Georg HEITZMAN & Philipina WASMUND in Syracuse NY
Posted by: Bob Heitzman (ID *****7670) Date: January 06, 2007 at 08:49:11

I'm looking to contact descendents of my g3uncle, Georg Heitzman, who married Philipina Wasmund. The family settled in Syracuse (Onondaga Co) NY in the late 1850's. Here are other details I can provide, based on Census records, Georg's will, and Syracuse City Directory listings. Every year, in every document, the names of George’s wife and daughter are spelled differently, owing to varying levels of literacy in the family.
Thanks, Bob Heitzman

By 1860, George is continuing his trade as a cooper, and has bought a home at 187 McBride in a neighborhood of German laborers in Syracuse’s 2nd Ward. He has married Philipina Goettel and they have 3 children: Phillipina, Catharina, and Maria. Phillipina was born in Bavaria, but the younger two were born in New York State; two other children are born during the next decade: George in 1864, and Carolina in 1869. By 1865, the family has moved to 184 McBride, where they reside together until George’s death in 1872. Son George stays with his mother at 184 for several years; daughter Mary joins them in 1884 with her daughter. Daughter Phillipena “Phoebe” married Charles Wasmund.
