I have been looking high and low for more information on these ancestors. Here is all I know: They immigrated to the US in 1902. I have found more information for Maximillian, but am looking for more information on his parents and his siblings. Maximillian Braun. Born: 9, Nov. 1865 Franzfeld, Russia Father: Michael Braun b. ~1806 d. 9 Dec 1890 Mother: Eva Braun?? Maximillian's first marriage 20 Nov. 1890 to Pauline Pittsch daughter of Anton Pittsch. She was born about 1873. Died in 1891 after the birth of their first child Michael(Born 1 Sept 1891). He married Katrina Aschenbrenner probably sometime in 1892 or 1893, have not yet found a marriage record. Their children are Helen (1894) Peter (1898)Balshasar "Bolzer" (1901) Joesph (1902) Jacob (1905) Bernhard (1907) Max (1912) Mary (1914). The four oldest, Michael, Helen, Peter, Bolzer were born in Franzfeld, Russia.
Katrina Aschenbrenner Born in Josefstal, Russia about 1877. Some have said about 1873. This is the extent of my knowledge. Looking for information on her family.
So, any information on Katrina (Katharina)Aschenbrenner or on Max's parents and siblings would be much welcomed!! Also, if you have any information on Max's children that would be awesome too as I have little idea of what happened to them.
