In Reply to: CENSUS LOOKUP FOR SCHIMWEG & OXMAN FAMILIES by molly reich of 65474

Hi Molly.

1920 Missouri, St. Louis County, Ferdinand, ED 146, p 2B, Visit 29
Farm (owned free)
Henry Schimweg, Head, 60, born Missouri, parents born Germany, occupation unreadable.
Mary, Wife, 50, born Missouri, parents born Germany
Harry, Son, 20 (married), born Missouri
Anne, Daughter, 19, born Missouri
??, Son, 17, born Missouri
Albert, Son, 14, born Missouri
Joseph, Son, 12, born Missouri

Since Schimweg appears to be a very uncommon name, I searched the St. Louis city death records (1850-1908) for the last name. This is what it returned:

Schimweg, Anna
Death Date: 28 Jun 1870 Volume: 3 Page: 279 County Library: RDSL 11
Missouri Archive: C 10369 SLGS Rolls: 311
Address: Near St Charles Rock Rd

Schimweg, Henry
Death Date: 17 Dec 1888 Volume: 22 Page: 496 County Library: RDSL 31
Missouri Archive: C 10387 SLGS Rolls: 322
Address: Calvary & Bircher

Schimweg, Lisette
Death Date: 12 Mar 1879 Volume: 9 Page: 551 County Library: RDSL 19
Missouri Archive: C 645-1 SLGS Rolls: 315
Address: Bellefontaine Road

In the 1890 St. Louis, Missouri city directory there was only one Schimweg. He must be related to Henry, above, as they lived about the same place.

There were 3 Oxmans in the St. Louis city death index:
Oxman, John
Death Date: 14 Feb 1882 Volume: 12 Page: 490 Birth Place: St Louis Mo Cemetery: New Pickers
County Library: RDSL 21 Missouri Archive: C 10378 SLGS Rolls: 317
Address: Oak Hill Beckville

Oxman, Mamie
Death Date: 03 Jul 1892 Volume: 27 Page: 185 County Library: RDSL 36
Missouri Archive: C 10392 SLGS Rolls: 324
Address: 4366 Beck

Oxman, Mary E
Death Date: 16 Aug 1877 Volume: 8 Page: 38 Birth Place: Missouri Cemetery: New Pickers
County Library: RDSL 18
Missouri Archive: C 10375 SLGS Rolls: 314

If you know when Henry Schimweg died, you will be able to order his death certificate. It should have the names of his parents, and possibly their birthplaces.

Happy hunting!
