Exner Family Genealogy Forum
Looking for info on Freidericke EXNER. A marriage certificate (12-28-1882) between Anton SMITH (SCHMIDT) and Louisa J. SCHIMPF (b. 1858, Buffalo, NY) lists mother of groom as Barbara EXNER and the mother of the bride as Freidericke followed by what looks like ditto marks under Barbara’s last name, therefore EXNER. Need substantiation. SMITH and SCHIMPF lived next door at some time in Falls City, NE. Freidericke’s first daughter, Lena SCHIMPF, married James Albert JOSEPHS on March 10, 1867. The SCHIMPFs are basically buried in Richardson county, Nebraska and were from “geboren in Sachsen” Saxony?, Niedersachsen? (lower Saxon), Prussia, Germany. Staighten me out. If ditto marks are true, then Jacob EXNER is their father from Germany for which I need German records.
Response applies to Jan Hall and Sue Coyle. I have letters (circa 1890-1900) from W 118th St. in New York .
