In Reply to: Bohm/Roberts/Dorn - New Orleans c. 1880s. by Sheryl Bohm of 18874

Hi Sheryl,

Not sure what you have so will give whatever I find.

1900 NEW ORLEANS WARD 2, ORLEANS, LA
BOHM

Isaac, age 54, house painter, born Feb. 1846, LA father born Denmark mother born PA, married 26 years

Alice, age 45, wife, born Feb. 1855, LA father born England mother born Germany, married 26 years, 9 children born 7 living

Thomas, age 25, son, laborer, clothing, born Jan. 1875, LA

Lillie, age 21, daughter, born Oct. 1878, LA

Mary, age 19, daughter, apprentice, millinery, born May 1881, LA

Alice, age 11, daughter, born Jan. 1889 LA

Beatrice, age 8, daughter, born Nov. 1891 LA

Isabel, age 6, daughter, born Jan. 1894 LA

ROBERTS
James, age 23, nephew, driver, wholesale meat, born June 1876 OH both parents born LA

All children show both parents born LA
If they were married 26 years that would make marriage about 1874
**********************

1900 NEW ORLEANS WARD 9, ORLEANS, LA
BOHM,

Edward, age 22, clerk, clothing, born LA both parents born LA, married 0 years

Mary, age 20, wife, born LA father born Germany, mother born LA, married 0 years

**********************




Found them!


Louisiana Marriages, 1718-1925 about Alice Roberts
Name:       Alice Roberts
Spouse:       Isaac Bohm
Marriage Date:       13 Jul 1873
Marriage Place:       Orleans

*******************

I found this family in 1880 census - not sure it is them but it may be.

1880 BAY SAINT LOUIS, HANCOCK, MISSISSIPPI
BOHON (as indexed)

J. (as indexed, look like I. in image), age 37, painter, born LA both parents born Germany

Alice, age 27, born LA both parents born Germany

John, son, age 5, born LA both parents born LA

H.E., son, born LA both parents born LA

Mary, age 1, born LA both parents born LA

**************
Problems with above: John should be Thomas but maybe that was a middle name
Mary should be Lillie ? and there is a Mary in 1900 born 1881 ?

Reasons to think it may be right family: Initial of husband does look like I. in the image - his is born LA and close to right age
Alice is close to right age and birthplace
H.E. could be your Edward
Could not find family in LA - all these folks born LA which fits.

*******************
Here are three births I found on ancestry.com for children of Isaac and Alice

******************************

These next look like deaths for Isaac and Alice which explains why I did not find them after 1900 census.

New Orleans, Louisiana Death Records Index, 1804-1949 about Alice Roberts Bohm
Name:       Alice Roberts Bohm
Age:       48 Yrs
Death Date:       9 Aug 1906

Name:       Isaac Bohm
Age:       59 Yrs
Death Date:       28 Jul 1901
Color:       W
Page:       510
Volume:       125

According to the 1900 census Alice had 9 children with 7 living so your Edward had 8 siblings - 6 are in 1900 census and then Edward himself makes the 7th living child.

I looked for the children in 1910 - this look like Lillie and Isabel

1910 PRECINCT 2, TERREBONNE, LA
GAUTREAUX

Leonse, age 33, agent St. oil Co., born LA both parents born LA, married 5 years

Lilly, age 29, wife, born LA both parents born LA, married 5 years, 1 child born 1 living

Donnel, age 4, son, born LA both parents born LA

BOHM
Isabell, age 16, sister-in-law, born LA, both parents born LA

****************

1910 NEW ORLEANS WARD 1, ORLEANS, LA
BOHM

Edward, age 33, cashier, insurance Co., born LA both parents born Germany, 1st marriage

Mary, wife, age 30, born LA both parents born Germany, 1st marriage, married 10 years, 1 child born, 1 living

Robert, son, age 4, born LA both parents born LA

GUERIN
Emile, brother-in-law, age 25, speculator, real estate, born LA both parents born Germany

** brother-in-law's surname not Dorn as you have for Mary ?? Is this the right Edward and family ?

****************

I didn't find the rest but the girls were likely married so would need married names - did not find Thomas.
