Re: Baden to Cincinnati
Posted by: Graydon Gorby (ID *****8958) Date: October 14, 2011 at 10:07:58
In Reply to: Baden to Cincinnati by Richard Robertsson of 57

From the book "Early Nineteenth-Century German Settlers in Ohio (Mainly Cincinnati and Environs), Kentucky, and Other States. Parts 1, 2, 3, 4a, 4b, and 4C" by Clifford Neal Smith

Mr Smith translated and transcribed Volumes 1 through 9 of "Der Deutsche Pioniere, a monthly magazine issued by the Deutsche Pioniereverein (Union of German Pioneers) founded in Cincinnati.

Under the obit of Anton DONNERSNERGER (Volume 2, Page 3 of DDP):
"In 1822 DONNERSBERGER came to Cincinnati by river boat importing tropical fruits and returning to New Orleans with coal and other northern products. While in Cincinnati, he made acquaintance of Johan ZOLLER, an immigrant from Baden in 1815, who had started a truck garden in Storrs Township, where St Michael's Church now stands. ZOLLER's daughter, Marie Eva, born 24 December 1799 in Fordheim, Baden, married DONNERSBERGER in 1824 in the first Catholic frame church, then outside the city limits, where St Francis' Church (1870) now stands."

The above is incomplete but you can find the rest in Google Books.

Richard, do you have any sources for Celicia ZOLLER being the daughter of Johan? I am currently lacking any.
