Classification: Query
Surnames: Woellner, McMullen, Roencke
Looking for info on:
Emil Woellner b.1852 in Saxony, Germany
m.Augusta (Roencke?) b. 1852 in Saxony, Germany
Children:
Emma b. 10/20/1880 St Joseph, Missouri d.3/5/1969in LA, CA.
Louis b.1888 St Joseph City,Missouri,d. 1/19/1973 in LA, CA,a baker
Louise b.1894 St Joseph City , Missouri a stenographer, m?
Died?
- I found some of the above info on the 1920 US census.
My great grandmother is Emma. She married Leander Hamman in Missouri (St.Joseph or Galt) and had 4 girls. They were in Los Angeles, California by 1920.
Edna (1902), Helen (1904), Frances (1910), Edith(1911?).
Edith died when she was 11. (The California Death Records for 1940-1997 are incorrect for the girls. Birthplace for Edna and Frances are incorrect, both were born at home in Missouri and Edna's birth date is wrong. She always like to say she was younger than she was).
Helen is my grandmother and married Ray Willard McMullen, he is from Formosa, Kansas.
Edna, married a number of times, no children
Frances, a dentist like her father, never married.
Louis Woellner never married and lived in Los Angeles.
Louise I have no information on.

I am trying to trace Woellner back to Saxony, Germany and the Roencke Family also from Saxony, Germany.Also info on Louise Woellner.
Connecting with the McMullens from Formosa, Kansas would be nice too.
Thanks!

I just happened upon your message that mentioned a Galt, MO. (I read it because I'm also searching for (E. German) ancestors). I noticed a reference to a "Galt, MO". Could you tell me where that is? I have ancestors named Gault/Galt. Thank you. Mark Kiser

If you go to www.mapquest.com you can search for just about any town in the USA. Galt is in the northern central part of Missouri.

Auguste Rönike, my GGgrandmother, came over in 1872 to live with her uncle in St Louis. Frank (aka Heinrich), a baker, and his brother(?), August, a teamster.They spelled their name Roennigke. I have a number of pictures of August's children and as both Frank and August were born 3 years apart and the families seemed close, I am thinking they are brothers.

Most of the above information comes from the census and records on the internet from St. Louis, Missouri. I do have tombstone pictures that verify some of the relationships above.

If this looks close I would love to share notes.
