Joseph Eichstaedt was my grandmother's brother. My grandmother was Helen Ann Eichstaedt and was born in Illinois in 1896. She was the youngest daughter of Constantin and Katherine (Tesmer) Eichstaedt. Joseph was the oldest son of Constantin and Katherine and was born in Mass. in Mar. of 1875. In the 1900 census, he and Julia were living near his parents on 17th Street in Chicago. Later he lived on Turner St. All the brothers and sisters that I know of are listed somewhere on this Eichstaedt site. His uncle was Martin Tesmer and his aunt was Victoria Odrowski. I have one question.....does anyone know where in Poland/Germany they came from????
