Angela, had an illegitimate child, Catharina, (19.03.1879, Billed. Catharina, married on 22.02.1903, to Mathmias Steuer. Mathias Steier (?)age26 with wife Katharina (age 26) went to visit cousin Wendel Gautuer, in Trenton, from Brem/NY. with Schiff Kronprinz Wilhelm.(DD)
According to the church records Weigand, is the correct spelling.
Checking the Ellis Island, lots of Weigand came from a place called "Gador." the official village name for "Foderhausen" is "Gad." and went to Trenton, NJ. Gad is close to Tschakowa. But there were many Weigand's in Warjasch also.
