My great-grandfather and his family came over to Blue Island, IL from Saxony, Germany between 1887 (father: Fred Louis Dost), 1889 (older boys) and 1890 (mother: Selma (nee Bochmann) Dost and younger kids including my greatgrand Arthur Mack Dost). They were from three main towns.
Streckewalde, Sachsen, Germany Zwickau, Sachsen, Germany Leipzig, Sachsen, Germany (briefly lived here before emmogration) and Selma Bochmann's parents were from nearby Stollberg, Sachsen, Germany.
Yesterday I found a Christian Dost and Christliebe Lahlfrom Streckewalde, Sachsen, Germany who had a daughter, Christiana, that was aged to be a sibling to my Fred Louis Dost. This would be great.
Christiana Johanna Dost Birth7 Oct 1847in Streckewalde, Mittlerer Erzgebirgskreis, Sachsen, Germany Death Aug. 12, 1929 in Forestville, Sanilac, Michigan, USA She Married to Herman Seiggert in Mildenau.
Can anyone shed any further light on these folks???
