Looking for additional information in Germany or U.S.A. associated with Heinrich Edward "Henry" JAHN, b. June 1853 in Germany (in the Cologne/Koln area, or possibly Bremen) and d. 1920s in Osage County, Kansas, USA. Grave location is unknown. Henry emigrated to United States from Germany in 1872 according to 1900 Osage Co., Kansas census record. Henry JAHN was very possibly passenger "Hein. (Heinrich) JOHN" (sic?: many transcriber errors of surname JAHN in USA), age 28, laborer, from Germany who arrived at Port of New York on 7 Sept. 1872 from Liverpool, England on the ship R.M.S. Abyssinia. Henry JOHNS (sic) became a U.S. naturalized citizen in 1889 according to the 1920 Osage Co., Kansas census record where he resided with his wife, Isabella, and daughter, Emma.
Heinrich Edward "Henry" JAHN married Isabella Willamena BRENDEL from Prussia/Germany sometime between July 1883 and March 1884 - location in U.S. unknown. Isabella BRENDEL was b. Dec. 1853 in Germany and reportedly came from a "monied" family that lived in Bremen, or possibly Colgne/Koln. According to the manifest of the German ship Cambria, Isabella BRENDEL was a 31 year old single female from Prussia who arrived at the Port of New York without any other known family members on 30 Sept. 1882. The Cambria had departed from Hamburg, Germany and sailed via LeHavre, France to the United States.
Henry and Isabella (BRENDEL) JAHN migrated from New York to Illinois, thence to Osage County, Kansas (according to various census records) where they resided as of Nov. 1884 when their first of five children was born. All five children - Minnie (b. Nov. 1884), Mary Isabella (b. Feb. 09, 1887), Emma E. (b. Mar. 09, 1889), Ernest Henry (b. Nov. 24, 1890) and Heinrich Edward "Henry" Jr. (b. Feb. 1895) - were born in Scranton City, Osage Co., Kansas. By 1910, the family resided in Burlingame City, Osage Co., Kansas.
Henry JAHN Sr. worked as a coal miner in Osage Co., Kansas from probably about 1885 to after 1920 when he was in his late 60s. After Henry Sr. died, Isabella moved to El Sereno, California (Los Angeles suburb) where she resided with two of her daughters, Emma and Mary, until her death sometime after 1930. Her gravesite is presently unknown.
Eldest daughter Minnie died prior to April 1910. She married twice and had one daughter, Isabella TREBBE (b. abt. 1902 in Osage Co., Kansas), by her first husband, William "Bill" TREBBE of Burlingame, Osage Co., Kansas. Isabella TREBBE married Arthur "Art" WASHINGTON. Minnie (JAHN) TREBBE's second husband was Jacob W. "Jake" TERRIL, son of L. C. TERRIL of Burlingame, Kansas.
The youngest son of Isabella and Henry JAHN Sr., Heinrich Edward "Henry" JAHN Jr., removed from Osage Co., Kansas to San Diego, California with his only child, Millard Henry JAHN (b. Sept. 10, 1918 in Osage Co., Kansas), probably soon after Henry JAHN Jr's wife, Isabell CROUCHER (b. 1896 in Kansas), died in 1945 probably in Osage Co., Kansas - gravesite unknown. Descendants of Millard H. JAHN still reside in the San Diego area.
Living descendant of Heinrich Edward "Henry" JAHN Sr. has copy of 1800s to early 1900s family photo of three JAHN brothers, Charles "Charlie," Otto and Beu or Bea, but their relationship to Heinrich Edward "Henry" JAHN Sr. is still unknown. Any help???
Please email me directly with additional information regarding these JAHN or BRENDEL family connections in Germany and the U.S.A. Research assistance will be greatly appreciated.
