SCHAMBACH family in Covington, KY & nearby Ky & Ohio, late 1800s & early 1900s
I would like to contact anyone descended from the SCHAMBACH family who emigrated from Bensheim, Hesse Darmstadt, Germany at various times in the late 1800s and/or early 1900s.
I have found a record of 6 children (of Jacob SCHAMBACH and Katherine BEST) who were born in Bensheim and emigrated to Kenton Co.,KY, Campbell Co.,KY and Cincinnati, Ohio.
Names were: George, (b 1865 ).....Mary, (b 1870-d 1953) married to (unknown) MABIUS.....Philip, (b 1872-d 1938)..... Barbara, (b 1874).....William J, (b abt 1876).....and Catherine, (b abt 1884).
I have been researching the SCHAMBACH family of Bensheim for the past 2 years. My greatgrandfather was Georg SCHAMBACH, b 1824 to Johann Theobald and Katharine (DORN) SCHAMBACH. Georg emigrated in the mid 1800s and settled in York Co., PA.
I would like very much to find out where the Kentucky and Ohio Schambachs fit into the lists that I have found of the "old" family.
Thanks so much for reading this! I'd love to hear from a relative!
