Please Help with my Prinz line
Posted by: Gary Gideon (ID *****3983) Date: March 02, 2007 at 08:30:37
  of 38

This has been a very difficult line for me to research. This is ALL that I know. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


On my Grandmother: Anna Maria Prinz
Name: Anna Maria PRINZ
Birth Place: Jimbolia, Romania, Hungary ??
Sex: F
Birth Date: August 27, 1877
Death Place: Cincinnati, Ohio
Death Date: February 05, 1956
Spouse: Alexander George GIDEON
Marriage Place: Ellis Island
Marriage Date: bef. 1910

On my Grandfather:
Name: Alexander George GIDEON
Sex: M
BirthDate: May 12, 1863
DeathPlace: Cincinnati, Ohio
DeathDate: June 15, 1951
Spouse: Anna Maria PRINZ
Marriage Place: Ellis Island
Marriage Date: bef. 1910

Children of Alexander George Gideon and Anna Maria Prinz are:
1. Anna B. Gideon, b. January 29, 1918
2. Anthony M. Gideon, b. July 17, 1910 m. Lyda
3. Catherine Anne Gideon, b. January 30, 1920 m. James Littell
4. George Matthew Gideon, b. September 26, 1914
5. John Charles Gideon, b. September 24, 1912 m. Miriam Jean Boweman
6. Lina Gideon, b. March 15, 1916 m. Herbert Zapf
7. Maria Theresa Gideon, b. May 30, 1922
8. Michael Edward Gideon, b. May 16, 1924

Note: it's rumored that my grandfather started spelling his name differently when he arrived in the US before 1910. maybe due to difficulty in pronouncing it. I've seen it spelled as Geteon or Geton on either a house deeded to him in Cincinnati, Ohio or on a birth certificate of one of his children. He appearantly descended from Germany. It's also rumored that he may have left a family (Wife Sony and 5 children in Germany) behind when he departed.

Sources for Alexander George Gideon:
GarysFamilyTree, Alexander George GIDEON arrived a few years before Anna Maria Prinz.

Sources for Anna Maria Prinz:
GarysFamilyTree, Note: uncertain of any information on her parents and where she actually derived from. Last name could possibly be spelled differently. Supposedly she had a brother or uncle named Nicholas who lived in Cuba, and also a sister or aunt who lived in Chicago.
