I recently located a baptism record for Johann Christian Heinrich Kreis born in St. Louis, MO 3 Aug 1874 to Johann Ulrich Kreis and Maria Hausmann.
I would like to know where these people were from in Germany. Johann was born in Germany in 1850 and emigrated in 1866.
Johann Christian Heinrich Kreis (known in US as Henry)married Henrietta Hausmann Williams who may have been a cousin. They were living in 1911 in Irvington, Essex, NJ.
