Bio and Links
Bio Photo In the 1980's I started researching my Linn ancestors (without benefit of computer) but got busy with my sons' activities and put it on hold. In 1999 a cousin got me involved with my Steinberg ancestors and I have been going full speed ahead ever since.

Upon graduating from the University of Illinois my father obtained employment in the State of Washington, far from any relatives. My ancestors (after entering the USA)settled in Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Montana, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio and New Jersey - I want to experience first hand where and how they lived so I travel the country obtaining data, meeting people, seeing the sights and tramping cemeteries. I missed the "cousin experience" growing up and think that is why I enjoy genealogy so much -- meeting new cousins (who cares if they are 1st or 10th cousins)and sharing our family histories.

I am researching Linn, Gibson, Weir, Scott, Polk, Steinberg, Koerner, Mitten, Bennett, Switzer (Swisher), Slonaker, Shaw, Goff, Townsend, McCarty and Whitehead, Miller, Schroen, Glabe, Schafer/Schaefer/Shafer. I am also reseaching Dishon, Deshon, DeShon, Deschamps and Herrold for my two sons.

RE: Margurite Lutz Seidelman
Hello, Jan... No Margurite is not in my direct line. There were a couple Seidelman Families that came from Germany and settled in the Midwest in Aurora IL and Oswego IL (some went to Wisconsin) My line is from Leonard John Seidelman and Marie Oestreicher who came to the USA around 1885 from the Marktgergel Germany area.

RE: Koerners
Well, maybe you'll find a link at some point. I'm marginally related through one of Georg's wives who was also married to one of my Woltzen clan.

RE: Eske Koerner - 157399252
Jan- I just found a listing for Abbo and Georg online and they are listed one after another in the OSB Eilsum. This makes it almost a certain thing that Georg is his son. And we know Georg's mother is Eske so it is highly likely that Abbo was a husband of Eske.


OSB Eilsum Eintrag: 1187 Greetsiel Abbo Albrecht Körner * 18.12.1830 Greetsiel 09.04.1860

OSB Eilsum Eintrag: 1188 Greetsiel Georg Albrecht Körner Schiffer zu Greetsiel


I found it at http://www.tote-punkte-ostfriesland.de/kirchspiel/Greetsiel

Cheers!

Eske Koerner - 157399252
Hi Jan- I found Eske in the funeral records for St Peter Lutheran near Benson, Woodford Co, Illinois today. She is indeed the mother of Georg/George Koerner. In that source she is listed as Eske Jakobs Koerner.

RE: Emma Keller 151660402
St Louis City in not a part of St Louis County, so this the right move.

Thanks for making those changes.

This is a relative of my friend and I am helping her with her family.

Thanks again.

Charlotte

RE: Harriet Elizabeth Ryhn Shigley
Jan, sorry I don’t know anything more about Harriet. I do my research from the Shigley side. Actually, I do research on all “Shigley’s of America”. My late cousin Colonel James Newton Shigley got me interested. He did extensive research during his military travels. So far, all Shigley’s we have run across are from the same line that came from Germany.

Trying to stay warm here in GA at below freezing temps and wind chills in the teens. BRRR!!
