Ernst - Monroe Co. NY - Rochester, Pittsford, Mendon area

  of 998

I'm looking for any Ernst family in the Monroe County, New York area. My g-g-grandfather William Ernst, a Civil War vet who enlisted in Rochester, came to the US just before the Civil War. He and his wife Wilhelmina came to Iowa after the Civil War. According to William's Civil War records, he was born in the Parish of Belitz, Gross Wustenfelde, Mecklenburg, Germany. William and his wife are buried in Fairview Cemetery, Iowa City next to William's father John. On the LDS website, a patron submitted file indicates a Johann Ernst with same birthdate that is on John's tombstone at Fairview and several children, all born in Gross Wustenfelde, and living in the Monroe County area in the 1800's as follows:

Sophia Magdalena Ernst, b. 1851
Dieterch Heinreth Carl Ernst, b. 1841, m. Sophia Hanna Kossow
Casper Carl Johann Ernst, b. June 26, 1831 (same birthdate as my g-g-grandfather William)
Fredrick Carl Joachim Ernst, b. 1836
Cristoph Fredrick Ernst, b. 1845
Joachim Frederick Johan Ernst, b. 1838, m. Sophia Bauer
Johann Christian Thead Ernst, b. 1837, m. Caroline Roth

Family of Dieterch Heinreth Carl Ernst, b. 1841 that married Sophia Hanna Kossow:
Sophia Ernst, b. 1864
Fredrick Ernst, b. 1868, m. Katherine Sullivan
Charles J. Ernst, b. 1871, m. Ellen Wagner
John Ernst, b. 1873, m. Kate Buckley
Caroline Joshine (Lena) Ernst, b. 1876, m. Frederick Plain
Edward Ernst, b. 1884, m. Clara Anderson
Sarah Helena Ernst, b. 1879, m. William John Ford. Sarah and William had several children including Wilfred Edward Ford, Fredrick Ford, Everett Henry Ford, Raymond William Ford.
