Patricia A. (Jacob) Frazer 28 Mar 1998
I am looking for information on the following surnames: JACOB, KOEPPE, HEIGELE (Freeburg, IL to St. Louis, MO), COX, PRENTICE, PAUBEL, YEAGER (JEAGER), ST. ONGE. The last three generations of these families have been in the St. Louis City/St. Louis County (Melrose, Grover, Gumbo, Pond, DesPeres) areas. I have information back to my great grandparents (except for JACOB). Here's what I have (abbreviated version):

JULIUS JACOB (wife unknown - may have been MARTHA) had my grandfather, RAYMOND HENRY JACOB (do not know any brothers/sisters names). He married my grandmother, LYDIA EDITH KOEPPE (I have most of her brothers/sisters). Her mother's maiden name was ANNA HEIGELE (I don't know her husband's first name, but she had a sister named KATIE HEIGELE). That's as far as I have with the HEIGELE side other than they were originally from Germany and settled in Freeburg, Illinois somewhere around 1880-1893. Raymond and Lydia had two sons, Harry and Raymond, Jr. Raymond, Jr. was my father. He married CAROLYN FRANCES COX, daughter of MARY CECELIA ST. ONGE COX.

JULIUS VALENTINE PAUBEL (1848-1909) was married to EMILY (JEAGER) YEAGER (1854-1931) and they are buried at Antioch Baptist Church cemetary around Babler State Park. Julius and Emily are believed to come to the U.S. from Germany on "the boat" (that's all the info I have on that). They settled in Grover, Missouri. Julius was a veteran of the Civil War (for the South) and probably farmed after settling in Grover after the war. One of their children was Caroline Frances PAUBEL (my great grandmother) (I think she had a sister named TILLIE PAUBEL who may have been married to an ANDY KERN). Caroline Paubel married CHARLES ST. ONGE. I know that around 1936, she lived on Russell Blvd. in the city and he ran a farm in DesPeres, MO (according to family it was the land behind where the DesPeres 14 Cinema now sits around I-270 and Manchester Rd.). I believe someone in the PAUBEL or ST. ONGE part of the family also had farm out by Babler State Park. Out of the marriage of CAROLINE and CHARLES came my grandmother, MARY CECELIA ST. ONGE. She married GEORGE EDWARD COX. I can trace this part of the COX family to ??? COX who would have been born around 1860 and was married to ABBY(or ABBIE or ABIGAIL) PRENTICE (Aug 1863 - May 1951).
On the ST. ONGE side also, I have THEODORE VALENTINE ST. ONGE (8/15/1836-4/19/1919 -- adopted into the ST. ONGE family - birth name supposed to have been MARQUEX and was born possibly in Canada and adopted in possibly North Dakota). Theodore was married to KUNDIGUNDY (aka. Catherine) (1845-1915) (Maiden name unknown - my grandmother said she may have been of Native American descent). Theodore and Catherine are also buried in the cemetary at Antioch Baptist Church. They settled in St. Louis in 1856 and to Melrose (St. Louis County) soon thereafter. THEODORE was in the Union Army during the Civil War. THEODORE and CATHERINE had CHARLES ST. ONGE (I know nothing more beyond his first name -- brothers/sisters names, if any, would be nice). CHARLES married CAROLINE PAUBEL. Charles farmed and made a living as a blacksmith around Gumbo, MO.

This is what I have so far. Can anyone out there help me. I'm just getting started and I really am getting overwhelmed and not sure how far I want to go with this. I am willing to share any info I have, as well. Please contact me Thanks!

Alberta Fanning Barry 24 Mar 1998
I have been searching for a Maude Yaeger who lived in St. Louis, Mo. in the 1930-1940's. I have a picture of her standing in front of a beautiful fountain that was said to be in St. Louis. A picture of my Grandmother was taken at the same time. My grandmother was Ophelia Nancy Grim (Fanning). She was born in 1896 in Berryville, Ark. A picture of my father was also taken at the same time. I presume that Maude Yaeger was born around 1890-1900's, because her age looked to be simular to that of my Grandmother. My father always told us that Maude and the Fanning's were cousins. I have been searching to see if this was so. Family surnames of our family were---Thorne, Grim, Bigerstaff, Newton, Borman, Howard, Frazier, Davis, and Howard. I sure hope you can shed some light on this for me. If you do know of this Maude, I will send you a photostatic copy of the picture in case you would like to see the fountain, etc. Thank you very much for any help you might be.

