Expanding on my 12/08/99 message, I am seeking info about the ancestry of my paternal grandmother, Emma Rose Aszmann, b.1868 and d. 1953 in incinnati, OH.
I believe that Emma's father was Conrad Aszmann, who was born in Prussia, Germany.Her mother was Bertha Benneker (questionable spelling), who was born about 1848 in either Tennessee or New York City (according to two different census records).
Emma's brothers were Fred, b. abt 1871, and Albert, b. abt.1869.
According to family lore, one of Emma's ancestors was said to have been the pastry chef to Kaiser Wilhelm in Germany.
I would appreciate any information about this linage.
