15073Re: Albrecht/Borchers brothers
- Feb 5, 2012Okay - now I think I get it -
something that you did not make clear previously -
the ALBRECHT brothers *ARE* the BORCHERS brothers;
or rather, step-brothers - -
in short-form :
August Albrecht married Rose Louise Ashenfelter ca.1868;
August died 1874;
Rose Louise Ashenfelter Albrecht married Richard C Borchers ca.1876;
Rose Louise Ashenfelter Albrecht Borchers died 1888;
Richard C Borchers married Anna Albrecht (his step-daughter) 1890.
a regular soap opera! Complete with half-kin, step-kin,
name-changes, and a marriage to a step-daughter.
(Were there any adoptions as well?)
And I had previously asked if you were confusing OTTO ALBRECHT
with the name that you were requesting of OTTO BORCHERS -
BUT THEY ARE ACTUALLY THE SAME PERSON !!! LOL !!!
In this transcript of 1880 census,
OTTO (born ALBRECHT) is shown with step-surname BORCHERS -
1880 Reading, Berks, Pennsylvania
Borchers, Richard/33:Brunswick:Brun:Brun, Rose/30:PA:PA:PA,
(), Hannah/10, Idalaid/9, Nellie/8, Otto/7, Carl/6, [are ALBRECHT]
(), Herbert/3, Frederick/3m/b:March [both BORCHERS]
Kate Stitzer / 17 / servant
NOTE: all children are labelled as born PA:PA:PA !!
So - please correct me if I am wrong -
Roland Borchers is the son of Richard C Borchers and Anna Albrecht;
Otto Albrecht/Borchers is the son of August Albrecht & Rose Louise;
Anna Albrecht is the daughter of August Albrecht & Rose Louise;
since Otto and Anna are direct siblings,
then Otto is Roland's uncle;
and since Otto is Richard Borchers' stepson,
then Otto is also Roland's step-brother!
But more than just step-brothers, because they actually *do* share
some blood (some DNA) through Anna Albrecht Borchers.
1870 Philadelphia Ward 20 District 66, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Albrecht, August/31:Prussia, Rose/24:PA, Annie E/10m:PA/b:Aug(1869)
This could be the young August Albrecht (age 21) -
1860 Philadelphia Ward 17, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Albrecht, Herman/25:Germany, Georgiana/25:PA, [presumably married?]
(), Otto/21:Ger, August/21:Ger,
(), Antonio/3:PA, William/1:PA [presumably children of Herman?]
Elisa Broadwater / 37:VA
Jane Ovenhone / 12:PA
And this could be his immigration -
New York Passenger Lists, 1820-1957
Name: August Albrecht
Arrival Date: 8 Nov 1858
Birth Year: abt 1839
Place of Origin: Apenrade
Port of departure: Bremen, Germany
Port of arrival: New York
Port Arrival State: New York
Port Arrival Country: United States
Ship Name: New York
line 73: Heinr(?) Albrecht 36(?) (place of origin) Philadelphia
line 74: Maria " 18 (place of origin) ditto
line 75: Otto " 19 (place of origin) Apenrade
line 76: August " 19 (place of origin) ditto
So - does August Albrecht have a twin brother Otto,
or is Otto his cousin, or is there some other relationship?
And is Herman another sibling (in the 1860 census)?
And what about Heinrich/Henry?
And this appears to be "Heinr & Maria" in 1860 -
1860 Philadelphia Ward 10, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Albrecht, Henry/38:Mecklenburg, Mary/20:Meck, Charles/5m:PA
