Hello Millie Jordan, there ist no village "Courbessee" existing in Germany. I'm sure that you mean Korbussen in the part of Saxony in Germany. Johann Andreas Ernst was born there in 1784 and he died in 1838. One year after his death, in 1839, his son Heinrich Adolph Ernst, immigrated to the USA, called himself Henry A. Ernst from that time. I am sure that he met Mary Ernst, who was his aunt! Henry lived in Pennsylvania, according to a federal census. Later on he was in Kensington, Illinois, probably. Because of my relationship to him I try to find out more about him. Best regards from Germany, Klaus H. A. Jacob
