HEMMELGARN posted by Cathy Stefiuk on Sunday, October 27, 1996

I am looking for information on the HEMMELGARN history, more specifically the children of Bernard Joseph and Gertrude HEMMELGARN. Perhaps someone knows the address of St. Francis RC Church, possibly in or near Minster? I am looking for a birth or baptism record of my great-grandfather, Charles HEMMELGARN, born about June 30, 1876 or 77.

I am in need of the names and/or addresses of Roman Catholic churches that were around in the 1870-1880 in Gibson Twps., Cranberry Prairie,and Burkettsville. Also is there a St. Francis Church in any of these places? Need birth record of Charles HEMMELGARN. Any help would help me. Thanks.

MOHRMAN, TANGEMAN posted by Anne Tangeman on Friday, November 1, 1996

My ggg grandfather and ggg grandmother came to America in 1830. At least that is the time frame, my sister and I have right now. They settled with their family in Mercer Cty., Ohio where our gg grandfather, Andres Johnnas TANGEMAN, was born on 21 Jan 1833. His parents were Johan Gerhard and Anna A MOHRMAN TANGEMAN. The family moved to Clayton Cty., Iowa in 1847, perhaps earlier. There is a story about the family leaving behind a son named Henry because the parents felt they could not feed all of the children. I would like to find out exactly when and how the TANGEMANs got to Mercer Cty, Ohio. And the port they came in at and the ship name. I am interested in knowing if there were other Germans in the area that they settled in and if so, is that why the TANGEMANs went there? Also, did they own land in Mercer Cty., Ohio? I will be glad to share the info I have. Thanks.

LENARTZ, LENORD, PRICE, WEIS posted by Penny Weaver on Tuesday, November 12, 1996

WEIS and LENARTZ (or LENORD, etc.) in Mercer County from at least 1850. Possibly earlier. G-g-grandfather Joseph WEIS and wife (Mary) Christiana LENARTZ were members of St. Joseph Catholic Church; Victoria (Twp.?). Had 11 children; a possible brother was Nicholas WEIS. Looking for any info. Mercer Co. records not too plentiful for me. Have checked Mercer Co. history: a son, Joseph, helped settle Coldwater - 1st mayor; another son, T.A., was a Mercer Co. auditor late 1880's. My g-grandfather was son of John H. WEIS who married Isabell (Nellie) PRICE. Any info will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
