Just starting to work on my father's side of the family tree. Here is what I know, my gr gr grandfather was Kasper Heinrich Ebbesmeier, born in Germany in 1816, married to Anna Maria Saneke, died in 1890. His son Heinrich Ebbesmeier was born in 1847 in Germany, died in 1917 in the US (we think the name was changed at Ellis Island to Ebbesmeyer). We also think that Heinrich immigrated to the United States with other relatives from his hometown (Paderborn or Westenholtz I think). We've heard stories that the group split up to find better farming and Heinrich landed in Missouri (Florissant when it was just growing up). Heinrich had two wives, Elizabeth Shafers (my great grandmother) and Maria Christine Linneman. Heinrich and Elizabeth had 4 children (2g, 2b) and then Heinrich and Maria had 9 children. My great grandfather was Henry Ebbesmeyer (last son of Heinrich and Elizabeth). He married Angela Grote. My father, Norbert, was the last child born to Henry and Angela.
Drop me a note if any of this sounds familiar!
