I don't have anything posted on the web yet, but here' the relationship.

Anthony Harms & Maria Christina Lustman had 6 kids (that I know of): Wilhelm (my great grandfather), Herman, Auguste, August (Charles' father), Hanna, and Mathilda. I don't know if they all traveled together, or when they got to America.

Anthony, August, and Herman are listed in the St. Louis directory in 1886. Mathilda was married to a ??? Pick when she arrived and is buried in St. Louis. Herman is listed as living in San Fransisco in an 1929 obit. Auguste was married twice and is buried in St. Louis. August (May 1908) and Mary (1902) are also both buried here in St. Louis.

The only person who didn't come directly to St. Louis was my relative Wilhelm. He settled in a small town about 35 minutes from St. Louis (Mayestown, ILL). He move to St. Louis in 1900 when his first wife died. He remarried and had 2 more kids, the youngest was my grandfather (William Carl 1904-1988). Wilhelm was apparently the black sheep in the family. While most of the family is buried together, he's buried alone in an unmarked grave.
