history on Paul Herbert Marcks. Born 1886 in Zella Mehlis, Thuringia, Germany and died 1941 in Shanghai, China. Spouses Name was Hedwig Mueller Marck. I need information on maternal and paternal sides.
I'm looking for information on Davidowski, Labuda, and Hoppa family in wisconsin. This is what I have so far Adam Dawidowski and Eva Kuper, poland, Sierakowice paish. Married on 1845. Their children born in poland were
Eva Louise 1848, Jozeph Ignaz 1850, Marianna Franciska 1853, Josephine marianna 1858 and Michael Augusta 1859. I don't know if they married, when they died or if they even came to the united state.
Michael Agusta married Agusta Labuda on 1885 in poland. Her father Adam Davidowski was deceased by now. I don't know when he was born but I know he had to die between 1859 and 1885. I also don't know the birth or death of Eva kuper.
They had 3 children in poland leon, eva (died), anna. They came to wisconsin in 1892 and settled in the bevent, marathon county here they had Martha, John and Joseph. I know that Martha married a Alex Walkush and Anna married a Walksuh to but I don't know the husbands name. Leon married Mary Cychosz. I know pretty much the Wisconsin ancestry after that.
At the time of michael and Agustas marriage her dad was deceased and her mother was remarried to a Franz Hoppa. I don't know when he died etc but i know it was in wisconsin. I don't know time of marriage.
Her first husband was Stanislaus Labuda. I found from looking on polish wesite that I believe he was born in 1805 in poland to Stanlius labuda and Magdalena. The other siblings listed for him are Anna 1804, Adalbertus 1808, Francisca 1812, Joannes 1813 and Marianna 1816. I believe his first wife was a Catharyna Wika and his children with her were Francisca1832, August 1833, Anna Marianna 1837 and Johann jacob 1839. I figured this out from copies of records I just had on Johann. There was his death record and it said he died in 1886 and was married to a Josephine Walkusz in 1865. I have not been able to find if they had any children or not. There was also a joseph labuda listed on the death record of Johann but then on evas death record is stated a josheph Hoppa so I'm not sure what was right. Franciska married Stanlius labuda in 1859 and I believe he died in 1873 making him 67 years old it just all added
Her second marriage to Franz I found out from looking up at websites that they had Martha born 1885. I don't know if they had any more children in an obituary I have there's a charles and a mathilda (flees) listed as Marthas siblings. I'm also questioning if there wasn't a basil. She married first a john fry and then a george Tritten.
I am looking for descendants and ancestors of William J. Marks b.~1849 & Laura Lucinda (Taylor) Marks b.~1850.They were married Oct 25,1869, Van Buren Co., IA.Their children were Charles b.~1870, Anna b.~1872, Leonard b.~1875, Lena b.~1875, Lawrence b.1881, Jesse/James b.~1883, and Harvey b. unk. Lawrence is my grandfather who homesteaded in Oklahoma. Most children were born in Van Buren Co., IA. By 1895 Laura was left a widow found living in Ft. Madison, Lee Co., IA with some of her children and Anna Marks that is older, possibly an aunt, previous census has Anna with Henry Marks (uncle?).William J. Marks seemingly an orphan at the age of 8 was found living with Benjamin Walker in Washington Twn., Van Buren Co., Iowa. Benjamin’s daughters married McCune and Stevens gentlemen so these families may know ofWilliam’s background.
Laura Lucinda Taylor may be the daughter of John and Almeda/Elmeda Taylor with siblings of Elizabeth, Eliza, George Lee/LeRoy, Franklin, John, Monroe, and Zack. All siblings were born in Indiana, Illinois, and Iowa. If these names compare to your ancestors please contact me to share info. Family names that may be related or know info are Marks, Knotts, Rathvon, Rumbaugh, Kooken, McLaughlin, Matson, Taylor, Walker, McCune, Stevens, Graft, and Carter.
just found your message and not sure if you have your answers but i am a descendant as well. perhaps my father (same name) has given some. charles francis, the first born of laura lucinda taylor and william jesse marks, was my great grandfather. i have slightly different birth dates but know little else. i just acquired my father's files on all this so will explore them and offer whatever i have if you are interested. Murray Marks
Looks like your father and my grandfather are brothers? My grandfather is Richard F. Marks. There is another brother correct. It was so great, this summer, Richard got to go visit them. My dad is Dennis. I must say, I looked you up after 'Mari' said she saw your picture on the UofT website. Explains my interest in forensic science.
This is a link to my tree, but I don't have much only jonathan to William to Charles to Richard. I think the website will let you add more if you like.
I have been in contact with your father and some of our info agrees but some does not. As I understand it he believes that Jonathan Marks was William Jesse/Jessie Marks (WJM) but I wonder if it is a switch of father's names. Laura Lucinda Taylor Marks farther was John/ Jonathan Taylor proven by census info and I do not know William Jesse Marks father actually is. The first recorded history that I have of WJM is in an 1856 Iowa census at age 8 in the home of Benjamin Walker. WJM continued to live with the Walkers in different census until marrying Laura Lucinda Taylor. A Mary Marks is also found in census with the Carter family a near neighbor of Benjamin Walker. My guess is that both WJM and Mary Marks were orphans that the two families took in. One of the Walkers daughter's name was Frances. A connection to CFM's middle name? I always wondered who WJM and Mary Marks parents were.
Do you have anything that states WJM info besides family recollection info? I always wanted to to go to Van Buren County, Iowa to search for more info, but I still have gradeschoolers at home and do not have the time to make the trip. So far your dad and any other of your descendants have not been that interested in our info since it is not the same, but it is all based on recorded information. I have tried following siblings of CFM and WLM and believe I have found some, but not much.
One of my first cousins recently became very interested in our Marks heritage so it could be quite profitable to combine our searches and found out more. I have seen your picture on-line at U of __ and you have some simiilar family resemblences to the JMM descendant and also my first cousin, a WLM descendant. My immediate line has more of the lighter hair and skin. The very light blue eyes of CFM appear in my family, but not everyone. Your dad is very proud of you. Your dad has my e-mail address and I would send you again what I have sent him. I have a few leads to just possible family relatives but nothing concrete. A DNA test to just what background lurks in our past could prove interesting. Write again if you do find my address from your father. I do not like putting address on public sites unless needed. I think I shared with your dad a pic of CFM maybe as a teen and then one later in his life with his younger brothers.
Sorry so long to get back to you. Thank you for all the information. I am all excited by this. The only picture i have of CFM is the one taken in 1927 so i would like to see the one of him as a younger man. My father dumped his files my way as he is terminally ill. Unfortunately, i didn't get to question him about all these events. The light blue eyes and dark skin is a Marks thing. i am still going through my father's files and the orphan status for WJM father is frustrating. I will get back to you and would like to learn more. I am going to Utica (Van Buren County, IA) later in the fall after i go to CFM and his wife Amelia's resting place in Moline. What are you working on?
Do you have a public tree on this site? It looks as if I am a decendant. My father is Murray Marks' cousin. I would love to see what you have and be able to give you some newer information. My grandfather is Murray Marks sr. bother.
Although I just have names of history, I would love to learn about the family history.
