Speculations about Relationships

events that appear to belong to one unique individuals color-coded:

Joseph Hamerschlag brother (or half-brother???) of William Hamerschlag son of Albert Hamerschlag and Regina Mayer

Joseph Hamerschlag husband of Bertha Rosskopf (same person as brother of William Hamerschlag???)

Joseph Hamershlag son of Albert Hamerschlag and Julie Werner and husband of Helen Strouse

    

 

Joseph in Baltimore

Joseph in New York

Albert

1840s

Joseph Hamerschlag, brother of William Hamerschlag, born about 1845 in Bohemia

William was the son of Albert Hamerschlag and Regina Mayer.  Did his brother Joseph have the same mother or was he the son of Albert Hamerschlag and Julie Werner?

Are the two Alberts the same person?

 

Albert and Regina Hamerschlag are parents of children in Bohemia, including Adolph b. 1829, Ernst, William b. 1841, Joseph b. 1845

1850s

 

Joseph Hamershlag born 1855 Austria, son of Albert Hamerschlag and Julie Werner.

Emigration: Jos. Hammerschlag Occupation Boy, Age 7, Arrived 5 Oct 1866, Origin Germany, Port Hamburg, Last Residence U, Destination USA, Plan Unknown, Ship Saxonia

1868 Trowe's Directory--
 Hamerschlag, Joseph, refiner, 148 Chatham (same address as Judel Hamerschlag)

Joseph Hamershlag born 1855 would have been 13 years old.

Cracower Ladies Society (incorporated February 27, 1868)
Trustees: 
Joseph Hamershlag, treasurer Judel Hamerschlag

Perhaps Joseph the refiner and Joseph the trustee are not the same person as the Joseph who married Helen Strouse

Sept. 1868 a Joseph Hammerchlag born NY

Feb 15, 1866--Theresia and Henriette Hamerschlag arrived in NY on the same ship as Fannie Brummel, future wife of William Hamerschlag.  Coincidence or were they traveling together?

5 Oct 1866, Joseph Hamerschlag, age 7, arrives in NY

26 Dec 1866--Sophia and Emilie Hamerschlag, sisters of Theresa and Henriette, arrived in NY

1867 New York directory:Hammerschlag Albert, h 818 Tenth.

1878 Baltimore Directory: Hammerschlag, Joseph, engineer, Monument e of Broadway

In 1870, the census lists an Albert Hamillsack?, a liquor dealer, in New York. He is listed as 50 years old, born in Bohemia. Also born in Bohemia and living in his household are Theresa (age 21), Henrietta (20), Emilia (17), Joseph(14), and Sophia (11). This Joseph would have been born about 1856.

Is this the same Albert as William's father?  How were Theresia and Henrietta related to William?  Was it coincidental that they were traveling on the same ship as Fannie? 

Henriette Hamerschlag married Moritz Falkenau between 1870 and 1873.
