Thomas Pluth <gruntleader@...
I am Tom, a new member here, and I am researching the
above surnames. Here is a little about them.
I need info on family of Jakob MERTH, b. 13 Jul 1800
in Oberbaumgarten (which is now Horni Pena, I
believe), d. 24 Mar 1843 in same place. He was
married to Rosalia OBENAUS(b. 3 Sept 1813, d. 14 Mar
1869). Her parents were Franz OBENAUS and Rosalie
Scheler. They had at least one son, Ignatz (or
Ignatius) MERTH (b. 18 Jul 1834, d. 27 Apr 1884 in
Bohemia). I am looking for info on Jakob's parents,
Johan MERTH (b. 1765) and Rosalia WAGERIN.
I think my OBENAUS' were from Dolni Zdar, near Horni
Pena; I know Ignatz married Theresa OBENAUS
(OBENHAUS) and she was from there.
I am also looking for the parents and family of
Mathias SCHNEIDER (b. 15 Feb 1834 in Oberbaumgarten
(?), d. 15 Feb 1914 in Sleepy Eye, MN) His wife was
Agnes OBENAUS (b. 14 Jan 1832 in Bohemia, d. 22 Apr
1908 in Sleepy Eye). I believe she was related to the
OBENAUS' mentioned above.
Anyone with any information would be appreciated
greatly. If I can help you, let me know.
I did a little searching in Leo Baca's Czech Immigration Passenger Lists books and I found the following in Volume IV --- New York Passenger Lists 1847-1869:
SCHNEIDER, Math. 34, Agn. 36, Josefa 12, Anna 9, Carl 5, Marie 3, Ignatz 2, Marie 1/4. Bohemia. Arrived on the Circassian 10 June 1868.
I would say that these are your Mathias and Agnes from Oberbaumgarten.
I can tell you a little about Dolni Zdar (Niedermuhl) and Horni Pena (Oberbaumgarten) if you will contact me at my email address.
