Hartmann’s Daughter Marries Fischer from Wittenberg
When I saw that there was a Grebing lady who wed Jacob Fischer back in the 1800’s, I figured it was a duo comprised of 2 kids of the initial immigrants. Then I observed that the New york city Group not just consisted of the initial Grebing to go into Perry County, Hartmann Grebing, however there was likewise a Jacob Fischer because group. I figured that Jacob and his other half might have likewise had actually a kid called Jacob, and in truth, they did. Nevertheless, it did not take me long to recognize that Jacob Fischer, Jr. passed away at the age of 2, so he was not going to be getting wed. Ultimately, after much head-scratching, I believe I found out that the Jacob Fischer who wed a Grebing lady was not linked to any of the Fischer’s that became part of the initial migration. Let’s begin by taking a look at the Grebing lady who takes place to be commemorating her 170th birthday today.
Maria Magdalena Grebing was born upon January 30, 1853, the child of Hartmann and Justine (Goethe) Grebing. Magdalena was the 5th of 9 kids born in this Grebing household. She was baptized at Trinity Lutheran Church in Altenburg. We can have a look at her baptism record which is visualized listed below.
Magdalena is discovered in the 1860 census at the age of 7. She is called Mary M. in this entry, and her older sibling is called Mary E. Her dad was a farmer in the Brazeau Municipality.
The only other census in which Magdalena is discovered residing in Perry County was the one taken in 1870. This time she was called Lena.
Magdalena would get wed prior to the next census, so we will now have a look at that confusing guy called Jacob Fischer. He was born upon August 17, 1845. The 1920 census, which will be shown later on, states Jacob was born in Wittenberg, Germany where Martin Luther nailed the 95 theses to the church door to start the Reformation. Perry County had its own Wittenberg that was called after the city in Germany, however that is not where Jacob was born. Later on census entries offer various years for Jacob’s migration, however they were all in the 1860’s. I discovered a couple of Jacob Fischer’s living in St. Louis in 1870, however every one had realities that did not refer this Jacob Fisher.
There is proof that Jacob was wed prior to his wedding event with Magdalena Grebing. His very first other half was Franceska Heineke. Proof for this originates from a death certificate for a kid, Adolph Fischer. Adolph was born in 1871, prior to Jacob married Magdalena Grebing, and this kind states Adolph’s mom was Francesca Heineke. Adolph is discovered in the 1880 census living with Jacob and Magdalena.
There is a bit of proof that Francesca passed away in 1873. My suspicion is that Magdalena relocated to St. Louis to discover operate in the early 1870’s, and it existed that she satisfied the widower, Jacob Fischer, who had a young boy. Jacob Fischer wed Magdalena Grebing on April 15, 1875 at Trinity Lutheran Church in Altenburg. There is in fact a marital relationship record (put there by Rev. J.F. Koestering) in the Trinity books. Ice on Altenburg roadways today keep me from getting that record at the museum, however I can reveal you the transcription for it from the German Ancestral Tree. It states that Jacob was from St. Louis.
[AltenburgMO-Trinity]: Magdalene Grebing wed Jacob Fischer from St. Louis MO on 15 Apr 1875;
There is a civil marital relationship record for this occasion likewise.
4 kids were born to Jacob and Magdalena in between 1875 and 1880. The very first one was born in 1876, a kid called George. If you take a look at George’s later death certificate, it states his mom was Magdalena Grebing.
The 1880 census is the just one in which we discover Jacob and Magdalena together. 3 kids are noted, one from Jacob’s very first marital relationship. One kid was born to this Fischer couple later on in 1880. Jacob was a carpenter in St. Louis. There are other extended relative in this home. Likewise, the entry listed below Jacob’s on this census page was that of Frederick Schade, who was a physician. There were lots of Schade’s in Perry County, however that is not why I included him in this image. I did not discover a connection to Perry County for him.
The kid born in 1880 to Jacob and Magdalena was a boy likewise called Jacob. I discovered his St. Louis birth record. That record is visualized here. If you take a look at the really ideal of this file, you will see that the physician who helped in the birth was Dr. Fred Schade.
Magdalena Fischer passed away in 1882 at the age of 29. Her St. Louis death record is revealed here. It states she passed away of liver disease. Please keep in mind that the physician noted on this kind is when again Dr. Schade.
The above kind states Magdalena was buried in the German Saxon Cemetery, which is most likely Concordia Cemetery, however I did not discover her because cemetery on Findagrave.com.
Jacob Fischer wed yet once again. A household history on Ancestry.com states he wed Theresa Koessel in 1883. I do not understand much about Theresa. There were 4 more kids born to Jacob and Theresa, so the grand overall of kids with Jacob Fischer as the dad was 9. The Fischer home is discovered in the 1900 census with 7 kids noted. Numerous of the young boys were carpenters, like their dad.
The 1910 census reveals a smaller sized Fischer home. Jacob and his boy, Edwin, were still carpenters.
The last census in which we discover Jacob was the one taken in 1920. Simply Jacob, Theresa, and their youngest kid, Clara, were left in their home. This is the census that states Jacob was born in Wittenberg.
Prior to I handle Jacob’s death, let me state that there are many records for Jacob Fischer, his partners, and his kids in the books of Holy Cross Lutheran Church in St. Louis. What is not there are records of his very first and 3rd marital relationships. The only church marital relationship I discovered was the one for his marital relationship in Altenburg.
Jacob Fischer passed away in 1925 at the age of 79. We can have a look at his death certificate listed below. This file does not offer us any assistance in determining Jacob’s moms and dads.
Theresa is still discovered in the 1930 census living with child, Clara.
Theresa Fischer passed away in 1937 at the age of 85. We can likewise see her death certificate.
Jacob and Theresa Fischer are each buried in Our Redeemer Cemetery in Afton. They have among those gravestones that mark the household plot, together with private markers for family members.
I need to confess that the Jacob Fischer in this story showed to be a genuine obstacle for me. In the end, I believe the info I discovered is precise.
Magdalena was Hartmann Grebing’s child. That makes the kids born to her Hartmann’s grandchildren. I do not understand the number of descendants have actually originated from Hartmann. I will not even attempt to count them today. I do understand that another descendant of Hartmann was just recently born in Texas. Shepard Hartmann Grebing, in addition to his bros and his dad, all bring the middle name, Hartmann, in honor of the patriarch of this household. Shepard is Hartmann’s terrific terrific terrific terrific grand son. I may likewise include that Shepard is the grand son of Carla and Kent Grebing.
