FANGMEYER, Maria Carolina
BORN: Apr 27, 1861, Wettrup (parish in Lengerich)
PARENTS: Joseph FANGMEYER
Theresa MERSCHER
EMIGRATION: by 1884
MARRIED: Heinrich LANDMAN

SOURCES:

Maria Carolina's parents' names were on her marriage record at St Francis of Assisi parish. Her age (23) was noted on the baptismal record of her child born in 1885. A sibling was known to have been born in Wettrup so Lenerich parish records were checked and a corresponding birth/bapt entry was found there for Maria Carolina.

FASTABEND

FASTABEND, Gerhard Heinrich
BORN: Aug 20, 1834, Laxten (parish in Lingen)
DIED: 1867 in America
PARENTS: Wilhelm FASTABEND
Maria Adelheid KLEINE
EMIGRATION: 1864 - arrived NY Nov 8, 1864 on the ship George
Gerhard FASTABEND, 30, from Germany
MARRIED: Maria Adelheid SCHNIEDERS
marriage: Apr 20, 1865, St. Louis, MO
SOURCES: Gerhard Heinrich's parents' names were on his marriage record at St. Joseph parish. An entry was found for him in Walter Tenfelde's book Auswanderungen und Auswanderer aus dem ehemaligen Kreise Lingen nach Nordamerika but on that entry (taken from parish baptismal records) the mother's surname was KLEINE while it was HOLTHAUSEN on Gerhard Heinrich's marriage record. Nevertheless, it seems very likely that this identification is correct because his  name is not very common. The mother's surname may have been changed because of a subsequent marriage or for reasons to do with property. The Tenfelde entry says Gerhard Heinrich died in 1867 in America so it will not be possible to find his age on a census to help with the identification. He was in America only 3 years 1864-67 and his death record has not yet been found. Emigration information was from the Tenfelde entry and the passenger list of the ship George on microfilm.

The baptismal record of a sibling was found by chance in Holte parish records while doing research for this project and that provided Lucas' probable place of birth. Denis then asked the Catholic Family Research Facility in Meppen to check that parish's records for Lucas' baptism and it was found there. Lucas'  marriage was at Sts Peter and Paul parish and the children were baptized at the same parish. Death information was from obits in St Louis newspapers and cemetery records.

This ID is not 100% certain but seems likely.
Maria Catharine's approximate year of birth was known from her age (65) at death. Her probable place of birth was known from an emigration index entry thought to have been for her and her children. Holte parish records were checked first for a marriage record which noted parents' names and then for a corresponding birth/bapt entry. Supporting this ID is the fact tht 3 of the 4 children mentioned on the emigration index entry married in St Louis, MO in the late 1860s.
