My ggg/gf was Frederick Eberling/Ebeling/Ebling b/1836 in Braunschweig/Brunswick, Germany m/Rachel HUTCHINSON b/1838 NE Ohio.Possibly Cleveland area.
I located, at the local library, the ship's index and found, what I would like ot believe is this fella and his brother, Herny. On 7 April 1852, a ship, MARIANNE from Bremen, Germany arrived at Baltimore. a FRIEDRICH EBERLINGage 16 farmer and a CAROLINE 27 'simstress' Their last place of residence was DERENTHAL and their destination was WELINGEN.
On 20 Sep 1851, a ship, AEOLUZ, from Bremem, Germany arrived at Baltimore. a HEINRICH EBERLING 14, occupation LANDMANN & Louise 18, occupaton, 'simstress' Again last place of residence Derenthal and destination WELINGEN.
I ran out of time before I could find Louis. Now my BIG puzzle/questions!!! Frederick/Friedrich is the right age; however, Henry/Heinrich is not.Census and tombstone show that he was born 1828
Who are CAROLINE & LOUISE???Who did they marry? Where is Derenthal? Is WELINGENWheeling??? any assistance appreciated Audrey
