I have posted previously a couple of years ago about my husband grandparents, Johannes and Magdelena (Lena, Madeline)SPONHEIMER who were both born in Rehborn, Germany in 1832, at least he was for sure and she close to that.They both came to the USA, New York City in 1864 with three children, Karl and 9 month old twins Eliz and Otto/Adolph.I have been going crazy with that family of 10 children.Have gotten some information finally but still searching.
I FINALLY also got SOME information from a researcher giving me at least the names and estimate of Johannes(John's) parents from their ages. At the wedding of Johannes and Magdelena LAY, Aug. 10, 1860,it gave the names of their parents. His parents were, Johann Jakob SPONHEIMER and Maria Elizabtha PAAB. Magdelena's mother, Eliz. Becker also was deceased I believe at that time.Magdelena's father was Johann(August)LAY. From his age it was guestimated that he was born in about 1798.I am guessing also that she might have also been approximately the same age or younger.
Would anyone have any information on these couples and their families OR where I might look for this information. So far I have looked at Familysearch.org and have not found anything.Any other ideas other than my reasearcher who is very good but not to cheap !!
