Letter dated 3, June 2001

....short history

My grandfather John(Johann) Schweigert and his father, mother and 5 other brothers and sisters came over on the S.S. George Washington from Bremen, Germany Nov.8, 1910.... arriving at Port of New York Nov. 16, 1910. The family moved to Eureka, South Dakota.

My grandfather later married Regina Feist and moved to Zeeland, North Dakota. Here is were I run into problems.

1. I am not sure if or when my grandfather changed the spelling of his last name. Ship log spelled it Schwaigert... my grandfather spelled it Schweigert. any clues on how to go about finding out if it was a miss-spell on the shipping log or if it was actually changed.

2. I do know that they are from Alexanderfeld, Russia; but, how do I figure out which one they are from. According to the records there are 22 villages in Russia with that name. any ideas would be appreciated

....I have a few corrections for you on the Kraenzler family. Johann Kraenzler died in Russia and not N.D., USA. Rosina Eichelberg was born November 25, 1868, not 1869.  My grandfather, Christian Roesler married Rosina Eichelberg Kraenzler in Russia.  I remember my father, Christian Roesler, Jr. talking about that and I also talked to my cousin that was a daughter of Caroline Kraenzler and she said that her Granfather Johann Kraenzler died in Russia. She also told me that John Deg was the son of Conrad and Anna Marie Ulrich Pahl, instead of Johannes and Karolina Kuebler Deg. These are her grandparents. Do you by any chance have any of the family history of the children of Johann Jakob Kraenzler, Marie Kraenzler (her husband's name is Daniel not Samuel.  I have that right off her obit), or Katharina Kraenzle Gaub?  I have most everything from Caroline and Rosinea but I am lacking on the rest.."

To Whom It May Concern:

I am a direct descendant of Melchior Auernig (Kristine Schweikert)  and I have noticed that you have spelled the surname "Auering".  It is correctly spelled "Auernig"  and never has been "Auering".  Please make the correction to the website so that when my family searches for their last name it is listed correctly.

To whomever:

I just came across the genealogy for the above family, and have some corrections to submit.  I'm not sure you are the one to write to, but if so, here is the information I have.

I am Eleanor J. Obwald Bacon,  the daughter of Erna Miller Obwald, who is the daughter of Carolina Schweikert Mueller and Johann Mueller.

Under the listings of Carolina and Johann Mueller their issues,

 #1 Reinhold Miller m Beryl______?  with issues:  Helen Miller, Jack Miller, Caroll Miller, Delvin.

#2Erna Miller m Simon Obwald, issue:  Eleanor J. Obwald, Simon Obwald, Jr.

#4 Hilda Miller m Joe Minter  issue: Danny Minter

I was not aware of this information, just happened on it by mistake.  I could probably update and provide additional data after a little research.

Would appreciate if not you, who could I contact to do this.  This is a very exciting find.

Thank you for your help.

First of all, I cannot thank you enough for compiling all of this info (yeah, I know, you probably had help). My dad's cousin forwarded the info to me as I was trying to put together the "family tree" for the Miller family that united with the Ninnis family (my dad, Reinhold "Jack" Miller and Leah Ninnis). My dad is the first son of Reinhold Miller, Sr. He is listed as the first child of Carolina, nee Schweikert (under Mueller). The two children you have listed as Reinhold Miller m. Emma are incorrect. Those two children are the children of Erna Miller m. Simon (Eleanor is the one that forwarded this info to me). The children of Reinhold are, in order, Helen, Reinhold, Jr (Jack – that is my dad), Carol, and Delvin. Reinhold, Sr. divorced Emma (AKA "Beryl" nee Haynes), and remarried Billie (my step-grandmother) and they had a child, Charles.

The children of "Jack", my dad, and Leah, my mom, are in order, Diana, Gary (me) and Terry. Diana m. Christopher Abel and they have two children, Lucas and Nicholas. Nicholas has a daughter named April. I (Gary) married Karen Yerman and we have two children, Jeffrey and Jennifer. My brother, Terry, married Reona (don't know her last name) and they have no children.

Delvin married Lahoma (don't know her last name) and they had five children, in order: Tracy, Robin, Steve, Cynthia (deceased at age of 10, I believe, on July 11, 1971) and Michele. I can't remember all of my cousin's kids and I do not want to screw up the list.

Helen had two children: Harold and Wade.

Carol had four sons: Dennis, Billy, Michael and Tom (can't remember all of their kids but Billy and Tom are still married.

Hope this helps. I can be reached at (916) 685-2732. I live in Elk Grove, California (just south of Sacramento). I was born January 12, 1954 and can probably give you more info if you wish.
