Hi Jessie -
this post is bout 6 years too late, not sure if you'll get it!
I think Katharina Unger is the great-grandmother of my friend Tom Nordmeyer. His mother, Marian Miller, was the daughter of Johanna Reiner, who immigrated to Hastings NE in 1910 listing her sister Anna as her contact in the USA. She married Frank George Miller and lived in St. Paul MN.

I have tracked Johanna to an immigrant ship which landed 1910 at Ellis Island, where she had arrived from Mosonteteny Hungary which is now Tadten Austria on her way to sister Anna in Hastings, NE.

I'm not 100% positive this will be the same family, but the timing seems correct - although it would appear some of the children came at different times, perhaps left with relatives in Hungary. The three children I've found in the Ellis Island rosters so far, who match part of your list, are Anna who came in 1903 aged 24, Michael who came in 1906 aged 30, and Johanna aged 18 in 1910 - I'm guessing Johanna was the youngest of all the kids.

Have you found anything else out about Katharina?

Thanks
CHris
