Re: Hey Lori!

It was neat to see my name in the subject title.I haven't found much more since we last talked, but I do have an update on my immediate family.I still haven't connected them to any other Hartlebens out there, but here are the people I do have:
A search of the 1920 Census reports for Rochester, NY lead me to find my great-grandparents, grandfather, and great-great grandparents all living in the same home.
Louis Hartleben b. abt 1851 in Hamburg, Germany married Caroline b. abt 1852.Caroline's parents were listed as coming from Mecklenberg, Germany (please excuse the spelling...I haven't looked up to see if it is "berg" or "burg").Louis reported his parents as being from Hamburg (father) and Mecklenberg (mother).Louis was a shoemaker in Rochester, NY.They emigrated in what appears to be 1880 and became citizens in 1885.Both Louis and Caroline lived past early 1920 (obviously).
The following information is from either family history reports or the 1900/1920 census reports:
Louis and Caroline had at least 7 children:
John Hartleben (b. 1892, d. Jan 1946) Rumor has it he was born in Hamberg,NY, but I really believe that is just a rumor.John married Loretta Bartels sometime around 1918.They were living with John's parents in Rochester, NY in 1920 with their young son John Hartleben (my grandfather).
Emma Hartleben (b. ?, d. ?) There was an Emily Hartleben living in Manhattan in 1920, but I don't have any proof that she is related (thought you'd like to know though).
Frank Hartleben (b. ?, d. ?)
Bertha Hartleben (b. 3/29/1884, d. September 1971) married Craver and had 7 children.Bertha passed away in Rochester, NY.
Arthur Hartleben (b. 3/22/1895 in Rochester, NY, d. 5/19/1959 in California)married Isabell Buchanan (b. 6/19/1897 in Candendagua, NY, d. 12/18/1969 in California)This family group was living with Isabell's mother in 1920 in Rochester, NY.They had two children, one of which is the father of the "Hartleben" that is listed in the credits of several movies (if you do a Hartleben search).I am not sharing their names at this point since they are all living.
Louis Hartleben Jr. (b. abt 1897, d. ?) married Rosebud (???...that is what the name appeared to be in the census)(b. abt 1898 in Connecticut).Louis and Rosebud were living with Louis's parents in 1920.
Unknown Hartleben (b. ?, d. in an auto accident sometime before 1926)
Mystery people:There were two children listed on the 1920 census living with Louis and Caroline (ages 69, 68).They were listed as "son" and "daughter" of Louis and Caroline, but that is HIGHLY unlikely since they were ages 7 and 4.One was Dorothy Hartleben (age 4, born in Rhode Island) and the other was Earnest Hartleben (age 7 born in NY).My father told me that he thinks that Dorothy Hartleben was the "famous bowler".He doesn't know who's child she was though or how she was living with her grandparents.She could be the daughter of Louis Jr. and Rosebud. I am currently searching for more information on this line as we speak.
Anyway, you asked if i had found any additional information...
There is also a family starting with Fredrick Hartleben (b. 1857 in Germany)married to a Minnie (b. 10/1857 in Germany.They settled in Rochester, NY and had 7 children.I have more information on the one of their son's families.I have not linked my Louis Hartleben to Fredrick Hartleben, but I suspect that there is probably a connection.I am also searching for more on this possible connection.
So, would you say that was enough extra information LOL!
Hope to hear from you soon,
