Dec 1999: Surnames: FUCHS, BURCH, DIEHL, STIRN, GROSSART, TOEPFER
Seeking any information on our grandmother, Anna Marie FUCHS, who
married Enoch Arden BURCH in St. Louis, MO on 10/19/1886. Her Death
Certificate for 9/31/1941 states that she was born in Belleville, IL on
6/4/1872, however, her parents are stated as unknown. Enoch and
"Annie" lived most of their lives in Missouri, but died in Quincy, IL.
Our research has indicated that "Annie" was a daughter of Louis FUCHS
and Caroline DIEHL FUCHS, however, a visit last week to Belleville
indicates earlier research to be in error. I found:
1) Louis FUCHS -- b 10/27/1828 in Baden, Germany -- d 4/23/1895 in
Belleville, IL -- md 12/6/1853 in Belleville
2) Caroline DIEHL -- b 1837 in Wurttemberg, Germany -- d 9/30/1890 in
3) Louisa FUCHS -- b 1854 in Belleville, md Conrad STIRN on 8/19/1883
in Belleville, moved to NY
4) Gustavius F. FUCHS -- b 7/22/1856 in Belleville, d 2/21/1936 in
5) Frederick FUCHS -- b 1858 in Belleville, moved to Missouri
6) Charles FUCHS -- b 1862 in Belleville, moved to Missouri then
7) Alfred Louis FUCHS -- b 1867 in Belleville, d 11/30/1904 in
8) Anna E. FUCHS -- b 1870 in Belleville, md Jacob F. Schmidt on
3/10/1893, moved to Texas
9) Meta Emily FUCHS -- b 6/18/1869 in Belleville, md Charles A.
GROSSART on 9/9/1893, d 7/16/1903
Louis FUCHS' parents were Frederick and Louisa FUCHS, b 1801 and 1804
in Baden, Germany -- d in Belleville. Louis FUCHS had brothers, also
in the Belleville area:
1) Charles FUCHS -- b in Germany, md Louise Loser on 5/31/1853 in St.
2) Gustave Emil FUCHS -- b 6/5/1838 in Germany, md Anna TOEPFER of St.
Louis, d 2/8/1923 in St. Clair Twp.
3) Conrad FUCHS -- b 7/31/1848 in Germany is possibly another brother.
I have considerably more information regarding the FUCHS family, and am
anxious to share information with anyone else researching this rather
large family. As it appears that 8) above is not our grandmother,
hopefully someone has knowledge which will reveal the Anna Marie FUCHS
we're searching for. Please contact Arthur J. Burch
