This is what I know about Eliza(beth) MINNING.Would like to connect her to her Minning family.
She was born in the mid 1840s - probably a range of 1844 to 1848.It is believed she was born in Germany.It seems she was in New Orleans from about 1848 but this is not confirmed.She died in 1894 in New Orleans.
She was married first to August MEYER(S).No other information on him.Can only estimate year of birth as about 1845 or earlier.Cannot document his death.He was no longer married to Eliza MINNING by 1879 so the presumption is that he was probably deceased by that time.
The only child I have found of August MEYERS and Eliza MINNING is John Joseph MEYERS born November 1865 in New Orleans.He later married Mary Ellen CEARNS d/o Henry/Harry CEARNS and Catherine "Kate" LYNCH.
Eliza Minning was married second to Johnathan(John) KOENIG, born about 1848.The marriage date has not been found.They have one child, Alice KOENIG, born October 1879.Alice Koenig later married Manuel MARTINEZ.
If you recognize any of these names and can help fill in more details please post.Thanks!!!!
