I am researching the Ost line that came from Baltersweiler/St. Wendel in the Saarland section of Germany to Philadelphia, PA.
Nikolaus Ost, b. Jan.26,1777 Baltersweiler, Saarland, Germany - the son of Heinrich Oste and Anna Maria Jose, was married to Anna Maria Loch [b. 1784].They married Apr. 17,1809 in neighboring Bishofsdron.
Nikolaus and Anna Maria had seven children: Margaretha, Nikolaus, Maria Anna, Barbara, Elisabetha, Anna Maria, and Philipp. At least four of the children came to Philadelphia, PA in the early 1840s - they were: Nikolaus, Barbara, Philipp, and Maria.Their father, Nikolaus, Sr. also came to Philadelphia sometime after their mother's death in 1847.
I am looking for anyone who is descended from this family. I have a good deal of information to share.
