Seeking anyone, anywhere, anytime that can connect with this family:
Friedich Wilhelm Hamacher b. 03 December 1836 inHagen Hamm, Westfalen, Germany married Louise Ortger 30 January 1867 in St. Louis, St. Louis Co. MO.
In 1880 (as HAYMAKER) they are living in St. Clair County IL with wife Louisa, age 33, born in IL, daughter Mary age 12, born in IL,and son August age 2, born in IL.Friedich (Fred) gives his age as 43,his occupation as farmer and lists place of birth as Prussia. He notes that both his parents were born in Prussia.
1900 Census of St. Clair Co. IL lists Fred W. Hammacher, age 64, born Dec. 1835 in Germany.Again, both his parents were born in Germany.Living with him are his wife of 33 years, Louisa Hammacher, age 54, born Nov 1845 in Illinois; son August, age 23 b. Dec 1876 in IL.
Louise Hammacher died in St. Clair County IL on 28 November 1921 and it seems that Fred died sometime after 1900.
Mary Hammacher married George Piper in St. Clair County IL on26 September 1888.
August Hammacher married Caroline Amanda Johnson on 16 July 1903 in St. Clair County IL. and had 5 daughters, Luella (my grandmother), Mildred, Gladys, Evelyn and Deloras.
Would REALLY love to find further info on any and all these individuals, especially Fred's death date and location, his parents names (of course!), Louise's parents, Mary's children etc.
