Surname Saturday - 35: Schmitt

This week I'm starting on the maiden names of my great-great-great-grandmothers.  At least those that I know. #33 would be next after last week's posting of #31, but I don't know the name of Evert Huigens's mother. Her first name is likely Maria; that's all I've got.

So I'm moving on to my great-great-grandmother's mother.

1. Kevin Joseph HUIGENS

2. Joseph Anthony HUIGENS
3. Shirley Ann OGDEN

4. Joseph Andrew HUIGENS (b. 9 Mar 1891 near Creighton, Knox Co., NE, m. 18 Feb 1914 at St. Ludgers Catholic Church in Creighton, Knox Co., NE, d. 8 Nov 1957 in Rushville, Sheridan Co., NE)
5. Mary Julia KAIN (b. 19 May 1896 in Knox Co., NE, d. 29 Apr 1979 in Rushville, Sheridan Co., NE)

8. John Edward HUIGENS (b. 15 Jun 1862 near Henry, Marshall Co., m. 28 Jan 1884 at St. Mary's Catholic Church, Henry, Marshall Co., IL, d. 12 Apr 1949 in Creighton, Knox Co., NE)
9. Mary FITZLER (b. 22 Feb 1866 in Marshall Co., IL, d. 6 Feb 1949 in Creighton, Knox Co., NE)

16. Evert HUIGEN (b. 6 Dec 1827 in Holland, Netherlands, m. ? in ?, d. 27 Feb 1864 in Marshall Co., IL)
17. Catherine TOEMMES (b. 6 Jan 1827 in Trassem, Kreis Saarburg, Prussia, d. 22 Feb 1899 in Morgan Co., IL)

34. Johann TOEMMES (b. 1790 in Trassem, Kreis Saarburg, Prussia, m. 1815 at St. Hubertus Catholic Church in Trassem, Kreis Saarburg, Prussia, d. ? in ?)
35. Maria SCHMITT (b. 29 Sept 1796 in Trassem, Kreis Saarburg, Prussia, d. 4 Nov 1869 in Marshall Co., IL)

As I posted before, the genealogy of this line comes from on-line an alphabetical listing of births and marriages extracted from the book Zwischen Saar und Leuk 1675-1900 [Between Saar and Leuk]. This book is a compilation of area church records.  I have not taken the time to track down Maria Schmitt's parents.

This is the second of my Schmitt lines.  This first is from the area around Neunkirchen-Seelscheid in the south of North Rhein-Westphalia, Germany.  This line comes from near Trier in Rhineland-Palitinate.

  1. Kevin,

    If I have it correct, my gr-gr- grandfather was Thomas FOX (b. abt 1819). Send me an email (dkohrs@stanford.edu) or give me a ring (831)-425-4901 if you get a moment.

    I am looking for any information on possible siblings Thomas FOX (b. abt 1819) , Mary FOX (b. 29-Sep-1823) and Patrick FOX (b. abt 1827). According to her grave marker, Mary was born in Co. Leitrim. Mary FOX married John KAIN in St. Louis on 2-Jul-1848. In the 1850 US Census Patrick FOX is living in St. Louis with John and Mary KAIN and Thomas FOX is also in that city with his wife, Catherine, and their children. In 1860, Thomas FOX and family are farming in Elk River Twp., Clinton Co., IA and the John KAIN family are right next door.

    I'm looking for evidence that will confirm that Mary, Thomas and Patrick are related, any immigration info or any records of the family in Ireland.
