I am hoping to find out who the parents of Gustave Tessmer are.
Gustave’s father may be Chris Tesmer/Tessmer. B: abt 1805 Prussia.
This Chris Tesmer/Tessmer also had a Dtr. named Henrietta, who married Theodore Dobbeck. Chris (age 75), with wife Caroline (age 54), and son Gustave (age 15)
lived with Henriette (age 25)and her husband, Theodore Dobbeck (age 32) in 1880.
These 5 people all show born in Prussia. They lived in Town of Excelsior Twp., Sauk Co., WI
But as far as this being the correct Gustave Tessmer, I have no proofs. Only a guess based on where they were living.
1880 US Census for Theodore Dobac. (Name should be spelled Dobbeck)
All below were in the same household. Theodore Dobac was head of household.
Town of Excelsior, Sauk Co., WIJune 14, 1880
Dobac, Theodore W, M, Head age 32, Farmer, Prussia, Parents Prussia (born 1848)
Dobac, Henrietta, W, F, Wife, age 25, Wife, Prussia, Parents Prussia
Dobac, Minnie, W, F, age 2, Dtr, born WI, parents Prussia.
Dobac, Augusta, W, F, age 1, Dtr, born WI, parents Prussia.
Tesmer, Chris, W, M, age 75, Father in law, Farmer, Prussia, parents Prussia.
Tesmer, Caroline, W, F, age 54, Wife, Prussia, parents Prussia.
Tesmer, Gustave, W, M, age 15, Brother in law, Prussia, parents Prussia.
Hoping to find out who Gustave and Louise Tessmer’s daughters married.
Hoping to find new cousins.
Maybe find other pictures of them. I have two pictures of Gustave and Louise.
One with Nettie, Walter, Gerhart, and also their Niece Alvanina Kruger, the Daughter of Frederick Kruger.
And one image of the two of them, with son Walter.
Would like to find copies of pictures of daughters Louise and Edna Tessmer.
I descend from Christian G. Kruger and his second wife, Dorothea (Wichman) Zobel.
