In loving memory of August Oesting…

Christened as Friedrich Wilhelm Oesting in Minden, Germany, but his name is listed as Frederick William August Oesting on his son's Christening record in NYC.

He was the son of August Oesting and Wilhelmine Sophie "Karoline" Kalfur. Sources for mother's name also give Caroline. Brother of William Charles Oesting, Sr. He married Lina Sommer on January 21, 1883. Their five children were Clara (Weil), Emma, Lillian (Stahl), Laura and Edwin A. Oesting. Edwin might have been christened Frederick William August. It seems his name may have been changed to Edwin before his passing. There is a birth record for Frederick which clearly states his parents names and was born on the same date as Edwin according to Edwin's death certificate and age at death.

August's birth year has conflicting documentation. Headstone says 1861. His passport says Dec 17, 1860 and 1910 census says Dec 1860.

In search of date of death and interment for their daughter Lillian Stahl.