I'm tracking my Great-grandfather, James D. Williams who was murdered in Bridgeton, St.Louis county between 1875 and 1880. He had a St. Louis Teaching Certificate dated 1875 and the following article is reproduced from a clipping from a St.Louis newspaper. I don't know the date of the article and hope to find it and find the obituary which corresponds. Thanks

NEWSPAPER ARTICLE

Death of James D. Williams

BRAINED WITH A PALING
Brutal Murder Committed at Bridgeton, St. Louis County.


A terrible murder occurred at Bridgeton, St. Louis County last night. It seems that there had been bad feeling for some time between the whites and blacks in the neighborhood of Bridgeton, which was increased by reports that some white men were going to clean out the negros, who are said to be of the worst character. Williams, a school teacher at Bonfils Station, and Mitchell Revoir, a Frenchman, living near there, coming from Clayton to Bridgeton, went into the store kept by Jacob Bloom to get a drink. While there a quarrel arose between Revoir and a negro named Valentine Walker, over some dispute they had at election time. They came to blows and Revoir was threshing the negro, when others interfered, and Bloom pulled Revoir into his store and shut the door. Walker then turned to Williams and said, "Here is the other son of a _____ let's kill him." and pulling a paling from the fence beat his brains out. After killing Williams Walker returned to the store, and pushing the door open, struck Revoir on the head several times with a stone, injuring him probably fatally. From fear of the negros no one would arrest Walker, and he defied the village until late last night, but left before the constable arrived from Florissant and is still at large. He is described as a mulatto about five feet high, twenty-five years old, black hair, whiskers, mustache and goatee, blue flannel shirt, jeans pants with white buttons, shoes much worn. The murderer is most brutal in character, as Williams is said to have been an inoffensive old man. Williams died instantly, and Revoir is not expected to live. It is thought that the murderer was seen in East St. Louis last evening about 6 o'clock. Those who saw him describe him as tall, with faded blue clothes and a sort of a half-negro - - - - (copy of newspape article ends here).

Supposedly Alma died in his middle age and is buried somewhere on the west coast in California. I am happy to share all info.

Wilhelmina EGGERS (of Bockenem, Hannover) had these siblings:
Johanne Friedericke Christine 1827
Johanne Marie Luise
Carl Heinrich Wilhelm
herself
Dorothy Caroline
Heinrich Carl
Wilhelmine Antoinette Amalie 1842.
I doubt that she emigrated alone.

Wilhelmina EGGERS (of Bockenem, Hannover) married Herman ZAKRZEWSKI (of Berlin) in St. Louis in 1858. Herman died in 1908. 'Mina' signed documents in his probate file as recently as 1910, then disappeared. I looked for kids or grandkids on the chance that she moved in with them, found none. I checked the Post-Dispatch funeral notices 1910-1917. I checked the records of Holy Ghost Ev. Church, where I find only his death records. I checked Gatewood
(UGH!) Cemetery records, found him, not her. I checked for a death certificate. I think she was too old (b. 1833) to re-marry, but checked anyway. I think she was too old to emigrate back to Hannover. This is related: Herman's estate was valued at $3000 gross, less a $2000 mortgage ontheir house. The lawyer for the estate was Theodore C. Eggers, who had been Circuit Attorney (1896). Does a major lawyer take on a piddling estate? Maybe, if it is for family. Theodore (11 Jan 1872, St. Louis - 24 Jun 1953, St. Louis) was a son ofHenry C. Eggers (d. 1891, St. Louis) of Hannover and Doretta ULRICH (d. Apr 1902) of Germany. (Henry had come to St. Louis in 1849, served in the 7th MO Cav.) Theodore 'graduated from Washington U. Law School 1891' (but Wash. U. knows nothing of him!). In 1904, he married Adelaide Koenig; they had two daughters, later Lisette SCHAMBURG and Adelaide KRUEGER. Why would so prominent an attorney take on a piddling probate unless he was family? Please, what happened to my great-grandma?

