Christoph/Christopher Schmidt from Marburg
Posted by: Katherine Joyce (ID *****5923) Date: June 02, 2014 at 06:00:33

I am trying to locate any information on Christopher D. Schmidt who was born in or near Marburg on 30 October 1833. His father was Christian Schmidt and his mother was Margaretta Schmidt. I do not know when he arrived in the US but it was before 1875 when he married my great grandmother. His death certificate stated that he had arrived in the US about 1847. The story handed down was that he was smuggled out of Germany in or under potato sacks so that he would not have to go into military service. Any help will be appreciated.
