Re: Reidel family of Partenheim, Hessen-Darmstadt
I have a Philip Reidel (34)that sailed to the US on the Ship Emerald from Hessen-Darmstadt arriving in New York 10/19/1840. He was accompanied by his wife Catharina (34), daughter Catharina (8), son Matice (5), and brother George Philip (21). They settled in Brooklyn township, Cuyahoga county, Ohio. Philip was a blacksmith and George a tailor.
On the 1850 census, Philip is listed as Peter, living on the same street as George. There is another Peter Reidel livng next door with an age of 71 yrs married to Christine. Perhaps the parents?
Could this connect to you?
