Hi everyone, I am looking for information on my Adams family line in Toledo, Lucas county, Ohio. Information is fairly sketchy, but here is what I have.
Ludwig Harvey Adams b.October 10, 1841 (or 1847) Langhagen, near Schnearn?, by Mecklinburg Germany (hand written document is very hard to read) He died January 25, 1920 in Toledo, Lucas Co. Ohio, and is buried at Forest Cemetery in Toledo. His death Certificate has him as the son of August Adams b.Germany and wife unknown.
Ludwig came to America about 1867, and was said to have been sponsored by his brother Fredrick. (Who obviously must have arrived earlier) Family lore says Ludwig met his wife Caroline Bremer or Braemer on the ship coming to America. Caroline was born April 16, 1848 near Bremen, Germany. I can find no further pedigree information on them so far.
Ludwig and Caroline had the following Children: i. Wilhelmina Henrietta Adams b.1878 Toledo OH m. Ernest Andrews.
ii. Louise Adams b.? died at age 18
iii. Bertha Adams b.? m. an Unknown Sanders
iv. Lena Adams b.? m. an Unknown Rossbecker
v. Mayme Adams b.? m. A. G. Flick
vi. John Adams b.? ------------------------------------------ This same handwritten document has no dates at all, but names Ludwig's siblings as:
John Adams Fredrick Adams Charles Adams Theodore Adams Lena Adams Mary Adams
I would very much appreciate any help finding more on this family. Thanks for your time~Charles
