In September, 2002, I received the following message from Mary Ross.
My great grandfather, Johannes Weisenauer emigrated with a Fickeisen
family. He arrived 1 Jan 1855 in New Orleans and travelled from there
up the river to Ohio. Johannes was orignially in Galion, then moved
to Lykens, also in Crawford County, Ohio. On the ship with Johannes
Sophia Fickeisen, age 46,
Elise, age 21,
Julia, age 19,
Jacob, age 15,
Jakob, age 12 (lost overboard),
Charles, age 9,
Louis, age 8.
Our family lore associated with Johannes Weisenauer was that he came
to America with some young men that had relatives in Ohio, so he came
to Ohio too, and that one of the boys he came with was lost overboard.
Are you familiar with these names?
I think my connection might
be with Fickeisens in Galion, Ohio.
Thanks for any help you can give.
If anyone has information relating to Mary's request, I will pass it
on to her.
