Hello any Gausman/Gausmann researchers out there.I requested this forum just for us and hope that anyone who accesses this will post their information or research questions.
My husband, Allen Tupker is descended from Herman Heinrich Tupker through his daughter Catherine Wilhelmina who married Gerhard Tupker as his first wife.
Gerhard's brother, Jurgen Heinrich Tupker married Wilhelmina's sister, Elizabeth.
Anna MARY Gausmann, another sister, married Isaac Brown.
Louisa, another sister married John F. Hay Sr.
Charlotte Elizabeth, the remaining sister of this group, married James Johnson.
The family came over with the Tupkers in 1838 through New Orleans to St. Louis and eventually, some of these people moved out of the St. Louis area up to the Peoria, Illinois area.
I also have some limited information on some Gausmanns in Ohio for anyone from that area.We can see if there's an overlap.
I also have some Church records information from NW Germany on this batch of Gausmanns as well as another Gausmann family from the same area.Coincidentally, another Jurgen Heinrich Tupker married yet another Gausmann woman...supposedly neither related to our bunch, but I imagine there is a relationship back in Germany a generation or two.I just haven't sorted that out yet.
Please feel free to post here...or email me privately at:
