Re: Traced back to Germany?
Thanks for the response.I am very interested what you might find.In the event it helps at all I have some additional information on Anna Rosalie Henrietta Stecher
(the daughter of Marie Elisabeth AURIN) that was in the Hymnal.
She was married to Herman Berndt at the CHAPEL OF ST SIMON (SIMON KAPELLE) in Berlin on October 25, 1881. I have not been able to determine the church's location or even if the church still exhists.
They had 7 Children
Otto Berndt b. 31 May 1882, died 05 July 1982 in Germany (Berlin I believe).
The family immigrated to the USA after his death as
their other children were recorded as being born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA:
Alfred BERNDT b. 02 Sept 1883
Carl Herman BERNDT b. 02 Jun 1885
Hedwig Theresa BERNDT b. 05 Oct 1886
Herman Henrie BERNDT b. 21 Dec 1888
Theresa Franceska BERNDT b. 19 Jan 1891 (my grandmother)
Rosie Lillie BERNDT b. 16 Mar 1896
We have a number of photos of the family and possibly some of their Grandparents Heinrich Stecher and Marie Elisabeth (AURIN) Stecher to compare if needed.Unfortunately the older individuals did not have their pictures labeled so we are not sure who we have.
Looking forward to hearing from you
