This is probably a long-shot of being a relative, but I am related to a Schmidt from Hessia. I am looking for more info on Catharine Schmidt from Obenhausen, Hesse, Darmstadt. She was born there about 1849 and came to the U.S. 1856-1857. Her parents were Charles and Catharine; not sure where they lived upon arrival. She married William Awe around 1865 and they lived in New York. Any of this sound familiar?
