Adelhaide Bernum Bequeret
Have done much research on the Bernum family in both Illinois and Missouri. Adelhaide Caroline Bernum was the daughter of Heinrich (Henry) vonBernum and Hendrina Magdalena Terhorst. Three generations of vonBernums arrived at New Orleans on 31 Dec 1847 on the ship GENERAL GREEN out of Antwerp, Belgium. The John who is listed on her death cert as her father was actually her younger brother. (Her parents were dead before her marriage so her children never knew their grandparents)
Note: her grand parents were Albert vonBernum and Christina (or Gustina) Gatman.
I have Albert's WILL and subsequent lawsuit filed by his survivors; Henry's Civil War records including his daughter Julia's request for his Civil War pension. The records include numerous depositions which include family ancestors.
Hope you have a chance to correct the error in her father's name.
THANK YOU! Barb Bernum Roddy
