Gottlieb Kaun
Posted by: B.J. Kreft (ID *****7780) Date: March 04, 2003 at 18:45:25

Am doing a Kreft family tree. Gottlieb Kaun was my grandmother's father, according to her death certificate in Meriden, CT 1930. Grandmother was Albertine (or Albertina) Kaun, who married August Kreft in Germany. They, as a couple, arrived at Csstle Gardens, NY 23 Dec 1881 aboard "Westphalia" from Hamburg. The settled in Meriden, CT, bought a house, started a small grocery store at 78 Lewis Ave, and raised 5 children. Three others died in infancy, and are buried in East Cemetery, Meriden, in unmarkd graves. Grandfather Kreft was a skilled cabinet maker of some reknown. Gotlieb Kaun is listed in Meriden's city directory for the 1st time in 1883. From 1876-1884 he was a member of St. John's Lutheran Church in Meriden. Three years later he's a member of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Meriden, from 1887-1893. His last city directory listing was 1888. At no time is he listed with a spouse, and that's the reason for this search. His wife would be my great grandmother. Any and all help would be appreciated.
