Xaveria (ZILIUS) BLEICHER is my great grandmother's sister

She was born in the town of Rottweil in Wurttemberg, Germany as Xaveria ZILIVY. Her father was Johann ZILIVY(1820).

In Jan 1872, Xaveria ZILIVI, her two year old dauughter Wilhelmine Pauline ZILIVI, and her sister Wilhelmine ZILIVY emigrated from Germany to the United States. ZILIVY is almost certainly the Slovak name ZILAVY. At some point their surname was changed to the "German" name ZILIUS.

Around 1872 she married Frank BLEICHER (1844-1912) who was born in Austria. They had the following children:

1. Annie M. BLEICHER b: Jul 1873 in PA
2. Mary BLEICHER b: 1875 in PA
3. Kathyryn "Kate" BLEICHER b: Dec 1876 in PA
4. Frank X. BLEICHER b: May 1884 in PA
5. Herman Joseph BLEICHER b: 4 Sep 1886 in PA
7. Clementine BLEICHER b: May 1889 in PA

There is a publication of the Blair County Genealocical Society that indicates where she is buried in this cemetery. It states that her gravestone was apparently moved. I used the map in that book and in 2006 I went to the cemetery and verified that the grave marker is not where it is supposed to be. There are only "new" gravestones in that section.
