Re: Eva Bauer - Alsace to New Orleans 1846
Thank you for your outstanding suggestions about 'my' Eva Bauer !!I really appreciate the time and thought that you put into them, esp since I am new to this ancestor process.
I definitely agree that my Eva Bauer is NOT the same one in Illinois whose parents were Jacob Bauer and Anna Maria Graeser.Apparently that Eva died in childbirth at a young age.Agree that Jacob Huhner died long before 1920 -- still looking for some proof.
The newspaper obit for Eva Bauer Huhner states that she died Jan 29, 1920 at the age of 86, having been a resident of New Orleans for 83 years.So that supports a birth date of 1854; immigration of 1857.The obit lists burial at St joseph #2 cemetery but I cannot find any verifying record yet.It does give the church affiliation as St Mary's Assumption so maybe I can pursue that.
I will follow up on finding her death certificate since I really want some record of her parents.I do believe that she was born in Alsace ~ ?Bavaria[since family lore always indicated that].
Thanks again -- your comments have been a tremendous help!!!
