I am looking for information on Schwind, Gerstenberg & Stock family in Illinois in the 1850's-1880's. Katharina (Catherine, Catharine, Catharina) Schwind was born about 1830 in either Bavaria or Prussia. Katharina (Julia) SCHWIND married August GERSTENBERG b abt. 1829 from Saxe-Weimar Saxony on the 14 Sept 1853 Chicago, Cook, IL. Their daughter Agnes Elizabeth (Louisa) was born in Quincy, Adam County, Illinois 5 Jul 1857 and baptized at the German Evangelical Lutheran St. Johnís Church. (Sponsors Adam & Agnes Koch). Their 2nd daughter Julia Luella was b 26 Jul 1860 St. Louis MO.

August Gerstenberg (John, Johannes) died in 1865 in the Civil War. Catherine remarried Philip Stock from Dettingen, Bavaria, Germany on 3 Jan 1866 Madison County IL. Their son son Phillip was b 20 Aug 1867 (1868) Marine, Madison, IL and daughter Emma was b 28 June 1870 Marine, Madison, IL.

Henry C. GERKE was appointed Legal Guardian for pension purposes for Agnes & Luella. By Oct 1873 Catharine was deceased and Emma was adopted by Wilhelmine & Louis Vetter, and baptized at St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran Church Troy IL. Please contact me if you know of any other Schwind, Gerstenberg or Stock family members in Illinois or the St. Louis area. Thanks!
