I'm looking for the ancestors and relatives of Christian MOESER, my gggg-gf:
Christian Moeser (3/25/1813 or 1815, Hesse Darmstadt; d. Cincinnati, OH 1892) married Clotilda DORNBERG (12/4/1821, Schwartzburg-Sondershausen; d.Cincinnati, OH 1/1/1895) and had 5 children: Alma, Emma*, Edmund, Clotilda, Louis.
Emma MOESER (12/12/1852, Pittsburg, PA; d.10/16/1930, Seattle, WA) married Carl Frederich SCHILDKNECHT (9/9/1842, Lubeck, Germany; d.8/20/1941, Seattle, WA).According to the obituary posted in the Mankato newspaper, Carl Frederich came to the US in 1854 and settled with his parents in Wisconsin.They had 5 children: Carl* (who sometimes went by "Charles"), Edmund, Lucy, Ella, and Fred.Between 1866-1919, they owned a cigar factory in Mankato, then moved to Seattle, however, after their deaths, their remains were returned to Mankato, MN, and are interred at the Glenwood Cemetary Mausoleum.
If this sounds familiar, please contact me.I'm collecting info and stories for a family website.Thanks! Lucinda Patten LosAngeles
