Born Franz Hoellerer, Son of Johan George and Barbara M (Richter) Hoellerer, was born in Bavaria and immigrated with his parents and siblings 18 Dec 1856 on ship Itzstein-Welcker. According to ship records, the family left Bayernsfel Bavaria though the port at Bremen to ports of New Orleans, St. Louis, and Cinncinati where the trip ended. Although ship notes said they were going to Ohio (which is where the trip ended so that may have been the reason for the destination). Appears they may have gotten off in St. Louis instead or went to Ohio because there are other Hoeller families who established there as well, but decided to come back to Missouri?? It is unknown what happened. Either way they came to the Rich Fountain area where they had family ties with the Richter's and the Thiems and they were already had established in the Rich Fountain area. I know they were in the Rich Fountain area by 1858 as their young daughter was buried there. Some of this younger generation Franz's brothers changed named from Hoellerer to Hoeller. Siblings are: brothers John, Joseph, George, Johan and sisters Anna & Frances. Some remained in Freeburg, others moved to Vienna, MO.
