My great-great grandfather came into New Orleans, La around 1855 from Alsace-Lorraine area. Frank Eschenbrenner was b.1832, Nassau, Prussia and married Rosina Bruderle, b. 1832 Alsace,France sometime in the 1850's in France? She was expecting their first child when they landed in New Orleans.
They had 8 children: Herietta, Eugenie, Louis, Emilie, Frank, Frances, Josephine, and Charles. All of the children were born in New Orleans.
Frank and Rosina moved their family to Houston, Texas.Frank was a shoe maker. The girls married into the Brunner, Bissett, Ladd, and Lee-Lewis families of Houston. Louis Eschenbrenner returned to New Orleans, La where his descendants live today.
Looking for parents, brothers,sisters of Frank. We believe his father to be Phil Eschenbrenner but not sure.
Looking for parents of Rosina Bruderle or brothers and sisters. We think she had a brother who came over with them to N. O., La but not sure. Any help would be appreciated.
