Looking for the birth, parents, etc. of Rudolf (Rudolph) Freiburghaus born in Switzerland about 1835. (A descendant said 14 February 1835 but does not have birthplace or parents.)
From the Register of Swiss Surnames, the Freiburghaus family was most likely in Mühleberg and/or Neuenegg, canton Bern.
The records I have are all from the US.I can't find Rudolf in the Castle Garden records.Germans to America has three people named Freiburghaus but no Rudolf/Rudolph.
He was in the US by the early 1860s and was in a New York cavalry unit in the Civil War. I haven't seen his pension file but the index card spells his name Rudolph Freeborghouse (and lists his death in Oregon, as listed below).
After that he mostly used the name Freeburg. He married Mary Jane Bement in 1871 in Iowa. They were in Iowa in 1885, Minnesota in 1905 & 1910, and Oregon in 1910. He died in Oregon in 1918. The Oregon Death Index has identical listings for Rudolph Freeberg and Rudolph Freeberghaus.
Any suggestions etc. would be welcome.adTHANKSvance!
