HANGGI - HANKEY 1832 from Solothurn to New York
After searching for 10 years I believe I found my Frederick HANKEY age 48 arriving with no wife and at least 7 children and possibly some neices and nephews after learning that the name could have been HANGGI in Switzerland. The Castlegarden.org website has them all arriving 20 June 1832 from Solothurn, Switzerland. They say their destination is Ohio but I found them in every NY census from 1840-1900 and his daughter's obituary states they came by canal boat to Rochester on 3 July 1831-she may have meant 1832-she was 90 when she died in Rochester, NY. I have a lot of information on Maria Ursula HANKEY KNAPP and her children and spouse because I am directly related to her and have some information on her siblings from her father's Will and Probate and her Probate packet. I am interested in finding out more about her and her parents and siblings. I have not been able to find who Frederick HANGGI/HANKEY was married to before he came to the USA. I have no knowledge of a USA marriage. I'm hoping there is someone else researching this family. Thanks.