We are interested in knowing more about the life of John Frederick August Krause, Born 2 Aug 1817 in Schlawe, Pommern, Prussia, and died 10, Oct 1901 in St. Louis, St. Louis, Co., M0. He is a relative who pioneered the plumbing business in St. Louis with his step-son, Frederick Abel. They are reputed in family history to have been wealthy while doing business in St. Louis. We would like to know more about his life in St. Louis. His daughter came west with the Mormon Pioneers from Denmark, and through misunderstandings, did not make it back to her family in St. Louis. The daughter was Wilhelmina Krause Madsen. He finally found her in Utah when he was 70 years old. We would like to know where John F. A.

Please tell me you have heard these names in your ancestry. I am looking for German Catholic Ancestors with the following names: Antony Baker born in Germany died in St Louis and his wife Elizabeth Borgers/Borchers Baker. They had several children but only one is known to me his name is August J. Baker born 06 Sept 1855 and died on 20 June 1919 in Ky and Buried in St Joseph Cemetery in Cincinnati, Ohio. August was a cook on the Greenline, a boat that traveled the Ohio River. Family stories have it that many of his siblings chose a life with the church becoming either priests of nuns. When August came to Greater Cincinnati to live he married a widow by the name of Agnes Weimer. Together they had my grandmother Augusta Carolina Baker, August was 41 at the time of her birth, which leads me to believe he may have been married in St Louis prior to the marriage of Agnes. If anyone has any info on this family please let me know. I have not had luck with census info as of yet, or if anyone could help me locate areas of town which were predominately German Catholic in the 1850's it just may give me an avenue to pursue. Can't seem to get this line back any further. Help! I'm drowning. Thank you.

I found an old letter in my aunts attic. It is from my gr gr grandmothers cousin who lived in St. Louis in 1869. She is sending it to Annie Bentz who lived in Steubenville, Ohio.Here is a copy of the letter .

Miss Annie Bentz
Steubenville Ohio

June 10, 1869

Dear Cousin,
It is over three months since I received your kind and welcome letter. I was sorry I neglected writing soon after receiving it but now other duties claim my attention so I have neglected my correspondance. However I will try to make amends for it. I have been Mrs. Wm H. Smith for 8 months. Was married last Oct 15th 1868. I married a widower with 3 children. 2 girls & a boy. Gussie is in her 13 year. Georgie her 10 year and Martin is 8 hears old. As you see they are able to look after themselves. I have an excellent husband, sober, honest and industrious. What more could a woman want. He is very domestic. Whenever his work is over he is at home with his family and has no desire to run out at night. I always accompany him when he does go out. His trade is a good one (stonemason) sometimes he takes very large contracts for the county and he is doing well. He has property in Minnesota his former home. Has a nice farm with a good house on it and well improved and whenever I am ready to go to St Paul to live that is my home. He promised me before we married he never would take me out of St. Lous while my mother lived and I never will go. 36 years is his age. Mine 30. I think that a good difference. He is German. Full blooded. Was 15 years old when he left his home. I guess I won't talk much German though. Will has been all through the Indian Wars and the War with our own country and is well posted. Has travelled a great deal so is at no loss to entertain his family in the evening. I will not say more now in regards to my husband but hope at some future day you may see into our little happy home. My mothers health is better than it has been for years. Although she is far from being well. My leaving home has been a blessing to her as regards her health for now she has no time to brood over her sickness. She misses me very much but I try to visit her twice a week. I am four miles from her but can go right to her down in the street cars. Papas health is failing. He has to work to hard. And has as much as he can do. My sisters boys are still with Ma. It seems their Pa is not going to take them home. I don't know what he means for it is a great care to my mother to look after them. Their sister Minnie has a boy. He must be 3 months old now. You thank me for my photograph. You are welcome and sometime I shall send another and also one of my husband. I would like so much to have one of your father and mother. It would please Papa too, to have one. He often speaks of your family.When did you hear from the Wingherts or Sailors? I wrote to both families some months ago enclosing my photograph but never received any reply. I hope you may soon pick up as good and loving a husbund as I have cousin Annie and come to St. Louis on your wedding tour. Until we get a peep at you and your choice, St Louis is a gay city. At present nothing is in vogue but strawberry festivals and promenade concerts & picnics. And where I live is a lively place for picnics on Sunday. The Germans coming out Sunday to the grove opposite my house and have music and dancing all day. Which I don't approve of by any means. Hoping to soon hear from you. I will close this poorly written letter by sending much love to all the family, self included.
>From your affect-
Cousin Mrs. M. A. Smith
