Hello Oliver, I just came accross your page and hope you or someone out there can provide assistance.
I am looking for information on a Christian Ehresman born 1800 in Baden, Germany. He was married three times to three sisters with the last name of Barnhardt. He was married in Germany and had five children by his first wife. She died and he married the second wife and according to the 1850 Illinois census their child, Peter was born in Germany. They came to America about 1837. Their next child, Fannie was born in Ohio, possibly Butler County. The next two children, Mary and Anna were born in Illinois. The second wife died and he married Fannie (Veronica) on 19 March 1843.They had nine children. Fannie's obit. says she died 24 November 1895 in Woodford Co., Illinois and is buried in Eureka, Illinois. Does anyone know the names of the first two wives, information on the Barnhardt family or where they came into America at. I have not been able to locate their names on ships records.
