I am looking for anyone who is realated to Haus (Harvey) and Berta (Bertha)
Eifert.Berta and Heinrich,who immigrated through Philadelphia,June 1914
on the ship Chemnitz whith son Heinrich (Henry) at age of 2.Shewas going
to meet Haus Eifert.
Then I can't find them in the 1920 census anywhere. But, in1930 they are in Mount Pleasant, Racine Co, Wisconsin. Haus immigrated in 1912and Bertha and Henry in 1914.
Haus is now called Harvey, age 42, marriedat 21 and born in Russia Bertha, age 41, married at 20, born inRussia
Henry, age 18 b. Russia
Rose, age 14 b. WI
Alexander, age 11, b. WI
Olga, age 9, b. WI
Robert, age 8, WI
Carl, age 6, WI
William, age 3, WI
Henry worked for the railroad as per hissocial security info. I found WWII registrations for Alex,Robert, Carl and William. Alexander b. July 1, 1918, D. 10/20/1960-enlisted in Racine, WI, was single.Is buried at Ft. Logan NationalCemetery in Denver.
Robert b. May 10 (22), 1922 enlisted inDenver, was married and living in Weld Co, Colorado. U.S. Army Tec 4. SocialSec. death record says born May 22nd, 1922 and died Nov 14, 1998 in Dillon,Beaverhead Co, MT and is buried at Mountain View Cemetery in Dillon, MT and wasdivorced at time of death.
Carl b. June 21, 1923 enlisted in CO. COXUS Navy, WWII, d. June 6, 1969 and is buried at Ft. Logan National Cemetery,Denver, CO. His wife Louise b. Nov 3, 1920 d. Dec 2, 2001 is also buried withhim at Ft. Logan.
William b. 1927 enlisted in Denver, wassingle at the time and died in Denver May 1975 and probably at Ft. LoganNational Cemetery.
This family fits your description betterand is probably why Henry was told to say he was born in WI, since all hissiblings were. I haven't found anything on the females and I haven't found thecemetery or death dates for Henry's parents (Harvey and Bertha). It is possiblethey moved to Colorado since that is where Henry's brothers appeared togo.
Suggest you put a request for assistanceon the Racine, WI message board, Weld County, CO and Denver message boards,Winnebago Co, Illinois message boards asking for cemetery info and death datesfor his parents and a separate message for information on the marriage of thefemales.
Rhiney b. January 31, 1934 d. 2/17/1961 and is buried at Fort LoganNational Cemetery in Denver where Carl, William and Alexander are buried.
I do feel like I am missing one child of Berta and Haus, my Grandfather Henry said he was the oldest of 9children.
Would love to here if anyone isrelated.
