Re: Looking For Info: Henry Moeller, 1855 in Germany, Immigrated To NYC abt 1881
I am still looking for information, but here is an update on what I have found so far.
Henry Moeller, aka: Heinrich Möller, was born May 22, 1855 in Gunzenau, Freiensteinau, Vogelsbergkreis, Hesse, Germany.he immigrated to NYC arriving on June 22, 1881 from Hamburg. He married Katherine Schmeissner (from Teinach, Baden-Württemberg, Germany) in Brooklyn, NY on Feb 20, 1884.
From their marriage certificate, I have found that Henry/Heinrich's parents were Caspar Möller and Sybilla or Sybille Dell.
It is believed Henry/Heinrich had either a brother, or newphew named Georg Möller still living in Gunzenau in 1922. in 1921 he applied for a passport to visit Georg Möller of Gunzenau, and set sail to (and subsequently returned from) Germany in 1922.Henry Möller died on August 24, 1932 in Queens, NY.
I am looking for any/all information on his family line. Any information on his parents, if he had any brothers or sisters who may have also immigrated to USA, etc.
Thanks once again in advance for anyone who can provide information.
BTW: Interesting note: There is a Herbert Möller who is the "Local Authority" of Gunzenau (a town or village of just under 200 people). Sadly I have no way to email him as I cannot find an email address for him online.I am guessing he must be a descendant of Henry/Heinrich's relative Georg.
