My 3rd great grandmother Francisca Egli was b. abt 1800 in "Germany" and died 1-29-1852 in Cincinnati, Hamilton CO., OH. She was married to a Johan Beck b. abt 1800 Baden and died 11-2-1883 in Cincinnati. There are several other Egli's that I have found in Cincinnati around the same time period: Anthony (b. 1816 in Switzerland) & Joseph (born in 1820 Switzerland) that were cabinent makers and moved to Richmond, Wayne Co., IN between 1860-1870. There is another set of brothers Joseph E. Egli, a lawyer (b. 1829 Switzerland, d. 2-22-1873 in Cincinnati) and Jacob A. Egli real estate agent (b. 1831 Switzerland d. aft 1880 in Cincinnati).
It appears that Johan and Francisca raised their children Catholic based on Church burial records. I believe Francisca may have been from Switzerland as I have found many census entries that show Germany and Switzerland interchangeably with the same individual. It is interesting to note that Francisca Beck Schlosser (Johan and Francisca's daughter) listed her parents as being from Holland in the 1880 census.
Does anyone have Egli/Eggli/Egley/Eagle ancestors that came through Cincinnati?
