Maternal lines include women from Hanover, Prussia and include: Margaret Seaton b. 1830-37, was a stowaway to America (discovered on board and worked in kitchen for passage!--peeled FAST potatoes!) landed at one of the Gulf ports and married Joseph Obliss, they were known to have lived in Bay St. Louis, Miss., and she went then to New Orleans, and finally to Pensacola where she died in 1910. Next, I need a link to my Elizabeth Bauers, b. 1824, Hanover, Prussia, m. Adam Crooke in 1851 in Pensacola, Fl. Her marriage records her name as "Powers", but it is believed to have been misspelling of Bauers. Last, I have a woman who was related to one of these women, her name is Anna Siedentopf, she is in a group photo published by the TT Wentworth Museum Newsletter that appeared in 1895 of the West Wright St. Lutherian Church Ladies Guild, Pensacola, Florida. She is identified as MRS. Siedentopf, and appears to be in her 40's.
I am particularly intrested in finding origins, as well as areas of origin for the surnames, Obliss, Bauers, and any possible connection of either of them to the Siedentopf family in Hanover. If you may have stumbled upon any records of these families I would deeply appreciate your response.
