RE: Andrew Alberts
Hello, My Albert Alberts is a different one than yours. Mine was born in 1914 and died in 2002. He did have a sister Etta, however, she is my grandma and married a Haussler.

how nice!
Hi, Terri, so, in a way we are related? Nice to read you! I will try to get informations about Anton's parents. Do you perhaps know anything about my great uncle? I am writing a book about him and his brother who was a jesuit and missionaire at the Mission of St. Francis, South Dakota. Perhaps you know how Henrietta and Anton got to know each other? And when they married? I'd be very thankful for any information!
Greetings from Austria!

Philip Everhart
Buss- Bunge-Watermann-Scippmann
Hey Terri:

My name is Philip Everhart. I am planning to be driving from Denver to Blue Hill, NE, to spend next Thursday night. I plan to visit at Trinity Lutheran Cemetery to visit my great-grandfather's grave, Jacob Janssen Buss. His daughter, Mary W. BUSS Uhrig, was my grandmother. I'm from SC and would so like to have the opportunity to speak with some relative or relatives while spending the night there. Do you know of anyone of the Buss family in Blue Hill who might be willing to speak with me and who would be knowledgeable of the family? I have been involved in genealogy for a few years and would sincerely appreciate any assistance.

I am also interested in the Bunge, the Watermann and the Schippmann line.

Thank you,
Philip M. Everhart

RE: Oleslager vs Olischlager
Hi Terri;

We have been in Loveland since 1991, and before that it was Colorado Springs.

Most of my ancestry research recently has been tracking my wife's Swedish & Norwegian ancestry. Last June we took our daughter & granddaughter to Europe to meet the German, Swedish & Norwegian relatives. That is the high point in ancestry research, to go back to the old countries and meet the family, than walk where your ancestors walked so long ago.

Best Regards ..... Rick

RE: Oleslager vs Olischlager
Hi Terri;

Herman's son Henry Oleslager is in the 1880 census in Jackson, Michigan, and in July 1881 in New Albany, Indiana marrying Catherine Krummer. I know Henry worked for the railroad, so this maybe why he went to New Albany. Henry's son Herman was born in New Albany in 1882, and was also an engineer for the railroad in New Albany. So it looks like the Oleslagers were tied to the B&O railroad there.

If you have not already contacted the cemeteries, you should do it and see who buried your relatives. Next contact the local library to get copies of the obituaries, wedding announcements and births for the people you are working on. These newspaper items often list other family members and other helpful tidbits.

Best Regards ....... Rick

RE: Oleslager vs Olischlager
Hi Terri;

Here is what I know so far. Two brothers, Joseph Ohlenschlager arrived in New York from the Baden region of Germany in about 1851, and settled in Buffalo. Two years later his younger brother Herman Ohlenschlager arrived and settled in Buffalo. Both brothers married German women and started families in Buffalo. Joseph stayed in Buffalo and kept the Ohlenschlager name. You can find several Ohlenschlager people buried in the Buffalo area. There are even living descendants in the area today.

Brother Herman (my great-great grandfather) moved on to Detroit, Michigan and changed the family name to Oleslager (we believe to make it more American). He later moved to Jackson Michigan, but is buried in Detroit. Several of Herman's descendants are buried in Jackson. I do know that Herman's oldest son, Henry Oleslager settled in New Albany Indiana, and several members of that family branch are buried in New Albany.

I do not have a Gerhard in the family tree, but it is possible he could have been the son of another Ohlenschlager brother who stayed in Germany (Gerhard is the approximate age of Joseph & Herman's children) and came a generation later than Joseph & Herman. I find the New Albany connection interesting. I would not get to excited about the different name spellings as misspellings back than were common, especially with complex (to Americans) German names.

I do know that both Herman & Joseph being from southern (south-West) Germany were stanch Catholics and arrived in New York on ships from Le Havre, France, indicating they were driven out of Germany as a result of the 1848 Baden revolt (an interesting story by its self). I think we will need to continue poking around to see if we can find a connection between your Gerhard and my Oleslager/Ohlenschlager people.

Best Regards ..... Rick (
