Ernst in Perry County, IL
Posted by: Amanda Trill (ID *****4555) Date: March 30, 2012 at 22:49:58

I am researching a family tree for a friend of mine.

Am trying to learn more info on Frank Otto Ernst...here is what I know.

Frank Otto Ernst...

born April 7, 1861, Germany...

Immigrated around 1881 to America...

Married Sarah Jane Davison (this may have been her 2nd marriage) around 1887...

They had 5 known children, Elizabeth 1888, Frank Otto Jr 1892, Hedwig Jane 1896, Theresa Irene 1898, and Hazel Jewel 1900. All children were born in Illinois.

1900 census has them in DuQuoin, Perry County, IL. This is also where Frank Otto Sr. died.

Died March 2, 1906...buried in Nine Mile Cemetery outside DuQuoin.

I am hoping to find the names of his parents and go backward from there. Any help is appreciated!

Thanks!
-Amanda
