I am searching for information on the following Landgraf's:
JACOB FRANZ LANDGRAF, b. 24 June 1830, Bayern [Bavaria]
ANTON FRANZ ANDREAS LANDGRAF, b. 24 Feb. 1836, Bayern [Bavaria].
These two brothers came to the United States between 1848-1858, arriving in New Orleans.
Jacob Franz [called Frank] was my 2nd great-grandfather and while in New Orleans he married MARIA [MARY] CATHERINE STEUERNAGEL on 4 Feb. 1858.Frank and Mary moved north to St. Louis not long after they married and lived there the rest of their lives.Frank was a carpenter by trade.
Anton remained in New Orleans for several years and married ELIZABETH BRANDAU about 1860.Anton and Elizabeth had one child in 1861 in New Orleans, then moved north to St. Louis and had three more children.Anton was a millwright.
After living in St. Louis for almost 10 years, Anton and his family moved back to New Orleans, where their fifth child was born in 1871. I am supposing that business or employment opportunities motivated their return, but within a few years, Anton and his family were once again back in St. Louis, where their last child was born in 1878.
Death certificates identify JOHANN/JOHN J. [JACOB?] LANDGRAF as their father and their mother as ------- STOER/STOUER.[Her name MAY have been Josephine, as the name is used frequently for girls in the family.]
However, I can find no information on Johann J. and [Uknown] Stoer/Stouer Landgraf.Can anyone help me find out something more about these parents?Both Frank and Anton give their birthplace as Bayern [Bavaria] and they may have been born in Hesse-Darmstadt.
I am calculating that Johann J. Landgraf was probably born between 1800-1810 plus/minus 5 years.[Unknown] Stoer/Stouer was also probably born 1800-1810 plus/minus 5 years.
I appreciate any help anyone could give me.Thanks in advance!
