I am a descendent of Eduard Windich born in the Saschen Germany area. His son Eduard Carl Windisch fell in love with Auguste Pauline Haas, as the family tale is told.She became pregnant and gave birth to a son.My Great Great grandfather,Robert Gustav Windisch.
Eduard Carl was born in 1820 in the Saschen/SaxonyGermany area.He died 26 Sep 1876 also in that area of Germany. He married Emilie Therese MUELLER sometime after the birth of his son Robert Gustav Windisch.(more later) Eduard Carl and Emilie Therese had the following children: Stillborn Windisch Wilhelmine Windisch Bertha Windisch Maria Hulda Windisch 6 January 1851 In the same area.She married Carl Heinrich Mockel born 19 January 1849.They were married 1 January 1873 in Oberschlemma, Saschen, Germany.I have a copy of the Church records.
Auguste Pauline Haas was born 3 Nov 1843 in Obersclemma, Germany.She died 15 April 1893 in Mt. Olive, Macoupin, Illinois, USA.She married Carl Heinrich Schoenfelder 18 April 1869.The later came to the USA settling first in Iowa the moving to Mt. Olive, Illinois.Robert did go by his step father’s last name until he decided to marry then we went back to his surname of Windisch.
I have a copy of Robert Gustav’s birth stating that.He was born out of wedlock on Dec 8th 1862 and christened on 25 Dec with it stating that Eduard Carl Winisch first denied being the father but later signed the certificate on 29 Dec 1862.
