Seeking information on Gustav (Augustus) Fieger. Born 1833 in Baden, Germany and died 03/23/1893 in Norwalk, Huron Co., OH during a typhoid epidemic. He arrived in NY city the night that Pres. Lincoln was shot (04/15/1865), according to family legend. We don't know what brought him to OH, except after doing some research into the area, it seems that quite a few people that settled the area were also from Baden, Germany. On 01/14/1873 Huron Co., OH, he married Henrietta Rekina Martin. She had been married before (to (?) Ableman) and had one child, Mary (1872-1947.) Gustav and Henrietta had 12 children: Frank, Margaret, Leo, Anthony, Herman, Charles, Louis, Thomas (Aloysius ?), Lucy, Edward, Rose, and Loretta. Most of the children remained in OH but at least one moved on to Niagara Co., NY.
