So glad to hear from you again!! We were out of town this past weekend, so I didn't get your e-mail till just this evening.
Thank you for your posting about Karl Friedrich von Steinmetz. I will be looking into this information jus as soon as I can get a free moment, later on this week. I have to take care of my great-granddaughter......she is seven months old, and she is a handfull!!!! Her name is Angelea Alexis Stevens. She is a cute little girl, but very active.
Thank you once again for the information. Hope to hear from you soon with as much information as you can give to us, as it would make Charles so happy to know as much about his family as I know about my own family line..
I found a book to rear Nana being ring, in the InterNet, from Fritz Trautz, over the Pfaelzi emigration to North America in 18. Century, Heidelberg: Carl winter publishing house, 1959. E 184 P3T7 1959 I will times try to get the book in the book trade? They hear again of me. Friendly greetings Rolf (SCHMIDT)
You said that you found a book that told about some of the immigrations from Germany to the U.S. Have you found any information on August Seiring(Siering) and his wife, Hermena? I hope so, as Charles is really wanting to find as much information on his family's ancesters.
You see, his parents put him and his one sister, Mary Ann, in orphanige home, and his other sister, Rose Marie, was adopted from them. We only found her about ten years ago, and Mary Ann died six years ago.
Charles and Mary were shifted from one orphanige to another, then from one foster home to another. The last foster home they were in, was where I met Charles, as a mutual friend introduced us. She went to his school, and she was in my Sunday School class.
If you have found the book, and found any information on Great grandfather and Great grandmother Seiring(Siering), please let us know.
