Search for Engisch Family in US/Germany
My grandmother was Emma Augusta (Engisch) Wolter (b. 29 Dec. 1884 in W. Prussia Germany).Emma married Herman Edward Wolter (b. 4 Apr. 1887 in Beecher, IL)Emma and Herman Wolter raised 7 children (Alfred, Delilah, Edna, Gladys, Albert, Pearl and Arthur on their farm in Breckonridge, Minnesota.
Emma's parents were Ernst Engisch and Ernestina (Max) Engisch.Emma came to America on the deck of a ship with her parents when she was only 3 years old.This means they probably immigrated to America in about1881.I would like very much to locate the Engisch family in America and to trace it back through Germany as well someday.
I have no idea who Ernst's parents were, but Ernestina's parents were Martin Michael Max (b. 1841 in Germany) and Carolina (Bachmann) Max (b. 188 in Germany).
Carolina Bachmann's parents were Carl Bachmann and Marie (Bauer) Max. - (Both born in Germany)
I am not sure how many of the Bachmann's and Max's came to America with Ernst and Ernestina in 1881, but know that Carolina (Bachmann) Max was eventually in America.My mother remembered taking care of her great Grandma Carolina in her old age when she went blind.
I would appreciate hearing from anyone who is also an Engisch descendant (or Bachmann, Bauer, or Max) or anyone who knows the family history.My e-mail is TheDarland@Yahoo.com
