Dauber Family Genealogy Forum
Hello Walt. I saw your messages on the Dauber bulletin board at
genforum.geneology.com. I had run into a summary of a pension record from
the War of 1812 that was for a Peter Daubert who was married to Mary
Fry'Frye in 1817 or 1818. It listed his date of death as May 20, 1846. I
wrote to the National Archives to get a copy of the pension records and
will let you know more details if I hear anything back from them.
Was Peter's father named Heinrich and did Peter have a brother named Henry,
Jr? I've been doing research on this line. My great grandfather was Jacob
Mathius Daubert who moved to Philadelphia sometime before 1890 and was
supposedly from the Emmaus area. His father's name was Henry who married
Ann E. (Lizzie?) Swartley. I THINK that HIS father was Henrich Daubert who
married Eleisa Rohrer in 1841 (the birthdates were a little off in the
census records, but this was the closest I could come!). Henrich's
parents, according to christening records were Peter and Catharina Daubert,
but this wasn't your Peter! I think this Peter is the son of Henry
Daubert, Jr., who I'm assuming is the son of Heinrich Daubert and the
brother of your Peter Daubert. Do you have any information on this line?
Some of these things I've documented with birth and christening records,
but others I've pieced together from geographic proximity and approximate
birth dates. I'm going to start writing from church records, etc. to
confirm them but it would save me a lot of trouble if you see any obvious
errors in my path! :-)
I saw in the 1850 census records that Henrich Daubert was a "boadman." Do
you know what that is? I thought it might have to do with the church, but
I hadn't thought of mining. There was also an Elijah Daubert listed in the
same area who was also a boadman.
I would be very grateful if you had any information on any of these people
that you would be willing to share with me! Thank you, and good hunting!
It's hard to do this type of research from Wisconsin!
