So with all the new info I’ve been gathering on the Weber – Erbig – Green sides of my family.  A while ago I put together a timeline of events to sort all the little bits of info out to see patterns in their movements.  I thought I’d share some of the timeline I put together so here it is from what I know till 1900.

Erbig – Green – Weber Timeline

 Circa 1832: Julia Arnold is born in Bavaria, Germany.

 Circa 1841: George Weber is born in Germany. (This is an arbitrary date that I picked based on a guess that he would have been approximately 25 years old when his son Philip Weber was born.  It is unknown if George ever came to America.)

            Katie Green (daughter) age 20, born in NJ, Single, works in Tobacco Factory

            (is this our Green Family? Katie/Katherine’s birth timing is good but who is sister Annie?  Her name could be             different, hard to read on the census. )

                The 1880 Federal Census for Lawrence, Mercer Co., NJ has the family of John Herbig living next door to Philip and Willamta Weber.   We do know that our Philip Weber was married to someone before he married Julia Erbig circa 1901.    This Phillip is a bit younger than ours but information on the Census may be incorrect as I suspect it is as they  list Philip as age 25, wife as 24 daughter as 23 and sons’ as 21 and 17 which obviously is wrong.

1881: Gospill’s Jersey City and Hoboken Directory – 1881

            Michael Erbick, lab,      70 Hopkins av (99.9% that this is our Mike as same address as Charles in 1882 and we know that Charles is correct.  This book is full of little typos   so the “70” instead of “170” doesn’t bother me)

                 Jacob Green, lab,     250 R R av (Street address Confirmed by 1880 Census as Railroad Avenue)

 Circa Spring 1881: Charles A. Erbig and Catherine Green married approximately Spring 1881.

            Michael Erbig, lab, h    170 Hopkins av    (Same address as on the 1880 census) 

            NO JACOB GREEN LISTED – But the 1883 Directory has him on Railroad Ave so it’s safe to say he was  still living there in 1882 since he’s listed there in 1881.

Today is one of those days that it’s great to be a genealogist.  So I was reading my Family Tree Magazine and saw some stuff on a website I’d never visited called pilot.familysearch.org    I’m usually on ancestry.com but thought I’d check it out and see if they had anything new.  And low and behold they did.  My great grandparents are John Kranz (Dec 10, 1872/1873 – After 1920) and Amalia Fabrici (Apr 1876 – around 1928/1929).  On this website I found a record of their marriage that listed the bride and groom’s parents by name.  So married on January 23, 1898 in Manhattan, New York was John Kranz and Amalie Fabrici.  John is the son of Haver Kranz and Elizabeth Hahn.  Amalie is the daughter of Samuel Fabrisi and Sarah Klein.   Wow, I LOVE fillin’ in those blanks on my family tree!

So Haver, that’s a strange name.  I did a little research on line and don’t see this as a usual German man’s name.  So  I did a little more poking around on this same website.  I found a Elisabetham Hahn married to a Franciscum Xaverium Kranz on April 11, 1872 in Bavaria.  Is this our Elisabeth and Haver.  Well Haver could actually be Xavier so maybe.   Great Granpa John was born in 1872/1873 so the timing is good.     So continuing on I found a Joannes Kranz Born Dec 10, 1872 to Elisabethae Hahn and Francisci Xaverii Kranz.   Starting to look good.  To this same Elisabethae and Francisci was born a Catharina Kranz on May 5, 1874.  Both kids born in Bavaria.  Katholische, Arzheim, Pfalz, Bavaria to be exact.

I didn’t have as much luck with Amalie’s folks.  So if you know anything about Samuel Fabrici and Sarah Klein, please pass it on.

Passing over to Mom’s side of the family, I have a 3rd Great Grandfather named Michael Erbig.  I’ve also seen Erbig as Webig, Arbech and on this website as Arbeck.  I found Michael Arbeck on the 1880 census in Jersey City, NJ.  This is my Michael as his wife is Julia (Julia Arnold to be exact).  This may not sound that exciting but this is the first census that I’ve found Michael on.    It lists his occupation as Works in a Paper Mill.  This is what is listed as his occupation on the Jersey City directory, the only source I’ve ever found Michael in.  So, yes, this is cool news.

So onto the Geoghan family.   My Great Greadfather is Thomas H. Geoghan (about 1863 – May 11, 1947).  I’ve never been able to find out who his parents were and I’m still not sure.  But I did find a Thomas Henry McGeoghan born June 15, 1867 in Belfast, Ireland, son of William John Mcgeoghan and Margaret Boyd.  Henry is a common name in the Geoghan family for a few generations.  The problem with Thomas is that we know he was born in Ireland and immigrated when he was very young so he had to have come over with family.  He flies under the radar till the 1920 census.  So is this my Thomas H. Geoghan?  who knows but its a place to start.

 

June 3, 2010 – The Randall Family June 3, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — jgeoghan @ 7:02 pm
Tags: , , , ,

I realized the other day that I have never really researched the Randall side of the family tree.  Thankful Randall is my 6th Great Grandmother.  She married John Maxson the 3rd.  Thankful was born about 1703 in Stonington, CT and died in 1785 in Westerly, RI.  Her parents were Matthew Randall and Eleanor Utter.  Matthew was born 1671 in Hopkinton, RI and died December 19, 1735 in Westerly.  Matthew’s father is John Randall Sr. (1629-1685) and seems to be the immigrant ancestor, born in Bath, England and died in Westerly.  I’ve always wanted to visit Bath.  I’m a big Jane Austen fan and a lot of her books take place in Bath.  John Randall Sr’s parents were Matthew Randall and Elizabeth Moorford.  I go back one more generation to another John Randall but his details are sketchy.  I guess it’s ironic that some people might consider tracing a line in your family back 11 generations something but not me.  There aren’t a lot of details attached to this line.  Not any book references or back up.  Anyone know a good reference material source for them?  If so, do share. 

John Maxson the 3rd and Thankful Randall are grandparents 2 times of mine.  Through their sons Matthew and David.  More cousins marrying cousins I suppose.
