Leopold Stoesser and his wife Caroline Hurle lived in Gaggenau, Baden, Germany (map) with their children. The last son was born 4 months after the death of Leopold in 1870. In 1880 Caroline Hurle immigrates to the United States with 5 of her children ranging in age form 18 to 10. One child died at birth and her oldest son travels separately from the family. She arrives in New York on 29 Jul 1880 and she travels to New Albany, Floyd County, IN where she remains until the middle 1880's and then relocates across the Ohio River to Louisville, Jefferson County, KY (map). Eventually the oldest son, John, moves to Chicago, IL and his younger brother, Frederick, moves to St. Louis, MO.
The task on the Stoesser family is to try to extend the line even farther and to fill in information. I don't really have a roadblock on this family.
I am specifically looking for the following information:
- Information on the descendants of John Stoesser and Elizabeth Fein who were in the Chicago area at the time of the 1910 and 1920 census. Especially needed are actual death dates for the children and their spouses and information on the grandchildren.
